So we are on the same page...

  1. In most cases, your logo or business artwork needs to be in a vector format for sign production. A vector file allows the design to be disassembled piece by piece (PDF, Ai, EPS). Photo-image type files (like JPG, BMP, TIFF, and PNG) are used for digital printing of posters and banners. Your salesperson can help define these files for you.

  2. Your Landlord will dictate what type, style, and size of sign you can have on your building. Get a copy of your Landlord's sign criteria, it will tell us what you can and cannot have on the building.

  3. The City Sign Code dictates the location, size, and type of sign that your Landlord can allow you to have. We have access to the sign code online and will access this for you.

  4. State clearly your wishes and desires for your sign. Sign Salespeople are not psychic, so the better you communicate with them on colors, style, type, shape, and content, the better chance the designer will have to create a sign that you like and within your budget.

  5. Establish a budget. Knowing what you can afford will help you make better sign buying choices.

  6. Don't buy on price alone. There are too many options that can turn into problems down the road when the price is the only consideration.

  7. Establish a relationship of trust with your sign salesperson and let them earn your business.
