What happens to old signage?
At SignAffects we are always looking out for our customers and our environment! Old signage can use excessive amounts of electricity and sometimes may present wiring issues that are not up to code. Replacing old signage may be a necessity rather than a choice! The sign pictured is heading to a much better place.... the scrap yard. Yes we recycle as much as possible!

Often times the permit process is a step that is not considered when new signage is desired, which can cause many issues - each jurisdiction has their own set of rules & codes for what they allow in their area. The overall size of the sign, colors, fonts, placement on the building (and more!) all play a role into whether the City or County will approve the signage. Thankfully, the permit experts at SignAffects are always ready to take care of the permitting process for our customers. This includes not only creating and filing the necessary paperwork, but keeping track of the permit's status and following up with the proper officials when necessary. It is not always an easy process, but in the State of Ohio, whomever is to install the signage is legally required to pull the permit, so we see it as a necessary step in doing things correctly from the beginning.

Shown here is a recent snippet on the process through the City of Columbus (Ohio) of all the steps development projects must pass through. Though not all of these steps are specific to signs, many of them are, and as the codes evolve and change, having someone on your side to know what hoops must be jumped through is an essential part of your signage getting done.

We are feeling bad for this family, but unfortunately this can happen all too easily when working with exterior electric signs and many end users don't appreciate or respect that. This is why we train our technicians to work with all types of signage, and have safety measures in place to avoid detrimental mistakes.

We recently installed one of our largest vinyl jobs to date - North Campus Gateway at OSU. Our whole team came together for this job: from permitting and design, to planning , equipment rental & install. We also worked hand-in-hand with the FastSigns Columbus team to help them accomplish the install! We are all very proud of this install!!

Did you know we can do very LARGE signs? Take at look at one of our most recent installs: a huge Sonic sign we installed in Marion, Ohio.

In case you're thinking your job is too big, we assure you, it's NOT!

Occasionally when ground signs and automobiles intersect we will see signs like this one. We do our best to get it removed and replaced as quickly as possible, knowing that this is definitely not good business! Keeping us in the loop and letting us know what needs done as soon as you can helps to keep the process running smoother and faster.

Feel free to call us as well if you see a sign - even if it's not yours - so that we can contact the owner and help them get it replaced. We love keeping our community looking great!
