Our Sign & Post Services

Note: For the past 10 years, we've been successful in holding the line on the prices will had to charge for our services. However, this past year market increases on materials to gasoline necessitates that we increase our fees on March 1st 2022 by $5.00. Specifically, an installation will become $50, Fixes/ Moves will change to $30 and our hourly rate for custom signs and Billboards will become $60 per hour.

We will continue to meet your sign needs as promptly and professionally as possible; as always, we value the business relationships we have with each and every one of you and we pride ourselves in our customer service.

Installation of Post & Sign: $50.00 within our Normal Service Area. Surcharges do apply to our Extended Service Area on top of the installation fee.  Our Colonial Posts (Swing Arm Posts) are 4” x 4” x 8’ wooden post, painted white. Prices are based on a 6 month lease period. 
Move of post at the same address: an additional $30 to reset the post where an install has already occurred.
Fix/Reset: We reserve the right to charge a fix fee $30.
Renewal of post: We charge $25 per post for a further 6 months lease period. You will be contacted at the beginning of the renewal month to ask the status of the post(s) and whether you would like to renew for a further lease period or have the ost pulled. 
New Agent: We will gladly pick up your signs at no charge the first time. We will be glad to store them for future use however, we request that you keep 1-2 panels just in case we have an extra post, are in the area and can install same day.  We will contact you for your billing information and ONLY bill after we have completed the work.

Remove Post from Property: No charge. Prompt notification of post removal is greatly appreciated. We prefer to retrieve our posts rather than charge MIA/Broken post fees. We will ask the Realtor to reach out to the new homeowner to find the missing post 

Missing In Action /Broken post fee is $150.00.  Posts are the assets of Sign Guy Inc. and are not transferable between houses or agents.

S.G.I. Service Map

Please email all orders to thesignguyinc@outlook.com or, in a pinch, text them to 207-899-5152 .

Please put the properties address in the subject line.

We will need your name, organization, Realtors Name (if an admin) and phone numbers. If it's an install, remove, fix, etc. a brief description of the property and the nearest cross roads as a reference.

Land Listings, Houses without Numbers and Home Owners that have special needs i.e. Irrigation systems r invisible dog fences:

Please Flag where you would like the post to go. We like to have a picture of the property to reference (with flag) along with a description of how to get to the property (i.e. nearby cross roads). We heavily depend on GPS, so GPS addresses are helpful. Lot maps are essential with Developments. Finally, with land listings that have no other landmarks to reference, we like telephone pole numbers (i.e. the flag is between pole 1A and 1B).


All condo's MUST have written permission, from the condo association, with a description of where they will allow the post (exerts form their bylaws works too). This needs to be emailed prior to the install, so it can be attached to the order. If we do not have this, we can not install. More often than not, tenants and association members WILL come out whist we are at the property to confront our installer.

Seasonal Information:

MUD SEASON: After the thaw, there are often many posts that will need to be fixed. The ground (from frozen to soft) is due to spring's rain and warmer weather, which causes the post to lean. Especially if pulled on. A little is okay, however, we take pride in how our posts look, and we want to know if it is significant enough to warrant a fix. Please let us know and we will happily go out to rectify its appearance.

RAIN: We can not install in the rain unless it is light due to the fact that the hole can fill up with water and, the once dry dirt from the hole, can turn to soup. Also, the post will most  likely lean, as mud doesn't compact well and we would have to return more than once to fix said post.

SLEAT, SNOW & HAIL: We can, and usually, travel over 200 miles a day. So the roads must be cleared, sanded, and salted before we can head out. We can't install during freezing rain or heavy snow (visibility lessened) as our installer usually parks in the brake down lane (or a driveway if possible) with hazards on. Our installer has had too many near misses, from drivers not paying attention or due to icy conditions. Although these near misses can happen at any time of the year.

WARMER WEATHER (Dry): When we install in dry weather (spring, summer and fall) we normally paint the post on site so that our posts look their best. ALWAYS be mindful when putting up riders or panels during this time as, in all likelihood, it has wet paint and we don't want you to ruin your outfit or shoes.
