6 Examples of Good Building Signs

Building signs are some of the most common and basic—yet important—examples of signage in the Houston area of Texas. Here are six examples of building signs.

1. 3D Lettering Can Make A Simple But Effective Building Sign.

Individually made, three-dimensional letters are a good example of uncomplicated and efficient building signage. Large, 3D letters can really convey the characteristics of their design. The font you choose can say a lot about your business or institution. Whether your brand is authoritative and no-nonsense or creative and fun, the font you choose for the 3D letters installed on your building can really communicate the qualities of your brand.

2. Channel Letters Give Your Building Sign A Little Extra Glow.

Channel letters are the same as 3D letters in all but one way: channel letters are illuminated. Lighted building signs can be seen from further away and at night and in the rain. Channel letters are especially popular among commercial buildings and businesses within buildings.

3. Monument Signs Demonstrate That Not All Building Signs Have To Be On Buildings.

If your building has a large parking lot or yard between it and the nearest road, it will be difficult for passersby to see a sign on your building. A large, freestanding, monument sign installed near the side of the road can easily grab people’s attention. Pole signs operate on the same principle, but the sign panel is installed atop a tall pole. A tenant sign is one of these signs that identifies a number of different businesses on the same property.

4. Post And Panel Signs Are Versatile Outdoor Signs.

Post and panel signs can be used similarly to monument signs.  You can have a decorative aluminum post with a custom cut ACM panel sign between them. Either cut vinyl or a laminated graphic would be applied to the ACM panel. For a more temporary post and panel, you may want to use 1/2” signboard between two wood posts. You can attach a single signboard or place one on each side. Vinyl laminated graphics would be applied directly on the signboard.

5. Awning Signs Are Functional Building Signs.

An awning is great to keep the hot sun off the front of your building or to keep your customers out of the rain. If you have an awning, it’s a good idea to  have your business name and logo easily visible for customers to locate your business.

6. Engraved Signs Are Simple And Classy.

While not usually large, engraved plaques can identify your building with style and sophistication.

    • 5 star review  Houston Graphic Signs is by far the best sign company in Houston, I am an assistant to a large local real estate brokerage in the area. We had an emergency regarding the HOA size requirements for a yard sign for one of our top agents about a year ago and Houston Graphic Signs were the only sign company able to expediate the sign and have it delivered asap! (believe me I probably called every sign company in Houston for help and Houston Graphic Signs were the only company that got it done) I have been working with Houston Graphic Signs for over a year now they produced high quality signs for our top producing agents (around 300) and worked with me regarding the art work and spreadsheets. Houston Graphics Signs always checks for errors on the art work to insure high quality. Michelle Mason who is one of the owners is always available! She always goes above and beyond even working late into the evening and weekends to assure our products arrive on time. You will not go wrong using Houston Graphic signs if you want high quality material priced at a competitive rate as well as top notch service. Thank you for everything Houston Graphic Signs Michelle Nagler

    • 5 star review  This company is fantastic. The design department was very receptive to our ideas for our logo. They were quick to offer suggestions for ways to make our company logo memorable. They offered multiple designs for us and were quick to present any changes that were made. They were very accommodating to our schedule for the installation on our truck. If you are looking for great service and a quality product, you need to look no further than Houston Graphic Sign Company. They will be doing all of our future graphic projects.
