Budgeting for Signage

Better Budgeting for Better Results

Signs serve us in so many ways. They inform, instruct, guide, and remind us. They communicate critical information and sometimes even save lives.

With so much to gain from signage, it’s important to take the time to carefully plan a strong program, and the first step should be setting an appropriate budget.

However, determining an appropriate budget for signage doesn’t happen overnight. It requires careful planning and industry-specific knowledge. That’s why it’s crucial to understand the factors that influence price to ensure you stay on target.

How Many Pieces of Signage Do You Need?

An excellent place to start is to estimate how many signs your facility will need. Three main areas to consider when determining the number of signs are the size and type of facility; the number of doors, hallways, and stairwells; and whether your project is a new build or a renovation.

How Will Design Choices and Materials Drive the Price?

More elaborate and intricate designs get attention, but factors improving design aesthetics also drive up costs. It is also true that you could save money by choosing less expensive materials, but a product that is not as durable may need to be replaced sooner.
