Bespoke signage plays an important part in your business’s brand identity and public face, so it’s essential to work with a sign design and installation provider that understands your needs and those of your customers and can provide the best possible solution to fit your timescale and budget. This article will outline some of the key questions to consider when choosing a signage provider for your next project, and why Image Technique Ltd are worth your consideration.
The first factor to consider when choosing a sign design and installation contractor is the supplier’s ability to provide the full design/assembly/installation/support package or just manufacturing services. Some signage companies specialise solely in design and manufacture, leaving you to source your installation contractors independently.
A full-service company will not only design and manufacture your signs, but also install and maintain them as well. Some providers offer you the flexibility of both options, which can work well for businesses that already have an in-house installation team or are working on a tight budget. A full-service provider can save you time and money by consolidating all services into one comprehensive package. Working with one company also ensures that a unified project management team has considered all aspects of your project.
Image Technique Ltd uses a consultative approach to meet our customer’s requirements to produce the best possible designs. This includes working with prototypes, technical drawings, and samples as appropriate to ensure you are completely satisfied with the results before beginning production or installation, so you get exactly what you want in terms of look, feel and function The customer-centric approach we use at Image Technique Ltd reduces your operational risk, minimises the chance of problems during installation, and guarantees maximum satisfaction for your custom signage projects.
A quality bespoke signage provider should be able to offer a choice of high quality and sustainably sourced materials for creating your signage, from aluminium to acrylic (or whatever else suits your project requirements) It's also important that they have sound tools and processes in place for manufacturing these signs to ensure the greatest accuracy and precision. Feel free to ask whether your sign design and installation company carries out all their processes in-house, or if some aspects are outsourced to third parties, and if so, to whom. Outsourcing may reduce your project costs but also reduces your direct control over delivery timescales and quality assurance.
Another key factor when choosing a bespoke signage provider is their assembly and installation service. At Image Technique Ltd, we offer complete on-site installation with our in-house team of highly trained health and safety and quality standards professionals. Assembly and installation expertise is especially essential when looking for a digital signage company, as the service should ensure that all digital and connectivity elements of the project are working correctly and integrate with your electrical infrastructure and IT systems.
Finally, check if the company offer ongoing maintenance services and repairs to keep your signage looking at its best throughout its lifespan. Most businesses offer a basic time-limited warranty, but this doesn’t usually include maintenance, cleaning, and servicing. A full-service business that offers ongoing technical support and after-sales care can deliver greater long-term value for money by lowering your total cost of ownership and helping you avoid many common maintenance problems.
By taking these factors into account when selecting your next signage provider, you can ensure that you achieve the best possible outcome for your project. To find out more about Image Technique or to request a quote, please click here.
