We know how challenging it can be when you’re doing anything for the first time; that’s why we at Signergy have decided to make your sign buying process an easy one.
As an expert sign design company in Los Angeles, let’s show you the step-by-step process to a successful signage project. We’ll also answer some of the questions you may have about sign buying.
We dedicated this page on our website to you—especially if you’re a first-time sign buyer. Below are the steps we take towards securing a visually pleasing sign that’s top quality, doesn’t cost much, and gets approved by building owners and the city.
The first step towards a successful sign buying process is to find out what you need—the type of signage design you have envisioned. When you show interest in doing business with us, our specialist will contact you either personally or through the phone.
While we speak with you, we’ll get a clear picture of what you desire to achieve and why you want signage for your Los Angeles business. We will then take photos and necessary measurements of your area or business building and other site survey process.
Using the information we got from step one, we’ll begin to design a custom sign for your Los Angeles business. Our expert graphics designer will handle the design process, using the information obtained from our discussion to communicate your business idea—the feel and the look you want to portray for your brand. We do a scale drawing and give you a photo representation of what the sign will look like after installation.
When we are done designing, we’ll present your design to you for approval. After you consent to the design and give us the go-ahead, you’ll make a down payment of 50%. Note that we do not accept Visa and MasterCard payment.
This stage is where a permit is needed. Before we make an exterior signage installation, we need to get a license, which the city will give. We’ll handle this stage’s technicalities and acquire the required city permits for you—a city permit is issued at a cost. Also, if the sign within the premises. We’ll get the legal description of the property and a letter of authorization from the landlord.
After all the paperwork, we move to this stage, and other details have been worked out and approved. This stage is where we begin the fabrication—we make the sign. How long it takes to fabricate signage is dependent on the type of signage you asked us to design.
We handle different signage designs, so our sign specialists will provide you with an estimated timeline of when the fabrication will be completed and ready to install. We’ll also consistently keep you updated about the progress of the signage project.
The step is the last of the signage project where your sign is complete and ready for installation—we’ll also handle this stage for you. Our trained signage installation personnel will ensure this stage is as smooth as possible. We’ll properly install your sign, and our staff will clean up after themselves.
