Storefront SignsWhat is a Store Front Sign?

Storefront signs are signs that appear on the fronts of businesses and retail stores. Storefront signs typically identify the business with the name of the store, a slogan or motto, a logo, or all three. Storefront signs can also advertise sales as well as convey other information such as hours of operation, a telephone number, address, etc.

At Legendary Signs, we know what it takes to make great business storefront signs. They need to capture people’s attention and make them want to enter your store. When you work with us, we will use the vast knowledge we have gained from years of experience to create a sign that you will be proud of.

Uses of Storefront Signs for your Business

Your storefront is the face of your business. Your storefront sign needs to get people’s attention whether you’re located on a busy street in Alexandria or a quieter part of Manassas Park, so it should be bold and colorful. It should also accurately represent your brand and identity.

Custom storefront signs need to be made with your customer base in mind. What do you think will entice people to enter your business and want to buy your products? Having a storefront sign that is inviting and incorporates your business’s personality into it is key to attracting new customers and welcoming returning customers.

Choosing the Right Types of Storefront Sign

You can use a number of different types of signs as storefront signs. Some signs that would be suitable to act as storefront signs include window graphics, awning signs, building signage, temporary signs (for sales and events), projecting signs, hanging signs, post and panel signs, and more!

Types of Storefront Signs

There are a lot of different paths you can take when thinking about what kind of sign you want for your business. Let’s examine a few different signs and what they offer:

  • Illuminated & non-illuminated Letters and Logos: Having 3D channel letters that light up makes them shine and stand out on a busy street during the nighttime. The light is warm and comforting, and people find them welcoming.
  • Cabinet Signs: Cabinet signs are big box signs that light up and make a statement. They are big, so they project power. You can even have a double-sided cabinet sign, so it is seen by on-coming traffic from both ways.
  • Awning Signs: Awning signs are great if you already have an awning and want to incorporate signage above or onto the awning. You could also put a window graphic underneath that matches the awning.
  • Electronic Message Centers: You can have the ability to create custom messages and you can play around with different quotes and try different ideas when you invest in one of these. They are big and bright, and you can change the message whenever you need to.

Frequently Asked Questions

A store sign is called a storefront sign and it is usually mounted above the entrance of your store. Your storefront sign should be designed to entice people to enter your business and let people know what you do clearly and understandably.

You want to incorporate something from your business and include the company name and logo. For example, if you run a health food store, using a shade of green in your signage could be effective at communicating that you sell healthy food. You can also include your phone number and social media information if you choose.

There are dimensional signs, which can be any type of sign with an added dimension—such as 3D logo signs—and there are also channel letters. These are 3D letters that stand alone, but when put together, create a sign. The letters are usually illuminated.

Retail signage is any sign that is designed to sell a retail product. These signs include graphics and display information about a product or service you sell with the hopes of getting people to become customers.

There are many factors to consider, including size, design, color, visibility, price, etc. When you choose to work with us, we will take you through the process and explain everything to you upfront, so you are not confused about anything.

A storefront sign should be located at the front of your store, atop your entranceway. This is a way of inviting people in and letting passersby know what you sell.

A retail store is all about making sales, and if you can increase sales with signage, then you must install them. You can advertise sales, new products, upcoming events, etc. A successful business must do what it takes to get customers through the door, and signage works at getting customers into your business.

The bigger, the better. You want people to see your storefront sign from a distance, as it can influence impulse decisions. If someone is hungry for a type of food you sell, for example, and they can see your sign from a distance before they see any other sign, there is a chance they will decide to choose your business before any others.
