Importance of Signs

If you operate or plan to start a business, it is important to consider how you plan to use signage. A creative, attractive sign can propel your business into a higher standard so you stand out apart you’re your competition. says, customers are more likely to purchase from a business they have already heard of, so a sign helps plant the seed for current and all future sales.
Sign Function
Signs serve like a silent salesperson for your business. Your exterior signs will draw attention to your place of business and help differentiate it from others along your street or complex. Interior signs help customers locate merchandise and reinforce impulse sales. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration website, signs are a primary link between businesses and customers.
Sign Types
A beautiful exterior sign can be mounted to the wall, monument, small wall or posted in the ground. The goal is to have a sign that is apart of the design of your landscape but stand out so it can be seen. Building-mounted signs are attached to the building and need to be seen from a roadway, parking lot or will be useful in areas with high foot traffic, such as shopping areas.
Sign Significance
Signs are an essential component of a your overall marketing strategy. A sign might need to contain a business's logo in order to reinforce your brand. But interior signs need to draw attention to promotions and to convey information about the business. An exterior sign is visible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so its effect is continuous.
Sign Benefits
Some businesses have limited marketing funds so their signs can be a cost-effective form of marketing. According to the SBA website, the cost-per-thousand, a common method used to measure the cost of reaching a thousand potential customers, is much lower for signage than other types of advertising, such as radio, televisions and newspapers.
Final Considerations
Signs aren’t limited to your place of business. You can use vehicle graphics as a form of mobile advertising. Vehicle graphics and wraps are an effective branding tool in today’s marketing jungle.

A fascinating exhibit opened recently at the UA Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium featuring Arizona's first inhabitants, the Trilobites. Long before the dinosaurs ruled the earth, the trilobites ruled the seas. Ancient relatives of lobsters and horseshoe crabs, trilobites flourished in the warm seas that covered much of Arizona millions of years ago.

Sign Age had the opportunity to produce the graphic posters on display throughout the exhibit. It was a lot of fun to learn about Arizona's first inhabitants.

Affordable Laser Engraved Signs

There are many reasons to get a laser engraved sign, plaque, award or promotional product. But if you’re looking for a laser engraved product you already know why. For those that are unfamiliar with the benefits of laser engraving here are some helpful tips and ideas.

Sign Age’s laser engraver is extremely versatile. Our laser cuts and etches a wide variety of signage materials, including acrylic, wood, plastic, engraving plastic, sign foam, and much more. The material you want to use depends on your project and the style you are trying to achieve. Sign Age can help you make these decisions. We’ll also factor in how durable your product needs to be.

There are two types of laser created products. One method is to engrave a product. That is essentially marking the top surface of a material with a pattern, logo or piece of art. The second method is to precision cut materials into shapes, logos or patterns.


    Engraving Materials: Wood, acrylic, plastic, glass, leather, corian, fabric, coated metals, anodized aluminum, stone, marble, ceramics, mylar, pressboard and more.

Non-contact laser marking is an excellent method of permanently marking your metal products. Instead of cutting into the metal like our router, out laser marks only the top of the metal. Wherever the laser hits the metal marking spray, a reaction is created where the spray bonds to the metal, creating a permanent black mark.

Laser Cutting:

  Cutting Materials: Wood, acrylic, plastic, delrin, cloth, leather, melamine, paper, rubber, veneer, cork and more.

The laser creates a beam of light that is used to cut through or etch the material, so there is no part of the laser system in contact with the material. It is amazingly precise, following the pattern of your logo, photo or design.

Some of the laser engraved products we’ve done include directional signs for business or apartment complexes, award plaques and gifts, fine cut letters for trade shows, lobby signs, POP display designs, nameplates and more! We really can stretch our creative limits with our laser engraver and we want to help you stretch yours too!
