5 Useful Tips to Help Create Effective Signage

The following graphic design principles can help create attractive, high impact signage that is readable, appealing to the eye and carry the most impact!

Keep it visible and legible: Less really is more. By keeping your message short, a sign is easier to see and read at a glance. Signs come in every shape and size, to help your prospects notice the sign and display make sure you have chosen the appropriate distance. It is also important to consider the location and what obstacles may be in the way. Visibility is the most important part of your signage.

Avoid clutter:  Successful signage communicates a message concisely. To help get the message across to your target audience it is conveyed in as few words as possible. Crowding your sign with too many words or lines of text makes it harder to read from a distance.

Type and fonts:  In general, to achieve maximum legibility use clean, crisp, easy-to-read typestyles for maximum legibility. Most professional fonts have varying weights, ranging from regular to bold, black, extended, etc. Use these to your advantage by giving priority or preference to certain parts of your message.

Images and graphics: Adding a border can increase reading speed by up to 25 percent. They tend to cause the eye to focus on the message. In addition, to create a design with the greater impact you can utilize full-color digital photos to get the message across. Logos, artwork and other graphical elements help visually enhance the design and layout.

Foreground/background colors:  When choosing a background for your design, don’t use anything that will make it difficult to focus on the main message. Black contrasts well with any light color, and white works well with colors having a dark value. The greater the contrast, the more legible text is from a distance.

Following the guidelines above will ensure that your sign is readable and your message gets across clearly to its intended audience. As always, Creative Composition is here to help design, print and market your materials to create a sign to get you noticed.

Custom Postcards That Benefit Your Business!


How They Can Benefit Your Business!

Custom Postcards are an effective way to reach audiences you normally wouldn’t be able to get to. They’re popular with businesses of all sizes for their excellent return on investment. Postcards offer high conversion rates, even when taking into account their initial costs relative to email and other types of marketing. With that, direct mail is far more effective than their digital and mass marketing counterparts at generating response rates and conversions.

The Bottom Line – Direct mail has the greatest impact because it offers a tangible experience for the customer. Oversized pieces stand out the most.

However, you won’t find the postcards you need off the rack from a store. Generic postcards won’t be able to speak for your business in a meaningful way since they’re made for everyone. For effective postcards promotions that match your business needs, you’ll need to go custom. Here at Creative, we have the tools and offer the best techniques to help you create a custom postcard to get you started.

Design Tips

Know your audience: We can help you design with your audience in mind. You should first know who they are. Identify which group of people you will be targeting. From there, we can help you tailor your custom postcards according to what the group needs.

Font Style: Font size and style are significant when it comes to designing your postcards. We can help you choose a legible font size and style; the text is as important as the image on the card.

Type of content: Since postcards provide very little space for design elements and text, make your message short and direct. Use simple phrases or sentences that are straight to the point and that can capture your audience’s attention.

Use impactful Images: The use of images, patterns, and logo placement on your postcard helps create a stronger impact on your postcard. Our design team can help you set up the perfect postcard to tailor the card to your specific needs.

Choose relevant details: Use images that are relevant to your message. Avoid making use of unnecessary images.
