Signage that sells your business starts with an idea. So how do you put your ideas into practice? By working with a professional sign installation company, you’ll be guided through the 5 critical steps that make the difference between signs that fail and sign installations that create the wow factor for your business.

1. Concept creation

You may have a great design concept, but unless your sign is executed using the right materials and technology, it’s unlikely to engage your target audience.

A good sign installer will be able to suggest a range of cost-effective materials that maximise your budget, or they may suggest innovative materials that deliver durability and integrity superior to the recommended materials.

2. Site survey

A full survey of the installation site allows the installer to get to grips with any potential issues that may impact on the manufacture of the sign. For example, sign installations on a slope will affect the fundamental design of the signage, whilst installations at height require an additional technical survey.

Accessibility, access, structural integrity and health & safety will all be considered during the site survey.

3. Manufacture

Your signage should always be manufactured from materials that suit the installation site and will maximise your return on investment. Aluminium, plastic, Dibond and timber must all be handled in specific ways and can be finished to provide a combination of good looks, longevity and flexibility.

Choose a sign installation company that can shape and cut your chosen materials to create a range of effects, including channel letters and 3D illuminated signs. Exterior signs should be weatherproofed and protected against graffiti to maximise their lifespan.

4. Sign installations

Safety, security and the correct materials are paramount for a first rate installation. Your sign will be installed in the correct location, using the right equipment and fixings for the job for permanence and security.

Any installation should always be carried out in a way that respects the safety of the installer and any employees on the premises. By using the optimum fixing method for your sign, the job will be neat and precise and your sign won’t be damaged by weather, rust or poor installation.

5. Maintenance

Maintenance is just as important as every other step in the procedure, and will ensure that your sign keeps delivering its message until you decide to rebrand.

Unfortunately, even the best quality materials can become damaged in extreme weather conditions. Contact details may need to be updated or you may even decide you want to start from scratch, in which case your installer should remove the old signage and dispose of it responsibly.
