Electronic Sign Permits
Is a permit required for electronic signs?
Depending on where your business is located a permit may be required to erect a new electronic
sign or modify an existing one. We estimate that 90% of all businesses must obtain a permit to lawfully complete
the installation of a new electronic sign. iCatch Displays will handle this process for you.
In some cases a permit is not required. Most often when a permit is not required the business is located in a very
small rural community or outside the city limits.
Don't make the mistake of assuming that you do not need a permit to erect your electronic sign. Erecting an
electronic sign without a permit could result in unnecessary fines and penalties from both your local and state
The permit process varies from city to city and state to state. Some cities only require that you fill out a
single page form and pay a small permit fee ranging from $15 to $50. Some cities require full site plans of your
business location, stamped engineer drawings of the sign structure and fees upwards of $200. Some cities will
sign off on your permit immediately where others may have a 30-day review process.
Some cities have different requirements for indoor and outdoor
LED signs and for color and monochrome LED displays.
Some cities may initially deny your application but offer you the ability to obtain your permit through a variance
process. Regardless of the situation, iCatch Displays permit department has the necessary experience to quickly and
