Signs Los Angeles | Important Tips for Designing Effective Signs

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Fri, Sep 23, 2011 @ 06:09 AM

Important Tips for Designing an Effective Sign

What is the first thing most customers notice? Signs! Strategically placed, uniquely branded, and carefully designed signs can add traffic and revenue to your business. Effective signage can be the key to growing your business and grabbing a larger chunk of the market.

What makes an effective sign?
A sign's visibility:
The sign and message should be readable from a customary viewing distance - consider whether most of your potential clients will view the sign as a pedestrian or while traveling in a car. This will determine where a signs is placed, where on the sign the graphics and text are located, and what size your sign needs to be.

A sign's readability: Will they be able to easily view and understand your sign? The size of the graphics and text on a sign is also important. Can your customer read what is on your sign? If you don't have room for large letters you should consider using light colored letters on a dark background. This will provide a high contrast for easy viewing.

A sign's aesthetic: Is your sign pleasing to look at? Customers tend to be drawn to signs with pictures or graphics and producing a sign in full color is even more beneficial. Using a border on your sign design will help frame your message and can help provide a clear, concise message.

Signs Los Angeles | How Effecient Signs and Banners are for YOU!

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Wed, Sep 21, 2011 @ 06:09 AM

Signs and banners are an efficient way to advertise any type of business with lasting results. How Effecient can signs & banners be for you!

A sign should be the spotlight of your place of business as this may be the only opportunity to sell your product. In today's competitive marketplace signs should attract the attention of the consumer and invite them to buy. An advertisement with a distinct and eye catching design or logo can produce a high volume of customers. Signs and banners are an investment that will pay for itself. Extra income can be generated by strategically marketing your brand. Our business is to help you create the best design for your specific advertising needs.

At The Sign Studio we have full color digital graphics to enhance the symbol, logo or emblem you may want to use in creating your banner or sign. A banner is large but portable; it can be moved from a doorway, window or entrance and be placed where you decide it attracts the most attention. A window sign is more of a permanent way of getting the same outcome. If your business does not have the space for a large banner or you just don't want the permanence of a window sign; a site sign or vehicle sign could be the answer. These signs are removable and portable, just smaller in scale. We can still design a logo that is unique for your business. Whether it's a restaurant, daycare, doctor's office, grocery store or even a one- time event we will make sure you are seen. Call us today for a consultation and quote!

What's Your Sign?

Welcome to the family! Today, a growing trend is the family restroom. If you are joining in trend at your commercial building, announce it appropriately with a professional sign.

Let families know exactly where to go with family restroom signage. Choose the perfect pictograph to let your guests know who is welcome in your restrooms as well as the capacity of your bathroom facility.

One toilet? Two toilets? Specify with a family bathroom sign. All are welcome in your commercial family restroom so don't be afraid to say so with a professional posted bathroom sign. Not only are family restrooms unisex, but they often include two or more toilets, a changing table, and enough capacity for a wheelchair. Show your care and concern for families and people with disabilities at your facility.

No matter what your guests may need, let them know they are welcome at your one stop, pit stop. These bold, attractive, easy to read bathroom signs are universal and will communicate appropriately, no translations needed.

Pick the perfect color to adapt to your decor. Family restroom signs are available in Braille and can be custom made to match your needs.

Los Angeles Signs | Do you need Regulatory, Traffic or ADA Signage?

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Fri, Sep 16, 2011 @ 06:09 AM

Do you need Regulatory/Traffic Signs, Health and Safety Signs  or ADA/Handicap Signs?  

If you are a business owner, you understand that you must provide parking for visitors to your establishment if you are going to generate any kind of traffic at all. While most business storefronts already have some form of parking available, just taking it for granted that everyone will be able to locate a spot for them will just not be good enough. As a matter of fact there are some things that the authorities consider a must if you are going to provide proper parking for your customers. Handicap signs, regulatory signs, Health and Safety signs must all be in place or you may not just miss out on some great business, but you could even be fined a hefty sum.

Designated visitor and employee spaces are a must if you are going to be able to handle all the traffic that comes your way, and don't forget to place signs that warn violators that they may just be towed away. No one wants to injure another person for parking in a spot that is not for their use, but let's face it, if there are no parking spaces left, your customers may just go somewhere else.

Using handicap signs, regulatory signs, Health and Safety signs are just the beginning of the types of parking signs that are a necessary part of doing business these days, so make sure you have all of yours in place to accommodate the needs of your clients.

Los Angeles Signs | Do you need ADA Family Restroom Signs?

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Mon, Sep 12, 2011 @ 06:09 AM

Are you looking for ADA FAMILY RESTROOM Signs or do you have any questions about ADA Compliance?

The Sign Studio is eager to help you with your sign design needs. We can create family restroom signs, ADA signs, restroom signs and other signs to meet your needs.

We have a creative staff that wants to help you come up with the sign that fits what you have in mind by getting to know you.

Why an ADA sign ?

The Americans with Disability Act has mandated that facilities that are usable and easily accessible for persons with physical handicaps be clearly marked with an approved ADA sign.

There are many regulations that must be met to make a sign ADA approved.

For example; the sign must be a certain size, color, finish, text size and font.

The Sign Studio can help you with the fine details of making sure your ADA sign is compliant with all the restrictions.

Often a business has very few handicap accessible locations. Without proper signs the community with physical handicaps is not being properly served. It is very important that locations that meet ADA needs be properly indicated for use.

Weather you need family restroom signs, ADA signs, restroom signs or have other needs of your own; The Sign Studio computer - assisted sign making systems and techniques can make your project cost effective.

If you want high impact that will get you the results you need contact The Sign Studio.

Signs Los Angeles | How to pick the perfect Font for your Sign?

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Sun, Sep 11, 2011 @ 06:09 AM

"What is the perfect font for your sign?"

Since you asked there is really no answer to this question. It's a question we get a lot at The Sign Studio. Truly a question like that has to be answered on a case by case basis. It's like asking what is the perfect color for the outside of my house? The simple answer is white walls and black trim and shutters. There are no simple answers in life. Can you imagine driving through a neighborhood where all of the houses were decorated with white walls and black trim and shutters? Creepy right?

Now imagine that only one of those houses in that neighborhood was painted a nice tan with beige trim and a red door. That house would really stand out next to all the other houses. That's what you are looking for in a font a way to stand out amongst all the other black and white houses.

More importantly you need to find a way to stand out and get your message across concisely and as quick as possible about who you are and what you do. You only have the viewers attention for a very small amount of time before the next shiny thing grabs their attention. Here are two things that I think help when trying to consider what font to use.

What am I trying to say? Who am I trying to reach?

Say you run a bridal company. You are going to want a font that will reflect what it is you do and with its look you want it to give your name a look that will reach people. In this case it will have to have a gentle sophisticated feel to it. It's a bridal company and not a plumbing company after all. Those are two different looks. See below...

Which looks better? See the difference? It's something to think about...

Los Angeles Signs | History of the Most Popular Fonts Used for Signs

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Sat, Sep 10, 2011 @ 06:09 AM

What is the History of Popular Fonts Used for Signs?  

“What’s the best font to use on a sign?”

It’s a question that The Sign Studio team members face frequently. While there is no one perfect answer for every situation, there are some fonts that have endured through the years to become staples in visual communications, DIN 1451, Frutiger, Gill Sans and Helvetica are classic fonts that have helped countless people reach their destinations throughout the decades.

DIN 1451 isn’t a promising name for a good communicator, but it has been used since the 1930s for scientific and traffic signs. The name is an acronym for the German Deutsches Institut für Normung (German Institute for Standardization). In 1936 the German Standard Committee named DIN 1451 the official typeface for technology, administration, engineering, traffic and business. The medium version of this font was popular with graphic designers in the 1980’s and today it is frequently used for identification on vehicles and as cast metal lettering for street and building signage.

Frutiger is a typeface commissioned in 1968 by the Charles De Gaulle International Airport for new directional signs. Type designer Adrian Frutiger was told to create a modern font that had excellent visibility at various angles, sizes and distances. This highly legible font with a warm personality is a favorite in the advertising industry. In 2008 it was the fifth best-selling typeface of the Linotype foundry. It is used throughout the public transit network in Norway since the 1980s.

In 1929 Eric Gill was commissioned to produce Gill Sans for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER). It was first presented in a single uppercase weight and became very popular immediately. It was the standard typeface for all LNER posters, locomotive nameplates, station signage and even the menu on the dining cars. More recently, the BBC adopted Gill Sans for its corporate typeface in 1997. The British Government formally adopted Gill Sans as its standard typeface for use in all communications and logos in 2003.

Helvetica is another classic font, so popular it even inspired its own film. The U.S. Government uses Helvetica for everything from federal tax forms to NASA’s Space Shuttle orbiter. It is also used for the U.S. television rating system. Helvetica was adopted as the official font for all of New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority in 1989. The Chicago Transit Authority uses Helvetica for the city’s elevated train system and Philadelphia’s SEPTA uses it exclusively for all signage.

To learn more about the history of classic fonts, visit this excellent post from the Live Well Collaborative.

Los Angeles | Handicap Signs of all kinds............and more!

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Fri, Sep 9, 2011 @ 06:09 AM

Handicap parking signs and handicap signs of all kinds........What are you looking for?

Everywhere you travel in the world, there is some type of regulation regarding public parking. Handicap signs and parking signs are intended to help determine where an individual is permitted to park. Handicap signs are there to determine the optimal spot for individuals with disabilities so that they will not have to travel as far to access the entrance to buildings, and more importantly, in many cases, more room to remove wheel chairs and other equipment needed to get around.Parking signs are used to help enforce policies concerning parking a vehicle in efforts to reduce confusion that can otherwise occur in public parking areas. They are also there to ensure the safety of the public. It is important that every driver understand the penalties applied when they park in areas not intended for them. This will alleviate any worries about having stiff fines levied against them or the hassle of having to pay to retrieve a towed vehicle.

Handicap signs, parking signs are some of the most often seen parking signs as drivers make their way around and through parking lots. They are usually positioned as close to the front doors of buildings as possible on a level surface, and are easily discernible from other parking signs. They typically have a blue background with a wheelchair graphic overlaid on it.

There are many other types of parking signs such as permitted parking signs, and no parking signs. Understanding the meanings as well as the penalties for violating them is critical for courteous driving.

Check out The Sign Studio at www.thesignstudioonline.com today! I guarantee you won't be disappointed with the selection of high quality, custom made signage they have to offer. Whether you need small bathroom signs or large custom made signs or banners, The Sign Studio is your ultimate choice for any sign related project.

Los Angeles Signs | ADA Family Restroom Sign

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Tue, Sep 6, 2011 @ 06:09 AM

ADA Family Restroom Door Signs

When selecting family restroom signs, consider what message you are trying to convey to the public. Are the restrooms equipped for the entire family, ADA compliant and/or do they offer a changing station for mothers with babies?

Most family restroom signs convey simple images, often in black and white, that convey the purpose or functionality of the restroom. For example, women are depicted with a triangle shape, imagery that most people associated with a skirt, men are depicted without this added shape and a child is often holding hands between a man and a woman. If the restroom is ADA compliant, the image of an individual sitting in wheelchair is the most commonly chosen for the family restroom signs.

Beyond the basic imagery, family restroom signs are available in a variety of color backdrops; black, blue, green or even white. For lighter color signs, the imagery is often printed in black, whereas signs with a darker backdrop may offer the same imagery but in white forms for visual contrast. Family restroom signs are available in vertical and horizontal layouts, and a variety of sizes.

When selecting a sign for your business or organization, keep in mind that the sign needs to not only be easy to identify, but readable from a reasonable distance. Consider the overall size of the space as well as where the average visitor's viewpoint will be when selecting the sign's size. Ultimately, the sign's form and function should be simple, easy to understand and visible for all visitors entering the space.

Lobby Signs - Display Your Logo and show it off!

The lobby of your office building is an extremely important place, and you not only want it to give off a vibe of comfort and professionalism, but you also want it to help promote your business, whatever it may be. The fact is, signs are a crucial part of virtually all types of advertising, and well made ones can go a long way towards attracting people to your business. That's why it's so important that you choose the right people to design your lobby signs.

Creativity, aesthetics, and professionalism are all very important aspects of an effective sign. You know as well as I do that a plain old, boring looking black and white sign isn't going to do squat in terms of drawing interest to a business or product. If you're going to put up a lackluster sign to advertise your business, you might as well just fill that lobby space with a couch instead. When getting your sign designed, you really need to get it done by people who truly know what they're doing. Lobby signs and logo signs are a couple of the many specialties offered by The Sign Studio, where they offer a wide variety of signs that they design themselves.

Just remember, if you don't care enough about your sign to get it done by professionals, your potential customers aren't going to care about it either.

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 | Important Rules & Regulations for Signs

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Sun, Sep 4, 2011 @ 06:09 AM

Rules and Regulations for Handicap Parking Signs and Spaces that you should know.

Don't take chances with handicap signs at your business, we make handicap signs from restrooms to parking spaces. Our signs meet the high standards required by the AMA and we know where and how high to put them!

Accessible handicap parking spaces must be positioned at the closest accessible entrance to the facility. The space has to be big enough for a vehicle, at least 96 inches wide, with additional space on either left or right that acts as an access isle and should be wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair. Two accessible spaces can share an access isle.

A sign with the international symbol of accessibility must be located in front of the parking space, mounted high enough to be visible at all times. Van accessible spaces are to have additional signage stating "Van-Accessible" mounted below the international symbol of accessibility. The AMA states that the letters and numbers on signs are to have a width-to-height ratio between 3:5 and a stroke-width-to-height ratio between 1:5 and 1:10. Minimum character height is 3 inches. Confused? Don't worry, we at The Sign Studio understand all of it and will supply you with signs which meet all the standards for handicap parking.

We do all handicap signs including restrooms.
