What Makes a Good Door Sign?

Door signs aren’t very complicated. At least, not until you have to design one or have one designed for your business. We see countless door signs in Cheyenne every day, but we usually don’t stop to think about them all that much. Not consciously, anyway. Door signs and graphics can have a significant impact on us subconsciously. But we don’t stop to look at the detail of every door sign we see. We don’t question the efficacy of every door sign in Cheyenne. But when you need a door sign yourself . . . what do you do? What makes a good door sign?



We’re going to discuss a number of different types of different door signs with slightly different purposes made of different materials. But one thing remains key for all door signs: placement. Placement is key to the effectiveness of all signs and door signs are no different, so don’t try to overthink this. Door signs should be centered and at eye-level. If you’re using extensive graphics, you can use an image that extends to the corners, but all pertinent text should be big, clear, and easy to read.

Understand the purpose


Make sure you know what you’re trying to accomplish with your door sign. Door signs are great for identifying your business and branding the immediate environment around it. If your business has a logo, this is a great place to use it. The same is true for a pithy slogan. Door signs are also a great place to state your hours of operation.

Mobile door signs


“Mobile door signs?”, you might be asking, “Doors can move?”. They can when they are the door of a vehicle. Vehicle graphics are an incredibly cost-effective way to market your business, and some vehicle graphics include or can even consist entirely of door graphics. For these door signs, simple, bold, clear, and legible text is more important than ever because people will be trying to read your door sign as you drive by them, or vice versa. The smaller your sign or graphic, the less expensive it is likely to be, but then it will also be harder to see and read, so you have to strike the right balance for your business and your budget.
