0ustom Signs

The number of custom signs in the market today is simply overwhelming. And while this can be advantageous, there are times when it is the exact opposite, as buyers can easily be confused about which ones to buy. It is for this reason that we write this article, to help you choose the best custom signs specific to your purpose.

But first things first, do you really know custom signs?

What are Custom Signs?

Custom signs are simply signs but have been customized to suit your individual needs. They can be to show direction, some danger ahead or anything else.

Customized signs are created and selected with a specific purpose. When you have something that you need people to know specifically, you choose a sign for it.

For a custom sign to be effective, you have come up with a message that is clear and on-point. And this is the whole purpose of having custom signs, as they are clear and to the point. If the message intended is not clear, then it loses the whole meaning.

One great thing about custom signs is that you can make it yourself, as long as you have all the materials. Alternatively, you can hire designers such as the GS-JJ that have specialized in custom signs, and you will get a quality sign for your purpose.

What are the Types of Custom Signs?

As already mentioned, the number of signs available in the market today is overwhelming. The type of sign you choose depends on several factors, top among them is the purpose. But even before you start shopping for a custom sign, it is nice to know the various types of signs at your disposal.

Custom Wood Signs

These are custom signs made from wood. They are easy to make as you can simply curve wood and place it where you want people to see. The wood should be very strong and protected from termites; otherwise, they will not last for long.

As already mentioned, custom wood signs are not made from ordinary wood. These signs are characterized by strong wood. Those who create custom wood signs do so by considering the best wood from different places.

If you want them to last long, those custom wood signs have to be curved from hardwood. Also note that the kind of wood you use to curve them will depend on your location, given that there are areas with termites that can easily destroy the custom wood signs.

While it is easy to create these types of signs, having the help of professionals can be a plus if you are looking for high-quality and long-lasting signs.

Custom Metal Signs

Custom metal signs are signs made from metal. You can also make them from any type of metal. Just use paint to create the message and make it as clear as possible.

Characteristics of custom metal signs;

--Curving through metal is not as easy as using wood.

There are many types of metals. Each type serves a specific purpose and is used in a specific place. For example, stainless steel extremely strong and works best for outdoor metal signs. Brass and copper, on the other hand, serve best for signs to be placed on the table in offices.

You only need to identify the material that fulfills your desires.

The best way to get the most out of your custom business signs is to create them with experts. They know the best way to create them and the message that attracts your customers the best.

Custom Outdoor Signs

These types of signs do not serve any one particular purpose. As suggested by the name, custom outdoor signs are put outside, whether within your yard, or in the woods, or wherever. They could be at a campsite showing campers routes to follow or simply signs outside a shop.

Custom outdoor signs can be used to represent any message. When you want to show people for example that you have put up a recreational park, you can use custom outdoor signs.

They can be made from any material. Some people prefer to use wood for these signs because they can be easily turned into the most amazing signs.

The message you on your custom outdoor signs determines whether or not they serve the purpose.

Custom business signs, custom yard signs and many others can all be classified as outdoor signs.

If you want to offer discounts on your goods and beat competition, simply display them on custom outdoor signs. This is the easiest way to provide information to the customers that walk by your shop.

Doors also receive custom door signs. The signs are placed on the doors, for example, to show who the office belongs to. Door signs are essential to help remove any confusion in case you want to enter any office.

If you walk in buildings that have very many door offices, you can know the office you want to get to by looking at the door signs. In hospitals, for example, they send patients to meet experts in different rooms. It is not however easy to find the rooms unless they are clearly labeled using custom door signs.

Custom Plastic Signs

These are signs designed using plastic materials. They are widely used in various places. The reason why custom plastic signs are widely accepted is that they are resistant to weather conditions, and are unreactive. This is not always the case with custom metal signs.

In most cases, custom plastic signs are used indoors for particular purposes.

Considerations of Custom Signs

When shopping around for the best custom signs, there are a number of things you need to remember. Below are some of the must-haves, if you want your purpose to be achieved effectively:

Start by Establishing Your Need

Make your goals clear. There is always something that drives you to want custom signs, use that as your motivation. Note that every sign serves its purpose. Signs are supposed to show clearly what they are meant for. For this reason, the first thing you want to do is ensure the signs are made very clear. The message should be clear enough to achieve its purpose

The Material of the Sign

The purpose of the sign will always inform the kind of material from which the sign is made. If your sign will be used for outdoor purposes, then you might have to consider buying custom metal signs.

The Climate of Your Area

In most cases, outdoor signs are determined by the weather. Note that there are many metals that are reactive to the various weather elements, and thus getting them to rust is easy. Before you purchase a custom made sign, you have to be sure of the weather within your locality.

Position of the Signs

Custom signs cannot be placed just anywhere. Before you place your order, start by establishing where the signs should be placed. Signs are supposed to be viewed, and you must identify a place where they get viewed.

Irrespective of how attractive your custom sign is, positioning it wrongly would only help to render it useless. The intention of the signs is best achieved when it is positioned correctly. To get the most out of the signs, ensure that you place the sign in an open place where it can be seen clearly.

If you position them in hidden places, people will not be able to see them. And for that, you will have failed completely.


Custom signs are not something new today. They have become very common because of the service they give.

Choosing the right signage service provider is always an issue. And one simple mistake when selecting a signage designer can mess everything up for you. This is why we always recommend the GS-JJ experts, and for a purpose:
