Different Types of Signage That You Need for Your Retail Store

Posted on

If you own a retail store or are opening one for the first time, you will probably need to work directly with a sign company to order the necessary signs for your business. These are some of the different types of signs that you might need to purchase for your store.

Large, Tall Signs That Can Be Seen From the Road

Depending on where your business is located, you might be interested in installing large signs that are easily visible from the road or highway. This can be particularly useful if your business is in a tucked-away spot that might not be easy to see or if it's located near a busy highway.

Signs on the Exterior of Your Building

Of course, you will probably want to add signage to the exterior of your building so that people can see and identify your retail store with ease. Channel letters that spell out the name of your business are one great option, but there are other exterior signage options that are popular and that can work well, too.

Signs on Your Windows

In many cases, installing signs on your windows is a good way to show off the products that you have in stock in your store. You can also use window signage to advertise sales and other events. There are signs that can be customized and hung up in the windows, or you can order large banners that can be displayed on the exterior of your business. You can also order custom window decals that can be used in your windows without damaging your glass, too.

Signs Inside the Store

Even though you might think that most or all of the signs that you purchase for your business will need to be installed on the outside, you will probably want to purchase some retail signage to use inside the building as well. For example, you may want to post up signs that designate different sections of your store and the products that are sold in this section; this makes it easier for customers to find what they are looking for. You may also need directional signs that point toward the exits, restrooms, fitting rooms, and more.

As you can see, in the average retail store, it's normal to have multiple different types of signs. Luckily, there are sign companies out there that will discuss your options and needs and help with designing and making all of the signs that you need for your store.
