Having your own sign is a smart move when running your own business. Here are the top 5 businesses that would benefit from custom signage:

  • Retail Stores - Retail stores are filled with printed signs both inside and out, all of which aid the customer in purchasing something, getting around and informing them of something. These signs are much more influential over consumers than we may think, and 79% of Americans will remember a company based on their sign.

  • Restaurants - When walking into a successful restaurant, it’s very likely that there are signs all over the place. Restaurant signs will highly-differ from those used for retail and will often showcase food and a list of specials. Restaurants will often use striking signs to create an ambiance that'll attract new customers.

  • Bars - Adhesive vinyl in vibrant neo colors can be used at your bar or pub to create a certain atmosphere that attracts customers. Sports clubs, for instance, could use adhesive vinyl featuring a sport related theme in order to enhance the decor. Overall, creative bar signage increases your opportunity to have more customers on a daily basis.

Being effective, realtors rely on cleverly-designed signs to showcase new properties, attract home buyers and build brand awareness. As this tool has multiple uses, more and more realtors are relying on it to boost business.

Tips to Sign Effectiveness

Eye-catching signs with vivid graphics, bright colors, a simple design and a clear message will get great results. These four must-follow tips will make your sign stand out among the crowd:
