Beginner's Guide To Hanging Signs

Fresh off rewarding hanging sign projects for Northern Virginia brands Delta and Remix Market, our team is brimming with first-time sign buyer knowledge. Read on for answers to top beginner questions.

Do I Need A Permit For Hanging Signs In Northern Virginia?

Ordinances vary depending on your local laws, but most hanging signs will need a permit in Northern Virginia. For example, Article 12 of the Fairfax County Zoning Ordinances states that the commercial sign laws therein “apply to all signs located in Fairfax county,” with the exception of flags, some vehicle signs, temporary/seasonal decorations, and the changing of sign board copy. Clearly, hanging signs count.

While Fairfax County does not typically regulate or restrict hanging signs by content, they do mandate certain installation standards. Failing to abide by these standards can result in legal liabilities and fines.

Don’t worry–the Legendary Custom Signs team has expert knowledge of local sign laws and ordinances. We can assist you in acquiring the necessary permits and ensure your project is 100% compliant with local laws.

Why Choose Hanging Signs To Advertise Your Business In Northern Virginia?

Hanging signs have been a popular choice for business owners in Northern Virginia for centuries–literally! This sign style has a rich history and enduring demand for good reason. These are just a few of the benefits of hanging signs:

  • Hanging signs are one of the most effective forms of outdoor signs. They generate thousands of impressions everyday and never get obstructed by ground-level obstacles, foot traffic, or cars.
  • Hanging signs are durableenough to withstand the worst of Northern Virginia weather and the strongest winds without falling off and creating legal liabilities. Moreover, they’re tough to reach, which keeps them safe from knocks and everyday wear-and-tear.
  • Hanging signs are 100% customizable. Choose any size, shape, color, or style, and then add the final touches with one of our specialty finishes. We also provide complete design support, so you can bring any vision to life with legendary results!
