For centuries, commercial sign companies have been aiding existing and new business owners, vehicle fleet managers, entrepreneurs, property managers, and architects with cabinet signs, pylon and pole signs, channel letters, construction signs, reception area signs, vehicle lettering, wall and window graphics, dimensional letters, post and panel signs, and more. With so many sign shops available, it can be hard choosing the best commercial sign company in Bend. To help you in your decision-making process, we have put together this guide.
Sign makers who are competing for your business should have the following characteristics:
A Great Attitude – A sign company should collaborate with you on your signage needs. You are unlikely to be satisfied with a shop that insists that they know better than you when it comes to what signs are best for your purposes.
A Strong Vision – Many clients do not show up with a sketch of what they have in mind. Why should they? They are not the graphic designers on this project. Instead, you can expect the sign maker you choose to have artists and technicians on hand who can listen to your descriptions to capture your vision.
Quality Service – You would probably fabricate and install your signs yourself if you had the knowledge, equipment, and time. But, you do not, and you expect the sign shop you hire to take care of these aspects. Yet, there are several sign companies, including most of the ones you find online, that do not include installation or even delivery.
Innovative Approach to Signage – Not all signs are created the same. When it comes to typefaces, color choices, letter placement, and sizes, there is a lot of leeway. Often times, your signage will reflect the expertise of the graphic designers employed by the sign maker. In addition, a sign company that has the latest technology and equipment will be able to help you stay ahead of the trends and get noticed.
Willingness to Do More – Does the sign shop work on your logo design, perform site surveys and analyses, help with all of your custom needs, and provide free consultations and estimates? All of these extras will improve your overall experience.
