Most popular lighted signs for your business

Business signs can help form a customer's first impression of your company, so you want to make sure it is a good one! Lighted business signs are eye-catching and can help you to attract customers’ attention and potential business. The last thing you want is for your brand new sign to get ignored, and making sure your sign is bright and visible can help to avoid that. 

The experts from our custom sign shop, VitalSigns, go over some of the more popular lighted signs you can get for your business. 

1. Channel letters

Channel letters are signs that are made of individual letters strung together to spell out the name of your company. They are some of the most popular signage options for companies because they are easily customized to meet brand guidelines in regards to font and colors. You can get reverse-lit or halo-lit channel letters for a sophisticated and unique lit up look. With these channel letters, every letter is illuminated from the background, making it easily readable even from a distance. These are perfect for metal letter signs and make your sign noticeable day and night! 

2. Electronic message center

Electronic message centers are the most modern choice for a lit-up sign. These digital signs are great at attracting new customers with their easily programmable content. They can display special promotions, the company name, product pictures and even short videos can be projected.  Another similar option to the electronic message center is the monochrome LED sign. These similarly use an LED screen, but they only project messages in a single color. 

3. Externally lit signs

These signs are illuminated by an external light source. This means that you would get a normal unlit sign made by a custom sign shop like VitalSigns and then install other lights separately that would illuminate your sign. This is usually achieved with either top lighting, ground lighting or recessed lighting that is hidden away. People do not see the bulbs, but they do see your sign! 

4. Monument signs

These are large, freestanding signs that are usually placed outside the entrance of a business. They usually are closer to the ground, have a structural base and are supported by bricks or poles. They can either be illuminated or non-illuminated, but are perfect in design to be able to incorporate an LED panel. Since monument signs are typically placed in the front of businesses too, they are a good candidate for external lighting, so that your entrance projects a safe and welcoming light. 

5. Directional signage

While this is another sign that can be illuminated or not, it can be in your business’s best interest to make sure your directional signage is lit. This can help customers to find the entrances and exits easily, as well as direct traffic in an easy and straightforward manner.
