Choosing the right size for your sign

Choosing the right size for your sign
Custom metal signs are a great way to add a personal touch to your home, property, or business. They can be used to display your family or property name, address, business logo, or any other information you want to share with the world. However, choosing the right size sign can be a bit tricky. In this article, we will discuss some important things to consider when deciding on the size of your custom metal sign.

First and foremost, consider the space you have available. The size of your sign should be proportionate to the space it will occupy. A sign that is too small may not be visible from a distance, while a sign that is too large may overwhelm the space and look out of place. Take measurements of the area where you plan on placing your sign and use those dimensions as a guide for choosing the appropriate size.

(Tip: If you're not a visual person, physically creating a mock up using a piece of cardboard (or whatever you hand on hand) can help.)

Next, think about the style of sign you want. Do you want your sign to stand out or blend in? A sign that stands out will be larger and more eye-catching, while a sign that blends in will be smaller and less noticeable. Consider the overall aesthetic of the space where you plan on placing your sign. If the space is already visually busy, a smaller, more subtle sign may be a better choice. If the space is relatively plain, a larger, more decorative sign may be more appropriate.

Another important factor to consider is the distance from which your sign will be viewed. If your sign will be viewed from a distance, such as from the street, it will need to be larger in order to be visible. On the other hand, if your sign will be viewed up close, a smaller sign may be sufficient. Take into account the typical viewing distance and adjust the size of your sign accordingly.

It's also important to consider the information you want to include on your sign. If you have a lot of information to share, such as a business name, logo, phone number, and address, you may need a larger sign in order to fit everything. If you only need to display a name or simple message, a smaller sign may be sufficient.

Finally, consider your budget. Larger signs will typically cost more than smaller signs, so be sure to factor in the cost when deciding on the size of your sign. However, it's important to remember that a custom metal sign is an investment that will last for many years, so it's worth spending a little extra to get the size and style that best fits your needs. 

In a nutshell, choosing the right size custom metal sign requires careful consideration of a variety of factors, including the space available, the style of sign desired, the viewing distance, the information to be included, and the budget. By taking these factors into account, you can ensure that your custom metal sign is the perfect size for your needs.
