The Key to a Successful Sign Design Process

Unique sign design

The key to having a successful sign design is having a success-oriented sign design process. An effective sign design process means you are able to execute goals and objectives, achieve desired outcomes, and do so with little to no resistance or complication. Sometimes that means hiring professional assistance to help guide your designs, your approach, and, most importantly, your process.

Sign Design First, Then Project Permits

The first piece to the sign creation puzzle is the design. This is also one of the most important stages of the process as a whole. The design determines the concept, sign type, material, colors, etc., which directly affect how consumers interact with your brand and business. Sign design is an area where experience can mean the difference between product success and failure.

Once the design has been chosen, it is important to determine the permitting for the project. After all, if local legislation prevents you from displaying your sign in a given location, then it is best to know before you begin manufacturing. This is typically one of the most overlooked steps in the sign creation process and where most amateurs make their mistakes.

Manufacturing and Installation

After you have acquired the necessary permits to display your sign of choice, it is time to start building it. Signs can vary drastically in terms of materials, styles, and construction methods. That is why it is crucial to have an experienced team that can troubleshoot when obstacles arise.

Finally, once the sign is complete, you can install the sign. More often than not, this is easier said than done. Some signs will need to be hung up high on a façade. In that case, CDL drivers will need to be hired to operate the necessary trucks, cranes, and mechanical equipment. It is best to plan for these steps far in advance.

Trying to create your own sign design process is difficult if you have no prior industry experience or knowledge. That is why Precision Sign Company is here to help. Contact us today to receive a quote on our signature sign approach.
