Every Business Needs Signs.

Signs are everywhere in our society. Signs tell us where to go, inform us where we are at,  let us know what products or services are available and signs tell us about everything in between.

Businesses use signs to let us know who they are.  Without signs, all businesses would look alike and we would have a hard time differentiating them from one another.  It is a necessity to have a sign in front of your business.  There i a old saying in the sign business, ” A Business Without A Sign Is A  Sign Of No Business “. This old adage is a truism in the business world.

Signs take many forms.  There a banner sign, window signs, glass signs, pylon signs, channel letter signs, monument signs, for sale signs and many, many more.  In order to sell a vehicle, most people put a “for sale ” sign in their vehicles window to let people know that it is  for sale. Real estate professionals use for sale and for rent signs to let people know that a property is available for rent or sale.

Businesses use banner signs to hang on the sided of their stores to let passing motorists and pedestrians know that a product or service is available through them. Stores use window signs to put vinyl lettering or window vision on their windows to let people know what type of business they are and what type of products or services they offer.

Many people use their personal or company vehicles as a sign by placing door magnets on the vehicle, vinyl lettering on the back glass or some people choose to wrap their car or truck in a total wrap that advertises there products.  These types of vehicle wraps usually cost a few thousand dollars and can last for about 5 years.  many people wrap a new car and then years later, take the wrap off and the paint is as fresh as the day it came off the showroom floor.

The cost of large cheap outdoor banner is approximately $2.00 a square foot. So, a 5 foot x 10 foot banner made with vinyl banner material would cost about $100.00.  The smaller the banner the smaller the price.  These cheap outdoor banners normally come grommeted every two feet at the top and bottom for easy hanging.

Cheap Pylon Sign Lettering For The Do It Yourselfers.

In Las Vegas, most businesses have a pylon or sign cabinet  that needs lettering when they move into a business or decide to change their lettering. Cheap pylon sign lettering is available for the do it yourselfers.  To get cheap pylon sign lettering, it takes a little planning and a little work and you can save hundreds of dollars.

The first thing to check when lettering your own pylon sign is to look at the height of the pylon sign.  If the pylon sign is 30 feet in the air, I would strongly recommend you hire someone with the proper equipment to do the job safely. I have been up on a ladder at that height and had wind gusts almost knock me off the ladder and I have occasionally extended myself a little too far and put myself at risk.  Determine your comfort level when working at heights.

The next item on the list is to measure the pylon sign opening for your cheap pylon sign lettering.  Measure from the inside to inside on the height and length. I say this, because sometimes it is more practical to apply the vinyl lettering to the pylon sign rather than take down the plastic face and apply it on the ground or in your work shop. If you do decide to take down the plastic pylon face, it is usually a couple of 1/4 inch nuts holding the end cap on the pylon sign.  Simply remove the end cap and slide the plastic face out.  If it is a long plastic face, be careful to support it while sliding it out.

Once you have the pylon face out, clean or remove the previous vinyl lettering from the pylon face and clean it thoroughly. You can go to a sign shop, craft shop or another place that sells pre-cut vinyl lettering and then apply it to your sign face and re-install the sign.

Vegas vinyl banners are increasingly popular way of advertising products or services on the stores inner and outer walls. Vegas vinyl banners are cheap and easy to install.

Many stores are selecting certain products or services and adverting these specials on Vegas vinyl banners.  A perfect example is a vinyl banner I saw hanging on the outer wall of a store that advertised  “  Large Pizza’s with 2 Toppings For $9.99 “  This was a fantastic way for a pizza place to get the message out about their pizza special in a large way. What was so important was the fact that their store is located on a busy street and virtually thousands of vehicles passing on that street had the potential of seeing that banner and maybe buying a pizza.  That pizza may or may not be purchased on that day, but may be purchased within a few weeks.

These types of Vegas vinyl banners are printed on a 13 ounce banner material with the use of large format printers. These printers print directly onto the vinyl banner material with eco solvent and latex inks which last a very long time in the Las Vegas heat. Not only  do these types of inks last a long time, they are very bright and vivid in colors.

The cost of these Vegas vinyl banners is not very much at all.  A Vegas vinyl banner can be purchased for about $2.00 a square foot and many times less than that if the print or sign shop is having a banner special.  These banners come grommeted top and bottom for easy hanging. The store owners can easily hang the vinyl banners themselves or have an employee do it. Vegas vinyl banners is a very cost effective form of advertising.

Business Sign Lettering In Las Vegas.

Its very easy to do your own business sign lettering in Las Vegas. Many new businesses do not have the money to hire  sign companies to go and change their business signage.  Many of these business signs can be changed out by the new business and save a lot of money.

One of the steps in opening your new business is to determine what type of signage is available.  If you have a pylon sign in the front of the building that you share with other businesses or may have exclusively to yourself, you can easily change out the vinyl lettering on the sign.  Many times these types of signs have a plastic face or lexan face with cut vinyl on them.  On the backside of the lexan or plastic fascia, light bulbs shine through at night to light up the cut vinyl on the sign.  During the day, the cut vinyl is visible against the white plastic fascia.  It is very easy to change out this vinyl and do the business sign lettering yourself.

The first step is to get the measurements of the open area of the fascia. That will allow you to determine what size letters and how many letters you can fit in the opening.  While many people feel it is necessary to put as much information on the sign, sometimes simplicity is the best solution.  For example, would it be better to have ” PIZZA” in big letters or put many different products you sell in much smaller business sign lettering ?  Sometimes you can make it too cluttered so people cannot read it in the time they are motoring past your store.

Once you get the measurements of the pylon sign, simple design the business sign lettering to fit your dimensions.  Go to a print shop, hobby shop or sign store and have them cut your vinyl so that you can install it on your existing sign.

Sidewalk Spinner Signs Get Attention of Passing Motorists.

Sidewalk spinner signs are a fantastic way to get the attention of passing motorists and pedestrians.  For those of you that don’t know what they are called, people that hold signs on sidewalks to get attention of passing motorists are called sign spinners.  In actuality, they are becoming a very effective form of human advertisement.

While driving the other day in Las Vegas, I noticed several people twirling and spinning sidewalk spinner signs. These  sidewalk spinner signs were promoting a lunch special at the local café, a pizza special and lastly, a cell phone service.  Of all the advertisement I visually saw on the way home, these sidewalk spinner signs really made an impression.  You cannot help but notice a person drawing attention to themselves while standing on a sidewalk.  It is human nature to be looking around while driving or at a stop light.  These sidewalk spinner signs are just made to grab your attention in situations like these.

The most common sidewalk spinner signs are made with lightweight material so that the sign spinners are not worn out after a few minutes of twirling their signs.  The most common size of a spinner sign is a 2ft x 4ft and made with 10mm coroplast.  The 10 mm coroplast allows for a sturdy, but lightweight spinner sign.  Sometimes these signs will have an arrow on them directing the attention of the viewer to the store where the sale is taking place.

The sidewalk spinner signs are not very expensive. The cost of a single sided 10 mm coroplast spinner sign of a 2ft x 4ft size is around $50.00

The fact that there are so many sidewalk spinner signs on the streets are  testimony to their effectiveness as a viable form of advertising. Local sign shops or print shops are where these advertising treasures can be purchased.
