Sign Boxes are Timeless And Can Serve Your Company Well For Decades

There are two types of old signs. The first type is the type that needs to be replaced or at least redesigned. The paint is peeling. The information on the sign is no longer accurate. The design is faded.

The second type is the type that does not need to be replaced. It is so good-looking that it has become “retro” or “vintage.” The paint has held well over time. The information on the sign is still accurate. There is nothing wrong with the signage.

However, there is a stereotype in the design community that exists around signage, specifically that older designs are not as good as new ones. We feel this with every new fashion trend, every new font preference, and every new design tool that hits the market. This stereotype is not completely accurate though.

While it is true that new designs look “fresher”, there is also nothing wrong with an old design. The problem with old designs is that they sometimes look amateurish and sloppy in comparison to newer, sleeker, designs. The best thing to do if you have signage that looks “old” is to evaluate it. Ask yourself the following questions.

Do I like the way my sign looks?
Is there anything I want to change about the sign?
Do I have the budget to change the sign?

How to Know if You Need New Sign Boxes

There are a number of ways you can tell if you need to upgrade your signage. Here are some of the more common reasons to do this.

You Want to Illuminate Your Sign Boxes

Adding a backlight behind your signage is a great way to increase its visibility in your local community. Regardless of the time of day, more visitors and customers in your store will be able to see your signage as they walk by or drive up.

Make Your Sign Boxes Look Slicker

If your business is a public one, like a club or a fashion store, your signage needs to reflect hipness and youth. This means that you will consistently need to update your store’s design in order to attract new generations of youth over decades. Redesigning and redecorating your store does not just stop at the interior. Oftentimes, you will need to upgrade your signage as well.

This is a very rewarding, but very expensive endeavor. Make sure that you follow up with a signage design company to get the most value out of your signage!
