For business owners in Georgetown, hanging business signs offer a bold marketing strategy. Extending out from the building, they are excellent at attracting attention. However, to maximize their branding and advertising effect, hanging signs must be designed and installed correctly.
Hanging storefront signs offers two major benefits over other types of signage: they physically protrude outwards from the building which places them directly in the eye-line of passersby; also, business owners have more options to customize them, compared to conventional signage. Some of the biggest businesses in the world rely on outdoor hanging signs for their business.
Can you think of a global café chain that uses them? Why it’s Starbucks, of course!
Before we get into how outdoor hanging business signs can be used to generate leads for you, let’s see what are the different types of signs.
Types of hanging business signs
We are breaking down hanging business signs into two distinct categories: permanent and temporary. Whereas permanent signs serve the same function as storefront signs or wayfinding signs, temporary signs serve a pure marketing purpose.

- Swing signs
- Blade-type signs

Banners and hoardings are a great way to convey a sense of urgency and importance for an upcoming or ongoing event or promotion. They are a relatively inexpensive way of reaching a large audience too. Ever wondered why Georgetown is covered in banners and hoardings months before a marathon?

What to keep in mind when you are hanging your business signs
Making the most of your outdoor hanging signs means getting the basics right:
Location – The sign should be in an area which sees high foot traffic, and one with a buying intent.
Visibility – The sign should be visible from both directions. Be mindful of obstructions such as other hanging signs, lampposts, and trees.
Size – Make your hanging sign as large as it can be, within the bounds set by the city’s bylaws.
