Why Upgrade Your Sign System?

Businesses reported average sales increases of 10% or more by adding or updating their signs.**

Your sign system is like a silent salesperson or traffic cop. It has the ability to grab attention, build brand awareness & get people into your office or store. A simple update, refresh or splash of color on an exterior sign or lobby sign will have a big impact.

Large companies with multiple locations identified branding as the most important purpose of effective signage.**

Your reception sign or lobby sign is the first thing your employees & your customers see when they enter the office every day. The lobby sign is your first chance to make a big impression & a lasting impression. Make sure your lobby sign stands-out & reflects your values & supports your company culture.

Customers believe that good signage reflects the quality of a business & their product.**

Think of your in-store signage as your silent salespeople. Although it can’t verbally interact with your customers, a high-quality sign communicates a message of quality & professionalism.

Americans have told someone else about a business (or linked to it on social media) as a reaction to your signage.**

We live in the age of millennials & Instagram. The more aesthetically pleasing your signage & décor are the more likely your tech-savvy customers are going to Instagram & geotag your store or your company, encouraging all of their friends, fans, & followers to do the same.
