Commercial Exterior Signs

Outdoor signs are the first type of sign that people think of when they think of signs. When considering an outdoor sign it’s important to keep in mind what you want to achieve with the sign.

The location of your business will determine the type of sign that winll work best for you. The signage need of businesses i downtown areas is different than those located in a residential area or business complex. If your business is hidden from the road or in a residential area you may want to consider a ground sign. Whereas; if your business is part of a multi-business complex or plaza, using a pylon sign is the best solution. If you are located in a busy downtown core or shopping mall, a hanging blade sign will work well for you.  These signs have a wide variety of options and can be made out of many different types of materials.

Other types of outdoor signs available include sidewalk signs, lawn signs, banners, residential signs, parking signs and more. Each of these has its own specialized use. There is a sign type for every type of need that you may have.

Are you trying to bring attention to particular areas of your business? In these situations, interior signage becomes important to achieving these goals.

Just like outdoor signs, interior signs are also available in a wide variety of styles and types. Each of these is best suited to your needs. If you want to highlight your brand and image upon entering your business, a reception sign will definitely meet this need. Or maybe you want to promote a sale or special event?
