There is always a lot going on in a busy city like Denver and the surrounding suburbs and construction seems to be the busiest. It’s everywhere – new buildings, remodeling, home developments, retail, road, schools, restaurants, hotels and more.
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.

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.

Signs play such an important role in the communication of our society. On construction sites, it is very important that the signage placed around the site is clear and easy to read. Safety signs help remind workers to wear hard-hats and other proper protective equipment. Site signs displayed on the outside of these construction sites inform the public to stay out as well as information about the work being done. There have been hundreds of recorded accidents in the past, so it’s important to the company to remind workers and the public of the rules and regulations.
Construction sites usually have a fenced perimeter. Mesh fence banners are a great way to compliment the perimeter with additional information or to give some privacy to the workers. Mesh banners also provide some privacy and wind protection. These banners are similar to vinyl banners, but allow for more air to pass through the material. This, however, does affect how the final print looks. Colors will not be as opaque as digitally printed vinyl banners, but from a distance it doesn’t really matter.
Here at Connecting Signs, we utilize a flat-bed printer that allows us to print directly onto the sign panel. This enables us to print, cut the panel to size and add finishing touches a lot faster! The printer also uses UV ink. UV ink does not need to have lamination to protect it, it is fade and weather resistant all on its own. The prints that come out of this printer last just as long, if not longer, as the prints that come off the latex inkjet printer. Depending on the variables of the job, we’ll work with you to go through your best options.
