There are many signs to choose from when it comes to exterior signs for a business. At Sign Central, we want our clients to know about the different signs available, which may help them choose the best one for their business. Let’s look at some of the most common storefront signs to help businesses in Arlington and throughout Chicagoland boost their curb appeal, improve foot traffic, and increase profits.

Monument Signs

Monument and architectural signs help businesses and other entities tell passersby where they are located while identifying their property, and essentially increasing public exposure. Monument signs are incredibly versatile, making them the perfect exterior signs for business parks, health centers, buildings, apartments, retail stores, churches, senior living facilities, golf courses, and more. These signs can be created from a number of materials including aluminum and may feature LED panels to make the sign vibrant, day and night.  

Channel Lettering

In a recent blog post that you can view here, we spent a lot of time looking at channel lettering and the types of businesses that benefit significantly from these signs. Channel letter signs are three-dimensional graphic letters fabricated from sheet metal. These 3D letters are then mounted and displayed individually but which form a whole logo or brand. Channel letters are often made from aluminum because it is durable and will not rust, which is a great choice for exterior signage that can withstand the elements. Some of the most popular channel letter options that our team designs and fabricates at Sign Central are illuminated channel letters, which feature front-lit channels, reverse channel letters, and neon channel letters. These signs provide vibrant, well-lit signage that promotes a business day and night.

Building Directory Signage  

These outdoor wayfinding signs come in a variety of designs, materials, and sizes. These signs work really well for strip malls and retail centers or business centers with multiple businesses in them. Building directory signs are also great for churches, school campuses, and recreational facilities. While they are meant to direct traffic to a business, they are often quite informational and sometimes have a business’s name, hours of operation, and other pertinent information listed on them.  

These are only some of the most common storefront signs that can help improve awareness about a business or other public entity located here in Arlington.
