For businesses the ability to easily be identified by their customers is so important. A custom sign is one way to solve this problem. Well established, or just starting out, most successful businesses know the importance of good signage.
Custom signs not only help customers find the business or store they are looking for but they also serve to reinforce brand awareness. Special fonts and logos can be used so that the visual branding of the business is consistent. Take the “Par Lounge” sign shown below. The image of the golfer and the specialized font both match this business’ already established logo.
In addition custom signs can be used to enhance the inside of a business showroom or office. The “Martin Foot Specialists” and “Britta’s Tea Room” signs are two examples of this. These two signs both used established “Name Art” designs offered by Alabama Metal Art and were personalized with business names rather than a family name. These Name Art pieces work well in areas (inside or out) where larger signs are not appropriate.
Businesses and organizations often have needs for special signs other than for name, location, and brand awareness. Take this “Secret Garden” sign for example. This organization had a playground constructed where all the playground equipment and supplies were donated by local businesses and residents. This custom sign was developed as a means to recognize all those that so generously donated their time and money.
Custom signs are not confined to the business world. “The Farm” sign shown below was shipped to Canada where it will be displayed on a family farm. “The Secret Garden” sign above and “The Farm” sign below share a similar feature. On each sign the lettering and the floral detail (Secret Garden) are attached in a way so that they appear to “float” over the back plate. This method of construction allows for the lettering and back plate to receive separate contrasting decorative finishes so that the writing is more easily seen. In addition this method creates a 3-dimensional look that gives the sign some “depth” and character.
Whether it’s at home on a family farm, on an office wall, or identifying a store front custom signs come in many forms and serve a variety of purposes. If you are in need of a custom sign for any reason contact Alabama Metal Art to see what we can create for you!
