Budgeting and Sign Permit Costs
The cost of custom dimensional signage can vary greatly based on numerous factors such as sign type, size, quantity of letters, colors, illumination, etc.
A typical internally illuminated storefront channel letter sign can cost anywhere from $ 2,000.00 to $10,000.00 installed depending on the factors listed above.
Sign permit costs also need to be considered when purchasing an exterior sign of any kind. Baltimore area governments have restrictions regarding signage in their zoning ordinance and require permits for signs.
Permits costs, application requirements and time it takes for them to be issued vary greatly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Some jurisdictions are simple and issue sign permits on the spot and have low permit fees.
On the low end permits can cost less than $ 200.00 to over $ 2,000.00 on the higher end. If a sign is not allowed per code and a variance is pursued, the costs could be higher still especially if a Land Use Attorney’s involvement is required.
