Signs Los Angeles | The Importance of Signs and Advertising!

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Wed, Aug 31, 2011 @ 06:08 AM

Your sign is your best employee!

The first impression is the only impression.  We’ve all heard that song before. And you can’t change that first impression even if you tried; it’s what people hear and see and remember.   That’s why your signage is so important.   

That’s what a sign should do.  It should scream from the rooftops.  It should grab your attention like a great billboard in the sky.  “Here we are!  Look at what we have!”

A sign can speak volumes about your company, products and services.  So what you definitely want is a sign that actually speaks to the customers and says, “Hey…look at me and remember me!”  You want a sign that speaks personally to each person who sees it, enticing them to come in, look around, you’re welcome here, because customer loyalty is a great value in business and when your sign is readily recognizable, long term success is almost assured.

You want signage that introduces you and shakes the hands of those passing by.  Remember that a sign works and speaks for you twenty-four hours a day, three hundred and sixty-five days a year, absolutely making it your best employee ever!

Take a ride in your local area.   Start noticing signs just where you live, and you'll realize that you can’t look anywhere without seeing one.  So why not make yours stand out among the rest?  Why not make your company’s first impression the lasting impression?

Signs Los Angeles | Signs and Banners = Sales!

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Tue, Aug 30, 2011 @ 06:08 AM

Signs, Banners and Sales!

Have you considered how new customers find your business or learn of your product?  There are many types of advertising and ways to grow your business; direct mail, social media, print ads, the Internet, and word of mouth are all effective ways to find exposure.  Yet none of these outlets are as prevalent, or permanent, as well constructed, thoughtful custom signs.  

Signs are one of the most effective, efficient, and cost conscious forms of media available to businesses.  Signs advertise to people passing your establishment who normally may not know of your business or products.  Signs tell people what you are selling, promote your brand, and are directly focused on the trade of the business.

Signs are affordable - if you compare the cost of signs to other advertising media, a well designed, on-site sign is quite inexpensive.  

Signs are for everyone - the use of signs is practical because reading signs is beneficial.  People read to remember and they retain the information on signs for future use.

Signs are on the job 24 hours a day, seven days a week - this can be considered non-stop, repeated messaging about your business, brand, and product.  Every time a customer passes your business, they see your sign; the simple message repetition will help them learn and think favorably of your business.

If you have any questions or need assistance with anything, please give us a call at The Sign Studio (818) 843-9200 or send us an e-mail at info@signstudiola.com.

Los Angeles Signs | Marketing Your Business With Banners and Signs!

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Sat, Aug 27, 2011 @ 06:08 AM

Marketing Your Business With Signs and Banners!

No matter what your business is an economical and long lasting way to market your company is with the use of signs and banners.

With so much competition in the marketplace signs should stand out and be welcoming. Signs should give the customer an idea of what's behind the sign and hopefully what kind of experience they should be looking forward to. Signs should also catch the eye and become unforgettable. As a sign is often the first opportunity we have to market a business, we should try to get everything we want to express about our business into the sign. A great sign is probably the best investment in your company's advertising budget!

Banners are lightweight and easy to carry or ship to trade shows because they roll or can be flat packed taking up little space. Banners are a fun way to market your company or business. Because of the relative low-cost, banners can be replaced as business changes, you can always have your latest best seller on a banner. A well placed, bright and informational banner can bring a lot of business to your booth at a trade show. Banners can also be used to advertise specials or promotions.

Working with a good design team who understand your needs will enable you to create the signs and banners that will help your business grow.

Los Angeles Signs | Light up Your Business with Illuminated Signs!

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Fri, Aug 26, 2011 @ 06:08 AM

Light up Your Business with Illuminated Signs!

Do you need illuminated signs or a light box for your business?

What are L.E.D. Illuminated Signs?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. LED technology has been in use since the 1960s. Illuminated signs can be freestanding or fixed to a building.

Some of the Benefits of LED Lighting:

  • Your business will be seen 24/7
  • Uses 12 volts, as opposed to neon, which uses up to 9,000 to 15,000 volts.
  • Comparable brightness to neon
  • LED illuminated signs last up to 100,000 hours when properly installed
  • Reduced fire hazards because of low voltage system
  • Savings of up to 80% power over traditional neon-lighted signs, resulting in a 3 year return on investment via power cost savings
  • Cleaner and simpler installation than neon
Neon has been faithfully leading the industry for illuminated signs for over a hundred years and is still a good option. Change is inevitable, however, and The Sign Studio is on the leading edge of exciting LED technology.

We’re here to help you with your signage needs!For more information about the benefits of LED Illuminated Signs, visit our blog.

Los Angeles Signs | Floor Graphics continue to sell 24/7!

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Wed, Aug 17, 2011 @ 06:08 AM

Floor Graphics sell for you!

Look down. What do you see? The first thing you see is the floor. People look at what's underfoot as soon as they approach your threshold.

Floor graphics...sell for you! If you aren't using your floor, you're wasting a selling tool.

Think about the potential for your floor. How much space is available? How much space can you clear to accommodate your floor graphics? Have you thought about the floor in your restrooms?

If your restrooms are ADA compliant, you have a clear space about six feet in diameter, the size required to turn a wheelchair. Let us design floor graphics for your restrooms.

Floor graphics should be clear, easy to read from a distance of 6 feet, and be understood quickly.

If you don't want to present specific products on your floor, how about your company logo? Even a location like a doctor's office or a lawyer's office would be enhanced by using floor graphics.

Why do you have a company logo? Because you are looking for instant recognition. You want people to say "I've seen that before" about your logo. Use it often and in unique places. Incorporating your logo in floor graphics, you will be surprised at how well they sell for you.

If you have any questions or need assistance with anything, please give us a call at The Sign Studio (818) 843-9200 or send us an e-mail at info@signstudiola.com.

Signs Los Angeles | Safety Signs - Keeping Us All Safer............

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Fri, Aug 12, 2011 @ 06:08 AM

Safety Signs - Keeping Us All Safer..........

Big orange diamonds mean Construction Ahead. Bright red octagons mean STOP. Yellow or red triangles mean YIELD. Safety signs like these help keep all of us safer whether we are driving, are passengers or are pedestrians on the roads, streets and highways.

Consider the example of a car accident. One of the first things insurance companies will do is examine the scene and look at any safety signs in place. The signs dictate expected behavior and disregarding those signs can end in disaster.

Safety signs create a set of norms we all learn to follow. By following the rules these signs symbolize, we work together to ensure safety for everyone on the road. These signs and norms are so important we teach them to children at the earliest of ages to help protect these vulnerable citizens.

Safety signs don't stop in traffic, though. Signs to encourage us all to be watchful include signs for hazardous conditions, dangers in natural locations and many other hazards we face each and every day.

The sign pros at The Sign Studio can work with you to create the best safety signs for your location to keep everyone out of harm's way. Contact us today!

If you have any questions or need assistance with anything, please give us a call at The Sign Studio (818) 843-9200 or send us an e-mail at info@signstudiola.com.

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Thu, Aug 11, 2011 @ 06:08 AM

ADA Signs - Do you have any questions?

The Americans with Disabilities Act marked a great civil rights triumph in our country for people with physical differences. Sometimes, though, navigating the requirements for ADA signs can be tough. Let the experts at The Sign Studio help you install ADA compliant signs for your business or location.Signs compliant with ADA regulations include signs for numerous locations including:

Parking lots
Restrooms
Ramps and stairways
Elevators
Storage rooms
Fitting rooms
ATMs

Signs often must include pictures or other graphics, symbols and Braille letters. Additionally, the government has imposed restrictions on fonts, the use of upper and lower case letters, and decorative elements. There are also government requirements for signage for exteriors, interiors and parking lots.

Rather than try to sift through all the government regulations yourself for your location, let the experts at The Sign Studio do the work for you. We have years of experience creating ADA signs for our clients to keep them in compliance with federal regulations.

Visit us today.

If you have any questions or need assistance with anything, please give us a call at The Sign Studio (818) 843-9200 or send us an e-mail at info@signstudiola.com.

Los Angeles Signs | Traffic Signage - What would we do without them?

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Wed, Aug 10, 2011 @ 06:08 AM

Traffic Signs - What would we do without them?

One of the first signs young children learn about is the stop sign. Bold, red and noticeable, children quickly learn this octagon means "Stop!" proving the value traffic and stop signs play in our daily lives from the very earliest age. Signs play a vital role in how we go about business as drivers, passengers and pedestrians. Traffic signs help us navigate, stay safe and build community.

On Our Way
Going from point A to point B doesn't get done without traffic signs. Traffic signs tell us where we are and where we are going. Without them, we couldn't navigate city streets, highways or sidewalks.

Play it Safe
Left turn only? Lane ending? Watch out for pedestrians? Signs work to keep us safe as we drive or walk to our destinations. Traffic and stop signs alert everyone using roadways about what to expect and how to behave keeping us all safer as we travel to our destinations.

Working Together
Through traffic signs, we achieve a sense of community. We all play by the same set of rules created by traffic signs. Together, we keep each other safe and arrive to our destination on time.

Let The Sign Studio be your destination for traffic signs.

Looking for Handicap Parking Signs?

Are you looking for handicap signs for your parking lot? Look no further than The Sign Studio, your premier sign company for all ADA compatible signs.

Requirements for handicap parking signs change regularly including how many signs parking lots need, the style of lettering required on the signs and the use of decorative elements. Before you install or upgrade your parking lot signs, make sure you work with a sign company who has experience creating and installing signs for handicap drivers.

At The Sign Studio, we have been making ADA compliant signs for many years.  We use state-of-art, computer-aided sign making systems and techniques to make our signs and provide our clients personal attention throughout the sign making process.

When you choose The Sign Studio for your handicap signs, you have chosen a trusted vendor who knows the requirements of ADA signs.
