1. Buying Your Signs If you have existing signage and the structure is fundamentally sound and compatible, you may
simply desire to change sign faces. This is usually, but not always, less expensive. To change
the face, a local sign subcontractor must measure the sign faces, the visible opening, and
determine the fastening system. There will normally be a “trip charge” for gathering this information. To insure
the consistency of the logo, lighting for all signs must be fluorescent. No halide lighting will be allowed, so you
may need to change the internal lighting system of an existing sign.
If you are building a new motel, there is more time in which to order the sign, assuring you that they will be ready
for installation when you are. Typical “lead time” for new sign faces is four to six weeks.
Three sign companies have been approved by Motel 6 as sign suppliers. We have confidence in their ability to
deliver a quality product. Approval of an alternate supplier is possible, but our standards require very
specialized machinery and techniques, which most sign companies simply don’t have. We suggest you contact
all three of our approved suppliers and determine which you wish to use based on price, delivery, and terms.
These three companies operate on a national basis and are equipped to manufacture your signs to meet the
specifications of Motel 6. They are able to arrange the installation of your new signs as well as assist in the
permitting process if needed:
