Things You'll Need
- A Shop

Create a Business Plan. You will need a business plan to get funding for your shop location, even if you plan to work out of your own garage for the time being. In the future, you may want to or need to expand your shop and your business plan will help you secure funds for that kind of growth. A business plan can also help you get the funding you will need for all of your materials, furniture, and tools for your sign business.
Set Up Shop. Create and organize your sign shop so you can work under the best conditions and be efficient and effective. You should have one space for the wood working and actually creating the signs, and another space for painting and coloring the signs.
Promote. Promote your new sign business with, first and foremost, your own sign promoting your shop! You can also benefit from a website and ads in your local paper.
