Legal location of signs

The thumbnail version:

  • Sign locations are subject to local bylaws
  • Do you know your local bylaws?

The full version:

A recent article in Sign Media about Summerside, B.C. passing a bylaw to prohibit the placement of election signs in the downtown area is a reminder that there are bylaws governing sign placement in many jurisdictions.

This raises an interesting question . . .  Do you know your local bylaws as they apply to sign placement and are you able to advise customers accordingly? It of course assumes that your shop offers a decent level of customer service that goes beyond just churning out signs with no value added elements at all.

In a competitive market place where successful shops look for ways to differentiate themselves from the competition, advice on legal and effective sign placement would be a smart added-value element.
