Improve Communication And Reduce The Costs Of Quality With In-House Graphic Design

The term costs of quality is used to quantify the total amount of money spent preventing, detecting, and remediating product issues related to quality. It first appeared in a 1956 article for the Harvard Business Review, and it’s been used ever since as a way to gauge project efficiency.

When ordering signage, common costs of quality include:

  • Time and labor hours spent modifying digital design proofs to meet client standards
  • Non-compliance fines and design remediation costs for signs that fail to meet the standards stipulated in the Bakersfield Municipal Code
  • Project management issues when trying to keep multiple providers on the same page
  • Backtracking for color correction when signs do not perfectly match digital design proofs

When outsourcing graphic design to a third-party provider, the costs of quality typically increase as project management becomes more complex.

For example, when collaborating on digital design proofs, you’ll need to double-check with the manufacturer to make sure your design does not exceed their capabilities. In some cases, you won’t know until after the sign is delivered, and if the end-result is less-than-impressive, you’ll need to start the process all over.

Depending on the graphic design team’s level of experience in the sign industry, you may also be solely responsible for keeping your design compliant with local sign codes, which means studying the Bakersfield Municipal Code on your own time. Finally, depending on the color capabilities of your sign shop, it may be necessary to alter your design after approval.

Fortunately, in-house graphic design does away with all of these problems and their accompanying costs of quality. Our graphic design team works directly with our sign manufacturers, so you’ll never have to guess what’s possible with color or print quality, and you’ll never need to backpedal on your design. We also know Bakersfield’s sign code, so we can guarantee 100% compliance with municipal design standards, or show you what sign types are exempt from these requirements.

Some additional benefits of our in-house graphic design capabilities include:

  • Reduced project management headaches, as you do not need to drive back-and-forth to multiple shops, send dozens of emails, deal with digital file compatibility problems, or brief new team members during project handoffs (e.g. explaining to the manufacturer what you were going for with your design)
  • Improved communications, as you manage the entire team from a single point of contact, allowing you to make changes or request updates with one quick phone call
  • Economies of scale, as you can use the same finalized design proof to print multiple runs of your sign
  • Speedy turnaround time, as we move your order seamlessly from design to manufacturing
  • Easy design tweaks, as the entire team stays apprised of any changes that are being made in real-time, so you can feel comfortable changing your design when inspiration strikes, without throwing the entire process into disarray

I had a great experience with the service I received from Michael, Trinh and TM signs and graphics. Their service was fast, high quality, and the price was affordable. I had informed TM signs and graphics that I needed the project done within a few days, so I was very impressed when it took them less than a weekend to get it done, and I was even more impressed when we spoke about the cost of the project (hint. hint. It was less than other quotes). I 100% recommend giving TM signs a try. I'm very pleased with the services they offer, and I will continue to use them in the future.

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.
