So, making sure your signage leaves people with a positive impact is crucial in encouraging consumers to enter your business and make a purchase. Plus, their attention-grabbing effect will actively add to your sales. A win, win. Choose simple, bold messaging and branding for maximum impact. Take in your surroundings and ask yourself, how can your business stand out from others? Keep it fresh Maintaining a positive impression is so important as research by Signs Express has shown that 98%** of consumers are less likely to conduct business with an organisation if their signage is in disrepair. So, it’s essential to keep your signage in a good clean condition if you want to attract and retain customers. Make sure your signage reflects your current brand image for a consistent and identifiable look and feel to your premises. Be relevant Banners, posters and promotional window graphics can be used as cost-effective temporary displays.
