Custom signs give you the freedom to design your unique sign. These are usually in a template form where you can add your text, upload a logo, etc. Our completely customizable ‘upload your own art’ signs bring personalization to the next level by allowing you to do more. With these signs, you can have your design transformed into a sign. This can include everything from the sign text, font, and alignment to colors, motifs, graphics, and more.
Creating an effective sign message is easy as long as you keep a few things in mind. Your message should be specific and clear, as a vaguely worded text can defeat the purpose. Ensure to put clear instructions, prohibitions, warnings, contact details, etc. At that same time, you may not want to use too many words on your sign but only use the words that are absolutely necessary to get the message across. It is mostly a good idea to keep things short and simple.
It is also recommended to create a sign message with three parts, a headline text, an explanatory text, and a call to action. You could, where possible, try and include an element of humor as such signs tend to work better as attention grabbers. Some smart wordplay or a cleverly drafted text can get you all the eyeballs you desire and more!

The font you should choose for your custom sign will depend on the message the sign conveys. When it’s a simple, straightforward message such as a warning or a prohibition, it may be a good idea to stick to an easy-to-read, headline-style font. An example of this is Franklin Gothic.
When you are using a sign like a designer sign, you may opt for a more elegant or fancier option, such as Helvetica. When deciding the font for your sign, it may be a good idea to stick to one or maybe two styles to prevent the sign from looking cluttered. Font size is an equally important consideration and will depend on factors such as sign size, which part of the text must be emphasized, viewing distance, etc.
