Enhancing your Columbus business with tailored design and installation.
Did you know that one of the first (and most important) signs that a company can invest in is their building or shop front sign? Exterior signage, and commercial signage in general, can be much more effective than you may think! If you want to increase your customer base and your revenue, professional and eye-catching commercial signs can do just that.
A compelling sign can be a magnet for your audience’s attention, offering them a clear view of your brand’s identity and pulling them towards your business. When crafted right, this sign can imprint on their minds, prompting them to spread the word about your brand and effectively acting as a word-of-mouth ad campaign. Be it banners, car decals, or other promotional tools to elevate your presence, the world of commercial signage awaits you.
In the world of business, many tasks demand your attention. While you’ve perfected daily operations and financial strategies, you might be surprised to realize the importance of signage on your to-do list.
Signage in the commercial realm spans a wide range – from outside banners to inside decor, from static posts to mobile advertisements, and everything in between. If someone’s searching for signs for a business, a government building, or any commercial setting, signs guide and inform. Ensuring accurate and effective signage is key!
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.
The world of commercial signage doesn’t offer a generic, all-encompassing solution for each business. Based on your company’s nature and the message you aim to project, graphic designers meticulously design signs that clearly articulate your intent, making it clear for potential customers.
Want your brand to shine bright? Signage that’s illuminated is your answer, especially in conditions where natural light is scarce or during nighttime. It attracts attention and uses a combination of lighting solutions – LEDs, neon, and fluorescents – to guarantee continuous advertising for storefronts and other low-visibility spots.
Non-illuminated signage doesn’t contain any lighting elements, so it relies on natural light or reflected light for visibility. This is often a good option for conveying messages that only need to be seen during the day. They’re also typically more cost-effective than other types of signage.
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.
Also referred to as 3D signage or raised letter displays, dimensional signage stands out due to its three-dimensional nature. It brings depth and texture to the standard flat signs, delivering a striking visual appeal. With its refined and polished look, it’s a popular choice for storefronts, building facades, and various business interiors.
Knowing where you need to go is one thing, but in a new area, this can be easier said than done. Way-finding signage helps by providing clear directions to places inside and out. It’s often seen in airports, hospitals, shopping centers, and schools, while also assisting outside by directing people to tourist attractions, public transport stations, and so on.
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.
Aiming to serve individuals with visual limitations, ADA signage embeds Braille for a dual reading experience—visual and touch-based. You’ll frequently spot these in public facilities like schools, healthcare centers, and libraries, but they’re equally prevalent in transportation zones, lodging establishments, and a multitude of business environments.

A well-designed logo can make all the difference when it comes to business branding. Ensuring your logo represents your business’ values and interests is paramount, as it shows customers exactly who you are and what you do. With this, your brand will be easily recognized and its identity cemented.
For a brand, its character, tone, values, and unique benefits become visible through effective branding. Navigating the competitive landscape can be challenging, yet standout branding can attract onlookers to a company’s sign and draw them in, paving the way for prospective business. Aligning the brand’s identity with the signage distinguishes it from the competition.
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.
