One of the first rules of business is good visibility. There’s no way that you can build a business without people being able to see who you are and what you do or what you sell. So, when it comes to signage you want to make sure that everything is as visible as it can possibly be. In the industry, we try to make sure that your sign designs are able to be seen and be read by everyone who encounters them. That means high-contrast colors and the right sized signs in the right places. Sometimes, that means you need illuminated signs that can be seen at night. Here are a few of the important things to remember about illuminated signs from Unlimited Signs:
The Right Style
Illumination is a must for night-time visibility, but there isn’t just one way to illuminate your signs. There are a number of styles and lighting types that you can use in your signs. It’s important that you find the lighting type and style that will fit your image and your budget. For example, traditional lighting fixtures may be more affordable immediately, but LED lights will save you money in the long run by offering you saving in maintenance and on your electric bill.
The style of the sign can also dramatically change the way people look at it. We offer a number of possible styles that can be used on your building, on a pole in your parking lot or as a monument at the end of a driveway. This allows us to provide the perfect illuminated sign for your needs.
Along with these styles there are also ways to personalize the look of some of them. For example, you can choose several different lighting styles for channel letter signs on your building. The lighting fixture can shine through the front of the letters or through the back for a halo look. Either way, we can find a style that fits your store, office or facility and maximizes your exposure.
The Right Permits
Illuminated signs can be difficult despite all of their definite positive qualities. You need the electricity to run them, their maintenance is a little bit more complicated and usually the local ordinances in your area can be a little more strict regarding this type of sign. So, the permitting and planning stages can be difficult.
Especially in residential areas, illuminated signs can be tough. People don’t generally like a bright sign shining in their bedroom windows while they’re trying to sleep. If this turns out to be a problem, we can work within your local regulations to make sure you get a great sign without having to remove it or pay a fine. Instead of the lighting coming from the sign, spotlights can be used to make sure your sign can be read at night. These spotlights will only shine on the sign, so you won’t have to worry about disturbing your neighbors.
