About Outdoor Signs

Outdoor Signs

Outdoor signs play a crucial role in the business landscape, serving as silent yet impactful ambassadors for brands and companies. These signs are often the first interaction a potential customer has with a business, making them essential in creating a strong and lasting first impression.

The absence of outdoor signs can significantly impact a business's ability to attract and retain customers. In a visually driven consumer culture, an unmarked business is often an overlooked one. Outdoor signage is a fundamental aspect of physical marketing strategies, crucial for maintaining competitiveness in the market.

Moreover, outdoor signs are often a business’s most cost-effective form of advertising. Unlike other marketing mediums that require ongoing expenditure, a one-time investment in a durable, well-designed sign continues to work for the business day and night, all year round.

In many cases, outdoor signs are also a regulatory requirement, especially for businesses such as restaurants, hotels, and other public service establishments. These signs may provide essential information like operating hours, health and safety notices, and accessibility features.

  • Many cities and landlords have requirements for signs, such as installation, construction of business signs for safety, sign size, signs type, brightness, color temperature of LED, etc. Before you decide to order custom signs, please be sure to understand clearly to avoid unnecessary loss.
  • Outdoor signage needs to be weather-resistant, waterproof, and made from materials suitable for outdoor environments. Therefore, if your sign needs to be used in a marine environment, areas with frequent heavy rains, areas with extreme high/low temperatures, or areas with strong ultraviolet rays, please inform us in advance to avoid the sign being unable to be used. in your area.
  • If you plan to use LED signs, it is recommended to set up a weak current box with cooling holes within 5 meters (about 16 feet 4 inches) of the installation position of the sign to place the AC transformer. If the distance is too far, the DC line loss will be too high, which will affect the service life of the LED and the brightness of the signage. The AC transformer will generate heat when it is working, if it cannot dissipate heat in time, it will seriously affect the service life of the AC transformer.


Brand Identity and Visibility
Outdoor signs are pivotal in establishing and reinforcing a company's brand identity. They provide a visual representation of the brand, featuring logos, colors, and styles that are synonymous with the business. These signs increase brand visibility, ensuring that a business stands out in its physical location, be it a bustling city center or a quiet suburban area.
Attracting Customers
One of the primary functions of outdoor signs is to attract customers. Well-designed signs can catch the eye of passersby, drawing them into the business. They are particularly effective in high-traffic areas, where a captivating sign can distinguish a business from its competitors.
Directional and Wayfinding Information
Outdoor signs also serve a practical purpose by providing directional and wayfinding information. They guide customers to a business's location, which is especially important for new or off-the-beaten-path establishments. This functionality improves the customer experience by making businesses easily accessible.
Advertising and Promotions
Outdoor signs are powerful tools for advertising and promotions. Businesses use them to showcase special offers, promotions, new product launches, and events. This constant exposure can lead to increased foot traffic and sales.

Outdoor signs are often installed using these methods:

Hanging Installation
Use stainless steel rope, stainless steel chain or stainless steel tube to hang from the ceiling or the bracket.
Raceway Installation
Raceway is a track of metal tubing that carries and hides wires and cables on the surface of a wall. The signage will be installed on it first, and then the whole thing will be installed on the wall. Raceway installation can reduce the holes that need to drill on the backing wall, easy installation and maintenance.
Wall Mounted Installation
Signs are installed on the backing wall directly, using stud bolts by default.
  • Except for large signs and signs that require professional equipment such as scissor lift to complete the installation, the installation of signs in most cases is relatively simple. But we still recommend that you hire a professional sign installer to install, only in this way can ensure that the sign is installed safely and correctly, and ensure the display effect of the sign.
  • If you can't find a suitable sign installer locally, please tell us the sign installation address, and we can help you to contact our partners near you. At present, we can provide such services to the vast majority of customers in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and other regions.


Generally speaking, the height of a letter has a certain proportional relationship with its viewing distance, that is, the viewing distance of a letter is usually 100 to 120 times the height of the letter. For example, if you want your sign to be visible from 100 feet away, the letters need to be at least 10 inches high, or if you want your signage to be visible from 100 meters away, the letters need to be about 100 mm high.


The maintenance of outdoor signs is very simple. Just wipe it with a soft cloth dipped in clean water. After wiping, it is best to dry it with a dry soft cloth. Never use liquids containing organic cleaning fluids or scratch with hard objects as this can cause surface damage to the sign.

  • In three years, if it is not the man-included damage, we will send you the damage part.
  • If you choose the lighted signs with LED inside, after 2 years, because of the half-life, the LED lighting would be weaker. In order to keep the effect of the signs, we suggest changing the LED lights when you feel the brightness could not reach your requirement.

  • We are a sign manufacturer in China.

  • By default, we use DHL for transportation, and we can also use express companies such as UPS and FEDEX. These express companies can transport goods to many places of the world.

  • If your local or the lord has some specific requirements for the signage, please send these specific requirements to us. Our signage products have UL certification.

  • Under normal circumstances, excluding the necessary communication time, the approximate timeline is as follows:

    • Detailed design: 1-3 working days
    • Production time: within 15 working days
    • Shipping: DHL takes about a week

    So it takes about 25-30 days total.

    If you order a lot of signage, or are close to major holidays, such as China National Day, New Year’s Day, Christmas, and Spring Festival, it may increase.

  • Each of our quotations has fully taken into account the discounts we can offer. If you only produce 1 set of signs, basically there will be no discounts. Of course, if you order a lot of signs, a dozen sets, dozens of sets, or even hundreds of sets, these can significantly reduce the production cost. Anyway, if you have any question about the price, please contact our salesman, we will try our best to give you the best price.

  • You can always find a cheaper supplier, but there are usually some reasons for being cheap. We prefer that you consider the quality and service life of the signs. After all, if you have to replace a set of signs in a few months, even if you do not consider the production cost, the installation cost also would be a lot of money to point out. Anyway, if you have any question about the price, please contact our salesman, we will try our best to give you the best price.

  • We can produce almost all kinds of signs, but because we are a sign maker in China, you have to consider the shipping cost if you buy from us. For many cheap business signs, the production is very convenient, even if most costs in the United States will be higher than that in China, but once the expensive international shipping costs are considered, it is generally cheaper to buy locally in the United States. For such a signage case, we will recommend customers to buy locally. Of course, sourcing from China can be a good option if you’re ordering such a large quantity that international shipping isn’t the main cost, as many American advertising signage companies do.

  • Our signage products have the UL certification and fully meet the US standards, so there will be no difference in use. Specifically, some of the processes may be different, because different factories will have different equipment, and the process might also be different. In addition, the row material may be different, the biggest difference is the thickness of the material. We are a sign factory in China. In China, the unit of thickness is the metric unit, while the US uses the English unit. For example, the 1/2-inch thick material used in the signs made locally in the United States is not available here, and usually uses 10mm (0.39″) or 15mm(0.59″).

  • We usually use vector design files in ai, cdr, eps, svg formats, vector design drawing files in PDF format are also available. If your design drawing is made by AutoCAD, please provide the version of AutoCAD 2007.

We can advise you or help you modify your logo design so it can be produced.

  • Yes, we provide color matching service, it’s free. We use the Pantone color card for color matching by default, you only need to provide the Pantone value of the color, but generally speaking, the amount of paint required for the production of a set of signs is very small, which is not suitable for using a dedicated color matching machine. Therefore, in most cases we use manual color correction, which is only a simulation of Pantone colors, and we cannot guarantee an exact match.

  • We lovingly pack every order to ensure that your signs arrive in pristine condition. UPS assures us that their delivery personnel take every precaution to handle your package with care.

  • Unfortunately, DHL and UPS won’t deliver to a P.O. box, so we’ll need a physical street address.

  • Unless the installation of large signs will involve the use of professional engineering equipment, the installation of signs is not complicated in most cases. However, we still recommend that you hire a professional sign installer who can make your sign look better, stronger, and more safe, especially if your signs are illuminated signs.

  • We are very sorry, we are a sign factory in China and currently do not have any offices and branches in other countries and regions, so we cannot provide you with installation services. But we have partners all over the world, and if you can’t find the right installer, we can help you find one.

  • Usually the maintenance of the signage is very simple, just wipe off the dust with a soft cloth dipped in clean fresh water.
