December 20, 2022

The winter months present unique challenges for small businesses. The weather becomes colder, which limits the amount of foot traffic passing outside. Grey days and snowy weather can make it difficult for customers to find you. Many people also change their schedule when the days get shorter, and they want to spend their nights at home.

If you run a business, it is important that your signage changes with the season. For instance, restaurant owners don’t need a sign advertising patio seating when it is 20 degrees outside. Conversely, that same restaurant may want to put out a sign advertising hot soups and holiday meals.

If you want to make the most of your holiday signage this winter, plan ahead. Use these simple tips to have the most impact this winter.
