Local faith communities connect with members of the community via bulletin boards they attach to their buildings’ facades. But when you want to address motorists or offer wayfinding assistance, you need different types of markers. What are the three must-have exterior signs for churches in Alpharetta, GA?
When your faith community uses a larger campus for offices, the sanctuary, a variety of classrooms, meeting rooms, and banquet facilities, it makes sense to direct traffic before it jams. The typical post and panel sign features two aluminum or vinyl posts and a board of the same material in between them. Present your church’s name and logo at the top; spell out directions underneath and emphasize them with arrows.
A changeable reader board is an ideal addition to your façade, monument, post and panel setup, or as a stand-alone fixture on your property. It presents as a cabinet with multiple tracks – usually three to five – that hold rigid or flexible sign letters. They spell out messages that announce special events, guest speakers, and seminars. You would use these signage solutions for messages that might change every week or even more frequently than that.
For a more permanent solution, we recommend the investment in a changeable word bar system. It mimics the good looks of a post and panel sign. Rather than having a permanently imprinted facing, this sign offers multiple bars you can switch out as needed. These messages should be more long-term or pertain to special events. For example, if you host wedding receptions on your property, you might have two removable word bars that point to the overflow parking and the wedding banquet facility.
Nothing catches the eye like LED signage. This product takes the idea of the manual reader board and adds a high-tech touch. When you incorporate it with a monument display on a busy street, your presentation of the church’s name, basic information, and customized message, which you can change at any time from the office, creates a fantastic eye-catching look you can change multiple times a day if needed.
Although these LED reader boards come in a broad range of sizes, our clients have had excellent success when thinking big. The larger the screen you present to passersby and motorists, the more likely they are to notice your message. By the way, if you choose a product that is animation and graphics capable, a large screen is always a better option. For text-only displays, you do not necessarily have to maximize the size.
The professionals at Apex Signs & Graphics routinely work with members of the local faith communities to create the types of signs that catch the eye, communicate upcoming events, and increase foot traffic at fundraisers and outreach events.
