If you’re hoping to add some pizzazz to your indoor signage, there are a number of ways to do it. Choosing to install lightboxes for retail areas of your store is certainly one of those ways. LED lightboxes are a wonderful means of visual communication as they attract attention – drawing the eye to the location where they’re hanging.
Furthermore, they can be used for just about any product or department and they show your products at their best. Listed below are a few tips for choosing the right lightboxes for your place of business.
Flexible mounting – Look for lightboxes that allow for flexible mounting. That means you can hang them on the walls, from the ceiling, or even a post of some sort. This gives you lots of options, especially when it’s time to move things around a bit.
Consider the appearance – In this age of modern and sleek, you don’t want to choose lightboxes that look too bulky or cumbersome. Look for options with thin rails that don’t interfere with the visual you’ll be displaying on the sign. You might even ask if you can “borrow” one and try it out before you make a commitment.
Ease of changing – Look for lightboxes that snap apart with ease so that you can change your graphic when you wish. This allows you to make the changes on your own or to train one or more of your employees as to the process for substituting a new visual for the old one.
Illumination – In most cases, lightboxes can be illuminated either from one side or two sides. Ask your shop fitter to help you decide which is best for your applications. Whichever you choose, make sure the signs are vividly and evenly lit so that your visual is easy to see/read. Also inquire as to the lifespan of the lighting source.
Size – In most cases, a company that produces lightboxes can craft one to your exact specifications. This allows for lots of flexibility. Ask your designer to recommend the optimal size for what you wish to accomplish. Sometimes, short and narrow is better. Other applications may require a larger, wider sign. Weight and mounting specifications are also important to discuss.
Installation – It’s helpful to contract a shop fitting company that will handle the installation of your lightboxes for retail spaces. If you’ve found a company that’s truly a one-stop-shop for all your shop fitting needs, chances are that they employee installers that will handle this. Ask before you buy.
There are so many options for lightbox usage and your designer/shop fitter can make suggestions as to where they will best serve to enhance your retail space and improve your sales. Remember, it’s all about attracting customers and keeping them, and with quality signage, you’re on the right track from the start.
