When is the last time you thought about the importance of your retail signage?
Creative, effective, high impact signage is critically important to the success of your retail business. Signs that are clearly visible to people passing your location, such as from sidewalks for pedestrian traffic, or highways for vehicular traffic, can make a huge difference in your success and your bottom line.
Whether you are a business with a strong existing brand, or a new business, the experts at Starfish Signs can help you maximize your signage potential. Our experienced sign designers consider all aspects of the signage, including sizing, positioning, type of construction, and method of installation. When developing signage solutions, we also carefully consider all aspects of your location, and work with you to achieve the desired impact.
Business with Established Brand
For businesses with an already established brand, including franchises with detailed brand guidelines, we will create a sign that faithfully and precisely represents your brand, including colors, fonts, symbols, and other considerations.
For new businesses, we can work with you or your marketing team, to develop a sign (and a logo, if needed) that represents your business in the manner that you want.
Shopping Center Requirements
If you are located in a retail center or shopping mall, there will be an additional layer of requirements from the center owner, operator or property manager. These requirements usually specify the maximum size and area of your sign, and there may be additional specifications related to methods of construction and installation, and the hours of illumination. Our team will work with you and your landlord, to ensure that your signs will be fully compliant with all center requirements.
Shopping centers also often have stringent requirements related to the hours when installations are allowed, the types of equipment that may be used, advance notification requirements, and levels of licensing, insurance and bonding that are needed. You can be sure that any installations that we do will be in full compliance with all center requirements, and that there will be no delays by us in getting the necessary permissions to install your signs to your schedule.
Don’t Forget about Building Permits
Even after satisfying your requirements, the Franchisor’s requirements (if applicable), and the Center’s requirements, retail signs also require city permits – usually involving Planning Department approval, and building permits. We simplify your life by taking responsibility for submitting permit applications, pulling permits, and coordinating final inspections. Our team has many years of experience, and we have pulled all types of permits in most cities in Southern California. When you work with our team, you have the highest likelihood of success of securing permits in a timely fashion, and you don’t have to worry about the details of the process.
