Signage Design.
How does it work?

Our proven signage
service process

A complete building signage design service starts with an initial idea and ends with a safe and timely installation that sends the right message. Here we outline our tried and tested eight-stage process for building signage design, from concept to installation. If you would like information about the process of vehicle wrapping or signage for your boat, get in touch with our friendly team.

The 8 Steps of the
Signage Design Process


Get in touch with the Vital Signs team

Great signs start with a consultation. In our first meeting, we’ll talk about things like your communication goals, branding considerations, design preferences and the intended location for your new signage. We’ll hash out all the crucial details.


We meet on site for a free measure

For building signage projects, we will come to you to measure the area. We’ll measure the length of the front of the building, the dimensions of the windows and doors, and whatever else we need to make your signage stand out as it should.


We discuss your requirements and take photos

We’ll take lots of photos of your building and ensure we understand your exact requirements. At this point, site health and safety requirements such as inductions, parking or special permits for the installation team are also confirmed.


Signage design mock-ups will be created for you to consider

We’ll then create a full colour visual of the design for you to review and check the layout, colours and materials for the signage. This is a crucial stage as it is your chance to make sure the design is exactly aligned to your brand and messaging.


Then we provide you with a competitive quote

We’ll make sure you are fully informed of the pricing of the project, ensuring everything suits your needs, your timelines and your budget. We will clearly explain the variables and options so you can accept the final quote with confidence.


Once approved, we’ll book it into the schedule

When you are happy with the design and cost, we’ll add your project to our schedule. It’s advisable to organise your building signage at an early stage of the process but if your timeline is tight, we’ll do our absolute best to make it happen.


Then it’s time for design and your approval

A PDF proof for client approval is always sent before the manufacturing process begins. If you let us know that you are happy with the look and feel of your new building signage, our signwriters will start creating it for you.


Next, we take care of manufacturing, delivery and installation

Vital Signs will manage the entire installation process with an experienced team that will ensure your signs are erected safely, securely and will stand the test of time. If you are interested in an ongoing maintenance service for your signage, let us know!
