Cost of sign printing
If you are working on a tight sales and marketing budget, the use of sign printing can be a much more affordable option of making your products, services and brand known. A common measure of the effect of advertising is the cost-per-thousand, and when signage is compared to other forms of advertising, the former’s cost is far lower.
The other factor to consider is the life span of the sign. Is this sign a permanent fixture of your building, like a fascia sign? Or is this sign going to be used for a seasonal promo offer? Is it going to be applied to a shop window, thus requiring more of a removable sticker? Is it going to be just a whole digital sign printing or is it going to be combined with 3D lettering? Or, is it going to be supply only or does your sign needs to be professionally installed?
All those factors will determine the final costing. Compared to other forms of advertising, sign printing has a lower cost per impression.
Remember that you get what you pay for
While cost is an important aspect to consider when investing in sign printing, keep in mind that very cheap quotes can contain some very unpleasant surprises like poor quality of material used.
Ever noticed that some signs seem to disintegrate quite easily, there’s quite a bit of lifting occurring, there’s a lack of sharpness with the colour hues and there’s some noticeable fading though the signs have only been installed recently. This occurs due to the poor quality of material being used, the lack of protective laminate and the lack of experience when it comes to application techniques.
It is almost impossible for businesses to get noticed without having a sign to spark the interest of the public. The old adage” A business with no sign is sign of no business” is as true today as it has ever been.
