3 Ways To Spruce Up An Old Sign


If you have an old storefront sign that still has a good structure, but doesn't look exactly how you want it to, you can spruce up your old sign with some retrofitting techniques. You can clean your sign, repaint it and retrofit it with new lights.

#1 Clean Your Sign

The first thing that you can do to spruce up your old sign is to give it a good cleaning. It can be easy to neglect cleaning your sign, especially if your sign is mounted on the top of your building. 

To clean your sign, you may want to hire a professional cleaning company to come out and clean your sign. If that is not an expense, you want to pay for, purchase a scrub brush with an extendable handle and use that to clean your sign. You may need to get up on a ladder to effectively clean your sign. Use a hose with a spray attachment or a pressure washer to rinse off and clean your sign as well. Giving your sign a good cleaning can give it back some of its old luster.

#2 Repaint Your Sign

Over time, the colors on your sign will start to fade. Paint can last a long time, but it is not designed to last forever. You can have your sign professional repainted. A professional will ensure that the paint is applied to each letter and design on your sign. A professional painter will make sure that your sign looks new when it is repainted. 

When you have your sign repainted, you don't have to stick to the same colors that were on your sign before. You can choose more modern colors that represent your business. Make sure that the colors you choose fit with your marketing materials and vision for your business. 

#3 Retrofit Your Sign With New Lights

Third, you can retrofit your sign with new lights. The old lights on your sign can be removed from your sign by a professional sign company. When you have your sign retrofitted with new lights, you may want to install LED lights on your sign. LED lights have a great glow to them, and will illuminate your sign so that it can be seen from far away. Additionally, LED lights are energy efficient, so you will spend less money keeping your sign on than you did with the old light system. This will reduce your energy costs and even allow you to keep your sign on all night if energy costs have prevented you from keeping your sign on all night. Keeping your sign on all night will draw positive attention to your business.

Learning About How Signs Are Made

Hello, my name is Margorie Hansen. Welcome to my website about the sign creation process. When I opened my first company, I relied on word of mouth advertising to bring in new and repeat customers. Over time, I started to understand the value of having signs created for my company. Once I learned how the signs were made, however, I developed a true passion for this craft. I created this site to share my passion for sign making with you all. I hope to inspire others to learn all they can about how modern signs are created. Thank you for coming by.
