Your business’ signage is the most important part of your advertising. Hanging signs are a great way to get clients to notice you and for you to express your style – before they even walk in the door. When choosing your sign brackets, you need to consider how far you are from the road or sidewalk and how well you’d like your sign to be seen. This will help you determine the right size sign blank for your business message and in turn, the best bracket for the job. It’s not always easy choosing a sign support, but we aim to make your decision an easy one with this sign bracket buying guide.
What size sign do I need?
This is a common question when purchasing these signs and brackets. While you should consider the visibility, the sign or sign bracket sizes you need is dependent on your own personal tastes or style of business. Size could also be influenced by local ordinance or ADA compliance regulations so check these before you make larger purchases.
There are several designs to choose from, but some sign brackets sizes and styles that are more compatible with certain signs than others. For example, oval signs might pair well with a Milano Arch, while rectangular signs will look more appropriate on a Classic Hanging Sign Bracket. Please browse this sign bracket buying guide, arranged by the kind of blank you’ll use, for help with your sign purchasing needs.
These signs are round and match well with brackets that are not as angular and spartan. For example, an oval sign blank looks nice with the Milano Arch Hanging Sign Blade Bracket. Hand wrought and rust resistant, this aluminum sign bracket is stocked standard at 30″ to 50″ and its delicate curvature complements oval silhouettes. With the easy to install wall mount plate on the back, this powder coated sign bracket is a great solution for your business signage needs.
Square signs are special because all of the sides are the same exact length; this makes it pair well with the Triangle Ball Hanging Blade Sign Bracket. These angular brackets come standard at 30″ (to 50″). The arm is a steel tube and is capped with a decorative ball finial at the end while an accent piece completes the triangle at the sturdy 3″ x 12″ backplate. Pair this with a square sign blank for a contemporary, geometric look.
Rectangular signs are sort of an industry standard – they are one of the most popular sign shape choices on the market. Since a rectangle is a bit more of a forgiving shape, you might choose to hang it on a Classic Hanging Sign Bracket with a Ball Finial for added class. Standard stock is 30″ to 50″ lengths; The decorative scroll work at the top is professional and fancy, adding a bit of whimsy.
