Questions to Ask About Sign Manufacturing

The world of sign manufacturing is larger than most people realize and can range from warnings to advertising. Before you get a sign made, you should consider a number of factors to ensure that your road, lawn, or company is appropriately well-marked. Here are some questions to ask yourself as well as sign manufacturers before you buy.

  • What kind of sign is needed?
    Manufacturers can help you decide this. Many specialize in almost any material you could need, from neon to wood for restaurants as well as retroreflective material for warnings and traffic.

  • Do you offer installation?
    Most companies will offer installation for larger jobs. This is particularly important for electric and neon signs as well as large billboards. Ensure the manufacturer is aware of how close to traffic or the highway they are allowed to build.

  • Will my sign meet safety and environmental regulations?
    If you are looking for a safety or traffic sign, you will want to make sure that it is being constructed to meet any standards in place in your state. For banners going on lawns and yards, ensure that they are not too large for their location. Environmentally "green" electric signs can save you money in the long run, while properly manufactured lawn posters can reduce waste.

  • Which roads do you place signs on the most?
    If a manufacturer frequently installs on roadways, request to know their most popular locations. Often, this can give you a heads up on advertising.

  • What fees can I expect?
    Ask if there is a cost for an estimate, as well as a separate installation fee. Furthermore, check on the material used, as you will want the highest quality wood or metal for the best price.

    Professionals who use and make signs come from every walk of life; from construction crews to your neighbor. Even you have probably made a sign in your lifetime for your lawn or your springtime yard sale. Experts who profit from this business cater to all of these individuals, making designs for every occasion from bar neon signs to safety warnings. Many tasks include making door labels and road warnings to notify drivers of obstacles.

    Using large scale printers, a company can print over-sized vinyl banners for advertising. Another job might entail making warnings for road safety. Another still might require a simple family sign outdoors to put on one’s lawn. Restaurants need neon, businesses want back-lit electric boards, and traffic needs labels. This business is booming from manufacturing street signs to commercial billboards.

    In becoming a sign maker, it takes a strong grasp of the English language (spelling and communication), manufacturing skills, and a bit of design know-how. Graphic designers can come in and out of this business, making custom neon lights for bars or an engraving to hang on a house’s mailbox. These businesses enjoy many projects from homeowners as well as other businesses and the local government. Who makes those big directional boards on the highway? What about stop and other traffic warnings? Design companies!

    While there isn’t necessarily any formal training required of a potential sign business, it’s good to have received training in graphic design and or metal-cutting. The latter is especially important for engraved metals including graphics made for automobiles and messages on wood-carved pieces. Professionals should also be savvy in laws pertaining to signs, particularly safety and road labels that must be clear and reflective.

    To add a custom touch to your lawn or a traffic warning, sign-making is a social necessity and a flourishing business.
