What’s Your Sign?

Jan 30, 2024

When asked, "What's your sign?" most people might say Cancer, Virgo or another one of the 12 zodiac signs of Western astrology. If that question is asked at a sign company —like Custom Graphics— the answer would be very different!

We used our signage expertise to compare each of the traditional signs to the signs we're more familiar with. Keep reading to see which sign you are the most similar to based on your zodiac sign!

ARIES March 21 - April 19

Ambitious, Bold, Impulsive, Competitive

Like an Aries, Electronic Message Centers (referred to as EMC's) are energetic and highly active. This type of sign is also referred to as a digital billboard and is increasing in popularity by the day! Although they have a large up-front cost, an EMC makes a bold statement and grabs the attention of a massive audience. Businesses who invest in EMC's often have ambitious goals for their future. The graphics on an EMC can be changed in just a couple minutes allowing for a business to change their sign's content as they please, offer competitive discounts, or advertise impulsive last-minute specials!


TAURUS  April 20 - May 20

Stubborn, Determined, Practical, Artistic

Lit Channel Letter Signs are a very practical form of advertisement for most businesses, and are often required by landlords. Although it may seem like a landlord is being stubborn for requiring a Lit Channel Letter sign, it creates for a professional and consistent look along a strip mall. Lit Channel Letters signs are highly customizable. With a determined sign company and an artistic eye, a standard channel letter sign can represent a brand and draw customers in!

GEMINI  May 21 - June 20

Duality, Outgoing, Playful, Extroverted

Blade signs are mounted perpendicular to a storefront, making them 'extroverted' from a building. Much like a Gemini, Blade Signs can have two totally different sides. These signs are most commonly used in areas with heavy foot traffic so pedestrians and outgoing socialites won't have to struggle to look at signage flat against a building. These signs can be made in all shapes, colors and can be as playful as desired!

CANCER  June 21 - July 22

Security-Seeking, Protective, Dependable, Strong

Awnings and Cancers share many qualities including their protective instincts. Awnings are mounted above the entrance of a building and can be a variety of lengths and shapes. An awning provides an area of security for customers as they're entering or exiting a business. Most commercial awnings are built with a strong metal frame that will withstand harsh weather conditions. Awnings can be covered with many different materials. Some are stretched with textured fabric that gives a "soft" approachable look and others are stretched with a dependable, backlit heavy-duty fabric that can be lit from the inside!


LEO July 23 - August 22

Confident, Dominant, Dramatic, Brave

Pylon signs are the tallest, most dominant type of sign. They can range in height from 10 to 100 feet tall! These signs are intended to be seen from great distances. Up close, these signs seem a bit dramatic due to their size, but the size is necessary to be viewed at a distance. We send our bravest installers when repairing or applying graphics to these signs as it is quite the feat to reach some of them. (Especially in windy North Dakota) To invest in a sign of great scale, we recommend that you are confident in your business as they can be a sizeable investment.

VIRGO  August 23 - September 22

Reliable, Logical, Modest, Perfectionist

A staple of any brick and mortar business is having vinyl door hours. Although it's not the most exciting form of signage, modest white lettering on a front door is a reliable way to communicate with customers and foot traffic. Common information shared on a front door are hours of operation, contact information, and business name. Purchasing vinyl for the front door of a business is a logical first step to opening a new business location. It is a low-cost investment so if change your mind about the color or placement, it is easy to adjust and to perfect.

Door Hours

LIBRA  September 23 - October 22

Sociable, Balanced, Collaborator, Indecisive

Custom Cornhole Boards and Libras both flourish in social settings. Cornhole is a yard game played with two teams tossing bean bags at the opposite team's board. If both teams are balanced, a game of cornhole can last for hours! Custom Cornhole Boards are a perfect choice for an indecisive buyer; the boards is commonly made with two different designs.

SCORPIO  October 23 - November 21

Bold, Creative, Passionate, Honest

Banners and Scorpios are alike in their unlimited creative potential. A Banner can be as small as a couple feet and as large as the size of a semi trailer! The content of a Banner can be anything from an honest attention-grabbing statement to a bold piece of art. Banners are most commonly purchased to show appreciation for milestones in life like birthdays, retirement, or graduations!


SAGITTARIUS  November 22 - December 21

Lively, Adventurous, Energetic, Forgiving

Neon Signs and Sagittarius are often found in lively places like bars, boutiques and restaurants. Neon Signs are electric signs that are made with tubes of light. Traditional neon signs are made of neon or argon gas inside of glass tubing. This type of neon signage is expensive and fragile. Most Neon Signs manufactured today are made with LED lights and plastic tubing which is much more forgiving in both cost and durability. The LED Neon Signs allow for even more adventurous color schemes and shapes than traditional Neon Signs.

Neon Signs

CAPRICORN  December 22 - January 19

Honest, Practical, Hardworking, Critical

Capricorns and Yard Signs both make a large impact when utilized to their full potential. Yard Signs display short, honest statements or pieces of information. They can make a critical difference in political campaigns, or the success of a yard sale by increasing awareness. Yard Signs are most effective when used in bulk and placed in a wide geographic area. On our online store, we sell Yard Signs at a very practical price of $3.62 per sign when buying 25 or more!

Yard Signs

AQUARIUS  January 20 - February 18

Innovative, Independent, Technical, Unique

Aquarius and Monument signs are both very independent. A Monument sign stands close to eye level, anywhere from 5 to 10 feet off the ground. They are often placed at the entrance of a business or property to grab the attention of passing traffic an lead guests in the right direction. Monument signs can be customized as desired to feature logos and colors to fit within the unique brand standards of any organization. As long as the structure is built technically sound, a Monument sign can be made with innovative shapes and materials!

Monument Signs

PISCES  February 19 - March 20

Adaptable, Artistic, Imaginative, Impressionable

Floor Graphics and Pisces are alike in their ability to leave a lasting impression. Floor Graphics are commonly used for short-term installments and events, or for wayfinding purposes. They can be adapted to adhere to wood, stone, or even a staircase! Most Floor Graphics are not full coverage which allows for imaginative shapes and artistic choices to shine!
