    Graphic Design for Exterior Business Signs

    Do you have a logo? Do you have the art file for your logo?  Can it be reproduced on a sign or the side of a building?  No matter if you are a new business or an established business, at some point, a branding message will need to be placed on business cards, stationary, and brochures.  But did you know that the art used for these paper items don’t always translate well for signage?

    Before picture logo design for Holy Smokes

    Case in point:  Our good customer, Holy Smokes Colorado, had a logo:

    As you can see, this logo is in a “portrait” layout.  Their exterior lighted sign is “landscape”.  Unfortunately, if we used the logo as designed, the impact would be lost because of the white space on either side of the logo.  This is where having a graphic design team is important for a sign company.  The graphic designers at Reflection Signs & Graphics took elements from their logo and transformed it into an eye-catching, vibrant, design just perfect for an exterior, backlit sign.

    Now, their customers can find them and new ones will be attracted to this bright, vibrant exterior sign!

    Graphic Design is Critical for Outdoor Business Signs

    Your exterior business sign is not only a way to tell customers where you are located, it also defines your brand. First impressions for a business can be created with a custom outdoor business sign. Professional graphic design for signs tells the consumer what you do and gives them a sense of your business. Graphic design plays a critical role in creating a feeling for the consumer to help them decide if they will use your business or not.

    Sign Permits and Site Surveys

    In addition to first impressions, each city has code and requirements for outdoor business signs. An exterior sign must be compliant with local codes and permits must be pulled in order to get an outdoor business sign up. We provide full exterior sign services from graphic design to creation to site surveys and permit applications. Get more than graphic sign design, have a hassle-free experience for your business sign.

    3 years ago-Reflection Signs and Graphics did a wonderful job for us. We needed someone to design and install a large entry sign for our new law firm. Reflection Signs provided fast communication and turn around, really listened to our goals, and delivered an amazing sign.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to use Reflection Signs again or to recommend them. They went above and beyond our expectations.
