Different Types Of Signage And Uses

There are many different types of signage, and each type has specific usages. Each type of signage works well for some applications, but might not work as well for others. Advertising signage should be considered carefully before you decide, as this can be a critical step to attracting new customers and  building the success of your business. This sign type would not work well as traffic signage, however, because it is a different type.

Advertising signage includes signs whose sole purpose is to advertise and to promote a business. These signs offer a terrific way to get exposure for your business at a very reasonable cost to your budget. This signage type can be made of many different materials and in many specific forms. Banners, pavement signs, magnetic vehicle signs, and neon signs are all considered advertising signage.  These signs draw attention to information about your company, like the name, phone number, and other details.

Neon lit signage includes all signs that are lit up by using electricity. The signs in this category are usually also advertising signage. Neon lighting can really get attention from anyone passing by, especially at night. The soft glow stands out and draws the eye towards it. These signs are often found in bars and pubs in large quantities, creating a very colorful and inviting atmosphere. Neon signage can be a little more, but the effects are worth it.

Street signage includes road signs that give directions, information, and warnings to motorists. These signs include limits for speed, stop and yield signs, and warning signs for dangers such as curves, limited view, steep incline or decline, and any other road hazard or regulation. Street signage also includes signs which help drivers and others navigate and find their way to a location, such as street signs, signs which state the distances to other locations, and more.

Signage comes in many types, and the best uses for each type will vary depending on what your exact requirements and needs are. Custom made signage involves signs which are exclusively created and designed based on your exact specifications. This type of signage creates a unique, one of a kind sign which reflects your business and personal tastes. Banners are a great type of custom made signage, and these are used for both business and personal purposes. Any party or event can be announced with a customized banner that shows how you feel, whether it is an anniversary, wedding reception, birthday party, grand opening, or any other special occasion or event.

No matter which signage type you choose for your business or personal needs, there are some factors to consider before choosing one. Think about what you want the signs to do. Should they light up, should they be easy to put up and remove, what purpose should the signage provide? Where do you want to place the signs, and who are they trying to attract? These are all important questions, whose answers will determine the type of signage that is best for your needs.
