Vertical Signs for Storefront Businesses


Vertical signs are just what they sound like: vertically-shaped signs with the text flowing downward, attached to the outside of a storefront business. You have likely seen these signs around downtown areas, as they were commonly used in past eras. Today, vertical signs have a vintage appeal, but can still be as modern as you would like, using design choices like font and color to create whatever aesthetic matches your store.

The Benefits of Vertical Signs

Vertical signs offer many benefits for your storefront business. They stick out in a sea of other signs that are mounted horizontally, immediately capturing the attention of anyone passing by.

With many customization options from color, borders, fonts, logos, and size, your vertical sign can be made as a perfect fit for your business.

Another benefit of vertical signs is that they are easy to light up with LEDs, adding even more flair to your storefront business and attracting more attention.

Vertical signs can be made with high-quality materials similar to what you would find in a horizontally mounted sign, so they offer more durability and weather resistance than fabric flags that some businesses use vertically. These signs are far more permanent, and will keep looking good through the years.

The Importance of Signs

Every storefront business should have well-made signage. Eye-catching signs can lead customers into a business they’ve never considered, just based on what they see outside. A sign reflects the nature and atmosphere of your storefront business, creating a first impression that lasts. If you do not have a sign, people won’t know what you are all about, and will pass by your store completely.

Use your signage as advertising for your business that stays up 24/7, working for you even when your business is not open. It’s a great opportunity to drive up business and show your greater community what you are all about.
