When it comes to creating impressions that last, sign design is everything. Many markets are over-saturated with competing businesses who offer similar products; the only way to distinguish yourself as a preferred vendor is by using marketing materials that have designs people will remember.

Vinyl signs and banners are the perfect way to introduce a new design into your business’s marketing strategy. With precise laser cutting and digital printers, Elite Custom Signs can bring even the most ambitious, intricate designs to life. From window graphics to vehicle wraps, vinyl is a versatile material that can instantly attract new customers, advertise sales, and give your storefront a fresh look. Similarly, banners can be used permanently or on the go—at tradeshows, festivals, hanging in busy malls, and outside your business to capture attention from passersby.

There are many different components of signs that are important to consider, especially if your goal is to make your business stand out and be memorable. In this blog, we will delve into our best tips for vinyl signage to help you deliver a memorable message, craft a unique design, and align your signs with your brand.

Integrate Your Message Properly

Regardless of your business, if your sign’s message does not align with your goals, or if your sign’s design does not serve its function correctly, its impact will be minimal. Vinyl is such a versatile material, meaning there are endless ways we can customize vinyl signs to meet your needs.

For example, vinyl signage can serve as a safety sign. Floor graphics can caution people to watch their step with a bright yellow background and bold, black letters. While the design and message are simple, it’s also effective.

In other instances, such as advertising with storefront window graphics or attracting attention at a trade show, the eye-catching qualities of your design and messaging are imperative. Use exciting color combinations that stand out or clear, short messages to grab attention and pique interest. To deliver your message properly, consider the size of your font, the font itself, and the color contrast you use in your custom vinyl signs or banners.

While black fonts are simple, easy-to-read, and traditional, you can also consider using contrasting colors that align with your branding. When implementing signage for your business, think about your aesthetic appeal and how your sign will become a seamless part of it.

Make Your Design Stand Out

Before people read your message, you must grab their attention. Using bright, vibrant colors, artistic designs, high-resolution graphics, and even cartoon images are many of the ways to achieve this goal. However, the type of vinyl signage you choose also contributes to the way your sign sets itself apart from other visual communication tools.

Explore the following sign options to determine which is best for setting your business up for success:

Vinyl Banner Designs

If you have a booth at a tradeshow or want to attract attention at any type of event—indoors or outdoors—vinyl banners are a fantastic option. They are weather-resistant, visibly displayed, and offer unique ways to elevate a trade show display. Given the versatility of vinyl signs, there are several different types you can choose, including:

·         Double-Sided Banner

A double-sided banner is a great option if you are hoping to attract attention from multiple directions. By having design control over both sides of your banner, your visibility exponentially increases. Whether you use a design that is different on both sides or has the same design, you can unlock double the impact.

·         Street Banners

Banners are cost-effective, making them an excellent way to advertise temporary promotions. Many businesses, from restaurants to retail stores, use banners to generate awareness of a weekly special or ongoing sale. As they are traditionally hung or displayed in a window, they are easily seen by passersby, which piques curiosity and often converts them into potential customers.

You can also use banners to announce the grand opening of your business, creating awareness weeks in advance and ensuring a successful launch. Sometimes, creating effective signage is as simple as letting people know your new location will be open soon. The more visibly your business is advertised, the higher the chances people will pay it a visit.

Integrate QR Codes

Consider integrating a QR code into your sign’s design to lead people to your website, promote a sale, or unlock an exclusive coupon code. This interactive component will entice customers to engage with your business or make an impulsive purchase. Guiding people to your website is an effective way to start an instant sales funnel, as it leads people to buy your offerings without needing them to enter your brick-and-mortar location.
