What should a business sign have on it?

What you should have on you signs depends on the type of sign and the purpose it serves.

For example, often your company name on your main fascia sign is enough. Although a short and concise slogan or tag line could work too. The less you put onto your sign, the larger the font can be for the most important information – which is often key in good signage design. This is equally true for other types of signs such as projecting signs.

For pavement signs and a-boards, you may want to include information about products, seasonal promotions or special offers. You’ll want to keep messaging concise and easy to read at a glance to increase chances of it being seen by passers-by.

Directional signage serves a slightly different purpose and should help people easily navigate to where they need to be – whether that’s directing people to the car park, reception, loading bay, entrance, exit, etc. This type of external signage needs to be large enough for people to see if from a distance and simple to read. Your company logo and arrows pointing to key locations works well.

What material is best for outdoor signs?

Exterior business signage can be made from a wide range of materials depending on the desired aesthetic as well as the size and shape of the sign, and your budget. The most popular materials for outdoor signage are powder coated aluminum, aluminum composite (often referred to as Dibond) and acrylic. Other materials that can also be used include brushed stainless steel, polished chrome and brass. Our expert team will help you select an option that’s right for you.
