The decision to invest in a lit or non-lit signage for your business depends on several factors and considerations. Here are a few points to help you make an informed decision:
Visibility: Consider the visibility requirements of your business. If your business operates during the evening or night, or if you're located in an area with low visibility, a lit sign can help attract attention and make your business more noticeable.
Branding and Impact: Evaluate the impact you want to create with your signage. Lit signs tend to be more eye-catching and can create a stronger impression, especially in areas with heavy foot or vehicle traffic. Non-lit signs can be effective as well, but they may not stand out as much in certain environments.
Cost and Maintenance: Compare the initial investment and ongoing maintenance costs. Lit signs require electrical connections, bulbs, and periodic maintenance to ensure proper functioning. Non-lit signs generally have lower upfront costs and don't require electricity, making them more cost-effective over time.
Local Regulations: Check the local regulations and zoning restrictions regarding signage in your area. Some regions have specific guidelines regarding the type, size, and lighting of signs. Ensure that your chosen signage complies with these regulations.
Brand Identity and Aesthetic: Consider your brand identity and the overall aesthetic you want to convey. Lit signs can provide more design options and flexibility in terms of colors, effects, and animation. Non-lit signs may be preferred if you have a more minimalistic or traditional brand image.
Target Audience: Understand your target audience and their preferences. If your target customers are likely to be attracted to bold, illuminated displays, a lit sign might be a better choice. However, if your target audience prefers a more understated or eco-friendly approach, a non-lit sign could be more appropriate.
Ultimately, the decision should be based on a combination of these factors and align with your business goals, budget, and branding strategy. Consider conducting market research, seeking professional advice from signage companies, or even surveying your potential customers to gather insights specific to your business and location.
