5 Design Tips for Your Wide Print Format Sign

Are you in the market for a wide print format sign? If so, are you planning on designing it or are you hiring someone to design it for you? Before you begin the process, there are a few tips we have and suggest thinking of before sending it off to print. Font It’s important to keep font size in mind on wide print format signs. Even if you think your font is large enough to read, you have to think about where your sign will be placed. Is it a billboard? Is it going to be hung outside of a building? Remember that even though it looks like it will be large enough to read, make sure it’s visible to those who will be seeing it, too. It’s also important to remember the font you choose. Make sure it is clean and easy to read in any size. Simplicity Less is more on wide print format signs. Say you’re promoting or raising awareness around a product. All you might need on the sign is an image of the product and its name. If not, think about the message you want to get across. Make sure that your message is as simple and clear as possible, as again, less is more with these signs. Resolution When designing your wide print format sign, make sure you keep the resolution in mind. Be sure that the resolution will work for a large format sign, not just for web or a small design. It’s also important to keep in mind what medium you are going to be printing your banner on. Is it going to be on a vinyl banner or on a metal sign? Make sure that when designing the artwork that it will look okay on the format you choose to print on. Location Is your banner going to be seen from a highway? If so, maybe you don’t want to use the color green as it might look funny near trees. Is it going to be on a building? Either way, it’s important to make sure that wherever your banner lives that it looks good in its environment. Viewership When designing your banner, keep in mind who will be seeing it. Make sure that you create verbiage that will resonate with your audience. If you’re simply promoting a product, always make sure you use your verbiage wisely and in a way that’s most effective to get your point across to your audience.

Why You Need a Large Format Banner for Your New Construction Build

A large format banner serves the purpose of branding your new construction build. It increases your network of both potential and current clients because let’s face it: image is everything. When you have your construction company’s logo hung up on your construction site or displayed on your finished project, people notice. This spreads awareness and credibility throughout your community. Large format banners make a construction site more appealing. Without any type of marketing efforts to make your construction site visually attractive, people will not think twice about what they see when passing your site. This can result in potential lost business opportunities for your construction company. Without branding a construction site, there is nothing distinctive to grab people’s attention. Because of the size of large format banner’s, your company’s logo is highly visible. The public will have no doubt about which construction company is building the site, and a large format banner will serve to reinforce your company in the minds of consumers. Again, making your company as noticeable as possible is key; others notice your company and your work. Hopefully, with others knowing the name of your construction company and the quality of your work, this will generate new business. A site under construction has several restricted areas or areas which require more caution for those working or visiting.  A large format banner can benefit your construction site by enhancing safety awareness. Displaying a large banner advising caution to a restricted area can decrease liability by raising awareness of possible hazards. When warnings are highly visible, workers and visitors are more likely to see the caution signs and follow their instructions. This ushers in peace of mind for managers and owners of a construction company. AMP specializes in business print and design, so we’ve got you covered.
