Outdoor Sign Maintenance

Outdoor business signs are an important investment. Keeping these signs maintained with some regular upkeep will help the business get its money’s worth. Keep outdoor signage lasting for years to come with these sign maintenance tips:

  1. Lighting

If the sign is illuminated, check on the lighting regularly whether it’s an LED sign or lit from the inside. It’s pretty easy to tell if a bulb has gone out in a sign. Partially or dimly lit signs can give customers a bad impression, so fix any lighting issues as soon as possible.

  1. Cleaning

With all of the different weather conditions in Boise and the Treasure Valley like rain, snow, and even sunshine, outdoor signs can get dirty or faded over time. Clean the signage monthly, or more depending on how dirty it gets. During cleaning is a great time to check for cracks, and chipped or peeling paint, which Infinity Signs NW may be able to repair.

  1. Interior

If the sign has an interior, it will also need some maintenance. Check for clogged drain holes due to leaves, dirt, and even insects or animals. Birds frequently like to nest in signage, which could create some electrical problems.

Business signage is often the first impression a customer has of a business, so it should be in top shape all the time, but not every business owner has the time or resources to do regular sign maintenance. Infinity Signs NW can help. We offer sign maintenance and repairs for our customers. If the sign has become faded, chipped, or rusted, we can get it back to looking like new, or replace it with a new sign if it is beyond its lifetime.

Designing Yard Signs

Many businesses can benefit from lawn signs. These are generally installed in customers’ yards, or outside of a business to give more information about the business services. The key to making a good impression on passersby is a well-crafted yard sign. To be effective, a sign needs to be informative and attention-grabbing.

The team at Infinity Signs can help design an effective sign for any type of business in Boise and throughout the Treasure Valley. To create an effective yard sign, it first needs to have the basic information about the business.

This includes:

  • Name and Logo
  • Phone Number
  • Physical Address (if appropriate)
  • Website URL

If the sign is for a special promotion, here are a few more items to add:

  • Call to Action
  • Slogan
  • Text or SMS Code

Color

Yard signs must stand out since they aren’t tall and at eye level. Making them stand out requires smart color choices. Use bold colors that complement one another. The text and the background colors should contrast each other, so the text is easier to read.

Text

Text needs to be readable. A mix of capital and lower-case letters is best for accomplishing this clarity. A sign full of capital letters can be difficult to read. Usually you will want to use the same font throughout the sign, and make sure it is simple. Sometimes a different font or font color will be used for one or two words to really make them stand out.

Graphics

Adding graphics on a sign can help it stand out. Generally, the graphic on a yard sign is the company’s logo. However, it could also be a drawing or photo relating to the sign. The graphic should not clash with the colors of the text and background.
