Exterior Signage Considerations
Outdoor signage can come in all forms and sizes, making choosing the perfect one to be the face of your company or brand quite a challenge. Here are a few things to keep in mind during the selection process.
Location, Location, Location
There are countless outdoor sign options to choose from, but it’s important to note that not everything will look good on your establishment or bring in the results that you expect.
Your sign’s location and placement need to be taken into consideration before any decision is made. A clear understanding of where your sign’s going to be placed will definitely help you decide on what size it should be, what material you should go with, and how durable it needs to be.
Here at Axe Signs & Wayfinding, the outdoor signs we make are custom-crafted to best suit and complement the area where they’ll be placed. This is is one of the details that we make sure to get during our free initial conversation.
However, if you’re not sure where the exterior sign should be installed, our team of sign experts and professional installers can definitely help you out with that.
Does Your Signage Speak Your Brand Message?
Most of your audience sees your outdoor signs as the face of your business, an extension of your unique brand, and a reflection of the service/products that you offer.
Outdoor signs communicate to every single person who notices it, and it’s very important to ask yourself: Is my signage clearly conveying the message that I want it to? Does it speak to my company’s brand message?
Having been a signage provider for many years, Axe Signs & Wayfinding understands that your outdoor signage advertises something about you. So what do you want to advertise about your company? If you want to exude strength and permanence, monument signs made of concrete or stone can convey that for you. If you’re looking to exude class and exclusivity, awning signs or canopy signs may be a good choice. If you want something eye-catching, brand-cohesive, and easily movable, professionally designed yard signs made from vinyl can be the answer.
There are countless ways to go about choosing your outdoor sign’s type, design, material, and placement, and our team of sign experts here at Axe Signs & Wayfinding are here to give you the answers and advice that you need in the selection process. We are more than happy to assist you from start to finish!
Outdoor signs, just like many other sign types, don’t just come with benefits and results, they also come with responsibilities. One of these responsibilities would be code compliance. Here in Ontario, we have policies and regulations for different types of signs.
Road signs, for example, follow certain standards and rules with regard to their size, shape, font style, font color, font size, etc. Certain indoor signs also need to be compliant to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) standards. So before you start out with any sign project, it’s important to have an understanding of the laws, guidelines, and codes that your signs need to adhere to.
Here at Axe Signs & Wayfinding, we’ve been in the business long enough to have the experience and expertise necessary in designing, fabricating, and installing code-compliant outdoor signs. During your free initial signage consultation, one of our experienced sign specialists will not only gather the necessary details about your business, brand, and budget, they will also take note of the sign types you need and will help you with researching any relevant local or state codes and standards.
Popular Storefront Signage Types
While there are many different exterior signs and graphic products available for both brand promotion and business identification, many businesses first consider their storefront sign. This sign will define their brand, and as such, should be crafted in a way to maximize visibility and cohesion with your business identity. There are many materials, methods, and processes for sign creation. As your Etobicoke outdoor signage experts, we make sure you are getting the ideal sign type for your needs, brand, budget, and business.
Channel Letters & Dimensional Letters
Channel letters, dimensional letters, and 3d logos are a customizable and popular storefront signage selection.
With the ability to completely modify every aspect of your lettering and design, we can incorporate your branding through use of specific fonts, brand colours, and the appropriate size to suit both your placement on your building and to be easily seen and understood from those passing by. Your channel letters or dimensional signs can include any elements you would like, from your business name and tagline to custom cut or formed shapes, such as your logo. With this high level of personalization, every business gets a sign that is unique and perfectly suited to their business.
We deliver high-quality, durable building signs that withstand weathering and daily wear. If you are looking for a branded sign that will withstand the test of time, dimensional letters or channel letters are the perfect choice.
Channel letters are durable, versatile, and highly-customizable, making them a popular choice across business types.
Custom Sign Panels
Sign panels are one of the fastest and most affordable storefront signage options.
Custom sign panels are customized to your building, brand, and desires, with the exact messaging and placement you desire. Sign panels are often fixed directly to the storefront, and are constructed of a metal panel with final sheets or cut lettering adhered. They can also be utilized as part of a cabinet or lightbox sign, or utilized in other locations, such as part of a monument or pole sign.
Sign panels allow for full-color graphic design, making them a great choice for brands with complex or complicated logos, or those desiring to use a secondary background color to give their sign more impact.
Our sign panel experts will discuss your timeframe, space, budget, and desires to recommend the appropriate type of panel sign for your business and needs.
Sign Panels work well for new and small businesses, service providers, manufacturing plants, and other business types seeking a functional & effective customized storefront sign.
When the nights are long or the weather is poor, nothing attracts customers better than a custom lighted sign!
LED signs, such as illuminated channel letters, backlit dimensional letters, or digital message centers and displays make it easy for new customers to find you any time and in any weather condition. LED illuminated signs are earth-friendly compared to alternatives like neon or fluorescent. They produce less waste, require less power for operation, last longer, and require only a fraction of both initial and maintenance costs over time.
The key to a good sign is visibility! There are many options for custom lighted signage, from traditional neon signs to adding traditional lighting to panel signs. Our signage experts can create a new outdoor lighted sign for your storefront, or can help you get more visibility for your existing signage by adding lighted elements.
Lighted signs are ideal for restaurants, gas stations, retail stores, convenience stores, theaters, comedy clubs, nightclubs, bars, comedy clubs, and any business looking to improve their visibility.
Complete Outdoor Signage Provider
According to studies, over 70% of consumers often shop on their way home from work. The study also says that 68% of consumers frequently make shopping-related decisions as they drive. Such differences in consumer behavior is one reason why you need a wide range of outdoor sign types to choose from.
If you’re looking to influence people who shop on their way home from work, putting up storefront signs strategically designed and positioned to greet potential customers as they pass by can be an effective way to do that. If you want to draw in those that make shopping decisions in their cars, then you can perhaps take advantage of traffic jams and invest in vehicle wraps.
Of course, a wide selection also means a more challenging selection process. Don’t worry! Our team of Etobicoke outdoor sign experts are here to help you out. They guide you through the sign selection process by giving you the pros and cons of each sign type, answering your questions, providing honest feedback to your ideas, and making professional recommendations.
