3 Types of Hanging Signs that Attract Foot Traffic

Unlike signs that can be seen from far away, Hanging Signs are made to attract the eye of people walking nearby. In a similar fashion, they motivate these potential customers to come in and find out more about what your business offers. What follows is a guide to 3 types of Hanging Signs that attract foot traffic to your business.

#1: Blade Signs

If you want to boost visual interest, Blade Signs do the job splendidly. They are double-sided, hang perpendicular to your building, and are affixed to its structure. Blade Signs also face forward, so passersby can get a good look at them and easily read their detail as they come and go. Since these Hanging Signs don’t need to be optimized for motorists driving by, there is a ton of room for customization. You’ll find plenty of graphics, subtexts,  fancy fonts, and rich colors & textures on Blade Signs.

Wooden Blade Sign

If you look at Mondos’ logo on the Blade Sign, you’ll see that it gives homage to surfers and other ocean-based activities Ventura beaches offer. Meanwhile, the wooden font lets diners know they have tacos and brewskies inside. Put it all together, and the design gives a subtle nod that what’s inside the restaurant is definitely worth your time.

Illuminated Blade Signs

Hanging Signs are often much smaller than other types of commercial signage. To make up for their small stature, they have to project confidence in every way. Illumination can help with this, and this sleek projection below will promote your brand 24/7.

#2: Classic Hanging Signs

Classic hanging signs welcome customers into your business.  You may see dozens of them hung in downtown California streets. This popular type of sign typically hangs on chains and sways in the wind.

#3: Hanging Sign Combo

Combining an eye-catching Hanging Sign with other types of signs gives you the best of both worlds. For instance, pedestrians coming and going will appreciate the detail we created for Gandolfo’s New York Delicatessen Blade Sign. On the other hand, motorists passing at a high rate of speed don’t need to see the subtlety in the intricate design that characterizes Hanging Signs.

This bold-colored Channel Letter Sign is extremely visible from far away, which functions very well for motorists. Both signs also work together to elevate the Gandolfo brand.
