custom signsYou’re planning the launch of your Bay Area business. This should be an exciting time in your life, but you’ve been brooding over the fact that you don’t have a sign to properly identify your brand. You want something unique and have a few ideas in mind, but the only art you’ve ever created involved doodling in a notebook.

The good news is, there are professionals who can do the hard work so you don’t have to. Since 1969 Golden Gate Sign Company has been helping Bay Area entrepreneurs enhance visibility. As a San Francisco sign company, we’ve found the following to be effective when customizing signage.

Have an Eye-Catching Design

If you’re considering custom signage, chances are you already have an attractive design that will turn heads. However, it’s not enough to draw admiration; you want to your design to fit your business. If you own a café, choose an elegant type font and include an image of a cup of coffee. Or, if you’re an up-and-coming tech startup from Silicon Valley, try a clean design with your company name and logo against a white backdrop. Of course, if you don’t have something in mind, our team of experts would be delighted to create a customized sign design for your business.

Select a Style

Along with the design, you need to select the type of signage that reflects your business needs. You’re going to want something that not only fits your brand but also suits your location, facility and other considerations. Own a creative agency in downtown San Francisco? Represent yourself with a beautiful vinyl banner that any passerby can see. Opening a trendy new nightclub or bar? Try an awning or neon sign that will make it stand out from the rest. There are an overwhelming amount of options to choose from, so it’s best to find something that suits your business well.

Choose the Right Material

Lastly, you’ll need to find a material that can withstand the elements. If you live in a rainier area, you’ll want to avoid a medium density overlay (MDO) sign because, without proper care, it will soak in water and warp over time. Currently, alumalite is becoming one of the most popular materials in the sign industry. It’s a strong, aluminum composite panel that won't swell, corrode, or rot after prolonged water exposure. The material is lightweight, and it gives the user the outdoor durability of aluminum combined with the firmness of MDO.

Now that your blueprint is created, it’s time to sit back and let the professionals at Golden Gate Sign handle the manufacturing, instillation, and maintenance of your custom sign.
