    What Are Blade Signs?

    Blade signs are types of outdoor signage typically protruding from the side of a building or storefront, and they are normally perpendicular to the wall. They are usually long and narrow, with a blade-like shape, which is where their name comes from.

    They are often used to provide directional information, advertise a business or product, or enhance the visual appeal of a storefront or building. Blade signs can be particularly effective in areas with heavy foot traffic, where they can catch the attention of passersby and help draw customers into a business.


    Types Of Blade Signs

    Your blade sign can be as conventional or as inventive as you like. Customize the size, shape, lettering, and visuals to fit your brand and message.

    Lighted Blade Signs

    A lighted blade sign is an outdoor sign that features a rectangular or square box-shaped structure, often made of metal or acrylic, with a blade-like projection extending outwards from a building or storefront.

    The sign is usually illuminated with neon, LED lights, or other lighting sources, which makes it stand out during the day and night.

    Hanging Blade Signs

    These signs are suspended from a bracket or arm attached to the building or storefront.

    Businesses can have them hanging at an angle or vertically, depending on how you’d like people to view your company. They are common in historic districts or along more traditional storefronts.
