3D Signs Stand Out

Let’s face it—we live in a 3D world. Yet some business signs seem to be doomed to the flat life of two dimensions. It doesn’t have to be this way.  Not when dimensional signs are available. Taking your sign designs into the same 3D dimension we all inhabit can come with some perks.


Why do companies put up signs in the first place? They want people to see them, of course. Incorporating a dimensional sign adds visual interest, but it also does something much simpler, something much more important—it increases visibility.  People are more likely to notice unique signs, colors and shapes.  Adding a third dimension to a sign adds a visual element flat signs simply can’t compete with.

Dimensional signs have depth.  And that increases both visibility from more angles and the chances of getting noticed.

Timber Dental’s lobby sign has three tiers that help this new family dental practice stand out.  The toothbrush and company name stand off the wall with spacers to give even greater depth and interesting shadows.  The tag line is even done in raised letters that are attached directly to the wall.  The result is a sign that really pops.

Special Effects

One of the best things about dimensional signs is that they can actually create their own special effects.  For instance, a sign can be layered or staggered to create different visuals from different angles.  And lighting from either the front or back can create unique looks.  Shadows created by dimensional signs generate striking effects that just can’t be replicated with flat signs.

Specialty Graphic Solutions 3D building sign

The Specialty Graphic Solutions awning sign has four different depth elements.  It uses the depth between the wall and the frosted acrylic to let diffused light shine through from behind the 1/4″ thick acrylic panel.  Then there are raised, painted letters on that acrylic.  The raised logo gives additional depth and style.  A flat sign could show the same basic information and colors, but it just wouldn’t have the same interesting feel and depth of this display.

First Impressions

Let’s face it.  When it comes to advertising, the first impression is the one that really matters.  We’re visual creatures, so make that first impression count with something that really sticks in your customers’ minds and establishes a positive perception of your business.  Dimensional signs show that a business cares about quality and professionalism.

While any professionally made-sign can greatly increase awareness and business, dimensional signs are especially well-suited to make a positive and lasting first impression.   Just remember – when your sign stands out so do you.  Do you need to spruce up that first impression?  Are you ready to step into a new dimension?  Try going 3D!  It’s as easy as contacting us for a Free Quote.
