“I’ve done several EPS foam monuments like these,” says Mark. “They’re easy to do and they look great. I get them from Custom Foam Fabricators. They have quite a few standard models, and you can customize them, too. They did the faux stone base on the Flex-Chem sign...”
“Hope Church already had a brick base, so I mounted the sign on that.”

Pare it down: Around here—and probably most everywhere—customers are bad about wanting to say too much on their signs and vehicles. They don’t edit their copy down to the most important message. I always try to get customers to eliminate the copy that isn’t necessary.

Any such copy that you add to a sign is done at the expense of your primary message. Pare it down. Don’t be repetitive. Eliminate secondary messages. Make it clean, simple and to the point. Right away their sign gets stronger than the other ones around it.

Effective sign design is about the best advertising going for small businesses. Most businesses don’t take advantage of that. That’s what I like to do for them—help them create a quality brand that will set their business apart from the crowd. Signs can create a powerful first impression for a small business, and you want to make sure it’s a positive one.
