5 Signs You Need For Opening Shop

Choosing the right branding signage for your business is essential when opening an office or brick and mortar storefront. Signage not only identifies your business, but it also acts as advertisement, provides brand awareness, and helps drive sales. You’ve invested hard work, time, and effort into your business, and well branded signage ensures people are aware of what you’ve built. We’ve compiled a list of 5 signs you need when opening a business:

1. Main Exterior Sign

Arguably the most important signage for your business is the main exterior sign. Often located near a high-traffic area, this sign is the first impression your business will have on customers. At Port City Signs & Graphics, we provide custom-made signs in the material of your choosing. Without a main exterior sign, many passersby would be unaware of your business. Take full advantage of main exterior signage and let people know where your business is located. We offer the following main exterior signs:

  • Exterior logo signs
  • Routed woodgrain signs
  • Monument signs
  • Projecting signs

2. Entrance Door Sign

Once you have the main exterior sign up, you need to direct people to the door. Don’t lose customers to the shop next door because they can’t find your business. Draw customers in with a custom-made entrance door sign from Port City Signs & Graphics. We offer a variety of door graphics to bring brand awareness to your business, including:

  • Frosted vinyl
  • White/solid color vinyl
  • Full-color printed vinyl
  • Full-color perforated printed vinyl (view-thru)

3. Lobby Sign

Office signage is equally important as the exterior branding signage for your business. Branding your lobby with signs will help amplify your business’s presence and leave a lasting impression on your customers. At Port City Signs & Graphics, we offer a wide variety of custom-made interior signs and graphics. No matter how big or small your lobby is, we have an option for you, including:

  • Acrylic prints
  • Metal prints
  • Large format prints
  • Wall art & murals
  • Interior dimensional logos
  • Custom frost/etch for glass
  • Restroom & ADA room signs
  • PVC prints
  • Directional signs

4. Yard Signs

The signs listed above are permanent fixtures, but your business also needs temporary signage such as yard signs. Yard signs are a great way to spread brand awareness without investing in a billboard. This affordable signage is particularly effective in spreading the word about your business’s new location or upcoming event, as the signs can easily be placed on the side of the road in high-traffic areas. 

5. Banners

These cost-effective signs are great for indoor and outdoor applications. Inside, banners can be used for long-term purposes. Outside, banners are appropriate for short-term announcements such as a grand opening event. Being both an economical and highly-effective form of advertising, banners offer the best of both worlds. At Port City Signs & Graphics, we understand the nature of businesses both small and large, which is why we make high-quality banners with quick turnaround, quality workmanship, and great customer service, all at competitive rates. We offer different styles of banners, including:

  • Vinyl banners
  • Mesh banners
  • Pole banners
  • Retractable “pop-up” vertical banners

Our team brings decades of printing experience, unbeatable customer service, and top-of-the-line materials to ensure your signage will last for years to come. Call us for a quote today and let the experts at Port City Signs & Graphics give distinction to your brand with custom signage!
