In this short note, we compare the combinatorial sign assignment of Manolescu, Ozsváth, Szabó, and Thurston for grid homology of knots and links in with the sign assignment coming from a coherent system of orientations on Whitney disks. Although these constructions produce different signs, a small modification of the convention in either of the two methods results in identical sign assignments, and thus identical chain complexes.
