Blade Signs: The Perfect Solution for Businesses in NYC and the Tri-State Area

At Signs NYC, we specialize in custom, handcrafted blade signs that are sure to make your business pop.

Blade signs, also known as swinging signs or projecting signs, are a vital signage solution for businesses in the bustling streets of New York City and the broader Tri-State area, encompassing all five boroughs and the entirety of New Jersey. Their unique design, projecting perpendicularly from buildings, ensures high visibility in densely populated areas. These signs are especially effective in capturing the attention of passersby from various angles, making them perfect for the crowded urban environments of NYC and neighboring regions.

In addition to their exceptional visibility, blade signs offer remarkable customization options in terms of shape, size, and style, allowing businesses to seamlessly integrate their brand identity into the sign’s design. Whether seeking a vintage aesthetic for a charming boutique in Brooklyn or a sleek, modern look for a tech firm in Manhattan, blade signs can be tailored to complement any brand personality. Additionally, illuminated blade signs provide 24/7 visibility, ensuring that your brand message shines brightly throughout the Tri-State area.
