Great signage makes a great impression
The most important part of creating a great first impression is great signage! The outside of your building and shop windows should proudly display your new look, enticing your target customer to come inside and check out what you have to offer.
The outside of the building is a good place to start, and a 3D sign, flat panel sign or light-box is a good idea as main sign. It's a good idea to utilise existing features of the building, so if there's a veranda with a flat face, or a fascia that juts out, can it be used to clad with flat panel signage or fix a 3D sign to? Hanging light-boxes are a great idea if you're situated on a city street where the top of your building is hidden to pedestrians. Illumination by LEDs is a great idea to save on power and get a really bright and striking result. Your front windows are a blank canvas, but make sure not to fill them up with clutter. Elements from your logo like patterns and repeated logo silhouettes are good to use on your windows in computer cut vinyl, serving a functional purpose (stopping people walking into the glass) and tying your look together. Check out our gallery of retail fit-outs for some ideas on our website www.itsvisual.com.au.
Inside the shop a 3D sign on the wall behind the counter can look stunning. Raising the logo off the wall lifts the look and creates a really professional finish. Point of sale is another option to catch attention and boost sales. Some options for point of sale include pull-up banners, vinyl banners, corflute signs, corflute cutouts, stickers, vinyl lettering, vinyl logos, flags and posters. At It's Visual we have a large format digital printer, so can create full colour bright high-quality graphics to point of sale.
At the end of the day there's a huge range of options to choose from, so you really need to sit down and define your audience and your product, then have a look at what has been done in some other retail fitouts to get some ideas. Why not head over to our retail fit-outs gallery on our website and then give the team at It's Visual a call to discuss your needs.
