Is it Time to Update Your Business Directory Signs?

Business Directory Signs - Kanan Village

Business directory signs are specifically designed to provide valuable information for customers and potential customers. However, we live in a world of rapid change and things that were relevant yesterday may not have much meaning tomorrow. Take a look at your directory signage. Maybe today is a good day to update, upgrade, or improve your business image.

Improve the Customer Experience

Effective business directory signs can do more than just inform. When you view the sign we did for the Cabrillo Business Park; you can easily tell which businesses are there. Thanks to the simple and easy to read arrows by each company, you know immediately where they are located. Two companies are straight ahead while the other two businesses are located to the left. This sign is not only informative; it’s easy on the eyes and a pleasure to look at.

Part of the Landscape

When you come to Dave’s Signs for business directory signs, we help you get the most from your signage. The sign we did for the Shops at Kanan Village is not only a great directory sign; it’s an effective monument sign that makes an exceptional landmark. When your sign becomes a landmark, it is part of the everyday thinking process of people who live in the area. Before you know it, they’ll be telling others to look for your sign when they give directions.

Sophisticated Yet Professional

When you get out of your car and walk up to the professional building at 2815 Townsgate Road in Westlake Village, you’ll see one of the most impressive business directory signs in the area. Why is it impressive? Because it presents an air of sophistication and professionalism that you’d expect to find with legal and financial services.

Four Things a Professional Sign Service Can Do for Your Windows

When you check out a business, you may not be too concerned with what’s in or on their windows. However, this doesn’t matter because windows have a subtle effect and you’ll notice them whether you realize it or not. Your window signs can make a great impression, bad impression, or no impression at all. Dave’s Signs is there to make sure that your windows add (and do not take away from) your business. Here are some things that our sign service can do for windows.

1. Professionalism

Your customers expect you and your employees to act in a professional manner. This is the reason why they dress the same and treat people in a courteous and helpful way. When your window signs present a professional appearance, it adds to your business image. That’s why most businesses don’t make their own signs. Signs from a professional sign service are more impressive.

2. Important Information

Business hours can vary from company to company, and everyone wants to know when you are open or closed. When people check out the Ventura Isle Marina window, they know if it’s open for business or not. There is no need to display “open” or “closed” window signs.

3. Logo Advertising

Your logo is your business. That’s what most people will remember when they think of you. It’s important to get your logo into as many minds as possible. Your window signs give you another chance to proudly display your logo alongside your business name. It’s good business to take advantage of this space.

Gas Stations Signs – The Importance of Visibility

The fuel industry is one of the most competitive businesses today, and that’s why so many fuel stations offer a wide range of products and services. However, you may not get as many customers as you like if they don’t notice your signs. In fact, when it comes to gas station signs, visibility may be the most important factor to consider. Here is why “being seen” is vital to your gasoline business.

Remove All Doubt

Nothing is more frustrating than trying to find a service station when you need one. Your business needs “first-time” customers because that is where regular customers come from. You can have the address and location on GPS, but this doesn’t always tell the whole story. When there is some doubt as to the location of a service station, your gas station signs can remove that doubt and show the way. But they can’t be effective unless they have maximum visibility, like the towering sign at the Conserv Fuel location. There is no way that anyone driving in the area is going to miss this sign.

Sell Your Wares

Most fuel stations sell food and other services these days, but it’s important to let everyone know. It’s a good idea to let hungry customers know you run a food market and a Subway sandwich shop. If they are not sure which service station to frequent, these options can clinch the deal in your favor.

The Value of First Impressions

When your signs are well-kept and looking good, it’s a direct reflection on your business. Visibility is not worth much if it doesn’t leave a lasting positive impression. Dave’s Signs offers complete gas station signs services from the design process to manufacturing, to installation, to maintenance.

4 Ways to Get More from Your Monument Signs

Monument signage is an important part of the Southern California landscape. Many businesses understand their importance, but not everyone is taking full advantage of monument sign design and its versatility. Here are four things that your sign professionals at Dave’s Signs can do for you, to help you take advantage of this exceptional form of advertising.

1.  Share the Cost

Check out the sign we did for the Red Horse Plaza. It advertises five businesses in this shopping center, and there is room to add two more. By including other businesses in your monument sign design, you can share the costs of advertising and promote your shopping center. This is a “win-win” situation for everyone involved.

2. Increase Your Advertising with Business Logos

Monument signage informs customers and potential customers, but it’s also great advertising media. All you have to do is add your business logo to the sign. Notice the horse in the Red Horse Plaza sign, and other businesses added their logos to their messages.

3. Set a Mood

Both the Pierpont Inn and Ojai signs set moods for your message. For example, the Pierpont Inn sign is brightly illuminated and easy to read, and it says. “Welcome weary travelers. Come here to rest in quiet luxury!”

The Ojai monument sign design includes a beautiful stone structure that welcomes everyone to the city. It says so much more than a simple road sign with the population listed. This sign lets you know that Ojai is not a common, ordinary city in Ventura County and visitors will want to explore all of its great things to do and see.

Hand Painted Signage

The sign for Toppers Pizza was hand painted to give it a unique and personal appearance. Notice how the tomatoes become part of the wall and surroundings. The sign blends in perfectly and at the same time, let’s you know there is something special about this place. Hand painting is an art that many sign companies don’t practice anymore, but it still has a place in the business world, as you can see.

Unforgettable Entry

Take Maximum Advantage of Your Storefront Windows

Many storefront windows are relatively plain and just let in light. Check out America’s Best window, and you’ll see a live billboard that is full of special offers and important information for those shopping for contacts and eyeglasses. It’s like blowing up a weekly circular and superimposing it onto glass.
