Learn about why cabinet signs in Plattsburgh, NY, are some of the most effective signs in Northern New York and Vermont, and how to get the most out of yours.
A cabinet sign is a type of sign that is named for its shape. They are also called box signs and the box or cabinet part houses a lighting fixture. The light projects through the sign panel that sits at the front of the cabinet. You can choose pretty much any light fixture that you want, but the most popular light sources are LEDs. LEDs are brighter and exceptionally more efficient than incandescent bulbs. They also don’t have the unpleasant bluish hue that fluorescent lights have. LEDs last a very long time and they save you money on your energy bill.
Cabinet signs can be used indoors or outdoors, but they are more commonly seen inside. Cabinet signs are usually used for commercial purposes, but not always. Airports typically use cabinet signs to provide wayfinding information to travelers. Because airport terminals are typically quite large and have high ceilings, it makes sense to use a lighted sign to increase visibility and to stand out. Malls and other buildings also use cabinet signs for this purpose.
In terms of commercial use, cabinet signs can identify and promote businesses, brand interior spaces, promote specific product lines, and provide marketing information such as a logo or slogan. If you install a cabinet sign at the front of your business, or somewhere it can be seen through your front window, you can generate a lot of impressions. Because they are lighted, cabinet signs stand out at night and in the rain, fog, and snow, when non-lighted signs are hard to see.
A lighted sign will typically cost more than a non-lighted sign of the same size. But they’re often worth the extra investment. Being bright enough to stand out in dark conditions and to outcompete other visual stimuli makes lighted signs more effective a grabbing people’s attention. And cabinet signs specifically can be used for a long time. If you rebrand your business or want to convey different information, you’d normally have to buy a whole new sign. With a cabinet sign, you can just have a new panel designed and swap out the old one.
