If you're at this point, odds are good you have a logo you love picked out for your business. But unfortunately, not all logos are natively signage friendly! For example, the delicate scripted logo font you may have selected for your business cards and stationery will cause even the most adept custom sign company to stumble. If you had your heart set on having them built for your business storefront as sculpted LED trim-cap letters, graphical compromises such as stroke thickening or outline addition will undoubtedly come into play.
Manufacturing ability isn't the only concern either. Another example of a common pitfall; thin-stroked letters may look clean and crisp right in front of you on a screen or sheet of paper but can become unreadable on a storefront signage from a distance. You wouldn't want to invest in a sign solution that doesn't put the work in for you! If you haven't picked out a logo yet and a uniform look for your logo across all mediums is your goal, consider selecting bold, sans-serif letters with clear contrast and fewer granular details. This will ensure your logo will stand out effectively as a custom business sign, and match 100% accurately to its portrayal in other mediums. But don't fret if you've already selected a logo that may be problematic; any sign company worth their salt will strike the right balance for optimum signage impact.
If you're from an established company and it's been a few years since purchasing your last signage, attempt to have the logo files given to you by your graphic designer on hand from the outset of your purchasing process. Providing these to your salesperson at the sign company as soon as possible for their art department to use will help prevent branding errors, potential graphical revisions, and 11th hour production delays down the road.
No logo? No problem! Many sign companies will work with you for little additional cost to craft a logo solution that will keep your business looking fresh for years to come.
