Signs Of Success, What To Consider For Exterior Signs

Posted by John Grigoli

Jun 18, 2020 4:42:49 PM

If you are planning on new exterior building signs, there is a process to work through to determine your budget and scope for completing a successful project. You can't cut corners on this as you need to be seen, at the same time, it has to look good. That comes through when the right sign company is helping you. Below are some of the issues to consider. 

Cleveland Lighted Letters

Where does the sign need to go on the building or property?

In many cases it is obvious, if your opening a new store front, it simply goes on the front to identify your location. In other cases, there could opportunities to place 2 signs for visibility from 2 different views, say one on each side of the corner. Or maybe one on the front and the other on the back of the building. It can be smaller but it can be effective.

Style?

In many situations, clients know what they want, but if we are helping guide a decision, we would consider the logo, the culture of the business, landlord rules, and the city parameters, and structure will many times determine the direction.

Channel Letter Sign

Size?

This factor is determined mostly by city ordinance, location on the building or ground, distance from the average user to see it and the budget. It is also dependent on how bug the owner wants it!

Lights or No lights?

For most restaurants or retail establishment signs, this is an automatic yes. Most of the time there is already power located at the sign spot so there's not a big expense to run wiring.

Cleveland Sign

As you can see, the situation needs to be evaluated from various angles in order to get the right sign for your business so it supports the big picture business strategy. Contact Epic Signs & Graphics today for a consultation, we'll get you pointed in the right direction.

Vehicle Graphics For Fleets, Do's & Dont's

Posted by John Grigoli

Jun 11, 2020 8:20:44 AM

Branding your fleet, whether large or small, there are ways to efficiently manage the design and production process so price is efficient and your mobile advertising is effective.

Fleet Graphics

Straight or Slanted?

Logo style, straight or slanted? Logos are not created with sign company production and install in mind that's for sure. Murphy's law dictates we will be given a square style logo and asked to place it in a rectangular space, happens every time! But we figure it out. An effective approach is to angle the logo or some other main art so it reduces the stress of making sure it is perfectly even. With vehicles we are dealing with uneven spaces, recesses curves, you name it.

Wrap Design

Vehicle Color

Using similar or the same printed colors as the vehicle will hide install sins. This is not always possible but it helps. Wrapping a white car with black vinyl can easily become a challenge and adds time to make sure we trim absolutely spot on.

Vehicle Fleet Graphics

Full or Partial Wrap?

Do you need to wrap the whole car? We offer this technique as a way to reduce the strain on the budget. Our great designers can design in such a way as to wrap 3/4 of the car for example but make it look like a full wrap. This also helps especially to have the car the same color as the wrap. See our examples.

 

Vehicle availability

This is always a challenge. Busy operations usually do not plan to have a vehicle sitting around waiting to have a wrap done. But the reality is, streaming a vehicle through one after another is the way to roll out a branding program that will avoid delays and production bottle necks. Having vehicle arrive on time, washed and free of defects will allow installers to make sure vehicle is ready ahead of the install dry, clean and ready.

Fleet Graphics Maintenance

If your looking for a roll out to brand a fleet, call Epic Signs & Graphics for an expert consultation plan to make it happen!

Halo Lights Add A Nice Touch To Interior Wall Letters

Posted by John Grigoli

May 27, 2020 3:09:43 PM

When considering updating your interior business areas, consider lighting as an option. Be aware, however, we need to plan for power in order to get the LED's to actually light up! Not a lot of power, but never the less, it takes electricity, and usually on a switch too!

Lighted letters Cleveland

 

A halo illuminated LED glow emanating from the back of the letter adds a nice touch to interior wall letters. The problem is, many people forget to plan for that little important detail. In addition, the trick to making this type of sign work is to hide the wiring. In fact the industry has matured to the point that it is expected we provide lights almost magically. When people observe a beautiful sign on a wall with a nice halo around the letters, it is forgotten what it took to make it happen. Not only do we need to get power to the sign location, we need to power every letter. And they all need to be protected with a power supply in the loop....and we need to go through walls! Or at least an electrician does.

 

This is where Epic Signs & Graphics comes in handy. We have various solutions to make your logo and/or letters look special.

Wall mounted letters

In order to make it look like the logo or letters are "floating" on the wall, we will need to have wires coming out directly behind the symbol. Most of the time we do not have that luxury, so if we can locate a source of power nearby in the ceiling, it could be pulled down through the wall to the right location. That takes a bit of luck and determination and skill because usually there are many things in the way such as insulation or or interior wall framing.

 

Pan or shoe box sign?

I've encountered a couple different terms in the industry using either one of these names. It is a way to make a sign usually out of metal. that is bent on every side to create a sort of wall around each edge. When turned over, it resembles a frying pan. We used that trick for a manufacturing company called Hamrick. We arrived on site with a totally custom pre-assembled sign so all we had to do was mount angle iron to the wall and screw the pan to the angle iron. In this case, the electrical outlet was already in place, so all we had to do was plug in the sign and mount our sign.

Hamrick Lighted Wall Sign

These are just a couple little tricks Epic Signs & Graphics has used to help clients get their indoor space to look, well...Epic. So give us a call for advice and plans to get your place lit up!

Wall Letters For Dentist

Consultative?

It begins with the first meeting. Your provider should listen and understand what you are looking for while considering budget, colors and your style. They should understand your business goals and what your trying to communicate to your audience. If they are not asking questions then....

Design capability?

If your sales person is not providing a look at materials, looking over color options and generally guiding you to a decision, then you may need to look around for another company. If they have not provided feedback about suggested images, how it will print on various medias, type of finish, then.....

Fun Dental Wall Cleveland

Service?

Is your sign company providing updates as the process moves along? Are they upfront if they are behind schedule or if they think time lines do not allow them to produce on time? In other words, honest. If you feel lonely along the way, then.....

Install?

Did the installer show up on time? Did they know the details of the job? Did they review the plan with you? Did the sign company call ahead before install day to confirm? When you are evaluating sign companies and they do not respond well to this type of service, then....

 

Then call Epic Signs & graphics! If you truly want a service oriented experience with a consultative approach, one that provides superior service and high quality printing and expert installation, than look no further than Epic Signs & Graphics!

Vehicle Wraps - Partial Wraps to Save on the Budget

Posted by John Grigoli

Feb 16, 2020 9:04:00 PM

Vehicle Graphics Cleveland

Are you looking for a cost-effective marketing method that gets maximum visibility?

If yes, then car wraps are a good choice. However, going for a full car wrap can prove to be pretty expensive. One alternative to full vehicle wraps that are as effective as them but cost-friendly are partial vehicle wraps. You will get great visibility of your marketing campaign while at the same time save money that you would have spent on full vehicle wraps. In short, a partial vehicle wrap is an excellent choice. Both small companies and large corporations use these partial wraps to create a professional marketing look and convey a great marketing message.

Here are some economic benefits of using partial wraps.

1. Less Vinyl

First things first, the biggest financial advantage of partial wraps is the fact that it uses lesser vinyl material. A partial wrap only covers between 25-75% of the painted surface of the vehicle. Using high-performance vinyl for vehicles can be very expensive. Therefore, you will save money if you use less vinyl.

 

2. Shorter Installation Time

Another benefit of using partial wraps is that it takes less time for them to be installed as compared to full wraps. Full vehicle wraps require detailed work. The installers have to work around curves and remove hardware or trim around door handles, headlights, front and rear of the vehicle. This is thorough work and takes a lot of time and effort. The installation time increases for a full vehicle wrap.

Partial wraps, on the other hand,does not require as much detailed work simply because there are less obstacles. Because of this the process is comparatively simpler and less time-taking as compared to full vehicle wraps. Thus, choosing a partial wrap over a full vehicle wrap can be a great decision.

3. Saves Money on Fleet Advertising

If you are looking for a smart and cost-effective solution for fleet advertising, then partial wraps are the way to go. You need to approve the design of the wrap and simply get it through to production and installation. All of this can be done by a simplified process which will not only save you time and effort but also money. Therefore, partial wraps are preferred by companies that are looking for smart fleet advertising solutions.

Exterior Building Signs – Factors You Need to Consider

Posted by John Grigoli

Feb 4, 2020 8:30:00 AM

Exterior building signs are a must-have for businesses. They help you get the attention of your potential and existing customers and help get your message across to onlookers. Signs, interior and exterior, offer you a way to communicate with your clients. Outdoor business signs can be used to make a lasting impression on customers. They are likely to visit your store if you entice them enough with your outdoor signs.

There are many factors to consider when choosing exterior building signs. In this blog post, we will cover all these important things to consider when choosing an exterior sign for your business. This will help you stay within the rules and regulations while also helping you create a great impact on your audience.

Building Sign Cleveland Ohio


1. City Ordinance

First things first, you need to check with your local authorities about the kinds of exterior signs that you are allowed to put up for your business. Different states and cities have different rules regarding outdoor signs and you must abide by these rules if you wish to avoid any legal action taken against you. Check with your local government and get written permission for your outdoor signs. This will save your time and efforts and will also help you put up a sign that is legally allowed by the authorities.

2. Size

The next thing to consider when putting up an outdoor building sign is the size. Much of this is determined by the above mentioned city ordinance and also by the budget. Bigger signs make a bigger impact to onlookers obviously but another consideration is distance form the road or the majority of onlookers going by your business. Finally, the style and number of letters in a business name and slogan will drive the size as well.

3. Illumination

Have you thought about how you are going to illuminate your exterior building signs at night? While most signs these days are illuminated from inside the sign, there are options to have spot lights involved located exterior of the sign from top or bottom.

4. Anchoring

How a sign will be installed and location are big considerations when you put up an outdoor sign for your business. The style of sign and where the electrical power is located will greatly determine where the sign can be placed and the type of fasteners that will be used.

5. Building Owner

Do not overlook the fact that the owner of the building needs to approve of the project. Many times this is assumed it is not a problem, however there are landlords that do not want excessive holes drilled or just want to make it is done right by a reputable company.

As you can see there are a number of factors to consider before decided what type of sign is best for your situation. If you are looking for the right answers to your outdoor sign solution for your business, get in touch with Epic Signs & Graphics for a free consultation.
