Would you like to have tenants flock to your vacant office suites or storefronts? Did you know that you greatly enhance the attractive nature of your office building or shopping venue with something as simple as complimentary tenant signs?
Signage Products to Attract New Tenants!
Orange County property management companies have come to realize that by offering something a little extra by way of amenities, they may spend a small amount of money at the outset but gain eager tenants who gladly sign on the dotted line. This gives them a leg up on the competition that is also trying to rent out vacant spaces. What are the most promising signage products you might offer?
Your commercial tenants use the lettering to display company names, provide niche information to consumers and to publish hours of operation, contact information and QR (quick response) codes. Lettering is inexpensive but immediately brands and markets a business. For a tenant, this is a desirable signage product since it is highly visible to consumers. Because there are so many different styles, fonts and colors available, you have the option of choosing lettering that is acceptable to you and therefore offers some uniformity to the look of your building’s windowpanes. Yet within those guidelines, your tenants may still choose to customize their displays.
For the office tenant, the suite sign displays the name of the company, the suite number and sometimes a little bit of extra information such as a niche explanation. Suite signs also set the tone for your building’s harmonious look. Having your corridors display a uniform look of signage options enhances the overall appearance of the office building. This setup gives the venue a professional look. At the same time, tenants like to stand out and brand their companies with conspicuous markers that highlight their colors and penchant for sizing. Do not let the suite sign become a point of contention simply by offering it as a lease-signing bonus.
Acrylic Lobby Signs
Each business needs a lobby sign. Moving frequently costs so much that some companies put the reception area signage on the backburner, which is a serious mistake. You can provide a value-added rental experience just by offering to pay for an acrylic panel with vinyl material displaying the company’s name. This is an outstanding method of showing that your management company cares about tenants and wants their businesses to succeed. In addition, it takes a needed task off the tenant’s to-do list. With so many signage issues already resolved with little more than a signature on a rental agreement, who could resist your building’s amenities?

Solid, attractive and quite tough, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) neither dents nor cracks. It is the type of material that is easy to handle and work with. Decorate it with digitally imprinted vinyl films for added beauty. You probably already know this thermoplastic as the material that pipes are made of. In the signage trade, it excels because of the easy shape customization, smooth exterior and non-glare finish. Here are some examples of what the professionals at America’s Instant Signs have done when creating affordable interior displays using PVC and other materials for Orange County businesses.
Use PVC to route individual letters. Their edges can be smooth or sharp. The fronts of the letters may be sculpted or rounded. We can paint them in any custom color that you select or use digital facings to add texture and color. In this manner, PVC lettering is an excellent material for lobby signs as well as in-office suite signs. Use them for branding your business or for spelling out motivational sayings as well as the company tag line in the conference room.
When you prefer the look of a panel to individual letters, PVC is once again the material that delivers. In this case, it is the depth of the marker that really makes it pop. Business interior displays for Orange County done in this manner include window as well as wall displays. Display your company’s name, highlight your niche, underscore your motto or use the panels to tell the history of your company. Larger paneling is also an excellent focal point for a wall in the break room, where you can then highlight the credo of your customer care or service department.
When you want to go for the gusto with color, you cannot do better than selecting PVC. Displaying multiple colors side by side is a snap. Showing high-quality digital graphics against a light background that does not reflect the sunlight – or artificial light – but allows a great view of the message is a key component of this setup. Create a wall that displays a variety of achievements or inspire students in a school setting with visions of their future selves.
When you are attending trade shows, you are sure to notice that there, too, are plenty of PVC applications. The lightweight nature of the material and the ability to go for size and thickness make them valuable assets in the artful creation of unusual backdrops and tabletop displays. Best of all, this material is inexpensive – a savings that we pass on to you.

When you work with California investment companies and property management groups, the job can sometimes take you out of state. Case in point is the work we just recently did in Texas. Our client was an investment company that took on 22 apartment projects there. We had a professional designer on hand who worked on the development of a color scheme for the individual properties. America’s Instant Signs handled the project management aspect and handled the majority of the signage manufacture.
Cabinet Signs are Long-Lasting and Durable
Working together with the designer, liaising with the investment client, employing eight local sign companies to help with surveys and permits, and finally installing the signs, we nevertheless manufactured the majority of them in our California workshop. These signs were foam monuments, which are famous for their durability. The investment company understood that there was no reason to install brand-new signs when the existing foam markers could simply be refurbished and refaced. Others were too damaged and were replaced with aluminum cabinet markers that featured acrylic lettering and colorful paints.

There is quite a buzz in the local business communities over the installation of exterior MDO digitally printed signs for Orange County. What makes these signs stand out?
What is MDO?
Short for medium density overlay, MDO is most accurately defined as plywood that has been treated with resins to give it a weather-resistant exterior. In fact, this treatment has taken place on the molecular level, which simply means that the resin has become part of the wood fibers. Unlike your standard sheet of plywood, this product can withstand weather and gradual deterioration much longer. In addition, the surface is perfectly smooth.
Why is MDO becoming so popular?
While the board can be painted, it is just as easy to use digitally printed vinyl for the lettering. The results are crisp-looking letters and eye-grabbing color combinations that you can proudly put on your building’s façade. Case in point is Alcove Lighting. This sign displays bold red lettering against a white background. The edge of the sign is framed in red as well.
The resulting look is well-defined and stands out against a somewhat darker building front. In contrast, we also did the sign for Symbaloo. In this case, the white background is covered with a vinyl imprint of powder blue. This color defines the large logo. The lettering is just a bit darker. This look helps the marker to blend in even as it gets the attention of passersby.
Ver Designs have a rather striking logo. Placed on the MDO board with a vinyl print, this signage product presents with the classic black on white look. The edges around the sides are black, too, which creates a chic look that is as sophisticated as it is functional.
Why should I look to this signage product?
Since the product involves the use of plywood, you know that it is exceedingly budget-friendly. Even so, its treatment heightens its useful life, which may sometimes be as long as a decade. Since we use vinyl to create the message, there will be no problem with peeling or fading. The ease of use is another reason why this is the one signage product that would be certain to create a buzz.
While the businesses we have already mentioned have chosen to display their signage on their buildings’ facades right above the entrances, there are other display options as well. For example, a post and panel approach makes this a superbly functional wayfinding marker in a busy medical office complex. Its budget-friendly attributes also endear this product to schools.
When you are ready to commission your MDO signs for Orange County businesses, schools, non-profit organizations and any other types of building setups, call the experts at America’s Instant Signs for information. We gladly bring you a sample of the material and show you sketches that underscore just how amazing this kind of marker can be. If you already have artwork on file for your logo, we can easily incorporate this into the look of the vinyl. If you prefer, we can help you create your customized look from the ground up.
A favorite of schools, faith communities and savvy retailers, changeable readerboard signs for Orange County are here to stay. What makes this signage product so popular is its adaptability to seasonal and organization-specific announcements. Schools welcome students at the end of the summer and inform the community over the course of the school year about events and fundraisers. Churches highlight sermon series and Sunday school hours. Store owners use changeable readerboards to advertise deals, seasonal specials and deep discounts.
The Versatility of Changeable Message Signs
Over the course of time, we have manufactured a wide variety of these markers. Alamitos Intermediate School commissioned a sign that faces traffic and addresses motorists. It prominently displays the name of the school – which is truly a hallmark of these types of signs – and offers four lines of space for text. The letters are easy to read for traffic from both directions. The marker is pole-mounted, which helps it to truly stand out.
In contrast, Benton Middle School incorporated its changeable readerboard sign into a monument marker. Now an attractive part of the landscape, this sign offers three lines of text space. At the top, it highlights the school’s name while right underneath it displays the slogan for the resident sports team. At the bottom of the marker, the board identifies this institution as one of the California Distinguished Schools. This adds a marketing message to the mix.
El Rancho Charter School needed more display space. Five lines offer sufficient room to remind students and parents of upcoming calendar items. As opposed to a pole or monument sign, this product is mounted directly to the school’s façade. Because of its chosen color, it providers a visual contrast to the attractive façade hue, which of course makes it so much more eye-grabbing. In fact, the school liked this display setup so much that the administration commissioned a second sign that hangs to the right of the entrance and discusses fundraisers and early dismissal days. The visual balance of this setup is truly striking.
In some settings, changeable message signs for Orange County perform double duty. For example, Trinity Lutheran Church and Christian School operates not only the faith community on its campus but also a preschool, elementary and middle school. Their readerboard addresses school data and information while also advising church members and visitors of Sunday service times. This readerboard cabinet is part of a monument sign that faces the street.
Ordering Your Sign Is Easy!
Looking over these signs makes it clear that the boards provide companies and organizations with an excellent means for communicating with the public. Moreover, because it is possible to install this signage product in so many different ways, it is clear that it fits onto any property and landscape setup. By choosing the illuminated versions, which let passersby and motorists get a clear look of your message even after dark, you also brand and market your group. A sturdy aluminum construction with translucent polycarbonate faces ensures longevity of your new product. It is simply impossible to go wrong with this excellent signage setup. Call America’s Instant Signs today for more information on readerboards and to get started on your order.
Is there a way to keep advertising your roofing company even after you are done for the day? What about your plumbing, heating and air conditioning, or window installation firm? In fact, you have the option of doing just that with contractor yard signs. Orange County contractors like the idea that they can effectively advertise their companies over the weekends, holidays and when bad weather prevents them from doing work on their clients’ homes.
Why You Need Contractor Yard Signs
Yard signs come in a wide variety of looks. Some feature a niche reference, a company name, a logo and then the contact telephone number. Others focus the attention on the logo and name; the phone number is placed at the bottom of the marker rather than in the middle. Still others display the niche reference and the phone number while not putting too much emphasis on a company name and logo. The choice is yours. When you already have artwork related to flyers you have been handing out, we can work with these graphics to enhance the name recognition of your business.
Are They Durable?
You bet! All-weather yard signs feature an aluminum frame construction. Other markers offer the longevity of coroplast. The message can be digitally imprinted or produced onto vinyl that is then attached to the signage material. Since a memorable marker is one that not everyone else uses, you will be pleasantly surprised to see the wide variety of products that can do the advertising for you.
How DoThey Work?
When you are hired to do a contracting job at a site, ask for permission to put up one or more of your yard signs. Home owners and even general contractors usually do not have a problem with granting your request. Then, display these signs so that they face the street. Quite a few of our contractors order double-sided yard signs simply because there are times when it is more advantageous to place a marker so that it is seen by motorists. As you are working – and even when you finish for the day or week – the sign remains in place and continues to advertise your company.
How Can I Further Enhance My Marketing Approach?
Install contractor truck lettering. Orange County business owners have come to appreciate the marketing opportunities that vehicle lettering, decals and similar vinyl products provide them. In addition to your yard sign, the treated truck now advertises your business and offers more details about your niche than a simple sign could ever provide. Park the truck in front of your jobsite for the day. Use it to drive to the supply center, the fast food restaurant or back to the shop.
Advertise your business all over the city where you have jobs to undertake. Stay at the forefront of the neighbors’ minds by having yard signs during your tenure at the location. This is a powerful one-two marketing punch that is too effective to ignore. Talk to the friendly folks at America’s Instant Signs today for more information and to get started on your order.
Scheduled to run from March 5th to the 7th at the Hilton Anaheim and from the 6th to the 8th at the Anaheim Convention Center, you need cutting edge trade show displays for the 2015 Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim. With an estimated 60,000 in attendance over the course of the show, you have the opportunity to rub elbows with – and introduce your products and services to – influencers in the niche.
Since only hard-hitting trade show displays will do in this setting, it pays to know your setup options. The standard booth measures 200 square feet and offers visibility from all four sides. There are some options for applying for booths where one side view is obstructed. When you snag a booth located in a block, you have 600 square feet to work with and two sides of visibility. Other sizes include 100 to 400 square feet.
Must-Have Trade Show Displays for the Natural Products Expo West!
What can you do with those spatial opportunities? Choose your best displays!
The curvature of the backdrop is one of the easily recognizable trends that are hot for 2015. The larger the booth’s measurements, the more advantageous the look of a curved booth background. While there are several ready-made models currently available, it is possible to achieve a curved look for even the smallest booth with little more than four or five retractable banner stands.
The retractable banner stand is the easy-to-transport signage product that makes setup a snap. Use it in place of a curved background or rely on it to bring in attendees with bold, colorful displays. In the alternative, you might choose a monochromatic look with an accent color that plays off the colors used in your logo.
Hanging banners and trade show graphics for the 2015 Natural Products Expo West are expressly allowed. The number of hanging banners is usually limited to one, but thus far there has been no limitation mentioned for this expo. If you want to play it safe and arrive with your one hanging banner, make it count. Go for size, marketing and branding all rolled into one.
Some booths have the option of adding carpeting. Customized carpeting focuses on the colors included in your logo and displays your company’s name, logo and perhaps also images of the product that you are introducing at this expo.
Trade show displays need to stand out and entice those walking the floors – sometimes more than once – to stop by and chat with you or your staff members. At America’s Instant Signs, we understand that it can be an intimidating experience to attend a trade show for the first time. Talk to our experienced trade show display professionals for advice.
We can help you design a booth setup from scratch. If you have already put together a booth, we work with you to refurbish or update the displays. This may include the customization of throws, upgrade of banners or change of the backdrop’s fabric cover look. These changes are easy to do quickly and can effectively change the look and feel of your entire setup.
At America’s Instant Signs, we have manufactured plenty of concrete and foam monument signs. Orange County business owners appreciate the wayfinding, branding and marketing functions that these markers fulfill. In addition, concrete and foam in particular are favored for their versatility.
Why We Like Concrete and Foam Monument Signs
Both signage products are durable and impervious to longtime sunlight exposure as well as the dreaded Southern California termites. But there is more to these signs than meets the eye. For example, a concrete monument lets you select foam, acrylic or even metal lettering. In addition, lighting this type of marker is a snap. Foam comes in prefabricated shapes and sizes, which gives you plenty of flexibility to find the right look. The finish work allows you to make your monument look as though it were crafted from bricks, wood or any other type of material. In addition, the latter is usually less expensive than concrete.
Examples of Extraordinary Orange County Monument Signs
When the management team of the Sundance Community called us, they were looking for an attractive sign that would blend in with the surroundings but nevertheless identify the private community for residents and visitors. The prefabricated foam sign presents with an attractive oval that displays raised letters. This marker successfully identifies the venue and beautifully blends in with white, light blue and muted silver colors.
The management team of the Sea Air Federal Credit Union also chose to opt for a prefabricated foam monument sign. Made to look like a stucco marker with faux rocks on either side, the lettering is recessed and filled in with color. The marker looks great and helps consumers with wayfinding even as it introduces them to the logo of the banking institution.
Another housing community that chose a foam sign to identify itself is Santiago Creekside Estates. In this case, the venue’s owners decided that they wanted to also display the address number to make it easier for prospective residents and visitors to find the location. The sign itself mimics the look of a concrete marker complete with masonry caps and fake bricks. It is an attractive signage product that beautifully fits into the landscape.
Sometimes, we combine an existing concrete monument with an artistic facing. Case in point is Villa Rosa. There already was an attractive stucco and river brick monument in place. We augmented it with a back-painted acrylic panel that we then outfitted with dimensional lettering as well as a dimensional logo. This combination of looks is attractive and fits perfectly together.
Getting Started on your Order
When you are ready to add a monument sign to your property, our expert signage makers can help. We visit your location for a site survey, which helps us to discover where to place the sign for maximum exposure and visibility. Next, we measure the proposed setting and give you input on the most effective sizing. Now is also a good time to discuss the material selection, color choices and the message that you want to see displayed. Next, we handle the permitting, manufacture and finally install your monument sign.
The routed panel exterior building signs Orange County business leaders are now placing on their properties – with increasing frequency – are a mix of artwork, marketing, branding and wayfinding solution. We agree that this is an excellent option when you are in the market for a building sign that appeals to motorists as well as to pedestrians. But why do we like the routed panel option so much? What is it about this manufacturing method that greatly benefits our clients?
Design Choices are Plenty for Routed Panel Signs
Routed letters remove the actual lettering from the sign. With this look, it is the panel’s shape that primarily catches the eye while the background color now informs onlookers with the company’s name, logo and perhaps also a tag line or niche explanation. In contrast, routed panels create the shape that is visually interesting and eye-catching. The applied digital images then provide the information. Still another design choice lets you order your signage to be recessed. In this case, the letters are left to stand out while the background is routed away. The three-dimensional lettering look is quite attractive.
Metal panels are a common material selection due to their sturdy nature. But you have other material options as well. For example, two-inch outdoor-rated foam can be combined with an acrylic panel to present with an artistic look that suits a wide variety of business types. By the way, we can also replace the foam with PVC or wood.
Using a routed panel for your exterior sign opens the door to numerous looks. Lightweight panels are surprisingly versatile and can be installed directly to the monument itself with little more than pins and silicone. The heavier pieces may be installed with offsets. For those who like the one-piece construction method, there is the opportunity to have the routing done directly on the sign's face.
As you are shopping for the right exterior sign, Orange County professionals know to contact the experts at America’s Instant Signs for more information and also to discuss the options that are open to you. We first suggest a site evaluation, which allows us to get a better idea of the terrain and also of the marker’s needed size to adequately market to oncoming drivers. Next, we will take the measurements needed to determine your material needs.
Once we know the size of the sign, we also know the panel sizing. This is the time to discuss the various manufacturing methods and material choices. We offer you a variety of drafts that outline the looks of your proposed signage product. When you find the look that resembles your vision, we get to work. We ensure that the permitting process is expertly handled and quickly dealt with. Next, we manufacture the product with your color, routing preference and installation method selection in mind.
The resulting signage solution stands out on your property. It helps drivers find the entrance to your parking lot even as it assists pedestrians with wayfinding. After all, you will now be easy to find among the competition that is also nestled closely to the street. Call us today for more information on routed panel exterior building signs and other products.
Nothing generates interest and creates a buzz among shoppers like a few well-placed banners. They are suitable for all seasons and special occasions. Take for example Valentine's Day. Fast banners for Orange County retailers and service providers are easy to order when you do business with America’s Instant Signs. We specialize in the creation of visually appealing signage solutions that create brand recognition, market your specialty products and increase name awareness in the process.
This product choice is colorful and displays reds, pinks and associated Valentine’s Day colors in their most vibrant hues. Choose digital photos as backdrops or dress up the look of the display with crisp background textures. This is an ideal product selection for the company that uses popping colors as attention getters.
When you want to tone down the colors just a bit, consider a vinyl banner. Still imprinted with the information and deep discount numbers that you want to get across, it focuses more on the style elements of the display than the bright hues. Choose this banner if you want an ad display that blends into your overall store or location’s atmosphere – or when you are marketing on the exterior.
We usually recommend featuring identical banners on the interior as well as on the exterior. Of course, when you have an outdoor banner, you typically have more space to work with. Thus, we offer smaller sizes for interior displays. Choose from sizes between three feet by five feet and four feet by ten feet.
In addition to colors and sizes, we also offer customization with respect to the display options. Choose a standard setup that allows for hems and grommets. If you want something different, we gladly accommodate you with the addition of pole pockets or D-rings. Worked-in ropes are still another option.
If you have never ordered Valentine's Day fast banners for Orange County retailers or service providers before, talk to our friendly professionals for more information before starting your order. We know that it can be confusing with so many options available to you. We usually start out by asking you about the message that you want to get across. Do you need a lot of color or do you prefer to stay muted? Next, we will inquire about your display space.
When you are commissioning a banner that is aimed at drivers passing by your store, you are likely to have different needs than when you are seeking to attract shoppers from a steady stream of foot traffic that passes by your storefront. Next, we focus on the message. If you do not have anything put together yet, do not worry. We gladly help you work through the wording, the integration of pictures and decals, as well as the incorporation of your logo and other artwork.
Since we know that you want to have your banners quickly, we speedily work up the sketches for your approval. When you find one that perfectly captures your vision, we rely on our high-tech in-shop equipment to prepare your banners. While we always welcome rush jobs, we work diligently to also get out our standard orders in a minimum amount of time.
