Las Vegas Retail Signs

Las Vegas retail signs are widely used at businesses throughout the Las Vegas valley. When walking into a retail store, you are bombarded with printed signs to urge you to purchase a product or service. These retail signs are very successful in getting people to purchase products or services.

Point of purchase signs ( POP Signs) are everywhere.  I recently went to a convenience store to buy some gas for my vehicle and was overwhelmed with the amount of signs at the cashiers counter. There were coroplast and foam board signs displaying many candy bar companies, a soda company along with several signs for energy drinks.  Of course all these products were easily obtainable because they were in arms length while standing in line at the cashiers counter. Many people in front of me reached out to buy one of these products as they were waiting in line. Banner stands are also a excellent source of signage as observed in this article http://www.reliablecounter.com/blog/las-vegas-trade-show-sign-displays/ .

Las Vegas retail signs also includes outdoor signage such as sidewalk signs, and vinyl banners. Many businesses are learning the value of a simple economical banner displaying merchandise for sale on a wall or your building so that vehicle traffic driving by can see it. I know of a Italian restaurant that uses large vinyl banners to advertise food specials and when they have one of these banner specials, that particular food item triple in sales ! The restaurant simply rotates banners every 5 days so that the food item sale does not go stale. Sidewalk signs are also a great retail sign that is easy to display ( simply place in front of the store on a sidewalk) and can be changed out frequently so that people always have a fresh look at what is being offered on sale.

Las Vegas retail signs will bring additional business to your store at a very economical price and the return on investment is substantial.

 

 

Realtor Signs

Las Vegas Commercial Realtor MDO Wood Signs

Las Vegas commercial realtor MDO wood signs are used by GLVAR ( Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors) members to advertise their properties for sale or for lease in the local area. GLVAR members use these MDO wood signs because they are very large ( the two most popular sizes are the 4ft x 8ft  MDO wood sign and the 4ft x 4ft MDO wood sign ) and can contain a lot of information on the sign such as zoning, utilities on the property, square footage, a picture of the agent and contact information to get hold of the agent/broker.

Las Vegas commercial realtor MDO wood signs are basically a piece of 1/2 ” plywood with a resin overlay that helps it last in the outdoor weather. A vinyl print is applied over the sign and then laminated to help keep the inks resistant to the weather elements of Southern Nevada.  Realtors place these signs in front of vacant land and commercial properties to let people know they are for rent or for lease. The common size, the 4ft x 8ft real estate MDO sign , can contain information about the subject property or be as simple as ” For Sale” and a telephone number . Because they are vinyl signs applied to a wood substrate, you can also have logos and pictures printed on the signs as well. The larger 4ft x 8ft MDO wood signs usually require 3 4″ x 4″ posts for support and 4ft x 4ft MDO wood signs require 2 4″ x 4″ wood posts for support. It is essential that the post be firmly entrenched in the ground because of the high winds Las Vegas has.

Wood For Sale Signs in Vegas

Wood for sale signs are very easy to make when you want a heavy sign. Wood for sale signs in Vegas have generally been replaced with the lighter aluminum signs called e-panels or B-bond panels. They are 2 sided aluminum signs with a filler substrate in the middle that have been bonded together to make a solid, yet lightweight sign panel.  Yet, the classic wood sign has been around for a long time and is very appreciated by many business people according to Ed Brown( who can be found at https://community.articulate.com/users/edbrown-17a7cbd3-d271-46b5-a0b2-513ce8035d3a  or https://medium.com/@posterheadgraphics.

Wood signs are generally about 25% more expensive than aluminum composite signage but yet have advantages over the lighter aluminum signs. In Las Vegas where at times it gets very windy, a heavier wood sign is a blessing because it makes for a sturdier sign. These wood signs are often used by commercial realtors for signage in front of commercial buildings that are available for rent or for lease. These wood signs can be various sizes to accommodate all the information that is need about the property for lease such as zoning, utilities, square footage, etc.  While the wood sign is made f wood and then subject to the elements of the weather, it does have a life expectancy that is shorter than an aluminum sign, but yet can still last several years, even under the harsh conditions of the weather of Southern Nevada.

Wood for sale signs are not hard to make and can be made very quickly, often in just a day or two. A vinyl application is printed and then applied to the wood substrate and then laminated to help protect the print from the sun and other natural elements. These wood signs can then last a long time. Contact a sign company in Las Vegas to see how these wood signs can help you.

Wood Signs

Wood signs are old school material to make large and small  custom signs. There are many other substrates that have been introduced in the last few years that can outperform and outlast the wood signs. Aluminum signs are a more common substrate now used in the sign industry as the aluminum is not subject to weathering like MDO wood signs.

Aluminum signs are cheaper to make than wood signs. In addition, the aluminum signs will last a lot longer. Both the wood signs and aluminum signs use a vinyl application ( full color print that includes logos, pictures and photos) and then a laminate is placed on top of the full color vinyl print so to add extra sun protection. The extra sun protection is necessary in places like Las Vegas because of the extreme heat and prolonged sunlight the signs are subject to. A interesting fact is that a sign that faces north in Las Vegas will last a much longer time than a sign facing west because of the exposure to the long sunlight.

Wood signs cost about 25% more than an aluminum sign. A typical 4ft x 4ft aluminum sign is about $99 and a 4ft x 8ft aluminum sign is about $175.00 in Las Vegas. Wood signs costs are about $125.00 for a 4ft x 4ft sign and about $210 for a 4ft x 8ft sign. Some people prefer the heavier sign, however, when installed properly, the aluminum sign will last longer and look better than the wooden sign.

Wood signs are used extensively in the commercial real estate field where they are placed on vacant land and in front of commercial buildings where they are used as a way to convey ” For Lease” and “For Rent” on.

Wood signs are available in Las Vegas at sign companies throughout the Vegas valley at very good rates and can be made in just a few days.

The signs are place on the subject property using 4″ x 4″ posts, usually 2 posts for a 4ft x 4ft wooden sign and 3 posts for a 4ft x 8ft wooden sign. The posts are then sunk into the ground ( but not permanent with cement to avoid having to get a sign permit ) and then the sign is aligned and screwed onto the posts.
