Creating a logo is often the first step in producing signage. A well-designed logo will represent your brand and convey a message to your target audience. At Cincinnati Custom Signs, our expert designers with their expertise in graphic design, typography, color theory, and marketing, can help you create a unique, memorable logo that will set your business apart from the competition.
A site survey is a crucial step in producing signage as it helps determine the size, location, and type of signage that will be most effective for your business. A Cincinnati Custom Signs expert will visit the site to survey the location, available space, the possibility of any underground utilities, including any restrictions or regulations that may affect the installation of the sign.
Estimates and Permitting
Once the logo and site survey are completed, our trained experts will provide an estimate for the project’s cost, including design, production, and installation. The estimate includes the cost of materials, labor, and any additional expenses associated with the installation of the sign such as permitting. Before the sign can be installed, a permit must be obtained from the local government agency responsible for regulating signage. If necessary, CCS will assist with obtaining the required permits and permissions from local authorities.
Production of Signs
The production of the sign involves selecting the right materials and using various production methods. From design, cutting, printing, assembly and installation. Cincinnati Custom Signs ensures the production process meets the highest quality standards and that the sign is durable and long-lasting.
Installation is a crucial step in producing signage as it ensures that the sign is visible, functional, and safe. Our sign experts will use the appropriate tools, equipment, and techniques to install the sign correctly, this may involve mounting the sign onto a building, attaching it to a pole or post, or affixing it to the ground using stakes or anchors ensuring that it is securely mounted and visible from all angles.
After installation, Cincinnati Custom Signs will schedule a required final inspection mandated by the city to conduct an onsite audit to ensure the installation meets the states requirements.
They will ensure that the sign is functioning correctly and that it is visually appealing and effective in promoting your brand.
