Customized Sign Printing Services Has Become A New Trend

Signs are now an integral part of our everyday life. As a person looks around they are continually visually stimulated by the sight of signs. A sign is a method of display that is used to identify, advertise or communicate a place of business, a product, a command, a warning, or a direction.  They are important by not only being a means of communication, but work as guidance, show instruction, and provide the needed information to make a decision or steer away from danger.  

Signs have a lot of value. It is essentially the call for public attention which helps to draw potential customers. With more customers, hopefully, it is resulting in higher profit margins.  Customized signage makes the first impression and can indicate the type of business a person is about to engage with.   An eye-catching office sign may get a consumer to stop in; a colorful and vibrant lobby sign may change a person’s mood.

Hence print service providers, who offer standard and customized sign printing services online, need a robust web-to-print solution with integrated online signage design software that is easy to manage and user-friendly, and designed to support the signage industry.

For now, many business signage printing websites allow users to easily create visually appealing signs in different shapes, materials, sizes, colors, and styles. In addition, the robust back-office administration allows store owners to configure and control their pricing based on unique custom options and features.

Knowing this, CMSMART provides a signage customizer solution to help every business to build their own signage printing websites. 

Our design tool is made to be as simple as possible while also including all the necessary options to create a memorable sign. With a simple editor page, the admin can create their own templates, add custom fonts, images, clipart as needed. For consumers, they could complete a design with just a couple of clicks, choose a background, select the signage options and design their custom signs online in a matter of minutes. Before checking out, they could see how the design looks in the preview mode and make changes before printing if needed.

What you need for a business signage customizer solution

We know that text is the most important part of signage. Sometimes less is more, especially when you are limited on space. So the amount of text is important in planning out the overall sign layout. Even with large signs, you do not always want to fill the whole space. While you want to fill the space, you also don’t want to overcrowd the sign area. It’s important to show your key business information, such as phone number and hours of operation, but any additional information can be saved for a different sign.

The 3D text provides a sense of realism that 2D typography just can't match. Some designer software like Photoshop or Illustrator allows you to easily create Photo Effects and Text Effects from simple to advanced makeovers and for fixing, editing great shots where the light, color balancing, and sharpness need a bit of adjustment or where some elements need to be removed. But not every online designer plugin allows you to do that. 

Ion Multistore is one of our partners. They own a website that provides personalized and copyrighted products. They have a portfolio of more than one hundred product options for new companies to explore the digital sector. These products include signs, signboards, cell phone covers, sneakers, mugs, stationery, among other things.

They purchased our Printshop solution for the printing business and asked us about adding a 3D effect for text into our online design tool. They want to make the text outstanding. The text would contain a side color and font color. Consumers could change the color of these two options. Here is their request:

And here is how it turned out after 2 months that our developers working on it. 

In the backend, the admin could set up to choose which colors could be used for each product. 

To understand this feature, you could refer to the below workflow chart.

This feature only supports 3D text effects for sign letters, not for other kinds of products. So we developed it as an optional feature that could be activated for each product choice. 

And there are 4 types of Sign letters: Channel Letter, Resin Letter, Acrylic Letter, and Block Letter. But only the first three could choose the front and side color differently as mentioned above. Only block letters allow you to choose 1 option for both front and side color.
