As a business owner, you know that one of the keys to the most basic advertising is having great custom outdoor signs. It let’s people know who you are, where you’re located and what you’re (presumably) about.
BUT! Cities have ordinances regarding what you can put up and display. They can be strict about size and placement and the fees can add up if you don’t know where to begin or how to navigate the system. That’s where Vital Signs USA comes in.
We’re going to use Chicago for this example.
What permits do I need?
Well that depends. The city issues two types: on-site and off-site.
The type of sign and how many there are affect what permits you need. If you’re using a billboard, that will need an off-site permit.
Are you putting a sign on the sidewalk in front of your business or a decorative one in the window? You’ll need an on-site permit for that.
Are they expensive?
Good custom outdoor signs will make you stand out against the competition and give your business a unique persona. It’s not that expensive when you consider what the investment is.
What can add up though is the costs of having to pay the review fees and then having to determine what type of sign and how big it is. If you’re not sure where your sign fits in the guidelines, it can become costly and time consuming.
