The Beauty of Blade Signs


Does your business receive a great deal of foot traffic? If so, you could be losing out on a lot of potential customers if you don't have the right kind of blade signs. These signs are designed to attract passersby and let them know you have something important to offer. Your blade sign does not have to be just a basic sign. In fact, Dave's Signs can provide you with the perfect customized blade sign for your business, to attract the most attention.

What are Blade Signs ?

Years ago, when a local business opened up, the owner set out a shingle.This was a simple sign which extended straight out from the building and it let others know what was for sale. For example, a shoe maker might have hung out an image of a shoe. Blade signs can be very simple, or ornate and illuminated like many of the famous theater signs from the early 20th Century. They work best in these areas:

  • Strip malls
  • Downtown businesses
  • Areas with frequent pedestrian traffic
  • Businesses with sidewalks in front

Benefits of Using Blade Signs

These signs direct attention to your business. Like a directional or way-finding sign, your blade sign tells everyone "here I am."After all, if they don't see you, there is little chance they will find you. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Attract traffic - blade signs are not easily seen from the store front view. Instead, they are specifically designed for those passing by. This is the best way to capture attention of people who otherwise might not stop in.
  • Large businesses - maybe some of your stores or establishments are in strip malls. They could be losing a lot of customers if you have the same types of signs for all your businesses. For example, you might have 50 restaurants and 5 of them are inside department stores of super centers. These 5 restaurants could benefit greatly from blade signs.
  • Double sided - a good blade sign attracts attention of people coming and going.

Superior Graphic Design for our Custom Signs

Graphic design is not all about artistic skill; many outside factors influence how well the sign will work in its location. We are familiar with these outside influences, so we set out to develop each design to stand out in beauty and function, given each unique location. Whether you are purchasing a pylon sign, backlit channel letter sign, neon sign, or any custom sign, we use our creative graphic design talents to make it stand out. Contact us for questions about graphic design and signs.
