Brisbane Signs, Signage and Advertising Requirements

A sign is an important investment for your business and its presence can make a huge difference to your profitability.  Signs are such an important part of your business that you need to treat them with the same due diligence you would with any other part of your business.  We have previously covered designing a sign for your business in a previous blog.  The next logical step from this is to see what you can afford and then you need to investigate what the local council requirements for signage are.  As with many other areas in our lives, signs are not exempt from government rules and regulations.  It is important to abide by these, as you would hate your beautiful sign to be possessed by the council and pulled down or removed.

Signage Queensland are experts in Brisbane Signs and Brisbane Signage, and are therefore an ideal resource for discussing your signage needs in Brisbane and the associated local government guidelines.  Most Brisbane sign companies should also be aware of this and be able to provide you information on this.  It is important to note that there are costs involved in sign applications and approvals, and that these prices will have to be added on to the total cost of your sign – ensure that you budget for this, as cutting corners could cost you lots more in lost business in the end.
