A Quick Guide to Exterior Signs for Businesses

There are many different kinds of exterior signs to choose from. You might feel overwhelmed with everything that’s out there. Luckily for you, we at the Sign Factory are here to help. This blog post is about several types of exterior signs, including post and panel signs, which many people don’t know can be used for more than the just real estate.

Let’s take a closer look at exterior signs.

Channel Letters

These are a form of the exterior sign that can be illuminated with LED lights. This is a great option for those businesses that stay open late. Channel letters are made out of an aluminum frame with an acrylic body that can be translucent, allowing light to pass through. They are installed on the exterior wall of your building. These signs are popular with retail stores and smaller shops.

Cabinet Signs

Cabinet signs are similar to channel letters in that they can both be installed on the exterior wall of a building. However, cabinet signs can also be installed on a pylon sign or can be designed to look like a monument sign.

Monument Signs

Monument signs sometimes referred to as architectural signs, are a choice that can add a lot of grandeur to your brand. These are usually placed on the edge of your property at the front. This will help visitors to your business find you easily. This type of sign would be a nice choice for a law firm.

Post and Panel Signs

These exterior signs aren’t only for real estate. You can use them for the entrances of a housing development or even in place of a monument sign or cabinet sign. They are versatile and easy to install because they’re lightweight. It’s a good idea to use treated wood for these particular signs so that they stand up to the elements and resist insect damage.

Outdoor Banners

Banners are a good form of temporary exterior signage. Usually, they are made of vinyl, so you don’t have to worry about water damaging them. Make sure these signs are secured to something, especially if you live in an area prone to wind damage. You can tie them to posts or use a base filled with water to display these signs. It’s a fun idea to use banners for outdoor festivals.
