Saving Money When Buying Commercial Signs


If you are opening a new business, placing signs in and around your establishment can help gain customers and help them find their way once they are inside your building. Here are some tips to help you save the amount you spend on commercial signs for your new business:

Picking An Outdoor Sign

The sign you place in front of your building is the first impression your potential customers will have of your establishment. If you skimp on quality, they may think the quality of your wares or services are less than average. It is important to make your outdoor sign large enough to be seen from the road and in a print that is easily read. When selecting an outdoor sign, the size you pick and the materials it is constructed from will have a huge impact on price. 

If you are trying to save money, and you still want a professional looking sign, a banner can be placed across the top of your building to help draw in customers. This is an inexpensive alternative to a large permanent sign.

If you opt for a permanent sign to be placed on the front of your property, having it made in winter can save you money as summertime is the busiest time for sign companies. Many sign companies will offer discounts during the cooler months.

Buying Signs That Change

If you believe you will want to change the message you place on a sign, you will want a sign that can be altered. Consider buying a mobile sign or electronic sign to use in front of your business to draw in customers.These signs allow you to swap out the lettering when you wish, saving you money because you will not need to buy several signs to get your point across.

Buying Stock Signs

If you need signs for within your building, consider buying stock signs instead of having your signs personalized. These signs will still get the message across for a lesser price than if you had a sign custom-made. Many companies offer a variety of stock signs to choose from and they can be personalized by placing them on fancy name plates, putting lights around them or mounting them on a wooden backing. 

Considering Magnets

Magnetic signs offer the convenience of moving them around to different locations easily. You can place them on your vehicle to advertise your business, or you can put a few around your business where there is a magnetic surface. These are very inexpensive compared to permanent signs.

Consider placing magnetic backings wherever you need a sign within your establishment, such as on doors or in hallways. The signs can be placed on the backing and you have the option of changing the sign style frequently as the price is low.

Announcing an Impending Arrival

I enjoy communicating with my childhood friends on social media outlets. Because I live a long distance from my hometown, I don’t get to see them as often as I would like. A few days ago, I was shocked and excited when I saw a social media post by one of these close friends. He and his wife announced that they were going to have their second baby this December. However, the way that they made the announcement was unique. They made a picture of their son sitting in the sand on a beach. They placed four pairs of flip flops near their son. Beside these pairs of shoes, they placed unique signs. When I finished reading all of the signs, I was able to understand the announcement. On this blog, you will discover how to announce a pregnancy with the help of unique, custom signs.
