Homebuilder Signs Greeley Colorado

Corrugated Homebuilder Signs

Yard signs ready for delivery!

Baessler Homes is an established and successful property developer located in Greeley, Colorado. They have been building high-quality homes in the Northern Colorado area since 1968. Building a house or any large permanent structure is an important job that needs to be taken very seriously and these guys are one of the best! Baessler Homes contacted us to print some of their homebuilder signs not too long ago. Our flatbed printer was perfect for these flat and simple signs that also needed to be completed quickly as well as in high quantities.

The order process is easy! We receive files through email or a file sharing site that allows large files to be sent to us, and our team of designers ensure that the design is correct by sending a design proof that specifies all the important information. Once the design is final, the files are sent to the flatbed printer! This machine is extremely useful. If we were to print the designs on digitally printable vinyl (like vehicle wraps), we would also have to laminate them and then lay the vinyl on the panel. There’s more steps than that, but with the flatbed printer we’re able to cut the sign panel down to size, and hit “print”, and that’s it! For local companies like Baessler Homes, we offer delivery as well.

Rigid signs can come in a variety of materials because sometimes you need a sign to be temporary, but still be able to withstand the elements. Metal signs usually come in aluminum so that they’re not too heavy. Corrugated plastic signs are made from coroplast and are easy to carry for easy transportation. Sometimes vinyl banners are the best signage choice for builders because they’re easily attached to perimeter fencing. To allow for airflow, mesh banners are the best choice for fence banner signage. If you’re ready to place your order for homebuilder signs, give us a call or fill out this form and get your signs ordered today!

Outdoor Flags & Mesh Fence Banners for Construction Sites

In these busy times, new buildings are going up faster than most of us realize and before we know it, there’s a new mall full of shops or a new neighborhood full of houses. These property development sites need signage just like any other business. People want to know what new businesses are being established and when projects will be completed. When done correctly, these signs will not only inform your audience. They will help grow your business through effective signage!

Site signage includes, but is not limited to: post and panel signs, flags, mesh fence banners, trailer graphics, vehicle graphics, etc. Most construction sites require some safety signs along the perimeter of the area being developed. Safety signs need to have clear lettering and must be displayed along all entrances. Sometimes they need to be reflective to stand out even more at night.  Read more about construction site safety signs.

construction site outdoor signs and flags

One stand-out star in site signage is mesh fence banners and outdoor flags. Outdoor flags are a different product that are usually installed on tall vertical posts. Since they blow and will spin in the wind (because they’re made of fabric), you will want to avoid having any contact information on them. A one-color logo and bold, bright colors in the background are the way to go! These allow for a unique and creative way to show your brand. Mesh fence banners are made from a synthetic mesh material that allows for more airflow when installed on a fence. They may seem too thin and transparent when viewed from close-up, but from far away they look solid. Mesh fence banners also provide the privacy that most construction sites require.

Having clear and highly visible signs can be a tricky thing to manage. On one hand, you must abide by the rules and regulations of the city and on the other hand you must stand out as much as possible. Local governments make it easy enough to understand the sign code, but having a reliable and informed signage partner who can navigate and acquire all the signatures and permits will make the process so much easier for you.

Connecting Signs is proud to be that reliable signage partner for you and your business. Being a small business, we know how hard and daunting a simple task can be. Our experienced sign experts are here to answer any and all questions you may have about getting your signs up and working for you. Give us a call or request a quote here to connect with us!

The importance of traffic signs and colors

The Importance of colors in Traffic Signs

Have you ever wondered why handicapped parking places are always marked with blue placards or blue paint? And why do construction sites always have warning signs and pylons in orange? As early as 1899, owners of “horseless carriages” met to form an automobile club. The main topic of conversation was “We need traffic signs.”  As many as 11 directional signs were sometimes found at one intersection and the group hoped to establish guidelines to minimize the confusion.

Following the conference, traffic signs were still erected haphazardly with no real plan or design. In the 1920s, efforts to standardize signs by color began. Originally, the color red for stop signs was rejected as being too difficult to see at night. Pursuant to a survey and recommendations of users of both urban and rural roads, it was finally agreed that the stop sign would have red letters on a yellow background.

In 1935, a Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) was issued in order to standardize signs nationwide. Through the years, the manual has been updated, supplemented and amended several times. Following WW II, major changes were made, including changing the stop sign to white letters on a red background.  The goal was to be sure that traffic signs in Colorado were the same as traffic signs in other states.
Companies that sell traffic signs know that today, there are seven colors that are used for broad categories to cover the need for signs ranging from those that guide travelers to their destinations to those that warn of dangers. Traffic sign companies comply with these standardized colors for each category of sign they produce.

  • Red:  Tells motorists to stop and remain stopped until it is safe to proceed.
  • Green:   Acts as a guide. It gives highway directions and tells how far it is from one place to another.
  • Yellow:  Gives a general warning such as, “Slow. Children at play” or “Slow. School zone” or “Deer Crossing.”  Railroad crossings are marked with yellow signs. The color acts as an advisory of road conditions that are coming up.
  • Black and white: Warns drivers of enforceable regulations and laws. “One Way Street” and “Dead End Road” are two examples.
  • Blue:  Informs motorists of available services such as restaurants, hospitals, hotel, gasoline, rest areas, campgrounds and picnic areas. Handicapped parking spaces fall into this category because they provide a service.
  • Orange:  Is the color for construction signs that alert drivers to upcoming road construction or maintenance.
  • Brown: Directs drivers to areas of historical or cultural significance, including scenic sites or national parks.

Whatever type of traffic sign you may need, Connecting Signs is here for you.  We understand more than the standard rules of color and shape.  We understand size and placement so the information can be read and understood easily.  Give us call and stay safe out there!

Traffic Signs, and the significance of their colors

Have you ever wondered why handicapped parking places are always marked with blue placards or blue paint? And why do construction sites always have warning signs, barricades, and pylons in orange? As early as 1899, owners of “horseless carriages” met to form an automobile club. The main topic of conversation was “We need traffic signs.”  As many as 11 directional signs were sometimes found at one intersection and the group hoped to establish guidelines to minimize the confusion.

The purpose of traffic signs

The Purpose of Traffic Signs

If you commute regularly, there’s no doubt that you experience construction signs regularly along your route. Traffic signs are utilized as a method of warning and guiding drivers, helping to regulate the flow of traffic among vehicles, pedestrians, motorcycles, bicycles and others who travel the streets, highways and other roadways.

All road traffic signs, construction signs, and parking lot signs are intended to convey a clear, yet simple message. The signs should always be prominent enough to command attention and placed in a manner that gives drivers adequate time to respond to the command.

Before traffic signs are placed, municipalities will commission an engineering study to gauge its necessity and usefulness in a particular location. After all, no one would want to travel roadways where signs are placed haphazardly and without just cause. Doing so would eventually cause some drivers to fail to respect the traffic signs, possibly causing traffic incidents instead of preventing them.

Traffic signs are consistent from one municipality to another – the reason is simple. Let’s say, for example, that a driver is travelling across several states. Construction signs in Texas conform to the same design as construction signs in Colorado (or any other state, for that matter), so that the messaging is not confusing when a driver is operating in unfamiliar regions.

Going back to their overall purpose for a moment, road traffic signs in Colorado are placed for the purpose of warning drivers and maintaining a steady traffic flow; inconsistent messaging would make that difficult (if not entirely impossible) in a highly mobile society with motor vehicle operators travelling unfamiliar regions every single day.

Following are just a few of the types of traffic signs currently utilized:

  • Regulatory Signs: An example of regulatory signs are speed limit, No U-Turn, One-Way, No Parking and Road Closed signs. They regulate the speed and flow of traffic and parking.
  • Warning Signs: Warning signs are bright yellow and serve to warn drivers of such things as merging traffic, railroad and bicycle crossings and traffic signals ahead.
  • School Signs: School signs warn drivers that a school is nearby, directing them to drop their speeds and to watch for children and pedestrians.

Our team will be happy to provide you with consulting services, should you need them, as well as a full line of standard and one-of-a-kind custom traffic and parking lot signs for your project.
