How To Choose The Right Sign Shop

How to Choose The Right Sign Shop

Well placed, eye-catching signage can do anything, including attract new clients, provide direction to existing clients, and increase visibility within the community.

When it comes to finding a sign shop in the Bakersfield and San Joaquin Valley areas, there is no shortage of options. To find the right one for you, here are four points to consider.

Full Service

Find a full-service sign shop that can accommodate all of your needs. This will save you the money and time spent finding different service providers for each step of the signage creation process. It also makes the collaboration process much more manageable when working with the same people throughout.

Here are some of the services you want to see from any sign shop you consider.

  • Permits and Applications

There may be specific rules and regulations around signage in your building or area. A full-service signage shop should know precisely what is needed and be able to aid in the process of getting the required permits.

  • Design

With limitless design options available, the creation process can be overwhelming. Finding a signage shop that can help guide you through the design process is essential.

  • Manufacture

A signage provider that can also manufacture your signs will save you time and money.

  • Install

A good sign shop should also be able to provide installation services. This will mean a faster turnaround time between when your signs are finished to the time they are put up.

  • Service and Repair

If your signage service and repair providers are the same folks who manufactured your signage, it will make for a far more manageable and less costly repair when the time comes.

Location

Choosing a location that is local to your business helps get the job completed quicker. Plus, you are supporting the local economy, which means you are supporting your neighbors and their families. As a local business owner yourself, you understand why that is so important.

Reputation

It’s essential to check out the online reviews for any signage company you consider hiring. Look for a sign company with a great reputation. Don’t just look at the most recent reviews. Investigate a year or two back – looking to see if the quality and service is being maintained over time. Problems can arise with any project. Look for hints that the company made an effort to fix the situation and put things right.

Experience

Lastly, you need to be sure that the company you hire has a proven track record in the services they are offering. Hiring an inexperienced sign company could lead to more errors and issues than if you had hired a company with lots of experience in the signage industry.

Excellent service and quality :) Trinh was awesome to work with. Their expertise and creativity brought my vision for the in-office sign to life. I started with a small project to swap out the name of the previous owner on the roadside monument, which resulted in a clean and visible result. They listened and considered all my ideas and helpfully steered me in the right direction to get both an optimal and personal result. Patents and staff alike have complimented TM's work and I would recommend their team for anyone looking for a quality and thoughtful outcome.

Hats off to Trinh and her team. We needed new signage on quite a few of our office doors. Other companies we checked in with were not able to come out until the following week of our request, Trinh showed up within an hour to measure for what we needed. The work was performed within a few days perfectly! We would highly recommend giving this company an opportunity to earn your business. They did ours this time and future times to come.

When the best man at my wedding was unable to make it last minute, Bakersfield Signs and Graphics came to the rescue. They custom made a cardboard cutout of the best man. It was a huge hit at my wedding and everyone loved it! They made it so fast and it looked exactly like the other groomsmen. I couldn't believe how well it turned out. Thank you so much for bringing some much needed laughs and fun during times like these.

BSG did a fantastic job re-designing the Yard Sign logo for ICO Gardening. The original picture was old and couldn't be used due to low resolution. They had to create a new one to the exact picture. They were quick and efficient in competing my order.
