Can I produce my own sign and have your company install it?

Yes, you can create your design; however, it almost always costs a client more to arrange their own design and printing. BCbillboards.ca is able to obtain lower prices than the general public from our wholesale suppliers and printers. If you do wish to create your own sign we will work with you and provide size requirements, printing specs etc.

What will it cost me to produce?

Production costs range from $1500 to $2500 depending on the size of the sign that you are renting. Production includes graphic design, layout printing and installation. These costs are offset somewhat by having print ready artwork or using your own design team to produce.

Paper and paint still exist for billboard production, but they are becoming rare as people increasingly turn to full print flexface vinyl. It lasts longer and can be re-used. Once your message is created on a computer, it is transferred to a large sheet of vinyl that's placed over the sign face like a tablecloth and then wrapped and secured around the back.

It will probably cost you more if you go through your outdoor company for vinyl production than if you purchase the ad directly through a billboard production company like BCbillboards.ca. You will need to provide the production company with your own design, but if you have someone in your employ who can do that, you can save some money. Regular installation fees will apply.

What can I put on my billboard?

Any graphic whatsoever may be used as long as it not offensive.

In the past, billboards were hand-painted or had a combination of paint, vinyl decals and lettering – a time-consuming and costly venture. Today’s billboards are designed on a computer screen and printed on one sheet of flexible material. This process allows the client to include large format photos or any graphic that can be generated electronically.

Once printed, the flexible sign material is most commonly stretched over the front of the sign. The result is a less expensive and higher quality product.

The client will assume liability for display content including copy, representation and illustration, and assume responsibility for any and all claims arising therefrom. All content and copy must be approved in advance by BCbillboards.ca. We reserve the right to remove any offensive advertising at our sole discretion.

What if I want to change my sign part way through the year?

Your sign may be changed at any time with the exception of very cold periods of winter. Normal production and installation prices will apply.

How long is the billboard rental term?

One year or you can fix a rate for multiple years and avoid industry rate increases. As has happened in the past, Billboard rates have increased steadily. Markets also grow to a size where national advertisers want to have a presence. This is now the case in the Okanagan Region of British Columbia. Rates therefore can be expected to rise as a local economy grows.

What are the payment options?

We require the first and last month's rent upon signing the advertising contract. You will be billed for the installation following the ad placement. Rental payments are due monthly in advance by post dated cheques. If you wish to pay annually you will save 5%.
