The Signs and Banners Buying Guide

Signs and Banners

Signs and banners are a great way to communicate with your visitors and provide information to keep your site organized and safe. With so many types and options of signs and banners, there’s sure to be one that’s perfect for your site. We’ll review the available options of signs and banners and the ideal application for each.

Indoor Signs

If you’re looking for a sign to be placed indoors, you have many options. Bulletin boards are sign boards that are typically hung on walls that contain a corkboard backing. This backing allows you to pin helpful information to the board and also provides flexibility to frequently and easily change your messages. Bulletin boards are perfect for community centers and break rooms.

Directories are pedestal or mountable signs that are completely customizable and changeable. Directories are perfect for lobbies and other common areas and work great to display room numbers, office locations and general directions around your site.

Message posts and stands are another option for indoor signage. Message posts and stands are pedestal style signage and this option allows you to display any printed material. There are also several options that have dry erase signage for more flexibility with your messages.

Facility signs are also available and include recycling signage and regulations signage (No Pets, Authorized Personnel Only, etc). Facility signs help keep visitors out of restricted areas, serve as reminders of the rules of your site, and help to keep your indoor areas clean.  Facility signs are perfect for lobbies and common areas.

Outdoor Signs

Outdoor signs are not only designed with outdoor appropriate messages but are also built to withstand outdoor conditions. If you’re looking for a sign to place outdoors, you have several options.

Safety, traffic & parking signs are perfect for keeping you parking lot and outdoor area safe and organized. There are several options, including custom signs, so even if we don’t have the message you want, you can customize it yourself.


Roadside and entry signs are perfect for marking an indoor or outdoor entryway. These signs help direct your customers and visitors and allow them to easily find your business.  As the name suggests, roadside and entry signs are recommended for placement off of roadways and near entryways.

Message centers are similar to bulletin boards in that they have cork board backing for easy pinning and removing of messages. Message centers are built to endure outdoor conditions and use. Most of our message centers are made of recycled plastic lumber and feature shatter-proof clear plastic panes. Message centers are great for parks, golf courses, trails, and other public outdoor areas.


Banners are great to clearly and visibility display any message. Not only do banners convey a message, but they also draw attention of passerby’s. They are typically used for outdoor setting and are most commonly hung from posts using banner brackets. Many types and sizes of banners are available including welcome banners, holiday banners, custom banners, and many more. Banners are often used on city streets and parks and for festivals or other gatherings. 


Flags are a perfect way to display patriotism, state pride, and add another aesthetic to your site.  Upbeat offers American flags, state flags, real estate flags, and flagpoles.
