If you want to help your business flourish, then maybe it’s high time you thought about introducing some high quality laser cut signage to proceedings.

Signage is one of the most important ways of conveying your message to your customers.

The name of your business, its promotions, pricing and product information are all portrayed by signage and can influence potential customers. On average you will have about 7 seconds to make a good first impression, so it makes sense to create an attractive, eye-catching sign that will grab their attention.

What qualities should I look for in effective retail signage?

In order to stand out from the crowd and make customers engage with your business, you need to ensure that your retail signage does the following:

1. Quality production

A high quality laser cut sign will not only give you a professional finish, but it will also have a long-lasting effect as well. This is important as you should always consider the lifespan of a sign, especially when placed on the building’s exterior as it will have to contend with the elements.

When laser cutting metal, you can guarantee that you will be getting a perfect finish every time. Unlike handwritten signs, there isn’t much room for mistakes when using a laser cutter, so the higher quality the sign the better the impression it will leave for customers.

2. Make use of colour

The choice of colour you use needs to be representative of the business, but a general rule of thumb is to not go overboard. What do we mean by that exactly? Well it is advised that you don’t use dramatic shades as this can work against you and put the customer off from entering your business.

You should also note that certain colours are associated with different meanings and emotions, so consider the message you are looking to get across to your clientèle.


3. Simple to read

Make your signage easy to read. Simplicity is key here, as too much information will leave it cluttered and difficult for customers to understand. The material you choose is also important, as it is representative of the company. For instance laser wood engraving will produce a clean and authentic finish that is simple to read.

4. A clear and simple message

Keep your message simple. This way you will avoid confusion with your customers and leave them free to shop with you hassle free. If you want to talk about the price, product info and other information then do so, but remember to be clear with what you say as this could irritate people.

Specially made laser cut designs will stand out more and also have the benefit of being long-lasting. This works better than handwritten signs and will help understand the information you are trying to convey better.

5. Well placed

The location of your signage is perhaps one of the most important elements to consider, as it can help influence your customer’s’ decision making. You need to put it in a position that will catch their attention, but that it will not block essential items throughout the store. You also need to repeat the logo and name which is used on the exterior of the store.
