The Advantages of Blade Signs

Blade signs are types of signs that are usually mounted perpendicular on the wall of a building. These signs help to point pedestrians and other visitors in the direction of your store.

Blade Sign

This eye-grabber (like the sign one above) is designed specifically to attract foot traffic and with blade signs, you cannot go wrong. These signs can add some uniqueness and spark to your brand. Traditionally, blade signs were carved out of wooden planks and coated with bright colors of paint. With time, these planks have been changed to reflect a high-tech feel with flashy designs and colors. There are a few options that you can consider. Some of them are mentioned below.

Sandblasted Panel Signs

These are made when high-density urethane (HDU) boards are sandblasted to show the style, details and the 3D lettering that you have chosen. Once this is done, they paint and seal it, making it ready for display. These types of panel signs are durable and long lasting, perfect for the outdoors.  Check out the one below and talk to one of our sign technicians today for more ideas.

Box Cabinet Signs

Custom-formed lightbox cabinets can light up the front of your store. This sign features an imprinted vinyl overlay or dimensional letters at the front. You can make it dual faced as well. The advantage of doing this is to make it attractive to people on both sides of the sign.

Three Custom Outdoor Business Designs to Consider

Signs are expressions of businesses. They are the first source of information customers use to gain insight about a business. A sign doesn’t say much, but it provides a visual attraction to potential customers.

Everything from the font to the choice of color plays a part in getting your message across to your target market. It not only decorates the building but also helps create an impression. Many brick and mortar businesses rely on outdoor signs to catch people’s attention.

Creating your first custom outdoor business design could be difficult. You may not be aware of the many types of signs that exist, or which of them are best suited for your business.

To help you, here are three custom outdoor designs to consider.

Illuminated Signs

We have all seen glowing signs that light up during the night – it adds a vibrant flavor to your outdoor business sign.

Illuminated signs light up during the night, and stay off during the day, which make them a cheaper alternative to backlit signs. However, they require maintenance. LEDs are cheaper than traditional bulbs, but they do cost money. Therefore, it is recommended to find sign makers who provide high-quality solutions.

Monument Signs

These signs carry a low profile. They get installed on the ground at entrances. Materials used to build monument signs range from brick, steel, concrete, wood, or acrylic.

Ideal installation venues include entrances of apartments, business complexes, parks, and more. It may contain a list of tenants/businesses that reside in the complex. For example, a monument sign for a hospital that lists all the facilities available in the building.

Blade Signs

Ever walked down a sidewalk and saw a sign extending from a wall? That’s a blade sign. In a nutshell, blade signs take up relatively less space. They’re installed perpendicular to the flow of traffic on sidewalks to help pedestrians locate a business. It is ideal for shops in malls and restaurants in a public space with a lot of other restaurants.
