Less is More in Banner Signs

One of the governing principles in banner design is to keep it simple. The copy should be large and of a color sufficiently contrasting so as not be overwhelmed by the background, or blend with it.

Keep it Simple

Most signs whether indoor or outdoor, large or small, work within an impossible timeframe. They have scarcely a couple of seconds to perform their task which is to grasp the interest of their audience. This calls for an attention-grabbing design which exploits fully the location, time and space it occupies. When designing a vinyl banner sign, keep it simple. The designer has to decide what is a 'must know' for the audience to fire its curiosity. It is not necessary to say absolutely everything about a product, event or service in one single design. A banner must have a lean and mean message to be effective. If it cannot be done in two short lines, then it's not meant for a banner sign.

In a good banner design the text does the work. The logo should be left to the end to leave an enduring impression in the mind of the reader. Light letters on a dark background are effective in banner signs. The light letters stand out while the background recedes. Avoid heavy copy, clever graphics and fancy fonts. These take time to grasp and are an instant turn-off. The company's name and website is important but the address is not. Like we said - less is more in banner signs.

The Importance of Color

Color is important to signs, and color speaks in nuances that subtly solicit the minds of consumers. Consistency in color is vital to brand image. When repeated in a product signage, it strengthens the brand image. Colors work the same way as a good catch line or heading. Colors can embed themselves in a customer's psyche where he or she associates a particular color or color combination with a certain company, product or event. Color, if used carefully, can be a powerful tool. Most major companies have established their own branding color.

Promotional Gifts and Graphics

One of the most successful means of advertising a business, product or service is through the medium of promotional gifts. Promotional gifts, whether large or small, are always appreciated and leave an enduring impact on the recipient. These could be products or merchandise, which in one way or another directs the recipient to a company name, slogan or a particular brand. Promotional gifts or products have a high success rate when compared with other forms of advertising.
A study has shown that customers respond better to a promotional gift than a coupon offering a monetary discount. For this reason the promotional gift industry is expanding by leaps and bounds.

Wide Range of Promotional Gifts

Sign my Signs is a Bay Area company of sign makers that offers a wide range of services which include printing company logos or slogans on an assortment of promotional giveaways. Promotional gifts can be inexpensive, like key chains, note pads, pens, office supplies, calendars and coffee mugs to higher end items like laptop bags and portfolio cases. Bumper stickers are another promotional freebie that obtains wide exposure. A promotional gift is a handy way to attract attention to a company name and so build brand loyalty. Promotional gifts are one of the cheapest means of creating a promotional advertising campaign. For this purpose giveaways are often ordered in bulk to avail of tiered pricing.

Sign my Signs has built up a reputation for innovative ideas and on-time deliveries. Please do read some of their many testimonials detailed at www.yelp.com. Call Sign my Signs at (408) 899-2889 for a host of ideas and suggestions, or visit www.signmysigns.com & www.signmakersbayarea.com.

High Visibility and Low Cost Banners

Another high-visibility, low-cost means of advertising is the use of banners, removable graphics, A-frames and posters. Retractable banners, for example, are eye-catching, cheap and easy to use. They are easily transportable, can be erected in a minute and reused on several occasions. Retractable banners are particularly useful at trade shows, retail displays, shopping malls, airports, presentations, press conferences and any location which calls for a portable banner display.Retail banner stands are portable, but are heavier and ideally suited to areas like a retail location that caters to heavy traffic. Retail banner stands are built with a heavier base to make them sturdier.

Other types of banner stands are spring-back banner stands, telescopic banner stands, X and L banner stands. These types lack the retraction mechanism and have to be manually erected.

Wall and Window Graphics

Wall and window graphics are easily removable and can comfortably be relocated. Posters and wall graphics are preferred by retailers, stores and shopping malls which have to promote fresh products frequently. The promotional matter must be replaced often; hence the original graphic must be removed quickly, easily and above all, without damage to walls or where they are attached. Adhesive wall graphics made of thin self-adhesive vinyl are another popular option. These are easy to affix – just peel and stick – are removable and leave no residual traces.


Great Gift Idea this Festive Season

Signage; the Essence of Outdoor Advertising

Every individual is faced with a mind-blowing array of outdoor signs every day. In fact they are so prolific that their significance is often taken for granted. However, outdoor signs have an overwhelming impact as a medium of advertising. So why are outdoor signs so important?

Signs are a silent and effective form of communication. They are visual graphics that perform a specific function. They are intended to convey a message or piece of information. For example, a sign outside a store front might be intended only to indicate the presence of the establishment. In this case it performs a specific location function. But another sign outside the store front can also be poised to grab the attention of a reader with a compelling message, as in the case of a clearance sale. In both cases the sign is a form of communication to advertise.

The more striking the sign, the more likely it is to impact and embed itself in the reader's psyche. A reader's eyes skim over a lackluster sign without creating or leaving any impression at all. Whereas one that is attractively presented and striking catches the eye of the reader, leaving an enduring impression.

Hence it pays to consider the true purpose of the sign, what its real objective is and whom it is trying to reach out to and influence. An effective sign is the first small step on the ladder to creating a good image of a brand or business.

Let's briefly explore some of the commonly used signs that are the bedrock of these powerful store fronts and business park mediums.

• Light Boxes at retail locations afford a commanding platform to showcase products or services with lighted displays.

• Monument Signs are useful not only as directional indicators but also leave a memorable impression.

• Sign Cabinets come in a huge range of varieties that can be illuminated or non-illuminated. Sign cabinets are useful to promote any product or service with excellent outdoor performance.

• Channel Letters are three-dimensional, individually cut letters or figures that can be affixed to a structure and are very effective in business parks.

• Banner Signs are a flexible and inexpensive means of advertising that convey the first impression of a business.

• Illuminated Signs are a brilliant and colorful means of transmitting any sort of message or advertising for a product either by day or by night.

These are just some of the vast variety of signage that is available to promote a product or a business. The magnitude of good signage cannot be underestimated or compromised.

This is where Sign my Signs, a group of brilliant sign makers in the California Bay Area score. Theirs is a tight-knit team of experienced professionals who have conceptualized, designed and produced some of the most eye-catching signs in the business. They have specialized in all facets of signage for maximum impact.
