What message does your building send to those who walk and drive past it daily? Don’t let your building sit unnoticed. Custom outdoor signs can help you stand out from the crowd in a plaza, or help potential customers take a second look at a building they have become accustomed to. New exterior signage can rebuild your brand perception or work with the outdoor business signs you already have.

Most of these signs have lighting options. Exterior lighted signs will catch more attention and be more visible when it is dark or overcast. If you have a business that operates in the evening, then you likely will want a lit sign. However, non-lit signs can be just as compelling and are more affordable, even though they are not as visible.
These signs can also be made of a wide range of materials (although not as many as indoor signs). Any outdoor sign material needs to withstand the elements and still look great. Outdoor metal signs should be made of a suitable metal or treated to prevent rust and corrosion. Pole signs and monument signs must be made of supportive, tough materials. However, you can get outdoor banner signs (and more) made of a cost-effective vinyl that is still tough enough to hold up to the sun and rain.
Here are a few signage types that go well with illumination:
Retail establishments and hotels often install awnings and canopies that serve as marquees. Awnings are made of high-quality fabric covering an aluminum frame, and canopies typically extend outside the building to provide coverage. This signage can be illuminated with fluorescent lamps. These awning signs brighten your company’s image significantly.
These are illuminated signs that normally make use of LED or fluorescent lighting to produce a striking display. Almost all gas stations, hotels, and storefronts have lightbox signs. They are also common in retail settings.
Channel letters are made-to-order metal or plastic letters, often internally illuminated, that are used in exterior signage on public and commercial buildings. Dimensional letters are typically used to describe three-dimensional letters that are applied to sign panels or monuments, but are not illuminated.
A monument sign is a ground-level sign where a driver or passerby can easily see the information about the business. It is typically constructed out of stone, brick, plastic, or other long-lasting materials. To draw attention, commercial monument signs may also have LED lighting or displays.
Outdoor signs have so many uses. Here are just a few:
