3 Types of Hanging Signs that Attract Foot Traffic

Unlike signs that can be seen from far away, Hanging Signs are made to attract the eye of people walking nearby. They motivate these potential customers to come in and find out more about what your business offers. In a similar fashion, a professionally designed hanging street sign is seen from the busy roadways by eager potential shoppers. What follows is a guide to 3 types of Hanging Signs that attract foot traffic to your business.

#1: Blade Signs

If you want to boost visual interest,  hanging business signs like Blade Signs do the job splendidly. These custom hanging signs are double-sided, hang perpendicular to your building, and are affixed to its structure. Blade Signs also face forward, so passersby can get a good look at them and easily read their detail as they come and go. Since these Hanging Signs don’t need to be optimized for motorists driving by, there is a ton of room for customization. You’ll find plenty of graphics, subtexts,  fancy fonts, and rich colors & textures on Blade Signs.

Wooden Blade Sign

Outdoor hanging signs can really make a statement. For instance, hanging name signs like the one below definitely let you know what’s inside the restaurant and that it’s worth checking out. If you look closely at Mondos’ logo on the Blade Sign, you’ll see that it pays homage to surfers and the other ocean-based activities Ventura beaches offer. Meanwhile, the wooden font lets diners know they have tacos, boards and brewskies inside. The end result? A very effective wood hanging sign post.

Illuminated Blade Signs

Beautiful door signs are some of the best marketing tools for your business.  Plus, illuminated custom outdoor hanging signs exude that iconic glow everyone loves to see when they walk by or inside the building. A sleek neon outdoor hanging sign like the one below shines brightly and will promote your brand 24/7. The crimson front door sign with the dragon logo is a showstopper, don’t you think?

#2: Hanging Shop Signs

Dangling hanging signs for retail stores are always a hit. The popular type of hanging shop sign shown below typically hangs on chains and sways in the wind. Classic hanging shop signs like the one in front of Fleur de Rye warmly welcome customers into your business.

Moreover, these signs are often much smaller than other types of commercial signage. You may see dozens of them in downtown California streets. To make up for their small stature, this type of door hanger has to project confidence in every way.

Hanging logo sign ideas for office business fronts like the one we created below is a great choice, too. We incorporated orange and white hues into the brand’s circular logo, giving this front door hanging sign a professional touch.

Dave’s Signs can create hanging storefront signs that not only capture the essence of your brand but also stand the test of time, seamlessly blending tradition with modern design. We can also provide large hanging signs to make an even bolder statement.

#3: Hanging Sign Combo

Combining an eye-catching hanging store sign with other types of signs gives you the best of both worlds. For instance, pedestrians coming and going will appreciate the detail we created for Gandolfo’s New York Delicatessen Blade Sign. On the other hand, motorists passing at a high rate of speed don’t need to see the subtlety in the intricate design that characterizes Hanging Signs.

Wall decorations like this boldly-colored Channel Letter Sign at Gandolfo’s New York Deli are extremely visible from far away, which functions very well for passing motorists. Also,  the Blade Sign and Channel Letter Sign on the storefront below really work together to elevate the Gandolfo brand.

As you can see, hanging signs help customers’ eyes train on this small space above your establishment as they pass. A beautiful and attractive one will have them searching for your logo and brand message like it’s the next yellow page entry. Let Dave’s Signs help you take full advantage of this trend.
