What Are Blade Signs?
Blade signs are usually hanging signs that are attached to the facade of a building. These signs work better in narrow streets, shopping malls, and small-format stores. Blade signs are traditionally double-sided and can be seen from many angles at eye level. Blade Signs are manufactured with mounting hardware, which can be a decorative bracket, frame, or a simple iron rod.
We offer aluminum, wood, and metal blade signs. Blade signs can also be illuminated, but then they must be built with a cabinet to hold in the lighting elements. They are manufactured by using a ⅛” thick aluminum sheet that is welded on all the sides to create a box.
Vinyl prints are then added to the faces of the cabinet to finish the sign. Acrylic or metal letters are often placed on the faces of a sign to add a 3-dimensional effect to the sign. Our most popular blade signs are made with luster board-weatherproof plywood sandwiched in between two metal faces for extra outdoor durability.
Types Of Blade Signs
Traditionally, blade signs have been designed rectangular and flat, hanging from chains on a poll or extension above a store. These signs have been used for hundreds of years in some capacity, as they are one of the best store signs that a company can have to attract people to its business. Signs NYC, however, leads the way with blade signs. We have technology and experience capable of creating blade signs in many different styles. These include:
Illuminated Blade Signs
These are blade signs that have lighting elements within the sign. As mentioned, illuminated blade signs are made using a cabinet, so they will usually be thicker than other hanging signs and can be illuminated using LED’s or neon.
Hand Painted Blade Signs
Hand-painted blade signs can add a touch of personalization to your storefront. Hand painted signs offer amazing detail, texture, and color. Our enamel paint is also extremely tough to remove, so the vibrant colors will remain for years.
Stationary Blade Signs
Stationary blade signs don’t swing, and are instead mounted using a fixed bracket that keeps the sign in place. Stationary blade signs offer the most customization options out of them all.
Swinging Blade Signs
A Swinging blade sign is mounted perpendicular to the building's front, giving a waving effect and making it more visible and eye-catching to the pedestrians.
