Getting the Most Out of Real Estate Signs


Real estate signs need to grab people’s attention, whether they are for commercial or residential purposes. Real estate signs are just one type of sign that Infinity Signs can create. To get the most of the real estate signs, try these tips when designing:

  • Use Borders

Borders can be used to direct the eye exactly where it needs to go whether that is the name if the realtor, the price, or the contact information. Use them to box in the most important information.

  • Color Combination

There should be two other colors besides white on the sign. Generally the color combination are decided by the company logo and branding. Use strong colors, but make sure they complement each other well. Avoid using red alone because it can be too alarming to the eye.

  • Graphics

Be sure the logo is large enough for people to see it and recognize it when driving by. Having a larger logo will help potential buyers remember the sign and be able to recall the real estate company. If a new realtor doesn’t have a logo yet, Infinity Signs can help come up with the perfect logo too.

  • Personalize

Unique signs will stand out more than a standard “for sale” sign. The graphic design team at Infinity Signs can help design a unique sign to draw in potential buyers. Signs with a unique twist help potential buyers be able to recall them.

  • Frame

The frame for the sign doesn’t have to just hold the sign up. Frames can also be used to distribute materials such as flyers and brochures.

For unique, personalized real estate signs that will get a property noticed, contact Infinity Signs. Their graphic design team can help design exactly what the realtor dreams up. Or they can work with the realtor to come up with a design to fit their needs.

ADA Sign Specifications

When people think of business signs, the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) signs might not be the first thought, but they are important for every business when dealing with the public. ADA signs are building signs specifically designed to provide people with disabilities access to and functionality in business facilities. Without these signs, a business could not only be putting themselves in danger of fines or a lawsuit but people with disabilities will have a difficult, if not impossible, time utilizing the services of the company.

For businesses to be in compliance with the federal law regarding this type of signage, the signs posted in or around the building need to meet the following specifications:

  1. Location of Signs
  • ADA signs that identify rooms must be located adjacent to the door they identify
  • Permanent room signs must be mounted so that the characters are between 48 and 60 inches from the ground
  1. Braille on Signs
  • All ADA signs mist have tactile lettering to assist those with vision impairment
  • Braille must be lowercase except for proper nouns
  • The Braille must but rounded or domed
  1. Fonts/Characters/Backgrounds of Signs
  • The font on ADA signage needs to be a san serif typestyle
  • There must be a minimum of 1/8 inch between adjoining characters
  • The backgrounds and characters on ADA can’t emit a glare
  • Signage with visual characters must have a high light-dark contrast between the characters and the background

This is not a complete list of the ADA signage requirements but is a great place to begin reviewing the existing business signage. Being in compliance with ADA guidelines regarding signage will help businesses avoid government fines or litigation. If the signs are incorrect, a violation could also cause lasting damage to a business’s reputation with the public.
