First impressions are very important in the retail store business because most customers make their judgements and purchase decisions based on this, which is why shopping centers are always so visually alluring. Brick-and-mortar store entrances, building facades, and storefronts are designed to seduce potential clients to walk in.
So, what is the most crucial component of your shop front design?
None other than your signboard! Apart from exhibiting your company name and brand, your digital sign must be so attractive that it literally makes people stop in their tracks! To make that happen, you need to think of the most contemporary LED sign design ideas and how they can be used to grab attention of passersby.
Why is it important to choose the right type of lighting according to the architecture and design of your space?
This is because different sign boards serve different purposes and are in line with how your brand positions itself. For example, blinking lights attract attention, and bright neon lights in luminous colors are a great way to make your sign stand out in a festive, party-like atmosphere. A more subtle, yet rich look could be a gold finished 3D LED sign that conveys an impression of a store selling rich and high-quality products. There are also large sky signs placed on the top of tall buildings, making your brand visible from far, far away, adding to the city skyline and becoming prominent landmarks.
Effectiveness of LED Glass Sign Boards
If you are in search of a large primary sign, the concept of an LED glass sign board should most likely intrigue you. LED lights can illuminate the lettering as well as the borders of the sign to make it stand out. The most effective format of LED glass sign board is with etched lettering or graphics, and illuminated edges for added attractiveness. White LEDs, colored LEDs or a sign that allows LEDs to change color are also available based on your requirements. When LEDs are added to a glass sign board, even the smallest of sizes will surely stand out.
Etched Glass Wall Display illuminated by LED
Etched glass wall displays are a form of decorative, translucent glass that obscures visibility, yet allows diffused light to pass through. The process of altering a glass surface to create a decorative effect such as artwork or lettering is what is called ‘etching’. Etched glass LED wall displays are ideal for indoor and outdoor signage in commercial settings, and any other location where a glass screen or partition is used. For complex and decorative designs, acid-etched glass provides a distinct, smooth and satin appearance. For a more high-quality finish for larger projects, sandblasted glass is a better option. In making your choice of which type of etched glass to use, consider the level of privacy needed and how much light needs to filter through.
LED Glass Sign Board with text
A basic LED lit glass signboard is a sleek and clean design that can blend in with any exterior signage or indoor setting of a contemporary and luxe business. You could opt for a clear glass or textured glass with vinyl lettering mounted with silverware to make it seem like the sign is floating in its place.
LED Glass signage with neon colors
Back by popular demand, the old glass tubes filled with neon gas are preferred by many businesses today. Neon lighting can be incorporated with LED glass signage to present a bright, unique and eye-catching sign. Text and letters created in neon glass signage can really stand out and are used most often for directional signage, and in casual, high energy settings such as bars, lounges, clubs and so on.
LED Glass Sign Board with Acrylics
Sign board designs come in a wide variety and acrylics are a feature that adds versatility to basic LED glass sign boards. An acrylic glow sign board represents the personality of your business, by choosing the correct design options and LED colors. By setting the correct tone and atmosphere, business deals can be made more conducive.
Acrylic glass sign boards come in a stencil cut variety when very small and intricate letters or designs have to be cut. Acrylic letters are not 3D but are hollowed out from the base frame, just like how a stencil is cut from paper. LED lighting is embedded within the letters for a beautiful glow.
In-cut acrylic letter boards are another option, where the base frame surface is hollowed out to fit the acrylic letters. The only difference is that the letter protrude about 5mms from the surface of the frame and LEDs are placed inside the board, just below the acrylic letters.
These modern LED signage designs are ideal for businesses that have a lot of content to display in addition to their name and logo, such as opening hours, motto, contact details, etc.
Glass Sign Boards illuminated by LEDs with 3D Signs
In this design, the sign comprises stand-alone letters only that can be fixed directly on the wall, wherever needed, and are not mounted on a baseboard. These are very similar to a 3D letter board except that the letters have a metal profile on the side and the light glow is visible only from the front of the surface. Used mostly by corporate offices and retail stores, this LED glass signboard design is very attractive indeed.
Backlit Glass Sign Boards with LEDs
If you are in search for an indoor LED office signage that adds an element of interest and visual excitement to your office space, backlit glass signboards illuminated with low-voltage, high quality LED lights should be your solution. Ideally, these lights are white in color, but the RGB color combination can also be used if you want an exact color from the palette for a specific striking effect.
With a wide variety of LED glass sign board designs to choose from, you need to ensure you choose the best option for your storefront or wherever else you are looking to place the sign. Take into consideration the lighting and design of your space before you choose which retail signage will be most attractive and suited for its purpose.
