How to buy a sign

Actually, the process is quite straight forward but there are a few steps to go through. It isn’t quite as simple as buying a packet of crisps but with our help buying a sign is simple.

Getting a price.

FD Signs will always give you a quotation rather an estimate, in other words the price will tell you will be the price you will pay! We will always quote a price that excludes vat but can obviously calculate that for you too.

To enable us to give you the best possible value for money here are the main things we will need to know.

  • Where will the sign be used? (i.e. inside or outside)

  • Which material shall we use to make your sign?

  • Is the sign temporary or permanent?

  • What is the size of sign that you need?

  • Can you fit your own sign, or would you like us to do it?

  • Which area are you in?

  • Will you be providing finished artwork for your sign, or would you like us to design it? We don’t charge for simple designs and logos)
