All municipalities have unique sign ordinances that need to be followed in order to obtaining a sign permit except for real estate signs, political signs and garage sale signs. Typical signage such as channel letters, monument signs, window lettering and even banners require a permit in most areas.
Most municipalities require an approval from either the building owner or property manager. A signed drawing of the proposed sign to be installed would need to be submitted along with the sign permit paperwork. It is also important to know if the building owner or property management has its own guidelines of signage requirements for the building.
Once the artwork is finalized by the customer and building owner the drawings can be submitted to the city, town or village. Our design staff makes sure the proposed sign follows the sign ordinances. Included in the permit package can be several types of spec drawings, aerial views, technical drawings and even UL listing information.
Sign contractors are required to be licensed, bonded and insured in each city the work is being preformed.
