Come and visit. Not something you often hear from a sign shop. We think it’s a good idea because how a business is run can say a lot about it. For instance I wear work boots, jeans and sweatshirts to work every day. As much as I would love to be feminine in silk blouses, pretty skirts and high heels no one would take me seriously as a sign maker if I did.
The same can be said about a sign shop. Is the shop clean and orderly or is it messy and hazardous? Is there a place to sit if you need to wait? Are refreshments available? Are the staff impatient with you or are they willing to educate you? These things matter. If an employer is letting an employee work with power tools with frayed cords then he doesn’t think much of his employees…..the backbone of his business. Can he be expected to go out of his way for you?
So visit the sign shop you intend to use. A tour is very educational for a business owner looking to buy a sign. You can learn about materials, installation methods and you may see something that will give you more ideas about your own sign. Ask questions, ask to see product. Sometimes we can order a sample of a particular product you want to know more about.
