Detroit, 1878, E.T. Barnum was a premier manufacturer of bank railings, iron fencing, roof cresting, as well as wire and ironwork. The Building Technology Heritage Library, or the BTHL, today, houses a photo of one of the oldest documented architectural signs known here in the United States. With the growth of metropolitan cities, like New York City and Las Vegas, a need for consistent branding and signage was created. Large buildings were being erected in high trafficked areas offering businesses the opportunity to distinguish themselves from their competitors. And like Barnum, many business owners found that large scale signage use was and would be beneficial, not just in their marketing efforts but in brand recognition and creative distinction. Architectural signs are in such great use now that when most people encounter them, they do not think twice about their purpose and/or their necessity.

AdGraphics’ ongoing relationship with 3M, and us being a 3M certified manufacturer, has solidified our status as innovative, and the trustworthy choice for your large printing and architectural signs in Pompano Beach, FL. AdGraphics is also qualified by the IDE Alliance and supported by the Florida Graphics Alliance.
Architectural sign uses can vary from branding to wayfinding, and from ADA compliance to customer and/or client assistance. Companies will use large signage on the exterior of buildings to distinguish their business locations, as well as to maintain public brand awareness within their area. Signs should be consistent in letter and graphic size, in their color scheme, and in the dimensions used. Outdoor sign use is an immediate and more permanent form of advertising, proving to be very cost-effective over time.

Things to Consider
Any business in need of architectural signage should consider a few things before designing their signs and choosing a company to manufacture their product.
- Overall Size: How much space do we have and what is the best way to utilize it?
- Brand Message: What is our intent or use for this sign?
- Font Size, Color, and Type: Is our script readable and on-trend with our current marketing and brand?
- Cost: What is our budget, and how can we maximize what we can spend, considering the three things above?
