5 Step Process

Sign Consultation

Step 1: Consultation

If you’re looking for sign services but don’t know where to start, we can help. We understand that there are many options when designing, repairing, maintaining, or even removing signs and lighting, and that it can be a stressful and expensive process. Our team is dedicated to listening to your goals and needs and providing help to get there.

There’s nothing to be ashamed of if you’re looking for a new sign but have no design ideas or aren’t sure what type of sign would work best for your business. Our team has over 38 years working on the design, manufacturing, and installation of all types of signs.

Other than strategy and brainstorming, we also survey your site to help make more educated suggestions. By doing so, we can analyze a precise location, access, best orientation, and become aware of any obstacles. You wouldn’t want to pick the perfect spot to find out a tree is growing right in front! Portland Sign Co. assures that we will gather all the information with consistency and accuracy. An accurate analysis of the site and building conditions will eliminate any possibilities of errors. Some of our Services include:

  • Site Plan with Measurements
  • Interior Surveys
  • Night Surveys
Sign Design and Engineering

Step 2: Design & Engineering

At Portland Sign Co., our expert in-house designers understand the unique purpose behind every sign. From bright, attention-grabbing displays to non-electric directional signs and decorative elements, our team will work with you to create the perfect product for your business, event, or vehicle.

The design process with us is tailored to your specific needs. For corporate chains and businesses, we are familiar with brand requirements and specifications. For local businesses, we value tradition while also recognizing the importance of updating or rebranding designs when necessary. Whether starting from scratch or simply manufacturing a corporate design, our team has the skills to help you with all aspects of sign design.

Investing in a sign is a long-term investment and we want you to be confident in your choice. Whether using an existing logo or creating a new one, our team has the expertise to guide you through the design process, from sending proofs to ensuring final approval of your design.

Let Portland Sign Co. help you create a sign that stands out, lasts, and reflects the unique character of your business.

Sign Permits

Step 3: Permits

The cities of Portland, Salem, and the surrounding communities require permits for many types of electricbanner, A-frame and digital signs. We are familiar with these regulations and ordinances and will handle any permits needed for your sign. We know that paperwork can seem daunting and many companies will want you to take care of that yourself. We partner with you to help the process be as quick and easy as possible.

We make it our business to know the ins and outs of the local codes and regulations, so you don’t have to. Because our team has more than 38 years of combined experience, we know what it takes to get the necessary permits for your company’s sign.

We’ll make sure the correct paperwork is submitted and our communication is efficient with whomever we need to work with so that the sign designs are quickly approved.

Should there be any issues with your desired product, Portland Sign Co. can help get special allowances for the local codes or ordinances so we can proceed with the manufacturing and installation of your thoughtfully designed sign.
