 Using Store Front Signs For Business Boosts: Top-3 Buyer Tips

  • Choose a sign type that builds your brand. Every sign type tells a different story, so it’s important to pick one that serves your brand image. For instance, wooden signs or signs that appear to made of wood are best for businesses aiming for a vintage look, while metal logos and lettering is typically used for upscale retailers or restaurants around Northern Virginia. Awning signs and A-frames are much more common for casual diners and food establishments–and they’d look completely out of place outside a lawyer’s office! Clearly, sign type matters; the style and material you choose can hurt or help your business in a big way. For help choosing the best sign type to build your brand in Northern Virginia, call 571-512-SIGN to speak with our design experts.
  • Leverage proven design principles. There aren’t many sign design secrets left. Plenty of research has been done on what designs work best for catching the eye, making impressions, and generating foot traffic. Generally speaking, it’s about simplicity–short and simple sign copy, common words, easy-to-read-fonts, and plenty of negative space. You can look sign design principles up on your own, but don’t be afraid to ask for professional help from our designers.
  • Know the law. Your business location may have certain legalities to consider regarding sign installation. Check with local city planners and authorities before you make your move. If you need help determining relevant sign laws for your business storefront sign in Northern Virginia, Legendary Custom Signs and Graphics can help.
