Sign Codes & Regulations

"With ISA’s help we were able to convince both the city and the county that change was needed. We were able to show them that a strong sign code would actually advance their interests and improve the overall business and tourist climate."

If you need help getting a sign permitted, or navigating a local ordinance, or finding the latest licensing requirements, or figuring out what UL standards apply, or learning how to comply with the latest federal regulations, you’ve come to the right place! These are all services that we provide for free for ISA members.

We even have a "Help Desk" for ISA members at which you can get almost any difficult, random, unique question researched and answered by our team of experts.

But that's not all - if a community where you do business has an unreasonable sign code and you want us to try and open it up a bit, let us know and we'll do it – again, free of charge.

And if you have a particularly tough situation for which you need to obtain a variance for your customer, we can offer our expertise at a very competitive, discounted price for members.
