If you’ve ever found yourself wandering the aisles of your favorite store, rushing to try and find that last product on your list, you know the importance of good store signage.

Draw Customers In
Whether it’s a hand-drawn chalkboard advertisement in front of your entryway or brightly colored signs in the windows, how you draw customers into your store matters. Take advantage of windows, and entryway signage to get shoppers’ attention and show off some of your store’s personality. You can also add signage to floor mats to further personalize store entry and exit points.
Show You Care
Signage that meets customers special needs shows that you care. Whether it’s ADA-compliant signs in key areas or bilingual signage for your ESL customers, this signage is a vital part of your customer service approach.
You can also go a step further with special signage that makes customers smile. Does your business have a sense of humor? Add fun signs in unexpected places. Want customers to leave feeling good about themselves? Complimentary signage near mirrors can subtly convince consumers to make the purchase.
Highlight Hot Deals
Draw customers to specials with signage that promote new items, clearance, and special deals. Use bright colors, big fonts, and attention-getting exclamation marks when appropriate. Place these special items - and their signs - throughout the store to encourage shoppers to browse for more deals. It’s especially easy to place signage on round clothing racks and promo tables.
