Property Management Signs that Make Your Brand Shine

Excellent signage is part of what makes California scenery beautiful. A large part of that niche is property management signs, and you can find them peppered throughout where you live. These signs, however, have a three-fold purpose to be effective. First, the signs you have on the premise needs to attract renters. Second, they need to be compelling enough to make people want to find out more. Third, these signs need to build trust in your brand. After all,  these are potential clients and renters you typically want to build long-term relationships with.  To help with that, Dave’s Signs creates custom property management signs that make your brand shine.

Ahead, we’ve put together a few tips on what makes property management signs effective, while showcasing your brand:

Tip #1: Sign Consistency is Vital for First Impressions

With property management, just like in the rest of the business world, consistency is of vital importance. For example, you want leasees and visitors to your building to receive the same message every time. Especially when you schedule and display advertising and promotions.

This important message that visitors and occupants see, not only relates to your brand, but also to the elements of your products & services. This is why it’s essential to have consistency in your signage. Particularly if you are a large company with several branches and franchises.

Dave’s Signs understands the need for consistency throughout the building, and sometimes throughout the entire complex. As you can see in the following images, everything we did from the entryway monument sign to the directory sign, to the corporate building sign for our national customer, LiFETECH Resources, shouts out consistency.

In the preceding examples, the client lent a personal touch to their signs. Building on their concepts, our experts managed all processes to making the signage a reality. The results are coordinated, individual signs that really make their brand shine through.

Tip #2: Property Management Signs Must Have a Strong Presence

Monument signs are an excellent option if you are looking for a strong presence for your property management business. They create high street visibility and are the ultimate in wayfinding since they make your business easy to locate.  Take the architectural monument sign we created for the Residence Inn, Marriot. Since it is smartly done, it boosts exposure to their brand and strengthens their identity. An aspect that is incredibly important to a national hospitality company like them.

Tip #3: A Property Sign’s Appearance Must Match its Surroundings

A strategically designed sign can give you a one-of-a-kind and distinguished look that matches its surroundings. Dave’s Signs can customize your monument sign to reflect the appearance and essence of its surroundings.  In fact, we can replicate the unique architectural elements of your corresponding building. This service includes anything from material texture to its color palette.

Tip #4: Pick a Signmaker That Knows the Ropes

Lastly, you’ll want to choose a sign making company that knows the ropes of the business. For 20 years, Dave’s Signs has worked alongside contractors, property managers, landlords, and home owner’s associations.  We can design your property management sign to suit your needs. Meanwhile, we also make sure any sign we furnish you complies with local and state ordinances.  We would love to help you with your next project, and we invite you to explore our website and our beautiful signs in the galleries.

Dave’s Signs is a very well-established company in the signage space. We work with businesses of all shapes and sizes and cater to various other clients too. Our mall window graphic signs are a class apart and these are used on various commercial properties.

Mall Window Graphic Signs

One of our latest projects is at Junction at Wagon Wheel. This is a mixed-use community with housing, restaurants, and retail all in one location.

Over the years, we have built very strong business relationships with Oakwood Communities who is the developer of this brand new community in Oxnard. With this project, we have designed and fabricated various graphics, flags and signs to advertise their property.

Custom Mall Window Graphic Signs

We are a customer-centric company that focuses on providing solutions that meet the specific needs of our clients. With this particular development, the client wanted us to focus on “what could be”, rather than advertising for any specific establishment. The objective was to attract new residents and businesses. As part of this project, our team:

Mall Window Graphic Signs

  • Designed custom lifestyle graphics for Oakwood.
  • Planned and designed signs such as ‘Bakery’, ‘Deli’ and ‘Barber Shop’.
  • Focused on using concepts and themes that matched the business.
  • Created large format digital graphics to create a unified look at this location.


Mall Window Graphic Signs

  • Made sure that the same background color was used and that the company’s branding was incorporated into the signs we made. 
  • Helped to beautify the area to receive potential buyers to the sales office and hide the interior construction work.


High-Quality Vinyl Signage

These weren’t permanent signs and they were specifically designed and fitted in such a way that they could be easily removed once a new business moves into that space.

Mall Window Graphic Signs

Our team worked diligently and creatively, making sure that every door and window was accurately measured and then redrawn digitally. The custom-fit work involved the printing of more than 650 Sq. feet of vinyl.

The project was completed within the stipulated timeframe and budget and in tandem with other construction trades at the site. For any more information on our customized signs, contact us at (805) 641-1387 or simply send us your queries and project details via this Contact Us form.

Here’s Why You Should Update Your Apartment Signs

It can be easy to underestimate the influence of regular apartment signs in the world of internet marketing. This means apartment owners don’t often update their apartment signs when they should. At Dave’s Signs, we encourage property owners to upgrade their signs and ensure they look current. Here are some reasons why you should do it:

apartment signs

Visible to Passersby’s

Old and frayed signs often have missing pieces of information and aren’t very visible to passersby’s. This means you might miss an opportunity to attract a prospective buyer or tenant. Damaged or old signs can also make it difficult for visitors to find and identify your property easily. 

Good First Impression

When prospective tenants or buyers visit your property, you want to give them the best possible impression. Apartment signs are probably one of the first things they’ll see. If the signs are damaged, dated, or old, They might think the apartments are in that condition too. This can influence their buying decision.

Signs are an important aspect of branding. They display your logo and apartment information to everyone who sees it. Without proper branding, it can be difficult to attract tenants or buyers over an apartment complex that looks polished.

Most property owners invest a lot of time and effort to ensure their apartment building looks great. Aesthetics add value and attract more clients. It doesn’t make sense to beautify your entire property and not upgrade your apartment signs. Take the time to ensure your apartment sign looks great and is visible to people that are near your property.

What You Need To Know About Property Management Signs

If you are a property manager, you know exactly how important property management signs are for the success of your business. Just as the right kind of signage can help you succeed, a poorly designed sign system can have the exact opposite effect.

Check out this property management sign below we did for Brock Hills residential community. It’s clean, simple and gets the message across.

Property Management Signs

Here are Some Things You Need to Know About Property Management Signs:

1 – They Need to be Readable

Choose the font with care and make sure that the lettering is sufficiently large. Not everyone will have excellent eyesight, and it’s important to have a sign that can be easily seen from a distance. This is a crucial aspect of property management signs.

2 – Keep It Simple

Property management signs need to be clean and simple. For instance, if the sign is meant to direct people towards an office or restaurant, be direct and keep the message simple. The signs should maintain the look and feel of your brand, but don’t overdo it with clutter that can make the sign hard to follow. 

Here is a sign we did that does just that for The Pierpont Inn.

3 – Quality Matters

Because these signs are meant to be outdoors, the quality of your sign is of the utmost importance. They need to withstand the rain and changing weather patterns. With the right property management sign,  you can help to increase desire and add value to renters.

4 – Hire Professionals for Sign Design

Getting your property management signs to succeed is about hiring the right team. At Dave’s Signs, we have been designing, fabricating, installing and servicing property management signs for over 20+ years. We know exactly how to provide our clients the kind of property management signs they require.

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.
