In a world of Google Maps and GPS, you may not think directional signs are all that important any more. But that would be wrong because good signage is still one of the most predominant ways that people find their way around. Consider a university campus with multiple buildings and parking lots – or a large scale festival or event where people need to find their way around. Directional signs are the simplest and best solution.
Directional signs can be made of wood or aluminum. They are a must in places where people get lost trying to find something. Design for these signs must clear and easy to read from a distance. While brand may still be important, it takes a back seat to helping your customers find what they are looking for.
Our outdoor signs are made out of aluminum, the same material as traffic signs and won’t rust with the elements. They are great for parking control and directing traffic, such as the image of the fire route sign used by the town of Oakville below. Many business use outdoor aluminum signs to regulate and reserve customer parking, such as mobility plus chiropractor sign below. You will often see pizzerias use parking signs to reserve a spot for people who are picking up pizzas.
Whatever you use your outdoor sign for, you will want to make sure that it can withstand the elements and gives clear instruction or information to your customers. Since these signs may be your first point of contact with the customer, they should look professional and provide concise and easy to understand communication.
