Building signs are any type of sign that a business uses to display the company name or logo on the building. Whether the sign is comprised of dimensional letters, a sandblasted sign face, a vinyl sign face, a lightbox, or a set of channel letters they all work to serve a common purpose – to showcase or identify the business to their existing and potential clients.

Awnings, sometimes referred to as canopies, are a great way to gain exposure for your business. Commercial Awnings provide a professional appearance while simultaneously promoting your business. If you have an existing awning for your business, Signarama in Newnan can help you recover or repair your awning and make it look new.
An awning is an architectural projection that provides weather protection, identity or decoration, and they are typically supported by the building on which they are attached. An awning is comprised of a lightweight, rigid skeletal structure over which a fabric cover is fastened to shelter windows, doors, decks, and walkways.
Awnings are used by various types of businesses. You will see large chain stores, banks, and other franchise companies incorporate commercial awnings as part of their branding in addition to local businesses. Sometimes Signarama customers will choose an awning so that their store blends in with the surrounding buildings. Properly designed, awnings can provide a vintage look to a store front.
Another benefit of commercial awnings provided by Signarama is the entire awning does not count toward the square footage for some municipalities sign regulations, only the part of the awning that has graphics on it will be counted toward your sign allotment. With the increased amount of attention that awnings draw, you will be able to enjoy a large return on your investment.
Typical commercial awning projects can be completed in 3 – 4 weeks. If you want Signarama to install your new awning, you will need a permit prior to installation. Our Signarama store can provide this as part of our comprehensive service or assist you in the application process.
Awnings are made with two basic materials, vinyl or canvas. Typically vinyl awnings are chosen for lighted awnings, they are easier to clean and when lit allow more of the light to shine through. Some of our customers choose cloth for a more traditional look for their awning project. Awnings can last for 5-10 years, depending on how they are maintained and can be “re-skinned”, or recovered, to extend their lifespan even further.
Awnings come in many shapes and sizes, have one of our sign professionals come out to your location and provide you with input on what style of awning will look best for your needs.
Interior Directories and Wayfinding Signage
Well-executed interior directories and wayfinding, or directional, signs can add to your decor and make it easy for clients, visitors, and vendors, and even employees, to find locations throughout your building or complex. Signarama understands the importance of such signs and can make them fit in seamlessly within your building’s environment and your budget.
Custom directional S signs are primarily used in office buildings, hospitals, universities, entertainment complexes, government buildings, and parking garages, to name a few. Directional signs used inside buildings have no permitting issues to deal with although they are affected by the signage guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities ACT (ADA) and some local or state laws.
Signarama recommends using high-grade materials to produce your directional sign products. We often use, HDU, aluminum, and acrylic substrates to manufacture long lasting signs that perform with minimal maintenance. We letter and decorate your custom directional signs using a variety of methods such as sandblasting, routing, engraving, and/or the application of vinyl letters. We also can provide easily changeable modular component systems and paper insert formats. This allows us to create new signs with a theme that’s consistent with your existing identification and promotional signs.
