Signage Tips for New Religious Organizations
Good signage is a tried and true way for a religious organization to attract new members and foster a sense of community.
You're proud of your new religious organization and you've quickly realized that signage will play an important role in bringing new participants through your doors.
But before you start shopping for signs, there are a few things you'll need to consider.
Since you are a religious startup, it's likely that you're leasing space. Landlords tend to be particular about signage and usually include signage restrictions in the lease. If you haven't discussed signage with your landlord yet, it's a conversation you need to have ASAP.
If (like many religious organization startups) you are leasing shared space to hold weekly services, your signage options are even more limited. It is extremely unlikely that the owner of the space will allow you to install permanent signage if you are only renting the space for an hour or two each week.
However, owners tend to be more flexible about temporary signage. There are multiple types of temporary signage, but many religious organizations put out folding, tent-shaped signs on the day of the service and remove them when they leave the space.
