Classic signs of all types are making a very big comeback across the country, especially in areas where there is an effort by local businesses and planners to create a more rustic look or more of a “town square” feel to the building, property or area.
At Dave’s Signs, we have seen this increasing trend in customers looking for blade signs to use outside of their business or office. The classic blade sign can be either vertical or horizontal in orientation and they are characterized by their visibility. They are designed to hang over an entrance or to be used on a pole in front of the store, restaurant or building. They provide a highly visible and obvious sign for a company, standing out from the background.
The use of blade signs is not new. In fact, as early as the 14th century, these were the go-to type of sign used for business. They are often mounted on an ornate bracket that protrudes from the building or from a pole in front of the building, providing clear direction for pedestrians or those looking for a business.
The new styles of these types of signs are very different from the original carved or painted on signs. New technology allows for lighting and illumination on lettering and features of the sign, creating a highly visible sign that is perfect for traffic walking or driving by in the day as well as in the evening.
While these signs may be very traditional, there is no need to stay to just the basics. With the styles ranging from an over the longitudinal door type of sign to a sign that juts out over the sidewalk, we offer everything.
Adding special features to the sign such as a graphic, images and illumination can make a basic blade sign really stand out. However, it is the look 24/7 that makes these the go-to sign option for any business.
Orientation and Design Elements
At Dave’s Signs, our goal is to create the right sign for our customers. We spend time talking to you about what you’d like to see on the sign. For some of our customers is it is just the name of the business, while for others it will be the name and a stylized graphic or image.
Regardless of what is needed with blade signs, we are here to create the perfect look. From the design to the installation, our team will make your business stand out in ways that add to your marketing options.
