5 Creative Business Sign Ideas

Do you want to attract more foot traffic to your business? If your business has a rustic or nautical vibe, wooden signs help attract customers. Use these 5 creative business sign ideas.


If you run a business, then you most definitely need a sign to decorate your storefront, entrance, or other areas that depict your business, and maybe even location. But, coming up with business sign ideas can be difficult at first. You'll need to decide on the lettering and, of course, you'll need to determine what will actually be on the sign such as your business name and telephone number.

Depending on the size of your business may also depend on what type of sign you choose. There are always DIY signs for a business, or you could have something made. Whatever option you choose, you'll need to be sure the sign is large enough for people to read and ensure that it's in a location that's easily visible.

If you need help figuring out a new sign for your business, look no further because you're here, and we can help.

Business Sign Ideas to Entice Customers

Your business signage is most likely the first thing your customers will notice about your business so it's important to have something that is not only professional but also eye-catching. A sign, whether for a business or not, should be crafty (in most cases) so that potential customers have something to relate to before they walk in your door.

Here are some sign ideas to get you started with your decision:

1. Wood Pallet Signs

Wood pallet signs are classic and work well for businesses with a rustic vibe. You can easily nail together a few wood pallets and paint your message across the front.

2. Chalkboard Signs

Chalkboard signs are fun because you can change up the wording and signage on the regular. All you need is a chalkboard, or even chalkboard paint over a solid surface, a frame, and you're good to go.

3. Painted Window Signs

Using old windows is another way to add a rustic feel to your business sign. Simply find a piece of clear glass and frame it, or use an actual window from an old farmhouse. Paint your wording on the glass and you have it.

4. Living Plants Signs

Living plants signs are a little more detailed but create a more natural look depending on your business type. Look for 3D letters and fill them with succulents for a low maintenance sign.

5. Recycled Materials Signs

Especially if you're an eco-friendly business, you should try using recycled materials. Not only will this be on display to your potential customers as living proof of your dedication to the planet, but you'll be able to create something 100% unique to your business.

Final Thoughts

Creating a DIY business sign is supposed to be fun while at the same time crafting something that will draw customers again and again. You can use these business sign ideas to get started, but don't hesitate to think outside the box and create signs with other materials that you can find. Think about rope signs and framed signs or hanging signs that can work over entrances and exits.

Whatever type of small business sign you come up with that attracts customers is a great sign idea. Just allow your creativity to shine and you'll have something worthy in no time.
