Creating a sign is an exciting, but sometimes complex, process. Bringing your idea to life and fabricating a sign requires planning and organizing, but for exterior signage, the process often begins before that, with determining what type of signage is allowable. Depending on the location and size of your display, it is highly possible that you’ll need a permit before installing exterior signage. All-Right Sign is highly experienced in the Chicago sign permitting process and we can assist you with all the necessary arrangements. Through our in-house permitting services, we correspond with city planners to get the approvals required, making sign installation hassle-free.
The Terms and Conditions of Sign Installation
How and where signage may be installed is controlled by local units of government, and so rules and regulations can vary widely from one suburb to the next. There may also be filing deadlines related to obtaining permits and failing to meet these can delay the installation by weeks. So let us handle this process for you.
The team at All-Right Sign works closely with city officials to ensure that your sign meets every guideline. Our company is licensed and bonded, and we’ve installed all types of signage in various locations in downtown Chicago, Northwest Indiana and the surrounding municipalities. We’re familiar with the process and are comfortable managing approvals for our clients.
Within Chicago city limits, business identification signs are generally categorized as on-premises and there are specific requirements to obtain on-premise sign approval All-Right Sign is highly familiar with the Chicago permit process and with our knowledgeable team on your side, your sign project will be designed to gain approval.
Our In-House Permit Process
As a leader in sign creation and installation, we’re highly experienced in managing large projects and obtaining signage permits. We can assist you with permitting in various ways, including:
- Design Guidelines. First, your sign must be designed with the various city requirements in mind. Failing to account for these in the early stages of a project can lead to costly alterations or worse, a denied permit.
- Special Conditions. Signs that meet certain conditions, like those hanging over public walkways, signs that are particularly large, or ones that will be placed more than 24 feet above the ground, may require additional approvals. Our experts are well-versed in this aspect of the approval process and will guide you through all necessary steps for your specific sign.
- Final Application. After applicable reviews have been completed, such as a zoning board, electrical and building department reviews, we’ll work with the customer to finalize the necessary applications, ensure the permit is received, and install the approved signage.
There are many different factors impacting the permit timeline, so the process looks different depending on the city or suburb of your choice. We encourage you to reach out to our staff for more specific details on what you can expect.
