Templates Vs. Custom Signs: What’s Right For My Business?

While most readers are bound to think custom signs are always best, that’s not necessarily the case. Granted, custom signs tend to be more memorable, and they can also contribute to your branding efforts, but stock signage has its place, too.

Don’t default to building bespoke signage from scratch—there are plenty of benefits to buying stock signs instead, including:

  • Cost control—Because they do not require any significant graphic design input, stock signs tend to be much more affordable than custom-made alternatives. This makes them ideal for small businesses, pop-ups shops, temporary displays, and private buyers on a budget.
  • Low production time—When you use “prefab” designs, we skip straight to the production phase, which means you get the finished product in-hand sooner. In many cases, same-day manufacturing may be available.
  • Universal recognition—Some signs stress function over form, comprehension over creativity. Because they’re familiar and easy to recognize, templates work well for certain types of safety signs, construction signs, and wayfinding symbols. With these signs, more “abstract” designs may be counterproductive.
  • Fast and easy customization—All of our proven sign templates are fully customizable, allowing you to instantly change fonts, color, size, and dimensions, without having to work from scratch or try to reinvent the wheel. In this way, templates can give you the best of both worlds, offering all the aforementioned perks along with branding benefits.

Stock sign templates have their place, but it’s never with your brand’s flagship signage. For storefront signs, commanding in-store displays, primary trade show signage, and any other signs you give “top billing,” customization is key, allowing your business to stand out amidst Baltimore’s crowded signscape.

If you’re looking to make a bigger impact on your audience, generate more impressions, and build some “buzz” around your business, Baltimore Signs and Graphics can help. Our custom designers work according to a simple credo: if you can dream it, we can design it! We also take customization to the nth degree, truly factoring your unique brand values, offerings, and distinct personality into every design.

But don’t take our word for it—our results speak for themselves:

Breaking the Mold with Custom Signs for Businesses in Baltimore, MD

Here’s one recent job we’re quite proud of. This eye-catching custom sign design uses a striking shape and color palette to express the owner’s values and business offerings at-a-glance. And it certainly breaks the mold—the dynamic red karateka is cut directly from the substrate material, instantly communicating what this business has to offer, and making the business tough to miss from roadside. Meanwhile, the color palette was chosen using Shirley Willet’s theory of color codification of emotions, with red representing passion and seriousness, and blue representing clarity, calm, and coolness, all of which resonate with the spirit of the martial art.
