Do I Need a Permit for my Custom Business Sign?

by Signarama on April 29, 2013

Custom business sign permits vary from town to town and city to city. There may even be different requirements for different areas within a town or city. Your best defense is a good offence, so know the rules prior to placing your sign.

Custom Business SignNobody wants to go against the planning department and erect a custom business sign without the right permissions, but it’s not always easy to learn the specific rules and regulations for each area. Fortunately, help is at hand. The employees at your local SIGNARAMA know all about the local rules and regulations for each individual town or city and can advise you:

  • Whether your customer business sign needs a permit.
  • If a permit is required they’ll tell you the type of permit you need.
  • They know all about the costs of these permits. It’s usually on a sliding scale, the bigger your custom business sign, the more you’ll have to pay for the permit.
  • They will also advise you on HOW to get the permit. At SIGNARAMA, they can help you every step of the way.

To put it in plain English — do not imagine that you’ll be able to erect a 200 square foot sign without permission and get away with it. Your custom business sign is designed to be noticed by customers, so if it’s doing a good job then chances are that it will also be noticed by the guys from the planning department. Let SIGNARAMA advise you about whether you need to seek a permit and help you to obtain any necessary permits before you start erecting your custom business sign. In fact, why not let SIGNARAMA handle the installation of your sign from start to finish. That way, you’ll know that everything is in order. They are the experts, after all.
