    i think your doing a rare old job at getting a presence karl, ๐Ÿ˜€ but i think you may have used too many faces/people in your designs… i think this sort of thing happens allot when you design each sign individually as opposed to designing them all to work with each other.

    quick fix for now, i would loose the word SEX on the projecting banners. a bit of white vinyl over that will do the trick ๐Ÿ˜‰

    on a side note… from what i can see, planning doesn’t seem to be an issue for you. could you do something with the "shop front" as opposed to the signage? that is what actually needs the work… just a good paint job and maybe a more welcoming door. the door you have now sort of makes the shop look closed.

    Karl
    only my opinion,
    seeing as you asked,

    I hope the signage works,
    but if I was driving by, my first thought would be that it looks like a sex shop, windows covered, door shut and the pole banners with SEX prominent on the girls tee shirts. The first thing that grabs the eye is the girls!
    I could be wrong, just my thoughts,

    once again hope it works for you

    Serious note, the front does need to be ‘opened up a bit’ & appear a bit more welcoming / comfortable.

    Maybe in danger of losing the shop entrance in amongst such a heavy advertising…and entirely ‘male orientated’.

    Just my thoughts

    I will agree, the front door has been a problem. Many have said the shop looks closed so yes i’ll take your advice and change this.
    Rob. The word sex didn’t really hit me until the banners, if you’ll pardon the pun, were erected. These will be covered very quickly ๐Ÿ˜ณ
    Peter, I think you’re going a bit over the top mate, but you have made me laugh.
    As for painting the building I think a chat with the landlord may be a good idea on that one. The landord at the other shop basically gave me a free reign on that to do as I please. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Thanks for all the comments chaps!

    is it a sex shop and you’ve just thrown in the name ‘Signpoint’ to confuse people? Maybe you are a pimp ……..
    Or maybe you’re just extremely frustrated ? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It’s a wee bit intimidating …… I agree you have to open up your doorway ……… make it more inviting. ๐Ÿ˜€ Then you might get some ……. sign work! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks for all the comments everyone! ๐Ÿ˜•
    As stated already, the sex thing on the t-shirt will go. I must admit I printed these without noticing how much this stood out, but like I said these will be covered up very soon.
    Shane. Regarding Photoshop. Not bragging here, but I taught myself how to use this. Many late nights over a long period of time but I think i’ve just about cracked it! Thanks for the comments buddy.
    As for biting the bullet on using the girls, I can’t take on board your comment. These work, so where does bite the bullet come from?

    I think the design work looks great.

    I have to agree with Dave though, very male orientated. Depending on your customers maybe this isn’t a problem for you. We have women of all ages coming round here and I would not be happy with that kind of theme… horses for courses though.

    In fact… before we got the printer and were deciding and testing we had some sample and one was of a ‘hotty’ on the beach. The boys were delighted when they got to go and fit it in the car park but not so delighted when they had to turn it round – don’t want to offend the grannies!

    This is entirely based on our situation and customer base.

    They were referring to the word sex on the banner. The girls don’t make it look like a sex shop, they draw peoples attention which is the intention.

    Karl,

    I realise that….. but if that is the impression people have of the shop do you really think that removing the word "sex" will totally change their opinions.

    Surely the fact you have pretty girls in the signs has added to the confusion..

    Quite apart from the ‘sex’ on t-shirts bit, the signs immediately remind me of the adverts in the back pages of the Sun or Daily Sport, ‘Call this number for sleazy sex talk’ and such like!

    Sorry Karl, you did ask!

    I think referring to them as the daily sport is a bit harsh, but maybe I am starting to see your point on that one.
    Well it’s either back to the drawing board or burn the shop down! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    Karl,

    Obviously a pretty face helps to sell & will get you noticed….you’ve just got to flick through the sign magazines to see that….I just think that if you had used the girls images within an A board or an image of a banner with the girls faces on it would be a lot more subtle

    If a picture paints a thousand words….I just don’t think what you have says signs

    To be honest Lee and joking apart I think this topic has been ripped apart mate. I take the comments on the chin and listen to what people say and try to draw a positive outlook on them. Yes there is justification in most of the responses but I think this has deliberately been dragged into the gutter because of a mistake on the ladies t-shirt. It’s not gritty advertising. It’s effective advertising and it works. Since the last post i have decided to keep with it and see how it goes. The sex on the t-shirt will be covered though.

    I’ve never smoked in my life, none of my immediate family either. But my Uncle (my dads little brother) and aunt smoked 60 a day for a long time. (My grandfather was the same. He lost a lung as a result. Died from emphysema.)

    My dad was always on their back about giving it up. Ended up spraying a full can of air freshener until the can was empty every time we went around for a visit. They got the message eventually and gave it up cold turkey. 60 to zero overnight. No patches back then either.

    Unfortunately he still died of cancer on his 50th birthday, but my aunt is still going strong.

    They reckon its never too late to stop Karl (and Harry) My uncle lived long enough to see his son get married, but never saw his grand children.

    Don’t want to put a downer on the thread, but with little ones growing up, you’ve got so much to look forward too, don’t ya think?

    (just trying to give you some more incentive) Hope you’re feeling better today mate. Hang in there.

    Well I tried phoning the freephone number (just out of interest) and I can reliably report back that all I heard was heavy breathing…

    or more likely …an asthmatic wheeze ๐Ÿ˜•

    Honest professional opinion as you asked.
    I think it looks tacky and unprofessional and looks like the shops run by a perv.
    You need impact as people go by and the listings of what you do are much to small and can’t be read if your driving past. People are lazy and won’t bother reading if they have to READ it.
    Also I think it is totally wrong to blank out the windows on any shop if you need passing trade as people need to look in and it needs to feel welcoming, people are afraid of the unknown and won’t come in. I’ve seen people fail because of this.
    Sorry if this is harsh but your business is at stake here !

    I have to say that this has to be the best thread I have read on any forum in a long long time. I just about spit out my drink laughing when I read this post.

    Here you go then Karl.

    The only sign we have is that vertical one to the right of the roller shutter, but I’m thinking of taking that down because although we are not in a high street location it does attract the wrong sort of customer. The only thing stopping me is that it helps delivery drivers to find us because the council fouled up the house numbering and they are all out of sequence.

    Sorry I’ve not replied John. For some strange reason I’m not being notified when a new reply is made. Thanks for posting though mate.
    Ironic about the branding on the cars though. :lol1:
