You’ve decided to create a sign for your business and are wondering where to begin. We’re here with step-by-step instructions on how to select the perfect sign for your business. There are many things to consider when selecting and designing a sign for your storefront, but it is important to go through the steps in the proper order to ensure that you do not end up with a sign that you are not able to use. 

The first thing you should do when designing a sign for your business is to set a budget and hire a sign company. Deciding on your budget is hugely important in making sure that you don’t end up with a design that you are unable to afford. Set your budget first, then your sign company will be able to help you design a sign within that budget.

Next, you should look up the zoning regulations in your area. Before you start to design something, check your local zoning regulations to ensure that the sign you create will be permitted in your area. Some regulations that you have to follow include: size of the sign, color, font, text, materials etc. Know these regulations before you start creating a design that can’t be used. 

Once you’ve set your budget and learned about your local zoning regulations, it’s time to decide which type of sign will be best for your business and your budget. There are a number of different types of signs, including fabric signs, wood signs, painted glass, channel lettering signs, awning signs, etc. Work with your marketing team and your sign company to determine what will be most effective for your marketing strategy and will also keep you within your budget. 

Now that you have decided on the type of sign that best fits your needs, it is time to create the design. Signs can be as simple as a logo or a business name or a little more detailed. No matter which route you decide to take, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you want to make sure that the sign is visually appealing and will grab the attention of potential customers. Next, you want to make sure that it is not too cluttered or difficult to read. Lastly, it is beneficial to choose something that will be easy for you to maintain. 

Working with a professional sign company will ensure that you are able to create and display a professional, effective sign that does not hurt your company’s budget.
