Say “YES!” To Dimensional Wall Letters

Posted by John Grigoli

Dimensional wall letters are just hard to turn down as an effective way to get your organization noticed. Great for both indoor and outdoor use, dimensional lettering creates a clean, sophisticated look. When installed professionally there’s the suggestion of establishment and permanence. Just say YES!

 When Northern Ohio Regional Multiple Listing Service (NORMLS) and Centralized Regional Information Service (CRISmls) decided to consolidate and combine to form a single organization, the merge entailed a name change: Yes-MLS. The newly consolidated service came with a new name and a new logo, which needed to be represented in their offices.
Dimensional Wall LettersAlready familiar with our work, Yes-MLS contacted us to create dimensional lettering to identify their building, as well as to create a directional sign for their driveway. We suggested routed PVC materials, painted to match their new corporate logo colors -- a bold red, black, and white.

We used the new Yes-MLS logo and rendered that in a photo to scale, based on our survey of measrements. Upon Yes-MLS’s approval of the design, we proceeded to obtain the necessary permits from the city for installation -- this is part of the service we provide. Once approved, and after permits were secured, we headed into fabrication for routing, painting, and finishing Yes-MLS’s dimensional graphics.

 Cleveland 3d  wall lettersOnce the fabrication process was completed, we headed to Yes-MLS for installation. Using their existing white wall as a backdrop, we drilled holes to affix the dimensional wall lettering; dimensional graphics have studs mounted on the back so that they can easily be attached to the surface.

The final product of Yes-MLS’s exterior signage is an eye-catching dimensional design with bold colors that stand out against the existing wall color. Sans serif text makes the company name and street address clear and easy to read for those driving by and perfectly communicates their new corporate identity. The best part of choosing dimensional wall lettering in PVC is that Yes-MLS’s signage will last for many years -- it’s a great low maintenance choice.

 If your Cleveland area business is ready to say “Yes!” to dimensional graphics, contact us today to work with our design team to create a design that works with your budget and clearly communicates what your business is all about.

Make sure your office signs convey the message and atmosphere you want customers and prospects to experience when they walk into your business.

Wall and Window Graphics for Cleveland BusinessesTo communicate with consumers, wall and window graphics for Cleveland businesses are an effective and versatile way to get your message across. We blog about the many ways in which wall signs inform those who are already in your store as well as how they attract new customers.

Wall Graphics for Your Business

Wall letters are an incredibly robust way to educate consumers, create a more interesting business environment, and strengthen your branding. If your business has a variety of different aisles, wall graphics can be used to let patrons know what is on each aisle. If you have products that are on somewhat high shelving, use wall graphics to point out where they are, so shoppers do not overlook them.

You can also provide differentiation between similar products with wall graphics. For example, if you run a store that sells video games, consider using wall graphics to designate which games are for various gaming systems. To list recurring events or weekly specials, a bar or restaurant can use a wall graphic. Remember that a blank wall is not doing your company any good, so do not be afraid to get creative.

Window Graphics Attract Customers
