5 Top Commercial Sign Trends for 2020

Eye-catching professional signs attract customers and give you the edge you need. For organizations in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles Counties, that usually means fresh takes on the interior and exterior signage. Sign trends include anything from contemporary accents on monument signs, to keeping with the new normal through vivid, communicative signage.

To check out your options, here are five top commercial sign trends for 2020.

Sign Trend #1:  Uniquely Styled Monuments

Sign Trends and Designs

A monument sign is an excellent way to welcome new customers or provide directions to existing ones. Like a Cabazon dinosaur, they draw your eye to them in a flash! Current trends include using sleek, contemporary freestanding monuments. This style of sign refreshes your visual identity and helps you rebrand. Freestanding monument signage stands out prominently on your topography, while still blending in naturally with your landscaping.

Sign Trend # 2: Illuminated Channel Letters

Custom Sign Design

Whereas current monument sign trends focus on refreshing and rebranding, channel letters drive your company’s name home. With this in mind, channel letter signs use your specialized font to make your brand instantly recognizable. Reverse channel lettering design is particularly in demand for 2020. Their halo effect makes them the darling of healthcare providers since they give an impactful and classy appearance to offices.

Sign Trend #3: Wayfinding Signs

Office ADA Signs

Who nowadays wants to waste precious time searching? Certainly not us. To that end, uncertain times in 2020 call for signs with a purpose. Dave’s Signs answers that call with anything from COVID-19 direction and regulatory signs to informational signage. The current trend consists of signs that assist in getting you safely where you’re going. Additionally, our wayfinding signs are both beautiful and functional. They’re your wingman.

Sign Trend # 4: Wood Decorated Signs

Wood decorated signs can achieve a wide array of visual effects. Their appearance runs the gamut from metropolitan sophistication to small-town vibe. Moreover, sandblasted wood signs are in vogue now, and you often see them adorning Southern California beach locales.

Sign Trend # 5: Window Signs

Last, but not least are window signs. They are some attention-grabbers, too. Our window graphics and text pop, and they can turn your windows and doors into an effective sales pitch. Hot designs for window sign graphics include bright, multi-colored icons. Also, minimalist line drawings that make glass look like a chalkboard are making their rounds.

5 Window Signage Ideas

For any business that has a big window, you will have a unique way of showcasing who you are and what you do. You can even offer sales and discounts on your storefront if you decide to go with custom designed signs for your windows. Just what type of window graphic signs could you choose? The ideas are really endless depending on what you have to offer. However, for those who would like to learn more, we have several window signage ideas to consider.

Window Signage Ideas

Your Logo

Showcase your logo on these windows so that your location is hard to miss. After all, you can’t attract business if customers can’t find you.

Graphics that showcase the feel. For example, TheTradeDesk in Ventura shows the Ventura Pier on the conference doors. It is a fun way to attract attention and give that local feel of being in Ventura.

Window Signage Ideas


You can opt for promotional signs that really give notice of what you have to offer. Here is America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses ad for 2 Pairs for $69.95 with Eye Exam. Everyone that drives by sees it. If you need new glasses, you immediately know where the deal is.

Make these colorful and in line with your brand colors that match your business.


A list of services printed on the window next to the front door is a great way to let everyone know what you do. For example, a salon can have a printed list of services including cuts, coloring, and other services so people know what they can get when they come into your business.
