Most Common Types of Signage

Seeing your business name or logo big and bold on a sign is a beautiful thing. It can be a little intoxicating, too, and you may wind up falling in love with an idea because you like it and not because it’s going to be the most effective it can be for your business. While there surely is a balance there (it is your business, after all), it’s important to know about the different types of signage in McClain County, OK to have a plan before you start the process of getting signage made.

Some basic parameters to consider first are location (indoor or outdoor), local regulations (placement, lights, etc.) and budget. It’s also important to consider whether you are looking for persuasive signage to promote your business or a specific product or service or for informational signage like a menu board, directory or wayfinder.

Here are some descriptions of different types of business signs in McClain County, OK.

A-frame signs

A-frame signs can be a versatile way to advertise your business. They can also be useful as informative signs. This type of signage is portable, lightweight and durable enough to handle both indoor and outdoor use. A-frames are a great way to catch the attention of passersby in a public space. These are often allowed to be placed on the sidewalk or other areas in front of or around your business. The printed part of the sign can often be swapped out within the A-frame itself at a low cost.

Window graphics

If you’ve got a window in your business space, you can use it to advertise your business. Window graphics are an incredibly customizable type of signage that clings to a window and can be installed and removed with ease. This type of signage is printed onto vinyl or perforated vinyl and can be made in any size and shape imaginable. This is great for advertising limited-time offers or new products—or just to give your business a larger visual representation to the outside world.

Vehicle graphics

Another great way to get the word out about your business is with vehicle graphics. This can be similar to window graphics with a design and text printed on vinyl, or it can be a laminated wrapping material designed to envelop the entire vehicle. It can also be as simple as a magnetic decal that you affix to the door of your vehicle. No matter the style you choose, vehicle graphics are a great way to advertise your business as you drive around town.


One of the most popular types of signage of all time is the banner. With low cost, high visibility and incredible versatility, it’s no wonder that banners are the go-to for many business owners. These can be used inside or outside, and you may be able to get even heavier duty printing and material for banners being used outdoors for long periods of time.
