“How Much Does A Sign Cost?”
If you are looking to build on a budget, “It depends” doesn’t really help.
Since we make custom fabricated signs, each project does vary in price. That doesn’t mean we can’t provide some ballpark figures for you to start planning around. Below are a few examples for base pricing and some of the design elements that can increase or lower the price.
Of course, to get a free estimate on your project please, contact our sales department and one of our experienced team members will assist you in designing and pricing your signage according to your objectives and budget.
First, Size Matters.
The size of your sign will most likely be determined by the requirements in your building lease and municipality code. We can do the research for you on the code.
Design to Your Budget
Just like a new car, the options you choose can greatly affect the pricing. If you let us know what level of detail is required to reflect your brand, we will design as much of that detail as possible according to your budget.
An interior sign in an architect’s office, installed at eye level, will require more time to ensure every detail is finely polished. On the other hand, a large pole sign along a freeway has different requirements and may take less time to build.
Installation and Permitting Costs
The pricing below does not include the pricing for non-fabrication costs. Permitting costs are determined by your local municipality. If street closures are required to install your signage, this can add several hundred, to several thousand dollars. We work to minimize these costs and our team can give you an estimate on whether these costs may apply to your project. Installation for most projects, that include one or two signs, can be done by one of our licensed crews in a day. The day rate for installation is about $2,500.00.
