Development Phase

 
Consultation and Planning 
Signs perform in multiple capacities: They represent your company and also function in a practical manner by marking locations, directing traffic and communicating information. They should be well built and easy to maintain and service. 
We collaborate with our clients to make effective signage choices. Careful analysis is key to making sure designs are ideal for all applications. If your project is on a larger scale such as corporate identification or rebranding, or a whole-campus wayfinding system, planning becomes even more critical. 
Design
We can build from a fully-developed design or start with your ideas or logo and work toward the perfect look together. To help visualize the final product we provide graphic proofs for approval, showing exactly how signage will look after construction. We take overall budgetary allowances into account and provide up-front cost estimates.
Site Survey
Site surveys provide the information we need to produce optimal sign designs for each unique situation. Building and landscape details will influence construction design and installation methods, and traffic patterns and other environmental factors help us suggest ideal placement and orientation for signs. We examine all of the details to ensure signs are displayed in the best manner possible and secured safely in their location. 
Permit Acquisition 
Most new signs will require a permit, which can be a complex process.  We have extensive experience navigating municipal departments throughout the Northeast. We work with town officials to meet requirements and restrictions and obtain your permits and variances.  In the more technical cases, we have relationships with architectural and engineering companies to help ensure compliance to local zoning and building codes.  

 

 

Fabrication

 
Custom Manufacturing
Agnoli Sign's team of fabricators build signs to the design and specifications of each job in our Springfield, Massachusetts shop. Production involves multiple phases and requires attention and skill each step of the way. We use the highest quality materials to ensure our products are made to last. GE LEDs, Matthews paint system, and 3M vinyl are some of the brands we prefer.  Our facility features CNC routers, metal brakes, shears, channel letter bending machines, welders, wide format printers, vinyl plotters, and most importantly, our innovative and skilled manufacturers. 
Lead Time
Time from start to finish can vary tremendously depending on size, construction, permitting and many other factors.  This process can sometimes be slow, but each step is important to the end product. We remain in communication with clients throughout development.
Pricing
The custom nature of signage, with a nearly unlimited variety of sizes, materials and styles means that pricing is a very specific process and follows design.  We are happy to work within your budget and recommend options.
