Custom Business Sign Solutions: Find What’s Right For You In Bakersfield, CA

With our sign experts by your side, creating custom business signs is easy. But before you begin your order, you’ll need to decide what type of sign is right for your business. And that’s a very personal question.

Because no two businesses have the exact same location, marketing goals, or sign budgets, there is no single “best” option out there for everyone. But there is a best-for-you, and we can help you find it!

Read on to learn which products might suit your goals, or call (661)-379-6545 to get personalized recommendations from our custom business sign specialists in Bakersfield, CA.

Best Custom Business Signs For Owners On A Limited Budget

When cost-control is a priority, we often recommend eco-friendly vinyl graphics, which convert blank walls, floor spaces, and windowed frontage into canvases for your brand messaging. Not only are they less expensive than any other signage of similar size, but you also won’t have to pay permitting fees.

And low-cost does not mean low-quality! Here’s a recent window graphic order we completed for Cali Dental, transforming 5 large window panes into promotional assets. In this case, we used a material that completely covers the windows, while still allowing some light to pass through and illuminate their lobby.

Best Custom Business Signs For Owners Facing High Competition

If you need to stand out from the competition, illuminated dimensional lettering, also known as channel letter signs, should top your list of custom business sign options.

Why? Because channel lettering is:

  • Mounted up high, where it cannot be obstructed by passing cars or pedestrians
  • Internally illuminated, helping your message outshine the competition by day and improving nighttime legibility by 40-60%, according to the Interdisciplinary Journal of Signage and Wayfinding (Bullough, 2017).
  • Big and bold, with proper architectural integration effectively converting your entire building into one big sign substrate on which your supersized brand name is displayed
  • Three-dimensional, casting shadows between letters for better contrast and creating visual interest, as though your brand name were leaping off the substrate

It’s no coincidence that some of the biggest chain restaurants and franchises in America use channel letters to stand out in congested commercial areas, malls, and plazas. Take this recent project we completed for Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen for example:

If stud-mounting is too much, we also offer minimally-invasive raceway and backer installation options.

Best Custom Business Signs For Owners With Small Retail Spaces

Small retail spaces pose unique challenges for business owners looking to leverage the promotional power of indoor signage. On the one hand, you’ll need a variety of indoor signs to optimize wayfinding, drive impulse buys, and enhance the customer experience; but too many signs actually works against these goals, creating clutter that restricts movement and makes your retail space seem unwelcoming.

If you want to bring your business all of the benefits of indoor signage without any of the clutter, we typically recommend:

  • Vinyl graphics, which take up no space at all and can be installed on a variety of in-store surfaces, even aisles and checkout counters
  • Banners, which can serve double duty as tablecloths or runners, or be mounted out of the way on the wall or ceiling
  • Hanging signage, which is installed overhead to minimize clutter and maximize visibility
  • Changeable signage, like A-frames and simple message boards, which allow you to display a practically unlimited number of sign messages using changeable, dry-erase board, or chalkboard-style sign faces, yet only takes up one sign’s worth of space

I had a great experience with the service I received from Michael, Trinh and TM signs and graphics. Their service was fast, high quality, and the price was affordable. I had informed TM signs and graphics that I needed the project done within a few days, so I was very impressed when it took them less than a weekend to get it done, and I was even more impressed when we spoke about the cost of the project (hint. hint. It was less than other quotes). I 100% recommend giving TM signs a try. I'm very pleased with the services they offer, and I will continue to use them in the future.

Hats off to Trinh and her team. We needed new signage on quite a few of our office doors. Other companies we checked in with were not able to come out until the following week of our request, Trinh showed up within an hour to measure for what we needed. The work was performed within a few days perfectly! We would highly recommend giving this company an opportunity to earn your business. They did ours this time and future times to come.

When the best man at my wedding was unable to make it last minute, Bakersfield Signs and Graphics came to the rescue. They custom made a cardboard cutout of the best man. It was a huge hit at my wedding and everyone loved it! They made it so fast and it looked exactly like the other groomsmen. I couldn't believe how well it turned out. Thank you so much for bringing some much needed laughs and fun during times like these.

BSG did a fantastic job re-designing the Yard Sign logo for ICO Gardening. The original picture was old and couldn't be used due to low resolution. They had to create a new one to the exact picture. They were quick and efficient in competing my order.
