Design, Color, and More: A Sign Blog

Businesses need signs from before they open until the day they close. At the beginning, you may need signs that advertise your business location such as arrows or lit up signs with your logo and store name. While owning your store, you may want signs that tell customers how to behave such as "don't bring ice cream into the shop" or "no shirt, no shoes, no service". You may want signs for special sales or for unique products, and you may even need signs for off-site marketing events such as trade shows. Then, at the end, you may need a sign that says "going out of business". Regardless of where you are in your business journey, this blog is designed to help you choose the best signs for your business.

Learn How To Have A Great Sign Created For Your Upcoming Fundraiser

When you have a large fundraiser happening in the near future, it is important to get the word out in the community ahead of time, to ensure as many people as possible come to support the event. In order to advertise the event for an affordable price, consider having a large custom sign created, to display in the community. The following guide walks you through the steps to ensure that the sign you have created can be as useful as possible.

Ensure the Sign Is Made for Outdoor Use

When you go to have the sign designed, you need to let the manufacturer know that you plan to use the sign outdoors. This will ensure that the sign is created using materials that are designed to be able to stand up to the elements. You do not want to use a sign that is designed for indoor use outdoors, because it can become faded or smeared, when exposed to the elements.

Ensure You Know How Large You Want the Sign to Be

Reach out to your local zoning department to find out what the restrictions are regarding hanging signage in the community. There will be restrictions on the size the sign can be and where it can be displayed. If you have a sign made that does not meet these restrictions, it will serve as a waste of money.

Determine How You Want the Sign to be Displayed

You need to consider how you want the sign displayed. Do you want to tie a banner to a few posts, or if you would rather have a sign created that can stand on its own? If you do not want to deal with the hassle of having to drive poles into the ground, a freestanding sign may be your best option. The only problem with the freestanding sign is you will need to weigh down the base, to ensure it does not easily blow over in the wind.

It is best to have the sign created a month or two before your fundraiser. This will allow you to display it long before the fundraiser is set to take place, to ensure that as many people as possible get to see it and find out about the event. Be sure the sign has contact information on it, so people from the community can contact you, if needed.
