Our Manufacturing Process

Get ready to embark on the manufacturing of a new, custom sign from Joslin and Son Signs, the only turn-key sign company in Nashville! We know this process can feel a little overwhelming, but as Bobby Joslin always says, “If you don’t know signs, know your sign man!”  We are here to help you every step of the way. Please take time to read through this guide on the manufacturing process. Remember, every sign we craft is customized to you; please allow 6-8 weeks for completion!

step one


When you approach us with your idea, we connect you with an experienced, knowledgeable Project Manager, who gathers all the necessary information to materialize your sign.

step two


Your idea can now be turned into a work of art by our talented Creative Design Team! This usually takes 2-3 business days.

Next, you and your Project Manager team up to approve or revise the Creative Team’s renderings of your new sign! Once you have approved a drawing that is perfect for you, we can begin the permitting process.

step three


A 50% down payment is required before we seek permits for your sign.

Our municipal liaison handles permit applications and gathers all approvals necessary to certify that your sign meets the legal requirements. This typically takes 7-10 business days, unless excess approval is required. Once we have your permit in-hand, your order is submitted to scheduling for production!

step four


Your sign is passed through the hands of over 10 skilled sign crafters who take pride in their work. Please allow 5-6 weeks for this process to complete.

step five


When your sign is complete, the installation department schedules the perfect time to install your new sign.

Now, it’s time to celebrate! Congratulations on your beautiful new sign, and thanks for partnering with Joslin and Son Signs to create your business’s first impression. This is just the beginning of a beautiful relationship!
