Our Process

The way we get it done

Hi Signs | THE FATH GROUP offers the convenience of a 'ONE STOP' manufacturing facility for all your signage needs.

Consultation

The initial conversation with your sales representative is the first contact that you will have with us. This is where we’re able to gather information on what you are looking for in a new sign. We discuss your intended audience, budget, timeline & type of sign that you are looking for. The sales person will do a brief survey of the area to inspect potential issues, hazards or accessibility limitations.

Stage 1

Stage 2

Concept design

Our creative team will take all of the information gathered and create a concept rendering for your review. Details on fabrication & final colors may remain to be determined at this stage. Your sales person will provide our concept art along with the estimated cost to produce & install the proposed signage for your review.

Approval

Once you are ready to move forward with the proposed signage, we will update the art proofs to shop drawings with complete details & specs. We will not move forward with production until proofs are signed, dated and returned to us. Billing information is to be discussed and confirmed with your sales representative once agreed upon. 

Stage 3

Stage 4

Site survey & Permit acquisition

A detailed survey of the area is done to ensure that the proposed signage will be appropriate in the existing environment. A site plan / curb to property map will be required to apply for the permit (depending on the location, this may be obtained from the City of Edmonton). We can prepare the permit art and submit to the city for final approval on your behalf for a nominal fee. A landlord permission letter may be required prior to manufacture & install. An Alberta first call may also be required if there is a new base required for your sign.

Fabrication

Once the artwork, payment & permits are approved, production art and detailed drawings will be released to production and added to our timeline and schedule. The production manager will review & distribute to each department accordingly. Quality control checks are met once the sign is ready to move onto the next stage.
