Improve your Akron business through personalized design and installation.
Have you ever considered that one of the initial (and crucial) investments a business can make is in their building or shop front signage? Exterior signs, including commercial ones, are often more important than you might believe! If the aim is to expand your clientele and boost your profits, expertly crafted and appealing commercial signs can make it happen.
Having an eye-catching sign can attract the attention of your customers, clearly showing them who you are and enticing them to come and interact with your business. The right sign and its custom design will leave a lasting impression, helping people to remember your brand and recommend it to others, effectively doing your advertising for you! Whether you’re interested in exterior signage, vehicle wraps, or anything in between to increase your visibility, commercial signage is for you.
If you have a business, you know how crucial certain aspects of it are. You have all your ducks in a row when it comes to what you do day-to-day and how the finances are managed, both of which are incredibly important! What you may not have known, however, is how high signage is on the must-haves list.
From outdoor displays to interior branding, from stationary plaques to mobile signs, commercial signage is diverse. For businesses, governmental agencies, or any other commercial entity, these signs indicate their location and purpose. Hence, it’s imperative to get the signage just right.
Take monument signs as an example: their size and placement are crucial to showcase a business’s whereabouts, offerings, and services, guiding traffic aptly. On the other hand, vehicle wraps act as moving billboards, demanding a different design approach. Customization in signage is vital for stand-out promotions and can be pivotal for a company’s growth.
Commercial signage is far from a catch-all, one-size-fits-all approach for every business. Depending on what your company does and the message you want to convey, graphic designers work on creating exactly what you want to communicate with your signage so that visitors know exactly what they’ll be getting.
Aiming for a luminous statement? Signage with illumination stands out in dimly lit environments, be it nighttime or locales lacking ample daylight, effectively catching the eye. Such signage employs an array of lighting methods, from LEDs to neon and fluorescent lights, promising round-the-clock promotion especially in places where nighttime visibility is compromised.
Non-lit signage, as the name suggests, lacks lighting fixtures and thus depends on either sunlight or light reflection for clarity. Such signs are ideal for daytime communication and are generally more economical than other signage varieties.
LED (light-emitting diodes) signs are bright and colorful and are used both indoors and outdoors. LEDs can be used to display images as well as text, making them eye catching any time of day or night. LED signage is typically energy efficient and eco-friendly, so it leaves a lasting impression in all the best ways.
Dimensional signs, often recognized as 3D or raised letter boards, transform the usual flat signage by adding layers and depth. Their visual allure is pronounced, lending a refined and adept appearance, commonly seen gracing storefronts, outer building walls, and business interiors of all sorts.
Understanding your desired location is just half the battle when you’re in a new space. That’s where way-finding signage comes in handy, giving unequivocal guidance for indoor and outdoor sites. You’ll spot them in settings like airports, healthcare centers, shopping plazas, and academic buildings, and they’re equally useful outdoors pointing to tourist highlights and transit stations, among others.
As visually striking as they are resilient, monumental signs boast an architectural flair, blending seamlessly with their surroundings for an enhanced sense of presence. Such signs frequently grace the entryways of gated communities, commercial complexes, educational institutions, official buildings, and various landmarks.
ADA signs are crafted to guide those with visual impairments, ensuring their mobility is safe and intuitive. Integrating Braille is a key feature, allowing the signage to be accessible both visually and tactilely. Public spaces such as schools, hospitals, and reading hubs, as well as transport junctions, hospitality centers, and several commercial areas, prominently display these.
In Akron, Signworks presents a complete suite of commercial signage services, starting with logo design and graphic creation, all the way to installation assistance.
The power of a well-crafted logo in branding cannot be understated. It’s vital to ensure it mirrors the ethos and offerings of your business, offering a clear profile to your customers. This ensures your logo fortifies brand recognition and solidifies brand identity.
Branding that hits the mark communicates a brand’s identity, voice, core beliefs, and distinct value. Amidst fierce competition, stellar branding is a beacon, attracting attention to a business sign and inviting customers, bringing in possible earnings. A sign that mirrors the brand’s persona differentiates it in a crowded market.
To ensure that signs are set up legally, signage permitting aligns with local rules and zoning laws. The procedure entails groundwork, liaison with officials, application for the sign permit, followed by evaluation and endorsement. Sometimes, tweaks and another round of submission might be required. It’s imperative to secure the needed approvals prior to installing any signs.
