When opening a business in a new location, one of the most important aspects to plan for is the signage. It has been found that 50% of business for start-up companies comes from sign exposure. This means having effective signage is crucial for a new business.
An effective sign not only has to be designed well, but it needs to be implemented in the right way. Here are some tips on design and implementation of signs:
When designing a sign, new businesses need to take these factors into consideration: color, materials, contrast and size. The team at Infinity Signs NW can make design process suggestions to help create the best sign possible. Many of the design decisions will depend on budget and the building constraints.
How the sign is implemented might be even more important than the design. Even if a sign is expertly designed, if it is not properly placed or installed then the design will be ineffective. Here are some implementation tips:
The sign needs to be seen easily for it to be effective. Retail stores often place their signs high above the building to attract customers who may be passing by on the street. Other types of businesses might be better served with signage that is at eye level.
It can be worth it to experiment with signage placements before making the installation permanent. Ask customers for their preferences and see where the sign is most effective.
There are regulations, permits and building codes that surround business signage. These factors need to be taken into consideration before the design process even starts. City ordinances can have an enormous impact on the type of sign and how large it can be.
Signage can have a tremendous influence on attracting customers, which is important for new businesses. Talk to Infinity Signs NW about creating effective business signage for new businesses in Boise and throughout the Treasure Valley.
