New Year New Sign Regulations! Is your Business Covered?

The year is quickly coming to an end, is your business ready for the New Year? Holiday plans are made, guest lists are checked, doors gearing up to be locked, and it’s time to start looking forward to 2015. You may be ready but is your business?

While so many see the New Year as a time for new beginnings and starting over, they aren’t the only ones. All throughout the year, various committees have come together across the country to work out a series of new and important business sign regulations over a variety of sign types, and formats. Many of these new sign regulations and laws will be taking effect throughout the beginning days and weeks of the year. Are your company’s business signs up to snuff?

Just last month in Gilroy, California the Gilroy Chamber of Commerce got together to discuss the business sign regulations already put in place. Among the issues discussed, was the topic of how long a business is permitted to display a banner and how much of a business’s windows could be covered with signs whether they are vinyl or otherwise.

On the other side of the country in Stockbridge, Massachusetts a recently formed sign committee again took aim at the use of banners as well as neon signs and signs that aren’t even on the specific business’s premises. As a result, Stockbridge’s business owners are fighting back in their attempt to get noticed and therefore attract customers and profits.
