How to Brand Your Growing Business with Corporate Building Signs

As anyone who has tried to grow their business knows, it’s vital to focus on your branding efforts. After all, even Pepsi and Coca-Cola still work on branding, and they’ve been America’s favorite sodas since the 1940s. There are many different aspects of branding for you to work on, including your corporate signs. Without proper signage, your customers won’t be able to connect each of your products to your specific company. Instead, read on to find out more about corporate building signs that give your prospective customers a lasting impression.

Steps to Branding with Corporate Building Signs

Before you begin designing your signs, make sure you know what colors and logo you’re going to use. Daves’s Signs does excellent design work. We can take anything from a loose sketch to existing logos, fonts, colors—to brand guidelines or architectural renderings that were done by an agency, to collaborate and present you with sign solutions.

For instance, we can take your existing logo to come up with eye-catching sign ideas, resulting in something wonderful in terms of look and feel that fits your needs. Dave’s Signs is also fully knowledgeable about what the city allows for signage. We’ll work to get you a beautiful sign that checks all the boxes when it comes to local ordinances.

Starting from scratch? No problem—our design team can collaborate with you to design the perfect branding solution for your business needs. In short, we’ll design, fabricate and install a sign that meets all city requirements and elevates your brand.

Lastly, you’ll need to decide between several different sign types. Some are easier to choose than others based purely on your location or industry.

Custom Signs That Make Excellent Corporate Building Signs

The custom sign types available from Dave’s Signs include:

Below is some information about these custom signs, including how they draw attention to your brand.

Dimensional Letters 

Storefront Signs

Dimensional Letter Signs refer to any lettering or logo that has three dimensions (as opposed to flat panels). You may also hear them called metal letters, plastic cut letters or 3D graphics too. While dimensional letters are not intrinsically illuminated, they can be lit in some ways. When similar letters are internally illuminated or backlit, they are called channel letters.

Illuminated Signs

If your business is open after dark, Illuminated Signs are a must-have. Illuminated signs will help people engage with your business, while also providing high visibility day and night. Additionally, bear in mind that some shopping centers and property management companies make it mandatory that your storefront signs be illuminated. For more information on illuminated signs check out our post, “What are the Different Types of Lighted Signs? Here are our Top 5.”

Neon Signs

If you want to make a lasting impression, Neon Signs have been getting desired results for brands for over a century. Neon tubing has been a popular solution for both creating and accenting signs for over 100 years, and their steady, piercing lights have a high visual impact, bringing attention to the artwork from blocks away. The businesses that choose neon signs light up the night with distinct primary colors, making them a definite focal point at night, thereby branding your business.

Monument Signs

For many hotels, shopping malls, apartment complexes, business parks, restaurants, and even city entryways, exterior monument signs are truly impressive and make a large impact. Monument signage provides a wonderful landmark for your company by letting all passers-by know exactly who and where you are.

Property Management Signs

Property Management Signs covers all sign types for apartments, planned communities, shopping malls, hotels, office buildings & properties, and retail outlets. They work hard to elevate your brand and establish your reputation, along with helping your business communicate effectively with the local community with a cohesive look and functionality throughout.

Do I Really Need a High-Quality Corporate Sign?

Have you ever been to a store that’s still using a worn-out sign that’s seen better days? If so, you already know how unprofessional this can look. These battered signs might be considered charming at a vegetable stand on the side of the road. However, if you plan to be in business for the long run, then it’s best to invest in high-quality signs.

So, to answer the question, yes, you do need a high-quality corporate sign. Consider beautiful, professional corporate building signs a sound investment since placing one outside your building or outside of your restaurant is going to get you more attention, better-paying customers and a better all-around feeling about your business.

Does Cold Weather Affect Neon Signs?

Neon signs are iconic, and you can find them scattered all around California and the rest of the country. In fact, the state is home to the oldest constantly running neon light in the world,  a neon light that was found at Clifton’s Cafeteria in Los Angeles.

They’re a popular choice for bars and restaurants because they look classy and give off a fun vibe that fits with food, drinks, and entertainment. But how do neon signs hold up in cold weather? This is a question that many business owners ask themselves when looking for ways to increase their business.

If you are wondering the same thing, you’ve come to the right place. Here, we will discuss everything from how neon signs react to different temperatures to what materials are used in making them. So read on and find out more about what you need to know about neon signs and cold weather.

Neon Signs & Cold Weather

To understand how a neon sign will react in cold temperatures, you first have to understand what’s happening inside the tube of the sign when it gets too chilly outside. In short, two things that can happen: Either the gas inside of the glass tube can cool off and turn into a liquid, or it can crystallize on the inner walls. When you see your neon sign begin to flicker as if it is having trouble working properly, then this means that that gas has turned into a liquid inside its glass tube. Flickering neon doesn’t necessarily mean a broken sign; it simply means the sign needs to be re-pressurized most of the time.

Different Types of Neon Signs


Below are the types of neon signs you are most likely to see in the United States:

    • Pure neon: These are glass signs that use only neon gas as the source of their light. They emit red photons, which results in very vivid and bright red neon lights. Pure neon signs are less susceptible to cold weather.
    • Neon/argon blend: This type of sign is similar to pure neon signs, but they contain a small amount of argon with the neon to create different colors. Argon reacts strongly to cold weather, and the ratio of it to neon will determine how the brightness and performance of a neon sign are affected in the winter. They also dim and flicker more than other neon signs in cold weather.
    • Neon/helium blend: These signs have helium added to lower their operating temperature range. They emit a very bright blue color which is visible from great distances at night, especially if they are backlit. Also, both helium and argon blended neon signs in blue, green, yellow and white colors are more prone to discoloration in cold weather temperatures.


Do Southern California Winters Get Cold Enough to Affect a Neon Sign?

As mentioned, argon gas is especially susceptible to cold weather. Its atoms can become affected at temperatures 45˚F and under. This causes the gas molecules to move more slowly and may cause your neon sign to appear slightly dimmer. As such, if you live in Southern California, you may wonder if it gets cold enough here to affect a custom neon sign.

Winter weather temperatures in Southern California get down to around 60˚F in the day and with cooler lows ranging around 40-50˚F at night. This means it’s not uncommon for some neon signage to experience a slight dimming at night. Especially those filled with argon.

What Can You Do for Your Neon Signs?

Placing your neon signage on the inside of the store’s windows vs. outside will typically cut down on the negative effects cold weather can have on your glass neon sign. It will keep the tube a bit warmer and also protect it from being hit by debris. Additionally, you can place your sign in front of an air vent to help increase airflow around the tubes; this will prevent moisture buildup inside them when they are not on.

LED Neon Signs

LED Neon Sign

If you are looking for neon signage that will perform better than traditional ones in cold weather, consider opting for an LED version instead. LED illuminated signs emit the same halo glow you see with glass neon, but they run on electricity instead of gas. Also, having LED signs instead of neon ones means that there is no need for warming up and the light will not experience any dimming in cold weather conditions.

Contact Dave’s Signs for Your Custom Sign Needs

If you notice that the lights from your neon sign seem dimmer than usual or if they start flickering for no reason, you should turn the sign-off and give us a call as soon as possible. We will be happy to come out and take a look at your neon sign and let you know what we would recommend that you do.

Neon signage attracts attention like no other type of signage, and Dave’s Signs is a leader in the industry for creating this popular type of handmade signage. If you need to have your custom neon sign replaced or repaired, our experts are available to assist with any questions or concerns that you may have about maintaining your signage throughout the year. Our goal is to ensure our customers have great signage at all times of the day.

Whether your business is looking for something warm or cool-colored, glass neon or LED neon, we have what you are looking for at great prices. Simply call us at (805) 641-1387 or fill out our online form to get a fast and free estimate.

Illuminated Signs that Help Meet California’s Clean Energy Goals

California is one of the most progressive states when it comes to renewable energy. And its goal is for all electricity in the state to come from carbon-free sources over the next 2-3 decades. Illuminated signs can also be a part of California’s Clean Energy Project. This article will talk about how lighted signs can help your business meet clean energy goals.

LED-Lit Signs

Decorative and practical, LED-lit signs are a great way to meet solar goals. This type of signage makes branding and promotional messages easy, as well as provides useful information such as hours of operation or contact details.

LED-Lit signs use much less energy than traditional incandescent lights, oftentimes using as much as 75% less energy. LEDs can also save you in replacement costs because they can last 25 times longer than regular incandescent lighting.

Electronic Illuminated Signs

illuminated sign with digital lighting

Electronic illuminated signs are a special type of LED or digital sign that displays things such as time & temperature and gas prices. Also, many backlit, monument, pylon, real estate and property signs use electronic illuminated signage.

Because these signs can be powered with electricity created by a nearby solar panel, they can be cost-effective, while also assisting with meeting California’s clean energy goals. In addition, bright, daylight-visible light-emitting diode bulbs provide over 100,000 hours of continuous operation, which outlasts comparable incandescent lamps significantly.

Energy Star Certified Signage

Illuminated signs that use barnyard lighting

Energy Star signage meets the state’s stringent energy efficiency standards, as they are 18% more efficient than traditional illuminated options. This type of signage uses lightbulbs that are highly efficient and last longer. In addition, this special type of custom signage has cooler running panel tech that is extremely affordable.


Historic restoration we did for Castillo Inn at the Beach.

If your business already has an illuminated sign, you don’t have to worry about having to find a new one. LED retrofitting can be done on almost all types of existing signs, allowing them to operate more efficiently and for longer periods of time. In a nutshell, they use less energy overall.

Green Fabrication Processes

Dave’s Signs provides the highest quality signage displays and we reduce our carbon footprint through our company-wide green initiatives. By using green fabrication processes and materials whenever possible, we continue to reduce the environmental impact of our work.

For example, Dave’s Signs’ acrylic lightboxes are green and made of 100% post-consumer recycled acrylic plastic. The acrylic material in them is heated to high temperatures to form a uniform sheet that is cut into shape. This process creates very little waste. Additionally, it allows us to use only the amount of material necessary for each sign, thereby reducing our environmental impact even more.

Also, for any paint products used in the restoration of lit and unlit signs, we partner with <> for our customers and minimize waste of paint and any other substances used in the sign manufacturing process.

The Top Reasons Why You Need Office Suite Signs

It’s no secret that signage is an important aspect of commercial property. Whether you’re a large company or small business, it’s vital to your success that people can easily find your office suite. For this reason, we offer office suite signs as part of our services!

What are Office Suite Signs?

Office Suite Sign

Office suite signs are plaques or other types of interior signage that are placed in a visible location on the office door or beside it to ensure they’re visible to everyone passing by. They bring artwork, information, branding, and more to the building’s interior. The business’s name, office suite number, department name, and other details are typically listed on the plaque.

Top Reasons You Need Office Suite Signage

Office suite signs are important for many reasons – here are just a few:

1. Professionalism – Building Confidence

A professionally-inspired indoor office sign impresses clients and also makes your staff feel like they are professionals too. This aspect will also show in the way they treat your customers.

2. Aesthetics that Enhance Your Brand

Custom office suite signs provide a uniform and professional look.  For example, a plexiglass sign with standoffs may compliment a contemporary office, whereas classic engraved signage could be a fit for a more traditional space. Also, they can complement and enhance almost any aesthetic, turning the drab interiors and bare walls of an office suite into something unique and vibrant.

3. Safety & ADA Compliance

Suite signs help promote workplace safety through better awareness of working locations by employees and visitors alike, as well as the location of exits, fire alarms, and emergency equipment.

In addition, there are benefits to keeping track of who is in which offices from a safety standpoint too. For instance, office suite signage allows you to easily identify which office someone is in if they don’t come to a meeting point during a real evacuation or drill.

4. Wayfinding Solutions

At the end of the day, every office is a place of business. Most office suites have several doors, making it easy for people to get lost – even if they are familiar with the building. For instance, if customers come in for a meeting, they can find the right conference room easily.

5. Save Money Especially When Changes Happen

Office suite signs

Office suite signs are cost-effective and take up very little space; making them perfect for small to medium businesses. They reinforce your brand, while also presenting an inexpensive form of advertising for your company, which can increase exposure.

Lastly, when a new tenant comes in there are minimal costs for adding them since all you have to do is create a new plaque.

No off-the-shelf sign will make your brand stand out better than a custom-made Halo-Lit Channel Letter Sign. 

Check out the sign we did for Fluid State. They’re located in a historic bank building in downtown Ventura. They wanted something unique to grab attention, so we wrapped the sign around the corner of the building and lit it up with LED lights.

Since the building is on a corner, the sign can be seen around the block. However, if you are passing by up close, you’ll want to go around the restaurant to see the whole sign. Now that’s getting attention!

While unlighted signs may look appealing during the day, studies have consistently shown that illuminated signs draw attention more quickly and leave a lasting impression compared to non-illuminated designs.
