Types of Lighting – Halo Lite

You will not get a second chance to make that right first impression. And this old adage is not just true when meeting someone face-to-face, but it’s also true when it comes to your business signage.

Why? Well your company/venue/business sign is your best chance to grab a potential customer’s attention. It needs to deliver a powerful first impression of your business.

When was the last time you reviewed the front of your building, and how it should be attracting footfall. An outdated or unimpressive signage (damaged, weather worn), will cause people to just pass on by if you are lucky!
Worse is if they do notice you, and think “Im not going in there….” as they’ll be so more likely to stop into your competitor’s location because that have that first impression.

So as Autumn terms to Winter with early dark nights what is the best option to look at – Halo Lit.

Or also known as reverse channel lit signage, the overall effect of halo lit signage is a glowing, halo-like illumination in the shape of the sign. This is achieved because the aluminium faces and signs are mounted onto small standoffs away from the wall. These project the internal lighting onto the wall, creating an incredibly eye-catching and customer grabbing effect.

Halo lit signs are typically very light, made from materials such as aluminium, acrylic or plastic.

The interior lights are generally LEDs, which look beautiful and provide energy-efficient cost-savings over other types of lighting. The LEDs (and therefore the halo colour) is typically white, but other colours are available, depending on your branding needs.

You can also have different coloured aluminium; for example, their sign may feature writing in black with a star in yellow. Even if the halo lighting is all in white, it sets off the multi-coloured signage beautifully.

How Is Halo Lit Signage Installed?
Because the overall effect of halo lit signage depends on consistent projection onto a background surface, the installation works best on a flat wall. Corrugated and uneven surfaces pose a real challenge and sometimes will not achieve the desired effect.

When and Where Is Halo Lit Signage Typically Used?
Because the lighting effects are so dramatic, this style of signage works particularly well to draw attention to a business that is open after dark.
So your Restaurants, hotels, bars, and many retail stores use halo lit signage to give a sleek glow to their name or logo.

Even if your business closes its doors before the sun sets, halo lit signage is a great way to advertise your venue.

Sign Trays – Getting it right!

You see so many venues and shops in Wales opening up with an appearance that is, well, not conducive to grab that footfall.
Yes, when you are starting a business in Swansea or Neath or Cardiff, and every spent penny is profit lost – but also understanding how not spend money is just as important.

What we mean by this, is be careful when considering how to dress your shop front and windows wherever in South Wales you are.
You might think it is cheap and good value, but your potential customers will see cheap and not even stop to take a peak.

Customers have very high expectations and to drag them into a store and away from Internet shopping will take effort.

That first appearance is VITAL to get customers through the door and your shop signage and signs make that happen.

When you throw up a vinyl banner or bolt a bit of printed corex to your shop, what does that tell potential customers?
It tells them, you wont be there long, you don’t care about how you look and subsequently don’t care about your product.

It can cost just as much to do something badly as it can correctly!

Seek advice from your local welsh sign company on what works for your industry, the area you are in and tell them your budget.
Managing expectations is half the battle, and knowing that you have an experienced shoulder to seek advice on can help you tailor that budget.

Glam Signs Ltd, produce a wide range of budget friendly signs and shop signage. From your standard sign tray with applied vinyl, to your lite sign tray with opal inlay and even more luxury lite LED signs made from Acrylic and Opal. We understand how to make you stand out with quality yet not pay the silly prices that big sign makers are trying to charge.

Taking your brand and applying it to the front of a shop, does not have to cost the earth. With guidance and help, you can always have a great looking sign that will lure in customers at a cost that won’t break the bank.
