You can consult with your Account Representative by phone, email, or in person if you are in our local service area. We will listen to your vision for the project, your timeline, and work with you to determine the best options for your location. Whether you need to implement existing brand standards, or need a new identity concept for your business; our team has the skill to get the job done. Your Account Representative will also work with our Code and Permit staff so we can design to the regulations that affect your location.

Survey

As part of the design process  one of our team members will typically take measurements of the location where the signage will be installed.  Our designers use this data to create scaled renderings of your project.

The designer assigned to your project will assess the materials submitted and put together a presentation including a shop drawing, to scale, with detailed fabrication method and materials information. Your presentation typically also includes a rendering of how the sign will appear at your location.

If you need new artwork our designers can help you develop graphics for your business. We are also pros at following brand standard guides to maintain consistent identity across multiple locations. Our designers will partner with you to determine that any art files you have submitted are suitable for production. Let us know if you need help with image sourcing of photos to be included in your signs.

Some locations or concepts require outside-the-box fabrication methods. Since our designers are on-site with the fabrication team we can work together to deliver solutions.

The Approval Process

You will receive a PDF of the design and a price quote by email. Your Account Representative can answer any questions you have about technical details, color options, or overall design. Let us know if we were on the mark, or if you have a revision request. Also, let us know if your design suits your budget, as  materials and methods may be changed to fit your needs.
