Whether you are opening a new business or re-designing an existing business, signage will be part of your budget. You will want to select the most cost effective product that will meet your specific needs – long term or short term. Many signs are meant to last at least a year but many times will stay up for a long time. Your sign maker can help you determine the best product and get the best value for your investment and they will work with you to make sure they meet your expectations.


Permanent signs can be mounted on buildings, monument signs, walls and posts and if it’s outside, the sign material cost will be significantly different than a temporary sign. Permanent signs can be made of metal, rigid plastic, acrylic and plexiglass, wood, or fiberboard, polycarbonate and aluminum, they can be illuminated or even reflective, or be done with channel letters. Signs provide important information – directions, schedules, hours, room numbers and more. You will also have to consider environment changes – is the weather typically hot or damp, will the sign be in direct sunlight or in a shaded area? These are things that should be considered to ensure the life of the sign. If you are leasing a space in a strip mall you will need to check with the property owners to find out what they will require. You also can’t forget about any local government restrictions – take a moment to contact your city hall to find out what can and can’t be done and if a permit is needed. The cost of a permit can be incorporated into an estimate and many times information from the property owner is required on the sign permit. A quick phone call to your city hall zoning department can keep you from making a costly mistake.

Another option for permanent signs is vehicle lettering and wraps – just think of the exposure you will get when your company brand is visible to hundreds of people every day just by driving! These can be as simple or elaborate as you want and be fun, colorful and informative.

Have you considered wall or door graphics?  These can create a pleasing, fun, motivational and inspirational environment for your clients while they are in your space.



Temporary signs can be made of light weight plastic, PVC, vinyl, canvas, magnetic, foamcore and gator foam. All of these options can be designed to fit any budget and your sign maker should be able to work with you to meet those needs. A lightweight banner or yard sign is a cost effective option for special events and depending on the verbiage – you may even be able to re-use it for even more cost savings. Magnetic signs can be used to promote a business or an event on a vehicle. Yard signs and banners are great for graduations, proms, holidays, special restaurant offers or promotions for a grand opening or under new management! These can be as simple or elaborate as you want them to be and can be done in many materials and sizes to fit your specific needs.
