visibilty

Viewing distance is the primary factor. Your sign and the message it conveys must be readily distinguishable from the surroundings. When you don't have room for lettering as large as you would like, we try using light-colored letters on a dark background. The contrast will make the lettering appear larger and potential customers and viewers will find it easier to read. Have a look at the chart below to ge a fair idea of visibility:
