Building signs attach to an exterior or interior wall and can be illuminated, such as channel letters or a sign cabinet, or can be non-illuminated, such as a banner, flat cut-out letters, or acrylic or metal panel signs.
For many businesses, the very first opportunity to impress your customers comes in the form of their storefronts and building facades. We understand the importance of your building signs and work with you to create building signs that deliver an outstanding first impression.
High-quality, creative, and attractive building signs set your business apart from your competition. This allows your business to capture a larger share of consumer interest, visitors, and more importantly, a larger share of the available business.
The Right Sign For Your Building
No two businesses use the same building signs. Nuances in branding needs, location, budget, and target audience all impact the choices you make when it comes to your building signage. Sign Advisors of Houston will help you navigate the entire process and ensure that you get the building signs that suit you best.
TYPES OF BUILDING SIGNS
Depending on your business location and signage needs, we may recommend one of the following types of building signs.
Channel Letter and Dimensional Letter Signs
Of all the signage types available, dimensional signs and channel letters are the most commonly used. They are very versatile as they can sport a variety of fonts, colors, and styles. Dimensional signs and channel letters usually include individual numbers, letters, logos, and in some cases shapes.
Dimensional letters are usually made from a single sheet of acrylic, metal or other material and have varying depth in the lettering that creates a 3D effect. On the other hand, channel letters have a transparent face, which allows installation of lighting into the letters. Both of these sign types are attractive and effective.
As a signage solution, dimensional signs and channel letters can be used for a wide variety of business types including retails stores, manufacturing facilities, and many other industries.
Illuminated signs give businesses the ability to be seen during the day as well as at night. While many different signs can easily be backlit, channel signs and cabinet signs epitomize the effectiveness of backlighting. They are perfect for businesses that operate well into the night, including gas stations, convenience stores, theatres, bars, and much more.
Projecting Signs, Hanging Signs and Blade Signs
Whether they are called hanging signs, projecting signs, or blade signs, they all refer to signs that are perpendicular to your business building, instead of being installed on the façade of your building. The sign construction can be a backlit cabinet sign, or a sign made of treated wood, metal, or high-density urethane foam.
These types of signs are very effective for attracting foot traffic and are usually used to complement existing storefront or building signs. They can also be used as directional signs for businesses that lack an exterior storefront when they are located in a shared building.
Canopy & Awning Signs
Awning signs are typically used as a storefront protector as well as a business identifier. They are usually fabricated using canvas materials. Other types of fabric and even metals can also be used depending on the specifications and needs. However, the best material to use is a material that is resistant to weathering, giving the signs longevity. They are the perfect solution for businesses looking to create a boutique-feeling experience or open-air café or restaurant atmosphere.
