Business Development Executive for Signs Express, Tony Mills took part in a live phone-in for BBC Radio Bristol this week, discussing grammar and spelling mistakes in signage.
The morning show, hosted by John Darvall posed the question – 'is today’s bad grammar and poor spelling down to ‘text-speak’ and social media abbreviations of the English language?'
Have our standards slipped?
Tony agreed that while this may be the case, it is down to the professionalism of the sign company to check and to highlight any errors to a customer, before the sign project reaches the installation stage – saving potentially a lot of embarrassment for both parties.
A sign is often the first point of conversation to a customer. A well designed, manufactured and installed sign should communicate the nature of a company or brand. Independent research shows poorly written, scruffy signage can deter potential customers from choosing one company over another.
