Types of Storefront Signs

For storefront signs, you've got lots of options: point-of-purchase signs, A-frame signs, standing signs, display signs, and wall signs are all formats you can use throughout your store. 

Common Sign Types:

Window signage is another important feature to consider. This, however, should change more frequently than other, more permanent signage (eg: when you receive new merchandise or when seasons change). We've put together a list of ideas for creating effective window displays here.

Portable signage, such as A-frame or chalkboard signs, is a tried and true method of attracting passersby to your store. A timely or humorous message may be just the ticket to catch a potential customer's eye!

Fabric Sign

Fabric signs are possibly the most budget-friendly choice, and they still offer a wide range of colors and features. They do, more so than other signage, require regular upkeep and replacement. You can typically expect to pay somewhere between $3 to $9 per square foot, and more for heavy-duty fade-resistant fabric, hardware, and installation. 

Painted Plywood Sign

For those who love simple, a painted plywood sign may be the way to go. These allow you to craft a personalized message with a subtle, laid-back personality.  Customers will appreciate the more personal, rustic touch. These signs are subject to weather damage, however, and may need to be replaced more frequently than others.

Painted Glass

Using your store's windows as a canvas for imaginative design is a pretty cool way to go. This route allows you to be as subtle or elaborate as you see fit, which also gives you some flexibility in price as well. 

Punched Metal Signboard

Durable and weather-resistant, a punched metal signboard can communicate a clean and modern feel, or, if you choose, can appeal to our love for the nostalgic and historic flavor.

Metal Sign band

Metal signs offer a lot of versatility and creativity for mounting locations. They are eye-catching and professional and won't break the bank. The key to remember here is that the more detailed you get with your artwork, the more the sign will cost.

Awning signs

The cool thing about awning signs is that they are dual function: they provide shade and shelter for your customers as well as attractive advertising/messaging. Costs for awning signs depend on the size and fabric of the awning as well as the hardware needed to hang it.

Rock signs

Perhaps a more classic or "retro" tactic, stone, and other rock materials make for excellent choices for signs. They handle weather conditions well over long periods of time. 

Glass Tube Light

The "luxury" cars of the sign world and glass tube light signs offer limitless design and eye appeal opportunities. They may be on the more expensive side to repair, but their customization and impressive appearance are sure to appeal to customers.


Choosing the right storefront sign for your business

As we said earlier, choosing the right storefront sign for your business shouldn't be guesswork. It should be strategic, based on your location and the needs of your potential customers. With this idea in mind, we've listed below a few tips for choosing the type and style of sign that will prove most beneficial for you and your clientele.

Prairie Signs: Our Values are Quality - Craftsmanship - Service - Value

Storefront sign maintenance

As we mentioned, your storefront sign will serve as the face of your business. What impression do you want potential customers to take away? Burned-out bulbs, flickering neon, or peeling paint convey a bad impression. You want your customers to know that you don't take shortcuts, you don't sell low-quality products, and you are detail-oriented. Poor sign maintenance will suggest the opposite, and you may find yourself losing customers.

We gladly offer sign maintenance and repair to our clients because your image is important to us. We want to help you impress each and every single one of your clients.

What Our
Clients Say

“Prairie Signs is our go to vendor for installing and maintaining digital and static billboards for Picture This Outdoor Advertising. This particular project, they installed some upgrades. Although we had a few bumps with the parts supplier, Prairie's staff was great. The service tech was both patient and persistent to get the job done, kept in touch as the job progressed and made a tough day a little easier with his positive attitude - even 20 feet up in the air on a cold December day.”
