A Starting Guide To Custom Signs
At Dave’s Signs, we have over 20 years of experience in designs for all types of custom signs for businesses, residential neighborhoods, industrial areas, even amazing monument signs and pylon signs for all types of businesses and entities from small to large.
Our goals when working with clients are to develop signs that are beautiful, capture the essence of the business or location, and that communicate a message to everyone who sees the sign. We use our expertise and your ideas to create a draft of the sign, and then once approved, we can design and install the sign and even provide full maintenance programs to keep it looking spectacular.
Many of our customers have a very good idea of what they want their new custom signs to look like. Others may have a general idea, or they may have some elements of the sign they want to include, but are less certain of the overall design. To help you to get started, here are some important considerations that will help us to design the perfect sign for your business or location.
Size and Shape
There are many different types of signs from monument or pylon signs to lettering and artistic signs. If you have an idea of the size and shape of the sign you want, let us know.
A sign should be in proportion to the location. For example, a sign in a restaurant or lounge for the restrooms should be evident, but blend into the overall signage and design of the location. A sign for product sales need to be attention grabbing and get people interested in walking into your business to learn more.
The more unique the shape, the more interesting the sign will appear at first glance. However, with custom signs, there has to be a delicate balance between the message and the overall design. With our expert designers and sign professionals, we can help you to create just the perfect look, creating interest and also providing the information your customer’s need.
Colors and Lighting
One of the common issues we see with many signs is the overuse of colors and lighting to make up for design deficiencies. With our signs, we put the design first, and then use the colors and the lighting to enhance the effects.
Through this process, the sign is a great marketing tool both during the daylight as well as when the sun goes down. For different types of business signage that is required during the day, in the evening, or 24/7 may be more critical, and our sign designers are here to make sure the custom signs we design are ideal for your unique needs.
