Trending Styles in Industrial Signs

Warehouses, production facilities, manufacturing buildings, and other industrial establishments require signage just as much as a retail shopping center, university, or office building. Their signs are there to be informative and helpful for both visitors and employees, along with projecting brand and providing a positive interaction just like other industries’ signs.

We’ve discussed the trending styles of monument signs in a previous blog, how digital message boards are becoming popular along with adding a bit of architecture. We’ve also touched on trending styles of pylon signs and how dual pillars and illuminated letters are what’s attracting motorists these days. Now we’re taking a look at the industrial signs we’ve worked with and the trends we’ve noticed that create an effective workplace and impressive branding.

Cabinet Signs

Cabinet signs, also known as “box” or “wall” signs have provided a powerful way to draw notice to brand and location. They are typically a form of illuminated signage, but can also be unlit if desired. They provide a popping-out visual effect for your lettering and for your brand. When illuminated, cabinet signs are able to highlight bright colors and project throughout the night. If there are late night deliveries or if the building needs to have an eye-popping aspect to grab the attention of those looking for it but unfamiliar with the area, a cabinet sign is a great choice for an industrial sign.

Bold Block Style Font

When seeing a blocky typeface, an initial thought that comes to mind is how commanding and emphasized the lettering looks. Especially when paired with capital lettering. We get bold and legible text. With bold block lettering, your sign has defined characters that allows a quick glance to know what building it is while still carrying your brand. This lettering can be found on the building itself, or on a monument sign as well. The possibilities to incorporate bold block style font on your industrial signs are endless and we’re ready to find what would work best for your company.

Stone Monument Signs

Stone monument signs have been a huge trending style for industrial signs. They are firm and robust signs, but they also present a clean sharpness when cut from a stone slab. This type of signage represents the industrial and commercial industry and would give the bold block style font mentioned above a visually pleasing backdrop as well. There is something dignified and durable about a stone monument sign. They are effective and sturdy, making for the perfect signage outside of a warehouse or manufacturing facility.
