Image of money inside a sprout for Oregon Travel Experience blog post on highway business signs.In the last post about Oregon highway business signs, we explored what types of businesses can have their logo placed on a blue highway sign. In today’s blog, we’ll take a peek at the cost structure and how long the contract lasts.

How much will it cost?

Sign fees are determined  by several factors, including highway location and traffic density:

Highway business signs located on I-5, cost between $360 and $480 per year when located north of Salem to Portland. However, please contact our office to determine the exact cost. These quotes are based on exit number and whether or not you select one direction (north or southbound) or both.

On I-5, from Ashland to Eugene, costs dip to between $288 to $360 per year, once again based on exit location and number of signs needed.

Other factors may affect the total cost, such as supplemental off-Interstate signs (which typically show the mileage to your business if it cannot be seen from the freeway). You can read more about the details on our highway business signs “Frequently Asked Questions” (FAQs) page.

How long does my contract last?

Contract prices are good for one year and business owners will be sent an automatic renewal notice. If you decide to renew, you simply fill out the enclosed renewal form and mail it with your payment to our office. With an annual renewal, you’ll have plenty of time to analyze if the sign works for you or not.

Our goal is to drive traffic your way and ensure that all state and federal regulations about highway signs are met. While navigating regulatory measures can be challenging, our knowledgeable employees are here to help you.

As a business consultant, I always look at the possibility of signage off premise for my clients. They key is to hire a professional for the design if road signage is plausible.
