Choosing the correct type of signage will guarantee the success of your business, project, or condition you want to announce or promote. It is not an easy task, especially with so many options, designs, colors and materials to choose from. However, with the correct guidance and information, you can accurately select the best signage for your purposes.
Today, I would like to focus on 3D signs, not only because they are cool and very popular, but also because they are extremely powerful and effective when applied accurately, from business solutions to ADA purposes.
Business owners are usually drawn to select a 3D signage for their business. It is an excellent option because they are elegant, sophisticated, eye-grabbing, and convey a solid, confident, and trustworthy image. They are also flexible when it comes to its designing as they come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, letter styles, colors, and materials.
On the other hand, they are clear, readable, and can be illuminated if needed, which makes them ideal for interior and exterior purposes. However, before going over the design or concept of your signage, it is important for you to consider the main goal of your sign, so you can get a better idea of the style, colors, and material you might need.
A good way to get started is by considering the location where the sign will be placed. This could help define the recommended materials.
Metals are extremely elegant. It is an attractive dimensional letter material for interior signs. They are also flexible and handy and can be used for high-quality 3D metal logos. They are excellent choices for lobbies and waiting rooms with long, solid, painted, non-decorated walls.
Metal signs are also ideal for outdoor advertisement. Metal letters are very durable and effective in building branding and storefront signage. They can be found in aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, cast aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel.
Wooden letters are sturdy, elegant, and smooth. They can add a level of sophistication to any custom sign and are excellent options for tourist-related businesses, like beach bars or restaurants. In fact, they are one of the most common types of 3D letters. However, they need regular maintenance. It is recommended to establish scheduled maintenance performed by professionals.
Plastic is a durable, versatile sign letter material, ideal for interior and exterior purposes. They are cool, manageable, and can easily be mistaken for more expensive metal letters. They cost less than many other materials and are long-lasting in the outdoors. They can also be illuminated, standing out during night hours.
3D signs are excellent options to follow ADA requirements (Americans with Disabilities Act). 3D signs are attractive, easy to read, and responsive to the sense of touch. Therefore, they have become an ideal option for ADA signage. This type of signage benefits people who are blind or visually impaired, people with hearing problems, speaking problems, and cognitive disabilities or psychiatric conditions.
As you can see, 3D signs are interesting and effective ways to call people’s attention, especially when you know how and where to use them.
