In late 2020, BSC purchased a Nova Photopolymer machine.  This particular machine creates photopolymer signs made to perfect ADA requirements.  We then add paint and substrates cut with our router or laser in house to create a wonderfully branded custom ADA Sign.  Let us help you with your next project!

Sign Types – Which Sign Do I Need?

There are SO many sign types to chose from and so we’ve developed a graphic to help! This will give you ideas and some basic terminology to help you communicate what you are looking for.

Common Sign Types

So you signed your lease and now you are thinking about how customers are finding your location. You may need one or more of the signs in the graphic blow.

Electronic Message Center – Digital LED sign that has the capabilities of displaying words, images and figures.  This provides an opportunity to display new information for your business as often as you want.  EMC’s have many features such as user-friendly software, remote access, clear resolution and 3D graphics.

Monument Sign – A freestanding sign that is not attached to a building or structure and is typically low profile.  There is no open space between the ground and the sign with a structure that can be made out of masonry, wood or materials similar in appearance.

Logo Cabinet Sign – This is a common sign used on storefronts to showcase your logo.  The face material of the cabinet can range from acrylic or aluminum and have routed out face or routed with push thru letters.  These are typically illuminated with either LED’s or neon.

Window Vinyl – This type of advertising are decals or window graphics that are designed to adhere to the glass surface.  Vinyl on your storefront windows is a great way to display your branding as well as your products.

Directional Sign – Signs that indicate entrances and exits or giving directional information about goods and services of interest to the traveling public.  These can be illuminated or non-illuminated.

Halo Lit Letters – These are similar to a conventional channel letter except the lighting is exposed behind the letter.  Other names for a halo lit letter are reverse lit or back lit.

Awning Lettering – Awnings are a great architectural element that can dress up the front of your business.  They can provide shade and protect your customers from the rain.  The nice thing about awnings is they not only shield customers from the elements, but you can customize graphics that can be applied directly to the awning showcasing your branding.

Vinyl Mural Graphics – This is the same concept as window vinyl but can be on a larger scale.  They can be full wall wraps, partial wraps or die cut wall decals and lettering.  You can choose a focal wall within your space or partially wrap your lobby.

Projecting/Blade Sign – This type of sign can be mounted to your building or storefront pole or attached perpendicular to the surface of your building façade.  Projecting signs are an effective means of attracting foot traffic.

Neon Sign – These are electric signs lighted by long luminous gas-discharge tubes that contain rarefied neon or other gases.

A well designed sign package can intrigue customers and increase sales.

Channel Letters – Are a three-dimensional sign or letter fabricated from aluminum or acrylic and LED or neon lighting.   These signs are often 12” or taller per letter and internally illuminated offering great visibility.

Canopy Sign – Any sign that is a part of or attached to an awning, canopy, or other fabric, plastic, or structural protective cover (excluding a marquee) over a door, entrance, window, or outdoor service area.

Flat Cut Out Letters Flat-cut out lettering is a great option for many different types of businesses and can be installed as either interior or exterior signage. The variety of sizes, options and materials that are available with this type of sign make customization easy.

Arcade Sign –  a panel or cabinet that projects or hangs down from a canopy, soffit or ledge. Can have rigid or flexible (cable/chain) armatures.

Pylon Sign – Pole signs are typically supported by one or two poles located at a central entry point of shopping centers, malls, gas stations, car dealerships, commercial and industrial parks.  Pylon signs are helpful for companies that are located along highways or busy roadways.  Post & Panel Sign – Post and Panel signs consist of two posts and a single sign panel in between them. Typical Post and Panels tend to be economically designed with simple vinyl or metal posts and a clean sign face with little shaping.

Other Purchasing Concerns

As you can see, when it comes to signs, there are a variety of types, styles, and things to think about. However, not all buildings are created equal and each city and county have code that regulates signs. Let our consultants provide you with a design that achieves your goals and will be permissible by your jurisdiction. Contact us today to get started!

Target Local Audience With Customizable EMC Signs

Every business establishment finds the need to advertise their products, services, offers, events, etc., at various times of the year. In some cases, you just need to provide your customers with other business-related information. In all of these situations, you need some kind of signage to display that information, and this is where the EMC signs come into the picture.

 Benefits of EMC Signs 

Deliver creative messages to specific target audiences.

Today there is a wide variety of signage options that businesses can opt for. So what is the benefit of an electronic message center (EMC) sign? Let’s take a look:

  • Attracts Attention – When you want to catch the attention of motorists, you only have a few seconds to make an impression and catch their attention. EMC signs are available in a wide variety of illuminated styles. They are noticeable not just in the daytime, but at night as well
  • Cost-Effective Advertisement – EMC signs are dynamic advertising that you own and control, saving you on renting ad space in your local community
  • Customizable – Choose font, graphics, lights, and colors to perfectly reflect your brand
  • Versatile – Digital displays are suitable for use in both exterior and interior settings, and you can customize the message to match the tone of your brand
  • Direct Communication – You can change the messaging on EMC signs at a moment’s notice, allowing you to speak directly to passers-by or arriving clients. If there is a shared event happening, you can recognize and celebrate with your community using your EMC as your voice
  • Personalized Messages – All messages can be tailored and personalized to reflect your local clientele. How you communicate with people on their way to work is going to be different than how you communicate with people coming home from work and even the nighttime crowd.

A Sign of Attraction

Looking for ways to spruce up your business for the new year as things open back up? Signage is an easy, effective way to do that! Does the storefront of your business need a new look for the new year?  What kind of shape is your sign in?  According to the Sign Research Foundation, more than half the shoppers (on an average 54%) have driven by and failed to find a business because the sign was too small or unclear.   Signs that are too small or illegible can mean a missed opportunity.  Also, almost 2 in 5 shoppers say they have made quality assumptions about a business based on what your sign looks like.  Is it attractive, is it clear and in good condition?  We know 2020 was hard on many businesses, but 2021 can be the year for positive changes in the economy.  At BSC we have a team of talented salespeople and designers that are here to assist through the entire process of getting a more refreshed look and updating your signs.

Easy ways to improve the look of your business with signs

  • Check illumination – if your sign isn’t lighting 100%, let us fix it!
  • Are the faces of your sign in good shape? Replacement faces can be done for most signs
  • Have us paint bases or rusting cabinets
  • Repair any damaged or fading components
  • Vinyl on doors and windows – after time vinyl will crack and impact will fade.
  • Ready for a full rebrand? Choose a good partner (hopefully us) to assist you with permitting, fabrication, and installation of a new sign
  • New banner or open sign can let potential patrons know you are ready for business
