Swing and Blade Signs

It’s no secret for any business owner that one of the best ways to attract people from the street to your shop or café is to catch their eyes with something unique and unusual.

We know how important this is, which is why we always give you a variety of options presented by our team of professionals. If you want to have a really unique blade sign or swing sign – contact us!

First Things First – What Is a Blade Sign?

In a nutshell, a sign which is attached to the façade, or pole, or your storefront strictly perpendicular to the traffic flow is called a blade sign. Such placement makes it almost impossible for people to miss this hanging outdoor sign, which is why these signs are considered to be extremely useful when it comes to attracting people.

And What Is a Swing Sign?

The only difference between a blade sign and a swing sign is the way the sign is attached. While the blade sign just hangs on a pole, the swing sign represents a poster holder or a graphic panel that is fixed to the hinges on the frame. The construction allows the swing sign to move in the windy environment, making it the perfect eye-catcher.

Monument or pole signs

Once Again, What Are the Main Difference Between Hanging Business Signs?

To sum up and to be perfectly clear on custom hanging signs, blade signs generally hang down on a pole horizontally. The pole is attached to another vertical pole, or to the wall, or to the storefront. Swing signs usually have static poles or bars, and the poster is – surprise – free to swing.

  • Round blade sign. Standard blade sign with a round form
  • Wood blade sign. Such custom outdoor hanging signs are specifically made of wood, which creates an absolutely unique look.
  • Illuminated blade sign. One of the most beautiful types of hanging business signs; as the contour of the sign, or the letters, or logo is illuminated by LED lamps.
