Choosing a sign company can seem like an overwhelming choice. The fact is, there are a lot of us out there! It can be tempting to choose the closest company to your location, or look up a review or two, but there are many other things that are important to consider when you’re looking around for someone to handle your company’s name and manage your branding.

There are several things that a legitimate sign company must have: a contractor’s license, a certificate of insurance, and a workers’ comp. certificate. No technician should do ANY work without these things. At Abbott Image Solutions we take great care to ensure that all of these things are up-to-date and correct, and we don’t allow any of our trusted vendors to perform any work without first confirming that they have all of these items. If you plan on that sign company performing any kind of electrical work during installation that company should be UL listed.

When you grocery shop, the last thing you want to do is go to 3 different stores to get everything you need. No one has that kind of time these days! You prefer to get everything at one, convenient store, right? The concept with signage is the same. A lot can be involved in putting a sign up, (more on that in our future blogs,) and the best sign companies should be able to perform everything you need and take care of any obstacles that you may encounter. Here at AIS, our goal is to take care of your sign project from beginning to end so that you don’t have to. We want to help our clients avoid any potential headaches, and the best way to do that is to offer every service possible right here within one company. The sign company you choose should: handle design and estimating, have the ability to obtain any necessary engineer drawings or permits, handle all township, city, county, and state building and zoning codes, have working relationships with other vendors, (ie: electricians, out of state sign companies, etc.,) be able to remove, install, and perform service, as well as, coordinate scheduling with building owners, other involved clients, and general contractors.
