Posted by on Mar 13, 2018 in A-Frame Signs, Blog, Wayfinding Signs | Comments Off on Top 5 Wayfinding Signs Alpharetta GA Business Owners Cannot Do Without!

There is a restaurant reality show on one of the many food-related cable channels. It revolves around the idea that the host visits out-of-the-way eateries that are hidden gems. Do you know what all these locations have in common? No signage. Now, if you run an established restaurant with a loyal clientele that handles your word-of-mouth marketing, you can get away with a little sign-related subterfuge. But if you are trying to out-market the competitor down the street, you need the kinds of wayfinding signs Alpharetta GA, restaurateurs and other business owners rely on. Effective Wayfinding Signs Make Your Business Easy to Locate It is interesting to note that these signs do not all look the same. In fact, the most successful business owners combine various types for best results. Examples abound. A-frames. The A-frame is the quintessential wayfinding sign. You place it right into the foot traffic in front of your place. Choose a model with removable facings, which lets you change the marketing message at any time. Because the signs slow pedestrians down, they have time to take in your message as well as your company’s name and logo. Even if they do not stop in today, they might make a note to do so tomorrow. Building directories. It can get confusing when there are offices in multiple wings of a building. It is even worse if you are doing business out of a location where the building had several remodels or add-ons. Now, corridors are linking to hallways, and clients routinely get lost. Choose building directories that you mount on each floor. Add arrows to the names, which make wayfinding even easier. Post and panel signs as well as dimensional letters. Are there multiple buildings on your property? Do you receive deliveries in one area while welcoming clients to the business office at another location? Make it easy for those pulling into your parking lot. Post and panel signs direct clients to parking areas close to where they need to do business. In the meantime, they direct delivery drivers safely around the location. Dimensional letters provide names or functions of the buildings right there on the facades. Channel letters. Did you know that building signs are part of the wayfinding setup? They signal to prospective buyers where they can find you. They succeed in doing so by combining your corporate color selection with fonts and symbols. In short, the signs look exactly like what the shopper saw when visiting your company’s website or running across your Facebook page. Buying Wayfinding Signs Alpharetta GA, Customers Respond To Which signage solution is right for you? In many ways, it depends on the makeup of your business’ exterior. If you are hidden away between buildings, you need more emphasis on street-level wayfinding. If you operate an office inside a tower, your clients will depend on interior signage.

Channel Letters for Wayfinding, Marketing, and Branding

Posted by on Feb 27, 2018 in Blog, Channel Letter Signs, Wayfinding Signs | Comments Off on Channel Letters for Wayfinding, Marketing, and Branding

When the Marines call, you answer. This also goes for our sign shop. When we received an inquiry from the Marines Officer Selection Office to discuss channel letters for wayfinding, marketing, and branding, we responded. We met with the client to review the setup of the signage at the new location. Channel Letters Illuminate a Wayfinding Message We worked with the client to get the agency’s iconic font and symbol just right. Next, we formed the logo by creating an independent lightbox cabinet. Finally, we made the letters, which light up after dark. We placed them on top of another box cabinet that features the function of the office. The combination of the lettering, symbol, and informative details now assists the Marines with wayfinding, advertising, and brand communication. Lit Channel Letters Provide Options There are different types of illumination you might choose. Front lit. The front-lit channel letter is the one most commonly chosen by our clients. These signs emphasize the color display though bold illumination that makes the hues come to life after dark. Halo lit. For a sophisticated presentation, consider the back-lit option. Here, you let the light escape through the back, reflect off the wall, and bathe the individual letters in a halo of illumination. The look is upscale, elegant, and emphasizes the font of your branding. Combination. When you want your cake and eat it, too, we recommend a combination of both choices. Increase the numbers of LEDs to prevent any illumination loss. Installation Choices Meet Your Façade’s Needs Many clients prefer a flush mount. Doing so makes the letters blend in perfectly with the façade. But there are some cases where this installation method will not work. For example, if it is not possible to get behind the façade to hook up the electrical components, we may need to look for a different mounting method. In this case, we suggest a raceway setup. It consists of an elongated box that holds all the electrical components. Installation is easier on the façade since we only need to drill a few holes. To let the box blend in better with the wall, we ensure a perfect color match. Some clients like this display because it emphasizes the three-dimensional nature of the presentation. Integrating Your Logo with the Display Take a page from the playbook of the Marines and select a stand-alone lightbox cabinet for the symbol. Typically, we ensure that the logo is right next to the lettering to facilitate brand awareness and recognition among customers. Another option is the presentation of your symbol as a wall graphic. Does Your Company Still Need Channel Letters for Wayfinding, Marketing, and Branding? Do not miss opportunities for displaying your brand. Our graphic artists can help you put together a building sign that catches the eyes of passersby. They may stop in on impulse, which is excellent news for any retailer or restaurateur. Another great option is the installation of channel letters for introducing a new brand message. When you discuss your signage needs with our experts, we can help you find the right setup for your building and...

To make it easier for visitors to the location to find the entrance to the venue, the center’s management team contacted our sign shop to discuss the overhaul of a monument sign in McDonough GA.

The lobby area of the Peachtree Tower had a problem. Visitors to the location had a difficult time finding their ways around. At the same time, locating wayfinding signage that would fit in perfectly with the overall atmosphere of the venue was difficult. This was when our sign shop got the call to discuss product options. Wayfinding with Dimensional Letters in Atlanta GA After meeting with the client, we suggested the use of custom painted aluminum letters. These are dimensional letters, which are lightweight. Because we could adjust their sizing and spacing, it was possible to make them fit in perfectly with already existing architectural style elements. We went ahead and created letters with a black paint job that now identify Peachtree Tower as well as the North and South Towers. They stand out visually with black against white color presentations. Concurrently, they fit in perfectly with the overall look and feel of the venue. Other Wayfinding Signage Solutions Dimensional letters were an excellent option for this project. They ensured that the signs would not detract from the interior décor. Depending on your needs, you might benefit from other signage solutions. Acrylic boards. We can apply an imprinted overlay to painted acrylic boards, which allow for the presentation of your messages. Another option is the routing of the details. Of course, if you have your heart set on dimensional letters, we can mount them to one of these boards as well. Acrylic boards are ideal for interior and exterior applications. Post and panel signs. For parking lot wayfinding needs, consider the installation of post and panel signs. Shape the boards into arrows, which enhance your message. By starting your communication with the customer early, you prevent frustration along the way. A happy customer who feels at ease with your venue’s setup is more likely to return. Retractable banner stands. For temporary wayfinding needs, we recommend banners. Retractable banner stands let you store the vinyl products until you need them.

Atlanta Namadwaar Welcomes the Faithful with Dimensional Letters in Cumming GA

Posted by on Feb 1, 2018 in Blog, Church Signs, Dimensional Letter Building Signs, Wayfinding Signs | Comments Off on Atlanta Namadwaar Welcomes the Faithful with Dimensional Letters in Cumming GA

Located at 239 Atlanta Road, the Atlanta Namadwaar opened its doors in November of 2017. To prepare the prayer house for the visiting faithful, the organization’s planners contacted the business sign specialists at Meridian Signs and Graphics to discuss the design, manufacture, and installation of dimensional letters in Cumming GA. Dimensional Letters for Wayfinding We met with the client to discuss the scope of the project. We learned that the signage would go immediately above an entry door, which features a half circle bit of wall space. We adjusted the sizing of the lettering to be sufficiently large for effective wayfinding while still providing a visually pleasing display that maximizes the use of the area. Our technicians painted the material in charcoal gray, which contrasts very well with the light gray entry wall color. Now, the entrance to the prayer house is easy to find and looks attractive. Meridian Signs and Graphics Specializes in Church Signage It is no accident that the operators of the Atlanta Namadwaar contacted our sign shop for assistance. We have a well-established track record of creating a broad range of signage solutions for a variety of faith communities in the area. Printed canvas signs for the foyer. Case in point is the Highlands Church in Cumming. We worked with the team from this faith community to put together canvas prints that would welcome guests and new members to the foyer of the building. Dimensional letters for interior walls. When working with the First Baptist Church, we designed 3D wall signage using dimensional letters rather than vinyl graphics. Our technicians created the products by using acrylic that they painted in a variety of different colors. The product looks attractive and inviting for members of the children’s ministry. Interior channel letters. For the middle school ministry at the Browns Bridge Church, we created a couple of sets of interior channel letters. They transform the way that the interior looks. Moreover, these signs make a great impression on the young teens, who come to the venue for meetings and lessons. Remember that Excellent Signage Starts on the Exterior Of course, these signage solutions work so well because the faith communities have invested in excellent building signs. Without the right combination of interior and exterior markers, it is impossible to attract the foot traffic that you are looking for. Dimensional letters in Cumming GA, are good options when you do not need illumination for the sign. For example, when there are already façade lights in place, you typically do not need to double up with independently lit building markers. That said, some clients prefer to have signage that does light up. This includes lightbox cabinets and channel letters. The latter are examples of the ultimate dimensional letter display. Choose from front lit, halo lit, or combination lit displays. Electrical cabinets typically present as a rectangular box that features your church’s information alongside any taglines, sayings, or other specific messages you want visitors to see. When you are ready to add new signage to your church or related building, we can help. Meridian Signs and Graphics serves the business communities...
