Festivities are all going to be kicking off soon. First we have Halloween, closely followed by Guy Fawkes Night, then of course Christmas, followed by the New Year and with it all the sales! These events often require signs and banners to promote festive activities, increase brand awareness or just to shout louder about what it is you do in this hectic seasonal period.
We thought we’d give you a little helping hand in case you’re looking for a sign company (seeing as we are one!) and offer you some top tips (because we are nice like that).
1) What kind of sign are you looking for? Choosing a sign company with many years’ experience will ensure they have the knowledge to advise you on what the best sign for your business is. You’ll need a sign maker who is up-to-date with the most recent materials and printing technologies, a sign maker who will think outside the box for you and speak up if they believe a better solution is out there than the one you have requested. A sign maker who you can trust has delivered their very best for your business and budget. Someone with all these attributes isn’t always easy to find (We know one or two though…!)
2) Are there any legal requirements that must be met? Make sure when looking for a signage company you choose to work with one who understands all the relevant legislations – it will make your life a lot easier! From planning permission through to using the correct reflective materials on health & safety signs or vehicle graphics – there’s a lot of red tape out there and you’ll need to be safe in the knowledge all the work carried out is above board.
3) Do they have any testimonials? You really need to be able to have the confidence in the work that is going to be carried out. A large exterior sign is the first thing your customers will see – it’s important it’s not only fitted to a high standard, but safely too. Likewise, you’ll want to check that they will tidy up any mess they make – a good sign fitter will leave the premises as they found them.
So, to sum up; experience, knowledge and trust are the three key things to focus on! If you want any more information, then please get in touch. We have more than 20 years’ experience in the sign making industry and a nationwide network of centres.
