When it comes to designing effective signage, there’s more to it than meets the eye. Whether an owner is up against town regulations, a difficult plot of land or financial limitations, the most important aspect of choosing signage for a site is having an understanding of the following principles:
Functions of Signage:
Signs communicate and interact with a mobile, literate society. Good signage provides convenience and can improve marginal sites. Better signage identifies your business and works as an image builder.
Types of Signs:
The type of sign has a direct impact on the marketing strategy of a business. A business person can choose from a variety of interior and exterior sign structures: roof signs, projecting signs, wall signs, individual letters, free-standing signs (low profile-monument, pylon signs with or without tenant panels, pole signs) sign structures can include manual change copy signs, electronic time, temperature and message signs, and awnings. Signs can be illuminated internally, externally, or not at all. Non-illuminated signage include: all types of signs pertaining to ADA regulation, banners, vehicle and window lettering and even being able to "print" detailed logos and copy directly to vinyl. Sign materials include aluminum, steel, plastic, glass, fabrics, and wood, with many variations of composite materials of those listed above.
Placement of Signage:
Signs should be placed in areas leading to the most impact for your business. The area in which a sign can be installed should be inspected for obstructions (building supports and overhead/underground utilities), access, existing structures and power requirements. Local building codes as well as landlord standards should be considered.
