Do you know sign language? Please stop giving your computer screen the peace sign. We can’t see it, and we’re not talking about American Sign Language. We’re talking about the language we use in the signage industry. Did you know that we have a whole page devoted to sign language terms in Vancouver, WA? It’s true. Today’s blog will entice you to check it out. We double-dog dare you to peruse it!
Why Should You Learn about Signage Terms?
If you’re like us, you don’t like wasting your time learning about things that aren’t relevant to your life or your interests. There’s just too much fun stuff to see, do, and learn. However, if you’re interested in buying effective signage for your business, spending the five to ten minutes learning the language of signs can ensure that you end up with markers that you want.
How will learning sign language help you? Let’s say you went to France and didn’t know any French. The French are used to these situations and will work with you to make sure you have a pleasant experience, but you won’t get the most out of your experience. You won’t know how to express yourself precisely or to know exactly what others are saying. The same holds true in the signage industry. Our mighty sign makers are happy to work with people of any level of knowledge, but you’ll have a better understanding of what’s going on if you know the lingo.
If this doesn’t have you convinced, how about we give you some FREE MONEY? If you go and read our commercial sign glossary right now, you’ll find discount codes hidden among the definitions. Okay, so maybe discounts aren’t exactly free money, but they can save you hundreds of dollars.
What Can You Learn from the Glossary?
Our list of signage terms is packed full of useful information. For instance, you may have gotten a quote from us referencing “cast vinyl” or “calendered vinyl.” What do those terms even mean? Our glossary will let you know that cast vinyl is a premium vinyl for complex surfaces that need a longer life, such as boat graphics or vehicle wraps. Calendered vinyl is an intermediate film used for short-term projects.
We often reference “stand off mounts” in our blogs. This is especially true when we’re talking about lobby signs with a dimensional appearance. But, what are they? A little look at the glossary lets you know that stand off mounts are sign mounting hardware with two or more pieces that allow the marker to be stood off a wall.
What about “truss displays”? You sometimes mention these when discussing your trade show display options. Our handy sign language definitions will let you know that truss displays are sturdy exhibits made of extruded aluminum hardware. They are a heavy duty, attention-grabbing, and smart solution for serious exhibitors.
