There are over 232 million citizens in the United States that hold a valid driver’s license and over 27,000 in California alone (Statistica, 2023). Driving has become an essential part of everyday life, and businesses must adapt to it. The more individuals drive to businesses, the more an organized parking lot is necessary, as the user experience of a customer begins before they set foot in your store.
Parking signs play a key role in ensuring that the experience of potential customers while driving is positive. From showing customers where to park or not park to influencing driving behavior, such as slowing down or stopping in certain areas, this type of signage is crucial for the overall safety and happiness of all drivers and pedestrians.
Your parking lot can either be a very organized, maneuverable space or a disorganized headache, and the way to choose is through your signage! Your parking signs can communicate with drivers quickly, clearly, and efficiently to indicate what they can and cannot do. Each business sign plays a unique but important role in managing people’s behavior, which can be the difference between organization and chaos.
Here are a few examples of parking signs in San Francisco that you should consider:
Guide your potential customers to your parking lot with clearly displayed lot signs. If individuals know that there is parking near your business, it may sway them in your favor to come to visit.
Do you have areas that are hazardous or are legally required to stay empty? Shout it from the rooftops with clearly marked signage, using both text and a related image.
Keep traffic moving with custom signage that disallows people from sitting in their cards. No need to give others a headache because they cannot get by!
Make your business an inclusive and welcoming space for individuals of all abilities. For some individuals, a closer parking space may be the difference between visiting your business or choosing one of your more accessible competitors.
Want your customers to feel special and seen? Provide your customers with parking spots specially reserved for them. They will know that you appreciate their business and are willing to take the extra step for them, both in the parking lot and through your business.
Make sure your business is up to code by investing in any necessary signage, such as fire lane signs. Avoid any disruption in the event of an emergency by being proactive with your signage.
