What Are Blade Signs?

Blade signs are a term that takes after the way they look like a blade as they project over a walkway, blade signs are mounted or hung from the side of a building. They are perpendicular to the building’s face, making them visible to traffic in both directions. 

Blade signs have been in use for hundreds of years and are one of the most popular signs to draw pedestrian attention to a storefront. While they are historically flat and rectangular, they can also be made in many different styles. Types of blade signs we offer include:

All of our blade signs are designed with your specific requirements in mind, and can be customized for size, depth, and more.

High Visibility

Blade signs protrude perpendicularly from the building, making them visible from multiple angles and to pedestrians walking in either direction. This increases the chances of catching the attention of passersby and drawing them into the business.

These signs are ideal for businesses with limited frontage space. They don’t require a large area on the building’s facade, making them a practical choice for narrow streets or crowded urban areas.
