Check out ex­am­ples of a sign­writer’s work be­fore hir­ing them for the job.

Dis­cuss any ideas or colour pref­er­ences with the sign­writer be­fore you give the nod for work to start. It’s im­por­tant that you have a shared vi­sion for the way you ex­pect the sign to look.

Show the sign­writer any mock-ups or de­signs you have cre­ated.

Plan ahead. Signs can take a while to cre­ate, es­pe­cially tra­di­tional signs. It is best to con­tact a sign­craft com­pany many weeks be­fore you ex­pect work to be com­pleted.

Ask the sign­writer to mock up a few dif­fer­ent ex­am­ples of a sign so you can choose from a va­ri­ety of op­tions.

Be pre­pared for plans to change. If the weather is bad, an out­side pro­ject may have to put on hold un­til the sun comes out.
