Sign Permit Application Services & Sign Regulations in NJ

Signage Permits NJ

Signs are a critical tool for any business. But like most aspects of running a business, there are rules to how and where you can put up signs, especially if they are on the exterior of your property.

Many signs require the correct permit, in order to display them in a way that isn’t distracting, dangerous, or against New Jersey state regulations. Navigating this can be a challenge. That is why Blue Dot Signs offers sign permit consulting. For those looking for a sign permit in New Jersey, Blue Dot Signs can help you obtain it, as well as ensure that your sign is designed in such a way that meets the sign permit requirements.

What Rules Are There About NJ Sign Permits?

NJ state law, as well as various individual city laws, require that many forms of outdoor advertising receive a permit before they are to be placed in a visible space. Companies looking to advertise outdoors much fill out a sign permit application and have it approved on May 15th of every year, and must meet all of the requirements set out by local law.

Examples of these requirements include:

  • Located in a commercial or industrial zoned area.
  • Away from the road, based on the city’s requirements.
  • Measured illumination (how much light the sign emits) and more.

Navigating the code can be extremely complicated, as NJ doesn’t have a single location that gives clear, layman guidance that anyone without sign experience can understand.

The fines for posting a sign that does not have the required permits may also be substantial, which is why it is so important to make sure that you have someone that understands the business sign permit requirements before you order and place your sign.
