Size

The size of your projecting sign is a crucial factor to consider. A sign that’s too small may not be easily visible, while a sign that’s too large may violate local regulations. It’s important to measure the space where the sign will be installed and choose a suitable size accordingly.

Visibility

Projecting signs should be designed to maximise visibility. This can be achieved through the use of bold colours, large fonts, and high-contrast designs. Additionally, considerations should be given to installing lighting for the sign to ensure it is visible at night.
