While ISA’s questions can help you trim your shortlist of commercial sign companies, the final decision should be based on real-world sign results. Accordingly, we’ve prepared a few tips to help you evaluate the real-world sign design, manufacturing, and installation capabilities of Southfield sign businesses, all of which can be done totally “contactless,” and mostly from the comfort of your own home.
Southfield Sign Showcase: 3 Ways To Evaluate Commercial Sign Company Products
Visit commercial sign company galleries. Most reputable commercial sign companies will have online galleries on their website. If the company in question does not, consider this a red flag, since online sign showcases are now standard practice in the sign industry, particularly during COVID-19. While most companies will put their best foot forward, showcasing only their best signage from the most flattering angles, online galleries still serve as a useful starting point for your results-oriented evaluation.
Visit commercial sign company social media pages. With its emphasis on visual media, Instagram is a great place to start, but Facebook is also a good option because you can see unfiltered comments from real customers. Here again, you’ll need to be aware that businesses will only post their best work, but it’s still a useful resource for remote research.
Visit commercial sign companies’ finished products in person. The best way to let the results speak for themselves is to visit the company’s finished signage in person. It’s often possible to determine where the signs are located on your own while browsing online galleries, but it’s more time-efficient to call the company directly and ask for a list of local sites to see.
