How To Choose A Sign For Your Business

Making your mark in a competitive landscape is a lot about using the right advertising and marketing strategies. And choosing a sign for your business is one important tool in your advertising arsenal. Check out this restaurant sign below we did for Toppers Pizza Place in Camarillo, California.

Signs For Your Business

At Dave’s Signs, we firmly believe that attracting customers to your business is all about creating the right first impression. When you choose the right kind of sign for your business, it improves the appearance of your storefront, and helps attract customers.

Here are some tips on how to choose a sign for your business…

  • Quality – While there are a large number of companies out there that can provide cheap business signs, it important that you look for a credible operator that provides you the perfect balance of quality and cost. A poorly-designed or shabbily structured sign will have negative impact on your reputation. Check out this office sign we completed below for Ambulnz™. It’s clean, simple and professional.Signs For Your Business
  • The Right Branding – It’s important that your business sign reflects your brand identity. The design, structure, and the colors used need to complement your brand image.
  • Simplicity in Design – When getting your sign designed, make sure that it has a simple and clean design. Adding too much of information, too many colors or excessive lighting will make the sign look too cluttered, impacting its readability. Your signs should have just the right amount of information to bring in more foot traffic.
  • The Right Materials – While there are a large number of materials that can be used in outdoor signage, it’s important that you choose something which matches the aesthetic of your storefront. Channel letter signs with halo-lit lighting is a good choice for outdoors and can be constructed in different types of metals and acrylic. Make sure that the materials that you opt for would be able to weather the elements and last for a number of years with minimal maintenance. Check out the bank sign below. It looks like wood, but its actually made out of acrylic.

When it comes to outdoor signage, there are a number of different sign types to choose from.

Channel Letters- What Are They?

Channel letters are illuminated letters and graphics that are individually cut and installed on storefronts and various other commercial settings such as restaurants, pubs, bars, shopping malls, specialty stores, retail stores and more. They are one of the best mediums of storefront identification. Since each letter is formed separately and has its own light source, the signage creates a highly impactful 3D effect.

Why Channel Letters Are a Great Option

When passersby and motorists view your signage it creates a great impression. Good quality channel letters indicate to potential clients that your establishment is serious about its business. Professionally designed and beautifully fabricated channel letter signs are one of the best ways to create an impact on the public, especially during the nighttime. We created this channel letter sign for Yolanda’s Mexican Cafe, it looks great at night!
