How to Elevate Your Business with Dimensional Letter Signs

First impressions matter when it comes to your business. So, if you want to give a brilliant first impression, Dimensional Letter Signs will do the trick. This post discusses what they are and the ways in which they can elevate your business.

What is a Dimensional Letter Sign?

Dimensional Letter Signs are an extremely popular choice of signage. One of the things that make them so appealing is that you perceive them as solid instead of flat. Their innovative design makes the letters seem to float in the air. This illusion gives them their distinctive 3D effect.

The letters in Dimensional Signs are fabricated from materials such as acrylic, metal or plastic, which are mounted individually to the wall or a frame. These 3-D signs work well for both the exterior or interior of a building and they can come in lighted or unlighted options.

Dimensional Sign Letters Help You Stand Out

Flat signs do the job in some circumstances. However, in downtown areas and shopping plazas, drivers and pedestrians are constantly inundated with run-of-the-mill signs.

The key to beating out the competition is to grab the attention of your patrons immediately. Rest assured that the polished appearance of these special signs distinguishes your business from the rest.

Dimensional Letter Signs Advertise and Promote

Often, customers only visually engage with signs for a few moments. That gives them time enough to decide if they want to come in or pass your business by.

Also, an attention-getting message is critical. Meanwhile, the ones conveyed by Dimensional Lettering are one of the best (and not to mention the easiest) ways to advertise and promote your business.

Choose Metal for an Extremely Durable Option

Dimensional Letter Signs made of metal are extremely durable and long-lasting.  In short, they will stand up to all types of weather conditions.

4 Tips To Make Outdoor Signs Stand Out

For commercial outdoor signs to be successful, they need to grab your attention. People have to be able to see them from a distance, often driving by at high-speed. The design has to be eye-catching, especially when there are other signs in the area.

Here are four tips to make outdoor signs stand out from the crowd.

1. Make Designs Bright & Bold

Sometimes words aren’t enough. Try adding an image or logo to mix things up a little. Meanwhile, if you want to make your sign scream, “Look at me,” add some bold colors to both. For instance, the text and logo for the Mondos Beach Break sign are both vibrant and colorful. The design sparks curiosity and imagination of what’s inside.

2. Fonts Matter

There are many styles of fonts to choose from. But you have to be careful about which one you choose.  For instance, the font style that worked for Coca Cola doesn’t work for everyone. If fonts have serifs at the bottom and top of the text, it can all blend into a hot mess. Yolanda’s Mexican Cafe sign works well with this font style, but can you imagine if it was ensconced within a dental office sign? For the best results, the font must be visible, large, and professional in appearance. It also needs to adequately match your brand.

3. Outdoor Signs Only Need a Few Words

For outdoor signs to be truly effective, it’s best to minimize the word count. You want the message to be short and simple so customers can read it on the go. Too many words on a sign can lead to missed opportunities. Just like websites people scan, you need to get the point across right away. Don’t let customers pass you by because they aren’t sure what you have to offer. In this case, less is more!

4. Dimensional Signs

3.) Lighting for dimensional letters is done using external lights. If you want internally lit 3d signs, then you should check out channel letter signs.

What You Need to Know About Dimensional Letter Signs


Dimensional Letter Signs

As a business owner, you want to do everything possible to ensure that your business gets the visibility it needs. This is why you plan advertising strategies and launch digital marketing campaigns. But if you are a brick-and-mortar business, your business location itself needs to have some form of advertising in the form of signage.

But if you are looking for an impactful yet economical signage option, dimensional letter signs are the way to go. This is essentially any logo or lettering that has 3-dimensions.

Different Materials Used

Dimensional letter signs are logos or lettering typically made from aluminum or acrylic with a three-dimensional appearance. This lettering is normally lit from external lights either above or below the sign. Aside from aluminum and acrylic, you can choose from materials such as plastic, foam, steel, and wood. The foam material signs are exclusively for indoor settings. We recommend using acrylic instead of foam because foam is not very durable and won’t last nearly as long.

Regardless of the material you opt for, you can rest assured that the top-notch workmanship will be used in fabricating these dimensional letter signs. Our team typically recommends the use of half-inch acrylic material for the dimensional letters. These have mounts made of concealed studs. The final effect of these signs is outstanding and you get signs that are long-lasting and durable.


Cost-Effective Signage Solutions

Dimensional letter signs are economical and attractive and fit perfectly into modest budgets as well. We make sure that our customers get the best solutions at the most cost-effective pricing for their application. High-quality materials and the best workmanship help ensure that the signs will be not just attractive but extremely durable too.
