Letters inside a window may not require a permit
These 12-in.-tall foam cutout letters popped out at me as I drove by. And they didn’t require a permit because they fit within the window sign allowance for the city. This sign makes a stronger impression than a higher-up storefront sign because the 2-in.-thick letters are right at eye level.
The acrylic-faced foam letters [available from Gemini Inc., www.geminisignproducts.com
] are attached to a panel of ¼-in. clear acrylic that is hung from the ceiling inside the window. At night, it’s lit from above. The two clamp-on work lights do the job just fine. The window sign is powerful enough to be this business’s only sign.
