Sign Types and Materials

channel letter signs

LED Channel Letter Signs

LED channel letter signs are very vivid, colorful and bold. They may be expensive, but many businesses consider them to be well worth the investment. LED channel signs have front lit illumination and reverse channel letters, which are valued by clients who want a prestigious image for their company. Perhaps the biggest advantage to LED channel letter signs is that they can stand out even during the dark of night due to their bright illumination and reverse channel letters, a major plus.

Acrylic Signs

Acrylic signs are some of the most professional and versatile signs that you could buy to display your office’s name. Acrylic signs are primarily used for offices, but due to the high quality nature of the designs, they are excellent for both indoor and outdoor use. In contrast, most other signs are relegated to being designed specifically for indoor or outdoor. It’s for this reason that many offices choose to go with acrylic signs to display their company’s name.

Stand Off Wall Signs

Stand Off Wall Signs aren’t exactly their own category of signs; rather, they are a variation of acrylic signs with a simple metal standoff (hence the name) that gives the signs a very three dimensional look. Standoff wall signs can be customized easily by being cut into shapes and with lights added behind them to illuminate the signs in the dark. Just like normal acrylic signs, standoff wall signs can be built both indoors and outdoors.

Vehicle graphics are an excellent way to advertise your products or services while on the road. Many companies and businesses today have their own vehicles with their logo, phone number, and a quick summary of products and services offered imprinted on the car’s side. By using vehicle graphics, you are able to get your company’s name and message out to people who previously wouldn’t have known of your business.

 

A-frame side walk signs

Sidewalk Signs

Sidewalk signs are a very common way to advertise for restaurants in cities and other heavily populated areas. This is because some restaurants can be crammed into crowded buildings, and hungry people can walk on by without even noticing the restaurant or having an idea of what they serve. If you own a restaurant in a crowded area, a sidewalk sign will be one of the most effective ways to draw customers in by displaying your prices, what you serve, and any specials you have going on that day.

Window Graphics

Window graphics are one of the best ways available to vividly display what your business is about on your business itself. Window graphics are large, colorful and attractive. Even people who aren’t interested in what your business offers will still notice them when they walk or drive by. On window graphics, you can display any specials you have going on, your hours, and positive images depicting what your company is about.

 

awing signs

Awning Signs

Awning signs display to potential customers that your business or restaurant is one of class. Only a few restaurants have awning signs, let along an actual awning. An awning alone will make your building look significantly more attractive. But one of the best things of setting up an awning sign is that it will be unique to your business. There are an unlimited number of slogans, fabrics, colors, and fonts that you could display on your awning sign

blade signs

Blade Signs

Blade signs project your company’s name and additional writings such as your motto or business hours out from the building. Much like awning signs, blade signs are unique to your business and grab the attention of people walking by as not a whole lot of other businesses and restaurants have them as well. Blade signs give your business a very modern and contemporary look to attract customers.

 

 

wall signs

Wall Signs

The overwhelming majority of big businesses in America have their company’s logo and/or motto extended across the wall in big, bold letters. This type of sign is called a wall sign. Adding a wall sign to your company will give it a very professional and rich look, which will greatly improve customer’s feelings about your company and make them more comfortable buying products or services from you.

Every city in the United States, and perhaps the overwhelming majority of cities in the world, have directional signs.

pole signs signs

Pole Signs

A lot of restaurants and businesses have pole signs, and with good reason. Pole signs are effective. People who are driving or walking from great distances away will be able to see your business’s name from long distances away. Tourists may just be passing through town without even knowledge of your restaurant or business. Pole signs put an end to that and greatly increase in exposure for your company. If you’re serious about bringing in customers, then pole signs are the way to go.

 

 

pylon signs

Pylon Signs

Pylon signs are designed to display multiple names of businesses that are located within the same area. Many streets and/or blocks with several restaurants and businesses lined up against one another will have a pylon sign or two standing proudly by the street with the logos and sometimes even the mottos of all the businesses exhibited to drivers and people walking by. If you have several competitive businesses and restaurants located right next to yours, putting your company’s name on the pylon sign shouldn’t be an option. It should be something you do without question.

 

Wall murals - wall graphics

Wall Wraps and Murals

Sometimes the best way to attract people to your company or business isn’t to display your company’s name or motto. Rather, it’s to depict artwork that brings your company’s message across. Wall wraps and murals are an excellent way to convey that artwork, in a beautiful and flowing fashion. Murals take up an entire wall, people will easily be able to see what your business represents. Even if they aren’t interested in your business, they’ll still be intrigued by the beauty of the artwork!

 

vehicle wraps miami

Vehicle Wraps

As you may have guessed, vehicle wraps are the same thing as wall wraps and murals, only on cars. Just as vehicle graphics display your company’s name, logo, motto and basic information on the side of the car, vehicle wraps display the same kind of artwork that you would expect on a mural, only on the road. Many businesses choose to combine vehicle wraps with vehicle graphics, in order to set their company’s logo and information against a sprawling piece of artwork.

Storefront Vinyl Lettering

Big, bold words on the front windows to your restaurant or business is what storefront vinyl lettering is all about.

Vinyl lettering provides an inexpensive and efficient way of putting your company’s logo, motto, products, services, and store hours out for everyone to see.

 

 

post signs

Post and Panel Signs

Post and panel signs provide excellent convenience for customers who come by your way. These kinds of signs are found primarily at big car dealerships to give customers directions on where to go (ex. Trucks this way, mechanic shop that way, used vehicles this direction, etc). They can just as easily be used for other businesses and companies, such as to direct customers to parking, main offices, and so on. Also there are very popular with property signs, directorties and realtors information.

Light Boxes

Light boxes will give your company or business a very modern and upbeat look. Whether it’s at day or night, light boxes are illuminated for everyone to see. Usually, the company’s name and a picture of what he company sells or provides is depicted on the light box. For example, a cell phone coverage family may put their name and a picture of a cell phone or of nationwide coverage will be put on the light box.

Sign Cabinets

Sign cabinets are yet another way to draw attention to your business at the storefront. Cabinet signs are offered in an extremely wide range of shapes, sizes, colors and materials. You may choose to depict your sign with 3-D graphics, with acrylic letters, or with vinyl wording. It’s ultimately up to you to choose what you want to do, but your sign can be set up anyway you want it.

 

store front window signage

Store Window Signs

Rather than decorate your actual store windows with colorful words and lettering, you can simply set up a store window sign. An excellent benefit to setting up store window signs is that you can set up a lot of them, displaying several of your products and special deals going on, and you can also rotate them out very easily. If you have one sign set up one month displaying special summer deals you have, a few months later you can pull it down and set up a sign depicting deals for the winter you have going on.

 

yard signs - coroplast signs

Yard Signs

Today, it seems that real estate advertisements and political campaigning dominate yard signs. Nonetheless, yard signs are very cheap and efficient way to advertise for your business. You can buy yard signs in bulk, and also buy a wide variety of them. The name of your business, along with the slogan, mottos and special deals can all be plainly but colorfully depicted, and you can spread the signs all around town to attract a lot of potential customers.

 

yard signs - real estate signs

Real Estate Signs

Real estate signs are seemingly everywhere, sometimes even more so than political advertisements during election seasons. But whether you’re a realtor selling houses on the market or a potential buyer looking for your own home, real estate signs are effective. They point out a lot of information on a home for sale at once: who’s selling the home, the price of the home, the realtor’s contact information, and quick facts about the home such as square footage, special rooms, and so on.

Mesh Fence Banners

These are the long, streamer posters that are stretched out along fences. Mesh fence banners are usually used to announce something big for a company: an opening day, a special blowout sale on a specific weekend, and so on. If you’re planning on a special event for your business in the near future, you should plan on investing in mesh fence banners. They’ll bring more people in than you may expect.

Retail Displays

Retail displays are used to advertise and provide sample of specific new products and special deals in stores. Examples include displays of special jewelry, perfumes, and shoes. A sample or demo of the new product will always be displayed, along with a brief explanation of what the special deal is and why a customer should buy it. We’ve all seen retail displays before, and probably can’t deny that we’ve been sucked into checking them out before as well.

 

 

 

Point of Sale Signs

Point of sale signs are very specific in what they’re designed for: they’re made to point out specific special deals that your company offers in a way that is both enthusiastic and appealing. For example, you may set up a “buy two, get one free!” or “two for $10!” sign. Consumers on the market are always on the search for good deals, and point of sale signs can be bought in bulks to draw people in.

 

Hanging Signs

Hanging signs are common for businesses and restaurants to set up in crowded downtowns where a lot of places have to squeeze themselves in next to each other, some of which are very competitive with one another. You don’t want potential customers to just be walking on by without even noticing your business, so a hanging sign will guarantee that at least some people notice your business and will give a stop by.

 

Floor Graphics

Much like table graphics, floor graphics aren’t for advertising, but they’re still worth the extra investment. Floor graphics can make customers feel more comfortable and at home while shopping at your store or business, and they can also provide some useful information such as directing customers to different aisles and having your mottos written down to remind people of what your business is all about and what it stands for.

 

Table Graphics

Table graphics are become more and more common in restaurants who want to give their customers more to look at than just their food and a dull table while eating. While table graphics aren’t the best way to advertise (if that’s what you’re looking for in a sign), that’s not what they’re designed for either. Rather, they are designed to make customers feel more comfortable and at home while eating at your restaurant.

 

 

Flags and Feather Flags

We commonly associate flags and feather flags with car dealerships, political campaigns, and job fairs for advertising. But in recent years, more and more businesses have been utilizing flags and feather flags to promote and advertise themselves. Feather flags are offered at a fair price and provide a unique spin on advertising, which can be a major plus by attracting more people over to your business.

 

Foam Board Signs

Foam board is a material made up a sheet of polystyrene in between two sheets of paper that’s acid-free. Not only is foam board surprisingly durable in this manner, but it is also very flexible and friendly for the environment. As a very versatile material, it is used extensively in homes, offices, businesses and companies. Foam boards also come in a variety of shapes and colors.

 

Posters

All of us are more familiar with posters than any other type of sign. Posters for movies, novels, comic books, TV shows and video games feature prominently in stores, at theaters, and even in some of our own homes. Posters are able to effectively convey the tone and type of movies and video games that they display, so the same logic applies to your business. Don’t discount posters as a viable option for advertising your business.
