Do You Need a More Permanent Solution?

When you are shopping for a sign, it is important to consider how much use you will need out of the sign. There are many different materials for signs, ranging from temporary, to semi-permanent to permanent. You will need to weigh your plans for using the sign before deciding which material will work best for your needs.

Here are some tips to help you decide if you need a permanent sign for your business.

How long will you be using your sign? If you need a sign to promote a sale that will only last for a brief time, then a temporary or semi-permanent solution will work well for you. If you do not plan to use the sign again, vinyl lettering can be used to advertise your event in the front window of your store. If you do plan to use the sign in the future, a vinyl bannercan easily be installed and removed, and then stored for future use.

However, if you plan on using your sign to direct customers to a specific location, give the name of your company, or for any use that requires day-in and day-out use of a sign, an aluminum sign is a good idea.

What type of weather does your area experience? If your area is frequently mild and does not have excessive storms, or winds, a vinyl banner can easily replace a more permanent material. These banners will hold up well to light and rain. If they are installed properly, they can even withstand most winds.

In the event that your area has frequent severe weather or it is often windy, you may want to consider a more permanent solution. Vinyl banners, although strong, may rip if the winds are strong enough. Instead of ending up with a ruined sign, it may be a good idea to go with a more permanent solution.

How long do you plan to stay at your current location? If you are renting your office or store space, you may want to consider purchasing a vinyl sign that can easily travel with you. In some cases, landlords or property managers will not allow you to attach a permanent sign to your building. In the event that you may need to move your location, a vinyl banner will work well.

If you own your own building and do not foresee moving in the near future, then an aluminum sign will work well and provide you with years of service. If you are truly concerned about the longevity of your stay at your current location, temporary vinyl lettering will work well and allow you to easily remove your sign when it is time to move on.

Your decision on the material for your sign is one that will have to last you. It is not cost effective to purchase one type of sign, only to realize later on that a more permanent sign would have served your needs more adequately. Take some time to weigh all of your options before making your decision. You'll be able to save time in the future and money on your signage needs.
