Top Reasons To Replace Old Business Signs


That old adage that you never get a second chance to make a first impression goes for more than just a personal interaction. In fact, what your business signs are saying about your business can also be impacting your ability to bring in new customers, particularly in retail, restaurant, or walk-in business types of settings.

Most established businesses really don't give a second thought to their sign. It is only when a new business puts up a great looking sign that they start to take a long look at what their signage looks like in comparison. At Dave's Signs, we often getvery well established businesses that want to upgrade their outdoor or even indoor signs to give them a more contemporary feel.

The good news is that by replacing old signs with new designs and technology you can give your business a new look. It doesn't have to be drastically different and often just enhancing and updating both thetechnology and the design of the sign is all that is required.

A Cleaner Look

Today, iconic types of business signs are not the busy, overwhelming type of Las Vegas style signage that was very popular in the 1980s and onward. Today's signs tend to be unique, creative and branded, creating an impression of the business that is consistent with the corporate message.

Streamlined and sleek, minimal and iconic, or more elaborate or retro, we have the ability to upgrade your current sign design to make something that is perfect to capture your business message and brand while also creating interest.

Today's signs can incorporate a much wider range of images, colors, designs and styles, and they are very different than those old neon types of signs that were so popular a couple of decades ago.

An iconic, modern look to your sign doesn't mean you have toleave your current design behind. In fact, at Dave's Signs, we will talk to youand get a good understanding of the designs elements of your current sign weneed to keep, and then we can create a new and upgraded look around those classic elements.

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.
