Prices do vary depending on the complexity of the sign.
Every sign manufacturer will follow a few rules when giving quotes and it is important to remember these when obtaining quotes and looking at the different prices you may be quoted.
- Signs will be less expensive the less complex they are because of the labor costs involved and the longevity, relating to the quality of the materials used
- The square foot cost increases as the complexity of the sign increases
- The cost of the sign will be dependent on the size of the sign as well as its complexity
To define complexity a good example would be when you changed from a simple sign that is fixed to one with letters displayed via an electronic system where the words can be changed. Another example would be when the flat-faced letters are changed to give a 3D style appearance. Although complexity means more expense, it can make your sign stand out in an impressive manner and improve the appearance of your brand. Let’s look at signs in different price ranges to learn more.
