Retail Signs are usually placed in the front of a home or business when its being sold or rented. These signs are fairly simple, most of the time they have the name of the Realtor and the company which he/she works for. The only other thing on the sign is the number to contact, no information about the house or building unless they have an informative sheets attached to the sign for people to take. What makes these signs are the structures that boarder them. They are usually white and they have an authentic look to them that makes people know its a for sale/rent sign as soon as they see it. Although the signs are simple and do not contain a great deal of information, the info that is does give you is very important and needs to be clear and easy to read from the street. Its important if you are to use one of these signs that your producer gives you the best image possible, to make you and your company look more professional.
Although most of the time this type of signage is used for realty is can also be used as a business road sign or the main sign to a building. If you have a business on a piece of property it would not be a bad idea to have a sign like this labeling your business with the street address and phone number. Like I said earlier they are very distinct and grab peoples attention. You can have the same type of frame that a realtor sign has but with a different style. This will grab the attention of your street viewers and let them know that you are located there. These pieces show professionalism that makes your customers realize your the people to go see for whatever product you offer.

With all the new technology hitting the streets, its just a matter of time before signs are all digital. With higher resolution it is easier on the eyes, helping people to pick up colors and visuals better. It also allows for an advertising system where more then one company can be advertised on a sign. With the ability to play through a few different images it makes it easy for multiple companies to advertise with one sign. Digital signage is also great to display dates of sales or events. They are able to give a statement allowing viewers to get some details about the company or event rather then just a name. This is an awesome advertising tool that is not used effectively in today’s advertising. It would be the equivalent of having a commercial on the sign in front of your building. They have casing that protect them from water and any other elements. So no worries about repairs, another advantage is that your sign wont fade or wear out.

If you have transformed your bland old paint job into a unique or business advertising vehicle wrap, I would like to congratulate you. You have now successfully put your car into a new realm that will have all the people on the streets looking your way. Having a vinyl wrap is different then a paint job and requires a little different care.
1) Automatic car washes are now out of the question. The high pressure water and bristles from the machine will cause damage to your wrap and costly repairs. You should hand wash your car with a sponge, and a low pressure or mist of water. If you have to use a high pressure water system be sure to stand back at a distance and not to hold the stream on one point of the car, doing so could cause a tear in your vinyl.
2) When using wax, be sure to hand wax your car and DO NOT use a buffer. There are different kinds of wax, be sure to use one that is suitable for vinyl such as turtle wax. If you go to get your vehicle detailed be sure that they also use a wax that is vinyl friendly. Waxing your vehicle will keep your wrap clean and polished and also make it easier to deinstall of the wrap, leaving little to no adhesive behind.
3) Avoid parking under trees for any long periods of time. Sap from some trees can damage your wrap causing you more money.
4) If you have window perf it should be waxed as well. It will give your perf a longer life span and help the lamination. Do not use high pressure on the window perf as well, it can also cause damage.
Be sure to protect your wrap, it is an investment and bad care can cause to money down the drain.

Channel letters are one of the best signs to choose from to mark your business. When I say mark your business I mean these are the best signage piece to go with for the front of your company, these should be used above your front door to attract passing customers and identify your company.
Then industry standard for backings of channel letters is made from a aluminum with either a pre-painted finish or a mill finish. Other types of finishes could be anodized, brushed anodized and mirrored, the difference can be found in the thickness of the aluminum. The facing of the letters is where you can get more customized and create your own identity by selecting from color schemes material types, size and trim of the letters. The material for the facing of the letters comes in any color you would like, depending on the type of material you choose the LED lights will shine brightly making your letters brighter or dimmed down some by the material giving you a deeper color. Before LED lights were the standard channel letters did not have the depth they do know and were not as vibrant. Now the depth has been increased and the LED lights are very effective in lighting up the letters making them colorful and easily visible. Channel letters are a great for getting attention during the day and night, they are big and easily read making it easy for customers to locate or stumble across your company. Either way they are a great and inexpensive investment to attract more business.
