How Outdoor Signage Helps Your Business Be Seen

How Outdoor Signage Helps Your Business Be Seen

Outdoor signage is crucial for all types of businesses in Adelaide, both large and small. Depending on the type of business and your physical location, outdoor signs can perform a range of valuable functions, from attracting customers, to promoting special offers, to reinforcing your brand identity.

At PB Visual Communications, we specialise in the design, manufacture and installation of all types of outdoor signage, and can take care of the entire process for you, from initial concept right through to seeing your new signage in place.

Our comprehensive project management service also means that we can also undertake site surveys and arrange for the appropriate permits and development/planning approvals from the relevant authorities for the installation of your signage.

How is outdoor signage used?

Outdoor business signs are an important advertising and promotional solution for all types of retail, commercial and corporate premises. They are valuable for both small, individual businesses as well as larger, multi-site operations, and can be designed for installation at your business premises or offsite as part of a wider advertising campaign.

For larger businesses and organisations who already have established names, outdoor building signs are an effective way of reinforcing brand or corporate identity. When integrated as part of physical premises, they firmly locate the business in the community, and well-designed, innovative outdoor display signs can actually become a landmark in their own right.

When used as part of a wider promotional campaign in offsite locations, outdoor advertising signs can reach huge numbers of people and serve to substantially broaden the reach and exposure of your business.

For smaller, independent businesses, outdoor business signs can fulfil a very different function. If you run a café, a gym or a hairdressers, for instance, outdoor display signs can serve a more immediate and practical purpose, namely alerting passing road or foot traffic to your location, creating recognition and direct engagement with customers.

Freestanding signs

Freestanding signs are extremely versatile and serve a variety of different purposes. Pylon and blade signs, for instance, are ideal in busy urban environments where they need to catch attention or mark out the location of your premises, while garden bed signs are an effective way of using all of the space that you have available. 

We design and manufacture freestanding signage in a range of styles, including illuminated signs, 3D lettering signage and LED signs, and utilise a variety of materials to create the ideal effect for the location and purpose.

3D signs

3D signs come in a variety of forms and can be manufactured using a variety of different materials and methods to create distinctive, eye-catching and highly effective outdoor signage.

We can create 3D lettering in materials such as acrylic, stainless steel or timber and many more, while push through lettering creates the appearance of lettering or images bursting through the background of the sign to create a 3D effect.

As can be seen from our gallery, outdoor 3D signs can be bold and eye catching, subtle and sophisticated, or used to create unique, more abstract concepts that mean your signage has real impact.

Illuminated signs

Illuminated signs continue to be one of the most popular forms of sign design Adelaide businesses use for promotion and advertising. For instance, recent design trends have seen neon signs make a comeback in a big way, while the use of advanced technology in sign design means that illuminated LED signage has become significantly more cost effective in all types of applications.

Illuminated 3D signs are especially effective both at helping your outdoor signage to stand out in a crowded advertising environment, and enable your signs to be visible at all times of the day and night.

Our specialist team designs, manufactures and installs outdoor LED signs and other types of 3D illuminated signage suitable for a range of purposes and locations, and the flexibility they offer means that illuminated signs can be used as part of almost any kind of design concept.

We also have extensive experience in creating outdoor lightbox signs that can be displayed on building exteriors, as part of a pylon or blade sign, or under awnings in retail precincts. Outdoor light box signs also have the advantage of being able to display combination of words and images, and can incorporate 3D lettering as part of the design as well.
