Compelling retail signage should quickly catch customers’ attention and influence them to act on the message the sign is displaying. Check out these tips for creating effective retail signage:

  1. Choose appropriate colors. Be sure the color scheme you choose for your signage aligns with your branding and does not create a readability issue. For instance, using light colors on a white background may make the text hard to read.
  2. Display a clear, concise message. Simplicity is key, but don’t be afraid to get creative! Customers should be able to consume and understand the message in a matter of seconds. Craft a clear message that quickly informs customers why they should buy your product or service.
  3. Make the copy readable. Choosing the right font to convey your message is key. Go with an easy-to-read font that reflects the character and message of your company. For lengthier messages, keep the font especially simple.
  4. Size it right. A sign that is too big can be overwhelming, but a sign that is too small can get lost. Take time to measure and simulate different sign sizes to determine which size is right for your store.
