Consider Visibility In Your Sign Design

Signs have a maximum readable distance and you need to consider this when planning.

Design Outdoor Signs With Visibility In Mind

Will most consumers be more than 10 or 25 feet away? Here is a tip we have seen work for clients: For every three inches, add a hundred feet to your design. One hundred feet being the maximum readability. For every six inches? The maximum it could be read is from will be 200 feet away. Take the letter height and multiply by 30 – it may help you figure out readability distance on your next sign project!

“Since Cushing installed our exterior acrylic signage, we have experienced better than a 15% increase in business. The Cushing team will help you figure out the right solution to reach your goals.”
Steps to Success

Outdoor Signs Make Sense

To craft the right outdoor signage for your business, the first step is a site visit. A Cushing representative takes measurements, looks for obstructions and shapes a solution to complement your business goals. We offer a suite of wide format printing solutions if you are looking beyond your building exterior.
