How to Handle Sign Installation

When considering your sign purchase, one of the more critical factors to consider is installation. Where will you put it? Are the permits in place? Do you have the right electrical capacity for the sign? If you chose an LED message center, are there special considerations for installing it? Will you or will Akers Signs install it?

Self Installation

You will receive a plan for installing your sign weeks before completion. Installing your sign is not difficult for people with a construction or an electrical background. Please keep in mind that a sign can weigh up to a thousand pounds or more-and depending on size may require a small crane or forklift to take from the delivery truck and erect. We will provide a diagram showing the needed foundation, and the posts or threaded rods that need to be set for your sign to be safely and correctly installed.

Finishing Installation With Electric Signs

For other electric signs, most areas require a certified electrician to perform your final hook up. This is something you can coordinate with a local electrician or the installation contractor.

*I’ve owned a small business for 20 years & always had minimal signage. This past year we relocated & I felt it was time to look into better signage so I contacted Akers Signs. I worked with Rick Akers & Michelle Miller for both indoor & outdoor signage & I would not hesitate to recommend Akers Signs to anyone. They were always there to give me ideas on what they thought would work best, they took care of all permits & they stayed within my budget. When we originally contacted them their production time wouldn’t have given us our signs in time for our Grand Opening, but they went out of their way to get our signs up & looking fantastic the day of our Grand Opening. Our sign has been one of our best investments & marketing tools & has brought us additional clients strictly because they have seen our sign.* - Danielle Wirick, MS, CSCS, FMSC
