5 Types of Signage That Can Be Illuminated

“Businesses surveyed 7,203 first-time customers within 30 to 45 days after the installation of a new sign and asked ‘how did you learn about us?’” Interestingly, 46% of people surveyed answered that they learned about the business from the sign. (Source). That means that almost half of those new customers came as a direct result of investing in a new sign.

If you weren’t already convinced that signage is an absolute necessity, then this statistics probably did the job.  If you still need more persuading, check out our blog on sign statistics here.

Once businesses realize that they need a sign, the discussion of sign type always arises. Nine times out of ten, Landmark Signs will recommend that a sign be illuminated if at all possible. However, not everyone sees the benefit of a lighted sign, and looking to cut costs, opts out of this eye-catching sign feature.
