Types, Materials, and Applications of Business Signage
Look here! Business signs are right outside your shop to help your potential clients to identify your up and coming trade. This is great for a customer who is searching for you, specifically, or one who may notice you only to remember for the future reference.
It’s a good idea to let people know who you are and what you do! The company signage you choose should be something that will be attractive, informative, and good looking. Something that is fresh, ideally with a few splashes of color, easy to discern graphics, easy to interpret script. The material you choose is up to you, depending on the nature of your business.
Not only do they say what you are selling, they tell a lot about who you are. Choose carefully the image that matches your store – or better yet, choose a sign that gives you something to aspire towards!
Large and small companies have different images, and different clientele. Consider the following – bold, metal signs. Custom designs for offices with the company logo shape and design. Back-lighted ones for an incredible impression, especially at night. A monogrammed logo. Bronze plaques. Architectural signage. Shiny reflective metal signage which catches the sun’s rays. Etched glass signage with a deep colored background.
They can be lit from within or without. They are great for day to evening visibility. They are well made to show the public that you are a serious firm.
Memorial style plaques are also a good choice with a stone type border edge. These block style business signs may look massive but they can be surprisingly affordable and very durable. Although they look a little like a headstone, they often preface a large building complex with various company offices and more than one building. Short to the ground, they can be seen at eye level when you open your window – clearly visible without leaving the drivers’ seat.
It’s a good idea to place inside your office at least one lobby and directory sign on each floor of your building. They show where each business can be found within a larger complex of offices. These are as equally important as outdoor display so that clients don’t lose patience trying to find you and take their business elsewhere. There is nothing worse than an irate customer. Customers vote for their favorite businesses with dollars. If they are unhappy with the way you treat them, they will take their business elsewhere as a way of saying “You lost. That is the way it is in the business world!
If you are looking for something resembling homemade, simpler and down to earth, there are plenty of home crafted designs that can look both handsome and functional. For example, a metal signage is well suited for just about any business – be it supermarket, interior design salon or even a dairy farm. Although metal lends itself to a blue collar industry or even computer related fields, it would certainly be right at home at an auto mechanic workplace.
Metal is one of those materials that can be well camouflaged well. Your sign may have a clear glass or plastic surface but the actual graphics within it is made of metal! Electric lights show the graphics so that the inside material is not so easily determined.
Wooden types might be a great choice for a sole proprietorship, be it accounting firm, crafts boutique or down home juice bar. There are no set rules in this business. The best company sign of all is the one outside your door which helps your clients find you. Determine which style you like the best and chose a design which appeals to your senses. Durability and visibility are also important, as well as a manufacturer who knows the trade and will stand behind the work, providing 100% satisfaction.
