Signs That Shine: Boosting Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is said to be the attractiveness of a property as viewed from the street.  Curb appeal is the first impression people will have of your property.  Whether you’re listing it for sale or advertising an event at your location, it’s important to make sure that you’re attracting the right kind of attention.  In order to do that, here are several different ways to help boost curb appeal with signs that shine: 

  • Complement

Choose signs that match the design of your home or business which will create a more aesthetically pleasing entrance to your building.

  • Vibrant Colors 

Choose colors that are bold and attractive to the eye.  

  • Durability

Be sure your sign is made of high quality materials, made to withstand the elements.  Signs that are faded or falling apart will distract rather than attract people to it.  

  • Lighting

Be sure that your sign is well-lit if it should need to be seen in dark or near dark conditions.   

  • Installation

Whether your sign is hanging in a frame or placed in the ground, it’s important to be sure that it is properly installed.  If it’s not carefully secured in the frame or the stake isn’t inserted fully into the ground, not only is there potential for losing your sign, but it may also prove to be a major distraction.

  • Visible

Where you place your sign matters as does the care that goes into the area around it.  Choose a location for your sign where people will see it and read it.  Then, be sure you keep your lawn, plants and shrubs trimmed around it.  

  • Fix damage immediately

Even the most durable signs will show wear and tear over time or be subjected to damage from heavy storms.  Fix or replace signs as soon as possible should any damage occur.

All of these factors will play a role in creating signs that shine thus boosting your curb appeal. From proper installation and lighting to complementary design and eye-catching colors, you will want to pay close attention to every detail that goes into displaying the perfect sign.   In doing so, you will make a lasting first impression and maybe even solidify whatever it is you are trying to achieve with your marketing strategy.

Here are some additional tips for making your sign shine:

  • Choose eye-catching graphics.
  • Choose a font that is easy to read from a distance, both bold and legible.
  • Choose vibrant colors.
  • Keep it simple. Get your point across in as few words as possible.
  • Keep it up-to-date and relevant.

Following these tips will not only boost your curb appeal but it might get you a few new customers or friends!
