By Donna Carter


Fabricating or creating a signage is a fun way that can be done by people who love to do some works related to this. And thus, making them decide to have their business for this. Through this, they cannot just do what they love while improving their talent, but also, having an income through providing the clients with needed services. Businesses are common clients of this, mounting the signages outside the buildings.

Almost all people would hate having some paperworks during the processing. However, some signage businesses would involve some paperworks in the processes and these must be followed prior to starting the manufacturing of new signs. So here are the five common steps that most businesses do for sign fabrication Odessa TX.

Signature approval of the design drawings. Just like building some structures or making some other artworks, customizing or making the design is the first thing that needs to be done. Having the design or the layout first can make the following processes become easy. The client needs to approve the design first before starting the process.

Signature approval on signage quotes. These quotes include the costs for the project. The clients will need to have a full understanding and verification of total costs that are necessary for the project. The manufacturing of bigger projects often take 4 to 8 weeks, making the costs of items become much more expensive. To have the signed quotes is very important for all types of businesses before processing.

Clients will pay for down payment. About 50 percent of the whole price should be paid before the process. Mostly, the projects will not be started by the manufacturer if a down payment is not yet being paid. Customized designs are often done individually with hand fabrication. No return policies are being implemented by most manufacturers and this means that clients cannot be able to change the name or the logo in the midway process.

Sign permit application. The manufacturer is going to fill out this application and will submit this to the department for building and city planning. The manufacturer will hold the responsibility for the fabrication and will provide methods of attachment for signs. These are provided specifically to the detailed specifications of design drawings.

Signature of a landlord or a building owner. Similar to other businesses and houses, it would be important for landlords or building owners to affix their signatures to the application document which is being required by a city. The affixed signatures will serve as the verification that owners have understood and agreed to installing the new designs. And thus, having this process would be very important.

Approval from the city. Aside from the building owner, the city also need to approve the sign permit. The project cannot be started as well without this approval. In this process, the city provides a stamped set of drawing to a manufacturer having the signatures of staffplanning members from the planning and the building departments.

If the manufacturer gets back the stamped sets, a timeline is provided to a client for the manufacturing time. The fabrication time will depend upon the size and the scale of project. And thus, making the costs much more expensive. Therefore, clients should consider on proper planning to be able to make the costs worth it.
