THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO STARTING AND OPERATING A SUCCESSFUL SIGN SHOP
(Written by Steven Cole, BA, MBA - owner of "Cole Signs & Graphics")

A Vinyl Graphics Sign Business is one of the most profitable small businesses in the country. The investment is low and the profits are very high. Depending upon how efficient you are, it is not unusual to earn $50 - $100 per hour. Once you have your shop and equipment, materials make up about 15 - 20% of each job. THE REST IS YOUR PROFIT! Most shops earn thousands per month.


Here is an example of a sign shop's profitability. A 4' x 8' coreplast sign retails for between $175 and $225 depending upon the complexity of the design. The materials for the sign run approximately $12 leaving a gross profit of between $163 and $213. An average 4' x 8' sign takes no longer than 2 hours to design and make. This creates a per hour profit of about $80 - $105 per hour.

All of the equipment necessary to start a shop can be purchased for less than $5,000. A location can be leased for as little as $200 per month. Also, learning to make signs is very easy and simply takes a little practice. In a week you can be making your first sign. Best of all, making signs and working with customers is fun !

All of these facts make the sign business a fantastic opportunity for anyone willing to invest a little time and capital into their future.

This guide will provide you with virtually everything you need to know to start and operate a Sign Shop. It covers choosing a name, getting your business license, taxes, bookkeeping, financing your equipment, choosing your equipment, marketing, bidding and pricing jobs, designing and making signs and much, much more.
