If you own or manage a business in Bakersfield or nearby in Kern County, California, you’re going to need signs. Does it matter where you get those signs? Is this one of those times where it’s good to shop local and, if so, why?
Every city, town, and community has its own vibe. We all know the West Coast has a different energy than the East Coast, but differences work on even smaller scales. You probably could hire a sign company in Los Angeles to make a POP sign for your Arvin store or a blade sign for your Delano café. And while they might be great at design, are they doing to know more about what works in the Bakersfield–Delano area than a sign shop in Bakersfield? No.
Designers at a Bakersfield sign shop will have a better feel for what designs work. Furthermore, they know the sign landscape. They’ll be able to point out if your Delano blade sign is too similar to the logo of a restaurant in Bakersfield. And there are more practical advantages to designing a sign with somebody who is local. Design is a back-and-forth process; you really want to be able to go over certain designs in person.
Getting a sign made in a different country or state means that you’ll have to wait for it to get shipped to you. That’s not a luxury you’ll always be able to afford; sometimes your signage needs will sneak up on you and you find yourself in need of a custom-made sign fast. Furthermore, if you get your sign made in a sign shop in Bakersfield, you won’t have to pay for it to be shipped to you.
Let’s say you’ve commissioned a pole sign for your Arvin business. Are you going to install it all by yourself? Not likely. Large and electronic signs require professional sign installation and only a sign shop in Bakersfield can offer sign installations in Kern County. The same is true for sign repair; a sign shop is not going to drive for hours to repair a sign of yours in Bakersfield.

Thank you so much TM Signs and Graphics. You made replacing and updating our window graphics and office pylon so simple. So affordable and professional at every step.Keisha Tingey
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.Brandon McCullough

Bakersfield Signs & Graphics did an amazing job on Updating our Business Sign. Trinh was incredibly professional and thorough from the first step to the finished product. I would like to say Thank You to Trinh and the team for making this project very simple while using the best materials around. We will definitely be in touch for Future Projects! Thank you!Adam Rendon
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.North Bakersfield Toyota
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.Nicole Freeman
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.Dominique
