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.

Creating A Design For Your Custom Vinyl Banner

There are many instances where a vinyl banner can be a useful tool for marketing. While vinyl banners can be among the more basic tools for marketing a business or service, it is common for people to make mistakes when they are creating a design for their new vinyl banner.

Font Size And Text Color  

Whenever you are in the process of designing a new vinyl banner, it is useful to have the sign's readability be a priority. In this regard, the size of the font and the color of the text will be two of the most important factors in determining the ability of individuals to read these signs when they are a fair or far distance from them. Depending on the size of the banner that you are having made, this may require you to shorten the message or abbreviate some of the words.

The Anchor Points For the Vinyl Banner

The vinyl banner sign will need to be hung in order to be displayed. To allow for this to be done, these signs are likely to have metal rings in them to serve as anchor points. If you are planning to display this sign outsides, you may want to choose a design that has more anchor points than you may have originally suspected the sign would need. This will reduce the likelihood of the sign failing during strong winds as the numerous anchor points can better distribute the force that the wind hitting the sign is generating. When placing the sign, any rope or chain that is used to secure it should be tight enough to avoid rubbing against the vinyl as this could create weak points that may be more prone to failing.

The Impacts That Images Or Graphics Have On The Sign's Readability

Individuals will often want to incorporate signs and graphics into their vinyl banners. This can be a useful option for making the sign more eye-catching to those walking by it. However, it can also have the potential to make the sign more difficult for people to read. In order to counter t hs, you should carefully balance the colors of the text against the colors in the images or graphics that you are wanting to use with the sign. Reviewing a preview of the potential design that you are thinking of using can give you an opportunity to assess whether there is enough contrast between these colors to allow individuals to read these signs even when they are at a reasonably far distance from them.
