Common Mistakes With Shop Front Signs
If you are investing in new signage for your business then it stands to reason you are going to want to get things right. Buying new signs for any business is not cheap, so you’ll want to do what you can to make sure that everything is done correctly. There are many common errors made, which you should look out for!
Your shop front sign is often the first impression that people get of your business – so you’ll want to make sure it’s a good one! It is a good idea to double check and check again any spelling on your sign before you go ahead and commit to getting it made – if possible, maybe get someone to check the spelling of it for you too? The last thing you want is a lovely sign hung at the front of your store with spelling mistakes through it.
The information that you include on your sign must be correct – wrong opening times will confuse customers and if you have the wrong phone number or contact information then any customers who may be interested in your products will not be able to get in touch with you!
It can be tempting to go for the cheapest shop front signs when you look at getting them made and fitted but this doesn’t always give you the best value for money. You need to be sure of high quality products – the last thing you want is a sign that is going to fall down, have letters missing or start to fade in the run. Check with the company their guarantees and what products they offer before you commit to using them for your shop front sign needs.
When we spend money on anything it stands to reason that we want to get value for our money – you aren’t going to get this if your shiny new sign is quickly going to fade. It is a good idea to make sure that you ask a company about what quality of work they offer.
Get What You Want
Make sure that you ask to see designs of your signs through the different stages – don’t just give a sign maker free-reign to design whatever they want because what you like and what they like could be two very different things!
