Our Custom Signs in the Santa Clarita Valley

On this local service area page, we’ve showcased some of our favorite Santa Clarita, California signs, including ones we designed, made, and installed.

We’ll also share details about each sign type, the services we provided, and information about the businesses they represent.

Let’s get started!

The Valencia Marketplace Monument Sign

Monument signs like the one we made for Valencia Marketplace are the gold standard for shopping centers. They allow tenants to change or update their names without replacing the whole sign. 

It’s essential to design them to complement the mall’s architectural feel.

Finneys Crafthouse Signs in Stevenson Ranch

Finney’s Crafthouse is a family-owned American tavern chain specializing in craft beer and made-from-scratch globally-inspired cuisine. 

After helping them develop sign programs for 11 locations from San Luis Obispo to Laguna Beach, we were excited to hear they are opening a new location in Stevenson Ranch.

Each Finney’s location has signs with specific needs. 

Make a lasting impression with sign solutions for your business like we did for Finney's Crafthouse.

Since their Stevenson Ranch location is in a shopping mall, it must be seen from a distance. We used channel letters so the business name would stand out day or night.

We installed channel letter signs outdoors on three sides. 

Channel letters, especially red, are some of the best attention-getting signs out there for drive up shopping malls.

We added barn lighting to the sign facing the parking lot, which gives it an extra flare when you walk up.

To give the building a more custom feel, we added a hand-painted “F logo” sign in the top corner, as seen from the parking lot.

Outdoor signs, such as hand-painted graphics on brick, add polish and evoke a nostalgic feeling about a former era.

Inside the restaurant, there is a neon sign with the tagline “Craft Beer Spoken Here” and several hand-painted signs. This sign is in all their restaurants.

There is also a black “F logo” graphic above the bar, only at the Stevenson Ranch location.

Custom signs like this neon sign create a sense of place in all Finney's Crafthouse locations.

Custom outdoor building signs are one of the most important marketing tools for businesses.

Signs can also be used to create a sense of brand visibility, helping to build customer loyalty.

In addition, custom exterior signs can help you to stand out from your competition and make your business more visible in the community. Outdoor signs play an essential role in the success of any business. If you are not using building signs to promote your business, you are missing out on a powerful marketing tool.

The different types of building signs available

There are a variety of building signs available to suit the needs of any business. Here are a few of the most popular.

Blade Signs

Building Signs – Midici Wood Fired Pizza illuminated lightbox blade sign in downtown Ventura, CA. Easy to see for passersby.

Blade signs are a popular choice for many businesses, as they are highly visible and can be mounted on a building’s wall or eave. These signs are also called projecting signs, hanging signs, and flat panel signs. They are ideal for strip malls, downtown businesses, and areas with high pedestrian traffic.

If your business has a sidewalk in front, installing a blade sign is an excellent way to increase foot traffic and boost sales. They also make it easier to see when driving by because the viewer can see the sign looking forward without having to turn their head.

Dimensional Letters

Building Signs – Motion Industries dimensional letter sign in Oxnard, CA.

Dimensional letters are also quite popular, as they give a building’s facade depth and dimension. Dimensional letter signs use three-dimensional lettering or a custom logo (as opposed to flat panels).

Metal letters, plastic cut letters, or 3-D graphics are also known as dimensional letter signs. They’re not only appealing and weather resistant but also cost-effective, making them a great choice for anybody looking to have a high-quality sign on a tighter budget. When paired with spotlights, they look fantastic, ensuring that the sign is seen at night and during the evening hours.

Illuminated Signs

Channel Letters

Channel letters are another popular option for outdoor signs, as they can be custom-sized to fit any space and are illuminated for greater visibility.

Channel letters are three-dimensional illuminated letters and graphics that are often seen on stores at shopping centers, restaurants, specialty stores, and pretty much every type of business location. They’re an excellent way to identify your business. By forming each letter separately and giving it its own light source, you create an effect that is sure to impress potential customers.

Monument signs are a type of signage that is freestanding and usually located at the entrance of a business park, shopping mall, hotel, restaurant, or residential community, like an apartment complex.

This type of outdoor sign is often made out of stone, brick, or concrete to give them a more permanent look.

For businesses, monument signs can be an excellent way to advertise your company name and logo to customers driving or walking by. Most often, these are lighted signs using many forms, including channel letters, dimensional letters, and lightbox signs – shopping malls with individual business names added, for example.

Monument signs are also commonly used in parks and other public spaces to help visitors find their way around.

In addition to their practical purposes, monument signs can also be used to add aesthetic appeal to a property. Well-designed monument signs can be eye-catching and make a positive first impression on visitors.

If you are looking for a way to improve the visibility and curb appeal of your business or public space, a monument sign may be the ideal solution.

Pylon Signs

Pylon signs, aka pole signs, are a type of freestanding business sign that is often used for advertising businesses or promoting special events. Pylon signs are usually tall and thin, with a large base that helps to stabilize the structure. The height of pylon signs makes them highly visible from a distance, which is ideal for getting the attention of potential customers or passersby.

Pylon signs can be lit from within, making them visible even at night or in low-light conditions. Additionally, pylon signs are often double-sided so that they can be seen from both directions on a busy street.

Pylon signs are a versatile and effective way to get your message out, and they can be customized to fit your specific needs.

Typically, pylon signs can be updated using an existing structure when a new business moves in or is looking to update its outdoor signs.

Wayfinding Signs

Wayfinding signs are invaluable tools for helping people navigate their way around unfamiliar places. By providing clear and concise directions, wayfinding signs can help people to avoid getting lost or disoriented.

These directional signs can be found in a variety of settings, including shopping malls, office buildings, hospitals, and airports. In many cases, these informational signs are designed to blend in with their surroundings, making them easy to miss if you’re not looking for them. However, their simple design can often be misleading, as their straightforward appearance can disguise the complex task of navigation they perform.

Wayfinding signs may not always be the most exciting things to look at, but they play a vital role in helping us get to where we want to go.

When it comes to promoting your business, exterior signs are an important investment. Not only do they help customers find your location, but they also create a first impression of your brand. With so many different types of exterior signage available, it can be difficult to know which one is right for your business. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing exterior signs:

First, consider the location of your sign

Will it be visible from the street? Is it in a high-traffic area? The placement of your sign will impact its effectiveness, so be sure to choose a location that will maximize visibility.

Second, think about the type of sign that will best match your brand identity

Third, don’t forget to consider your budget

Building signs come in a wide range of prices, so it’s important to set a realistic budget before you start shopping. By taking the time to consider all of these factors, you can be sure to choose the right exterior sign for your business.

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.

Real Estate Development Signs That Market Your Business Effectively

Giving your real estate development a professional look is paramount to making a lasting impact.  And having high quality, professional signs throughout your development provides that lasting impact. Likewise, the best signage projects a professional environment. To function optimally, these visuals need to be easily read, visually appealing and informative.

Professional Signage has Serious Marketing Mojo

Besides providing a brilliant first impression, professional signage solutions are majorly employed for marketing and advertisement. For instance, the value of on-site real estate development signage is the equivalent of running 24 full-page newspaper ads annually.

Comparatively, 10 percent of people surveyed discovered the home they bought from a real estate sign. In a similar vein, this type of effective signage is excellent for building brand awareness. While all this is true, commercial real estate development signs bring other benefits to the table.

Other Benefits of Real Estate Development Signs

It is important that real estate development signs build interest and help curious passersby find their way by showcasing the new property in the best light. Similarly, attractive themes and recognizable styles on signage create a comforting sense of belonging.

Therefore, the right signage next to construction and finished sites create highly visual, eye-catching designs that attract and compel potential homeowners to find out more about your housing development.
