How to Design a High-impact Transit Shelter Sign

August 20, 2018

Placing an advertisement poster or Digital sign in a transit shelter has become a popular and affordable way in which to draw attention to your business and its offering. A transit shelter Adcan, static or digital sign, may be all that you need to increase sales this month – as long as you design it strategically.  Here are some top tips by Provincial Sign Systems, the leading transit-shelter signage specialists in Canada.

  • Make it Eye-Catching

It matters where and how you advertise. The key is to grab people’s attention, right? Transit Shelters are at eye level, a rare advertising opportunity. That is why it is so important to make sure that your transit shelter digital sign or poster is eye-catching. Bright colours, beautiful images and bold writing are always great choices.

  • Get Clever

As with all types of advertising, you want people to remember you after they see your bus-shelter sign. The easiest way to make sure that you stick in their minds is to get clever with the copy, content and/or visuals that you use on your sign. For example, Real Hip Hop recently did a transit shelter poster that featured a stand-alone afro as a visual, so that when people sat down on the bench to wait for their bus, it looked like they were sporting an impressive new hair-do. Simple design quirks like this go a long way, and they need not cost you extra!

  • Use a Reputable Transit Shelter Sign Company

Even if you have an excellent marketing team in your corner that is able to come up with an exceptional slogan, you’ll still need an experienced transit-shelter sign company to help you pull it off.
