Choose the Right Sign-Making Company for Your Business
Whether you’ve just moved your business into new premises or are in the process of refurbishing an existing property, one aspect you mustn’t overlook is the signage outside and within the property. Whether you have a unit on an industrial estate, a retail outlet in a busy shopping centre or a warehouse out of town, you want both existing customers and passing trade to notice you and know where you’re located if they’re trying to find you. If you’re in the West Sussex area, then expert sign makers in Burgess Hill, Phoenix Signs, can help.
But what should you be looking for in a company that promises sign making services? Here are our top tips, and how and why we measure up as a firm that’s worth trusting your business with.
Make Sure They’re Reputable, Established and Experienced
No business has money to throw away, so you want to make certain the firm you’re thinking of working with can be trusted to get it right first time. Reputation is everything, so before you commission the firm, ask to see a portfolio of their previous work and evidence of clients they’ve worked with. Check signs and graphics services they’ve provided for other companies, like shop fascias, window graphics, hoarding graphics and so on are clear, precise and of the quality you want for your own business.
Next, check for any available information about the quality of their customer service. You can also often find independent reviews on social media platforms like Facebook and business directories like Google My Business to establish whether the firm was reliable, helpful and responsive when working with other companies on previous commissions. Did they deliver on time and within budget? Then, speak to the signage company and gauge how interested they seem in working with your business – do they take the time to get to know what your business does and offer helpful suggestions on your requirements?
Allied to this, you want to know that the company has the capabilities to deal with your needs now – and for preference in the future too, as your business grows. Can they handle all your current and likely future requirements? At this stage, you might only want an exterior sign, but can they also deliver on projects like vehicle graphics or wrapping, A-boards and builder’s boards, banners and pop-up stands for trade fairs and exhibitions, for instance?
It’s well worth asking if they also incorporate logos and brand design services as part of their remit. Not only is this useful if you would like your logo updating in future, it will also mean they’ll be able to edit your existing logo file to ensure high-quality reproduction on any material they produce for you, like posters, exhibition signs and point of sale signage, for instance. Finding a one-stop shop which takes care of all your branding and marketing needs will save time and money in future.
