Learn A Little, Save A Lot: Consult With Sign Makers In Bakersfield, CA

Learn a Little, Save a Lot: Consult with Sign Makers in Bakersfield, CA

Since signs are some of the most basic tools for business advertising, and they have been used since the age of antiquity, people tend to underestimate what goes into a successful sign order.

Not only do you need a dynamite design; you need to select appropriate materials for your weather and budget, find the right display space, calculate the proper luminance levels for lighted signs, get your sign permit or variance approved, coordinate the installation, and on and on it goes.

Rushing into your order without doing your research—or better yet, booking a free consultation with pro sign makers—can lead to a lot of costly “learning opportunities” that could have been avoided. Indeed, a five minute conversation could save you thousands of dollars in remediation costs, sign incompatibilities, and sign code violations, and when you consult with the sign makers at TM Signs & Graphics, it’s 100% free.

That’s what today’s post is all about. Read on to learn how a quick (and FREE) consultation could help you learn a little and save a lot, or call (661)-379-6545 to speak directly with our team in Bakersfield, ON.

Skip The Costly Sign Lessons: Consult With Pro Sign Makers

Without the guidance of pro sign makers, your sign project could be plagued by:

  • Major permitting problems—Most business signs require permits in order to be displayed in Kern County, and failure to obtain the necessary permissions can result in serious fines. And even if your sign is exempt from permit requirements, failure to comply with local design and development standards can lead to more trouble and remediation costs.

    By taking a few minutes to speak with a pro sign maker, you can get a crystal-clear understanding of your sign code and permitting requirements, so you can make an informed decision for your business.

    Want to create a one-of-a-kind lighted sign? Our pro sign makers can help with the ideation, electrical proposal, and variance application, and we’ll keep the design 100% compliant with local sign codes while you focus on bringing your creative vision to life.

    Want to skip the permitting stage altogether? Our pro sign makers can recommend signs exempt from permitting requirements, and streamline your code-compliant design.

  • Serious sign incompatibilities or inconsistencies—When designing a sign system, consistency is key. Using the same brand colors, materials, installation hardware, and fonts will go a long way for building brand awareness and consumer confidence. But this is often easier said than donein fact, you could give two pro sign makers the exact same design proof and end up with two different results, since every sign shop, printer, and artist has different capabilities. Likewise, you could order a sign that isn’t compatible with your existing installation hardware.

    By taking a few minutes to consult with a pro sign maker, you eliminate the guesswork, and sourcing all your signs from full-service shops like ours eliminates the risk of sign incompatibilities and inconsistencies.

  • Imperfect product picks—Bakersfield sign buyers are spoiled for choice, with access to a wide variety of sign types, each with their own unique options for materials, finishes, and lighting. But sometimes too much choice can be a bad thing, especially for beginners without adequate guidance. In some cases, it can lead to suboptimal product picks, leaving business owners stuck with signs that underperform or struggle to stand up to local weather conditions for their full service life. It can also lead to overpaying for materials or features that you won’t really use.

    By taking a few minutes out of your day to talk with a pro sign maker, you can get a free shortlist of recommendations based on your unique marketing needs, budget, and display conditions, so you’ll never have to worry about an imperfect pick.

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.
