Like many of us, the first port of call when it comes to finding the best signage company in your area is to google ‘best signage company near me’. A few ads will appear in google search then a list of companies whose names you may or may never head of, so where to from here?
It’s important to know what you are looking for when it comes to signage as this will filter out many companies that may not cater to your needs. In this article, we will highlight some of the most common things to think about when you are looking for a sign company near you.
Do your research
While cost is an important factor for many businesses, it’s also important to consider their capabilities and background. Look for examples of work on their website or Facebook page and take some time to see the type of work they have done for past clients. The best signage companies in the business will have a page of recent projects and several images of signage work they have completed.
Look at the brands they have worked with. Not only will this give you a good idea of what they are capable of but also gives you an indication they are a reputable company if they have worked with recognisable brands.
Find out how many years they have been in the industry and how qualified they are. You can learn more about the company on their ‘About Us’ page on their website. If you are looking for someone to partner with on an ongoing basis then the company values and understanding what support they offer will be essential to your decision making.
Make sure they can do the job you require
One of the first things to think about when searching for a signage company near you is whether the company deals with the type of signage requirement you need. If it’s digital signage solutions you are after, then make sure you are looking for someone who has experience in this space.
If it’s a national brand rollout your business requires then you need to make you engage a signage company that has delivered on previous campaigns and can manage the project. You want to know that they use quality products, can support fulfilment, and provide support and maintenance.
While your signage might be small in scale, working with a local signage company in your area might be the right option for what you need. However, many signage companies can easily create, manufacturer, and deliver your signage needs purely through online communication and via the phone, without needing to leave your workspace.
Does the business tailor-make signage
Whether it’s large format digital printing, 3D lettering, illuminated signs, pylons, directional signage, window films, vehicle, or reception/retail signage, you want to know that the company can custom make to your needs. Don’t be afraid to ask as many questions as you need when you first enquire about your signage requirements.
You want a signage company that will listen and works with you to custom-make signage according to the needs of your business, office, retail space, or workplace. Most importantly you want the signage specialist you deal with to be accommodating, explain options to you, and all with a friendly smile!
