Church’s and religious places of worship are very important in our communities. They bring the community together, provide an environment for reflection, words of encouragement and connects us socially. In these trying times, places of worship are the safe haven for the community to gather and reflect on the positive aspects of their faith.
One of the hardest working assets of your place of worship are your signs. They work 24/7 informing your community of local and religious events. They also inform potential new members about you and what your congregation stands for. An old sign without means to communicate events is almost as bad as not having a sign at all. As a matter of fact, a poorly maintained sign may turn away potential members.
There are many options available to fit any budget. Here are just a few exterior sign types that surely will get you noticed:
Banners: Banners are typically a temporary type of sign used to promote special events, new programs or welcoming new members. They are inexpensive, have a relatively fast turnaround time and are easy to install or remove. As a bonus they work well for both exterior and interior displays allowing versatility and reusability.
Post and panel signs: There are a lot of options in this category to meet a wide range of budgets. For those on a tighter budget we can make wooden post and panel signs that have around a 5 year life span but at a very reasonable cost. You can also move up to custom aluminum post and panel signs with a wide variety of designs, including changeable copy sections to allow you to change your message for seasonal or promotional events. Post and panel signs come in a wide range of materials, sizes, shapes and offer a large area for displaying your information and branding.
Internally or externally illuminated monument signs: Monument signs really make a statement. This type of sign is installed in the ground with either fabricated metal, masonry and metal or faux finishes. These are custom designed to meet your need and match your architecture and the personality of your place of worship. This option is more costly than banners or post and panel signs but creates a much more polished look for your site.
Electronic Message Centers: Many cost developments in this category are allowing for many institutions to install electronic messaging where daily and weekly messages can be communicated to the community. These signs are also a landmark for these institutions and the signage can be a pillar of the community.
In addition to your exterior signage, consider your interior signage and review the continuity with style, color and messaging. Uniform styles, colors and messaging provides a sense of stability, forethought and organization.
