In any retail an attractive and well thought out shop sign is vital in the success of the business. A good sign is what differentiates you from your key competitors and can be the number one way to attract passing trade. There are number of key elements that should feature in a good shop sign design.
The key element in sign design is simplicity. People travelling past your shop must be able to see and read your sign quickly and easily. Crowding the sign with too much information can make it too difficult to read clearly therefore rendering ineffective. Generally the fewer words the sign displays the better and so the ideal design will contain just the shop name and your logo. An exception to this rule can be when the shop name doesn't make it immediately clear what the shop sells. In this case it is worthwhile for the sign to incorporate further information.
Two further major considerations in any sign design are layout and colour. Try optimising on colours, such as black and white, this is a great way to make your sign stand out from the crowd. Keep the sign easy to read. The sign should also be set with sufficient space between each letter. It is recommended that as much as 40% of a sign should be made up of white / blank space.
Ideally your sign should reinforce the overall presentation of your shop interior. The most effective way to do this is through simple colour matching. If your shop interior is, for example green and white, then a sign consisting of similar colours is likely to be the wisest choice. The matching of colours is a great way to make you more identifiable and memorable.
Many shop owners overwhelmingly underestimate the value and selling power of their shop sign. Your sign is the first impression that you present to the public and can be the deciding factor in whether they choose to come in. A good sign from South London Signs can generate impulse buying while a poor sign can cost you a great amount in lost sales. We have sucessfully completed hundreds of signs in Sydney, and across the NSW and look forward to helping you with your enquiry.
