While designing a sign sounds relatively simple, many elements are involved, including the sign permitting process. Before you are able to display your sign, you need to fill out and submit permits to display your sign legally. If you’re in the middle of this process, Springfield Sign has some tips for you.
The sign permitting process can require many steps to receive proper authorization. These components can be anything from documenting the type of sign, features, sign value, and location. It can also include who else you need to give copies of the permits to such as city utilities, landlords, the sign company, and more. Before you start the sign permitting process, read the directions and documents carefully before you submit them to make sure you’ve done everything necessary. Sometimes permits include tricky wording or don’t highlight essential directions that can easily be missed. One overlooked detail could result in a delayed installation date.
Follow All Landlord Guidelines
If your sign is going to be installed on a property you’re renting, it’s important to follow the guidelines your landlord has set for the building. This can include:
Get All the Measurements
When getting your sign approved, accurate measurements of your sign are critical so you can get the sign right where it needs to be. There are many measurements that need to be included, such as the total width of the sign, the height, and any extremities that hang off the edges such as lights or decorations. Any false measurements could get your sign taken down or moved if it doesn’t meet the permit requirements of the city.
