It Was A Tall Order – Outdoor Electrical Community Centre Sign

Designing a Community Centre Electrical Sign

When were contacted to create a sign for the Township of Puslinch’s Community Park, we knew visibility would be a key component for this sign project.  The  outdoor sign was to be located on Brock Rd near Wellington Rd 34 in an area that is surrounded by trees, fields and four lanes of traffic.  This meant that the electrical roadside sign would need to be visible from many directions.  In order to achieve this, The Puslinch Community Park sign was constructed to encompass a 4’x7′ digital display.  The digital display would provide info about the local community and in turn would catch the attention of those driving by.  In addition the outdoor electrical  sign would need to highlight the logos of local community organizations and information about the centre itself.  In order to include all of these requirements a 20 FOOT TALL electrical sign was constructed and installed outside of the Township Of Puslinch’s Community Centre.  It included a digital reader-board along with acrylic sign faces and vinyl graphics displaying the community organizations.  Now that’s an attention grabber!

Size Matters

Choosing how big your outdoor sign needs to be can be a challenge.  You want your sign to be eye-catching and display all the required info.  Wondering how to tall your exterior signs need to be?  Use this quick sign letter reference guide below.

If your viewing distance is 100 ft then your min. height requirement is 4″ *250 ft = 10″ *360 ft (city block) = 16″ *500 ft = 22″ *750 ft = 33″ *1000 ft = 43″ *1320 ft (1/4 mile) = 57″

You can also email The Sign Depot pictures of the front of your establishment and we can send you a mock up of how your sign will look on the exterior of your building.  We design with your budget in mind.  Big or small we have signage for all!
