What Should a Business Sign Include?

As a business owner, you know that your outdoor sign is the first impression that your business makes. It is important to make a lasting first impression and provide the information needed to make potential customers choose your business over others. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what should be on your business sign, and why.

Your Main Business Sign: Simplicity Wins the Day

While your main business sign should be high impact, simplicity will win the day. Outdoor business signs should grab attention, provide the most important details, and be memorable. That is why your sign should have:

  • Your Business Name: Make your business name memorable with the perfect high impact sign.
  • Your Business Logo: Your logo is your best chance to remain in the memories of passers by.
  • Make sure your sign is readable from a considerable distance.
  • Optional: You can include your website address and/or phone number, however your main sign should be direct and to the point.

Options for your primary business sign include:

Find out information about cabinet signs and how they might be a fit for your business.

Cabinet signs: Also referred to as backlit signs, these electrically lighted signs shine light through a luminous panel.

Find information about channel letter sings and how they may be a fit for your business.

Channel letter signs: These are custom-made metal or plastic letters that are often illuminated internally. They are generally three-dimensional, creating depth as well as shining brightly.

  • Hours of operation
  • Website information
  • Contact information
  • Offers and calls to action
