How to understand the different types of signs

I am sure you have read plenty of articles stressing the importance of having some sort of sign for your business. Signs are probably one of the most effective forms of advertisement. When it comes to searching for a sign things can get a little complicated due to the fact that there are literally tons of different signs to choose from. Though there are many signs to choose from there are basically only 3 main types of signs. Here are the 3 main types of signs you will have to choose from.

1. Building Mounted Signs – The first type of sign is the building mounted sign. Building mounted signs are signs that are attachedto some part of the building. For example the roof or the marquee. These signs can be either parallel or perpendicular to the building.

2. Freestanding Signs – The second type of sign is the freestanding sign. The freestanding sign does not attach to the building. It stands alone. Freestanding signs range from the small sidewalk sign to the big marquee that sits off the highway.

3. Interior Signs – The third type of sign is the interior sign. Interior signs are used in malls, movie theaters, office buildings and the like. Interior signs have two mail purposes. The first is to abide by local and federal law by providing guidance in a safe manner. Especially to those with disabilities. The second is to persuade buyers to make certain purchases.

Remember, the three main types of signs are Building mounted, Freestanding and Interior. There are several different types of signs under each one of those main categories. Do your research and make sure you get the best sign for your business. A sign is a very vital part of your business. It has the ability to make or break your business.
