Blade Signs

What are Blade Signs?

Blade Signs are flat signs that mark a business or location. A common everyday example of a blade sign is a traditional street sign. Blade signs can either be attached to a pole, as a street sign is, or affixed directly to the building it advertises so it appears to be sticking out from it. They are sometimes also called ‘swinging signs’ because they can hang on hooks or chains. Blade signs can be lit internally or from an outside source. Blade signs can come in all shapes, sizes, materials and designs and can be found at indoor or outdoor malls, city streets, or any other area that gets a lot of foot traffic.

What is the Benefit of a Blade Sign?

An important requirement of a blade sign is that it runs perpendicular to the flow of traffic. For example, if you are driving down the street, you will be able to read the street sign as you approach it. Otherwise, you might miss the street altogether. The same applies to a blade sign in front of a store. It is meant to catch the eye of people walking by and bring the store to their attention. An attractive and interesting sign is a great way to draw people to a shop they might have passed by without noticing.
