4 Questions To Ask Your Sign Making Company

When considering your custom signs for your business, commercial, or retail establishment, there are some important questions to ask to make sure this process runs as smoothly as possible.

4 Questions to Ask Your Sign Making Company

1. What type of signs do you produce?

Choose a sign maker that provides a wide range of custom signage including:

  • Indoor signs for promotional sales, directional assistance, and essential information
  • Outdoor business signs to announce your company and attract new customers
  • Illuminated signs for high visibility during nighttime hours

The right office signage provider will offer different types of indoor signs such as lobby signs, banners and posters, along with wall and floor graphics. You should also expect a variety of outdoor signs to fit your space allocation and the building’s facade including signs with fabricated lettering, window graphics, and illuminated signs.

2. Will you have access to graphic design support?

Most business owners have a good idea of the signage they need but don’t know exactly how to translate those ideas into a sign with clean graphics and good messaging. This is where a graphic designer that knows the psychology of signage will be of benefit. Signs have such limited space that it is important for a designer to combine the right colors, text styles, images and messaging that is short and direct, yet powerful. Certified Signs also offers sign and graphics consultations to fully realize your vision.

3. How long does it take to create signage?

It is critical to ask this question before starting, especially if you’re working with a tight deadline for a grand opening or you have a large sales and marketing campaign scheduled. You should consider the time it takes to design the signs, approve and finalize the design, create the signs and if needed, install the signs. Depending on the type and size of your new business signage, it could take anywhere from a few days up to a few weeks to complete the entire project. We provide clear timelines and transparent communication to make sure we complete our projects on time.

4. What experience and reputation do you have?
