It’s easy to become overwhelmed by all your outdoor sign options, so here are some handy tips to get the most out of all your outdoor signs in Houston, Texas.

1. Ensure Your Outdoor Signs Clearly Identify Your Houston Business Or Property.

The most prominent outdoor signs are ones that identify commercial businesses or properties (apartment complexes, subdivisions, etc.). These signs both identify and promote their businesses and properties. But to be effective, they have to be highly visible. These signs don’t work if people can’t see them.


Increasing visibility isn’t just a matter of making signs bigger or brighter, though, those are two effective ways of increasing visibility. Placement is also key. Is the idea for your new outdoor sign behind a tree or big bush from the perspective of somebody at the nearest intersection? A sign installed directly on your building may not be sufficient to generate all the impressions you need. Consider installing a monument sign, pole sign, or post and panel sign nearer to the closest road to increase your visibility.

2. Make Sure That All Your Outdoor Signs Comply With ADA Laws.

ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), signs are signs that can be read by anybody. There are both federal and Texas state ADA laws that could possibly affect your signage. If a sign of yours doesn’t include braille, you could be fined. Houston Graphic Signs can help ensure that all your signs are ADA compliant.

3. Choose Your Materials Wisely.

Outdoor signs don’t tend to last as long as indoor signs. Outdoor signs have to withstand rain, wind, and sun bleaching. It’s wise to consider the durability of different materials when designing an outdoor sign. During the consultation process at Houston Graphic Signs, we can suggest materials that both give you the look you want for your sign, and that stand up well to the elements.

4. Strive For Uniformity.

A bright, large channel letter sign doesn’t have to look the same as an aluminum sign that displays parking information. Not all your outdoor signs need to look identical. Nonetheless, there are benefits to having continuity among all your signs. If you have one, try to include your business’s or property management company’s logo on all your outdoor signs. Furthermore, by using the same colors, fonts, and design elements across all your outdoor signs, you can create a cohesive sign system that reinforces the identity of your brand.

    • 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.
