Sign Pros Name the Most Popular Job Types

Our Brain Squad chimes in with the most common sign jobs (interior ADA signs, channel letters) they are undertaking.




JOIN THE BRAIN SQUAD! To see all the responses from the survey every month, sign up for the Brain Squad:

Interior ADA Signs. There happen to be a considerable amount of new building projects that were awarded that were nearing completion at the end of 2020. There was a push to get them into production and produced by year-end. — Tom Dunn, Metro Sign and Awning, Tewksbury, MA

ADA Interior Signs. Lots of new commercial construction is happening. — Jean Shimp, Shimp Sign & Design, Jacksonville, Fl

Illuminated Signs. Businesses are investing in their branding at this time. — Talon Signs, Victoria, Bc, Canada

Replacement Faces. We are seeing companies doing more rebranding, mergers and acquisitions. — Jeannie Biller, Laurelville, Oh

Exterior Wayfinding Sign Programs. There are many new schools, office parks, etc., opening that need signage. There are also many retail properties that are rebranding and/or updating their look to bring them into the modern age. — Michael Johnson, Henry Graphics, Buford, Ga


Neon Signs. Mainly service work on them, but I’m literally swamped with neon work. We’ve amped up our advertising for the service work we do, so I’m assuming that’s why we’re getting so much of it all of a sudden. — Meri Lindenmuth, G&L’s Sign Factory, Bethlehem, Pa

Channel Letters. In our area many new businesses are opening and we have seen an upswing in channel letter jobs due to a majority being in shopping centers. — Melvin La Pan, Fastsigns, Augusta, Ga

Pylon Signs. Some of our clients had put these projects on hold because of the pandemic and made the decision to move forward at the end of [last] year. — Stephen Russ, Ortwein Sign, Chattanooga, Tn

Service Work. Backed up for customer neglect through summer. — Mike Crosley, Northeastern Sign, South Colton, Ny
