Design Tips for Effective Outdoor Signage

What exactly makes a sign effective? Follow these clever tips for dynamic outdoor signage:

  • Brand Consistency - Your signage should reinforce your business' brand identity.
  • Type Style Considerations - We recommend emphasizing keywords with strong font styles and big letters.
  • Capitalization - Use title case for the content of your sign. Those done in all capital letters are hard to read.
  • Color Contrast - Pick colors that are consistent with other branding efforts. They should also complement the background color of the sign.
  • Focal Point - We all tend to read top to bottom and left to right. Place the focal point on the upper left of the sign.
  • Avoid obstructions - It's crucial that customers and potential customers have a clear line of sight to your sign.
  • Lighting Considerations - Whether or not the sign will be lit should be considered when it comes to placement. Lighting is essential for those businesses that are open at night.

Fun Facts

Ever wondered where signs and banners originated? Wonder no more! They've been around since ancient times. These facts will amaze you!

  • Did You Know some of the earliest signs were used to denote the membership of a specific group? Early Christians used a sign showcasing a cross in order to denote their religious affiliations, whereas pagan banners featured the sun or the moon.
  • Did You Know the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans were also known to use signage? In ancient Rome, banners were used to announce public events as well as for store fronts.
  • Did You Know English law compelled landlords and innkeepers to exhibit signs in the 14th century? These were intended to make public houses visible to passing inspectors regarding the quality of the ale offered. Wow! Signs have certainly evolved through the ages!
