"Notice how hokey "PROPERTY MANAGEMENT" looks in your photo. It takes the brain a few seconds to decode this segmented message. Do the letters really need to be that big? Most storefront windows like this are for pedestrian traffic walking up to the entrance. Typically, there is a main sign on a sign band above the windows that is intended for longer range viewing. If this is not the case in your situation, and the business needs a large image or text to reach a long distance, I would re-evaluate the appropriateness of the location for the business. If it is a destination business, smaller signs on the windows will work fine (the customer is going there anyhow - they just need to know they are at the right place). If the business relies on impulse purchases (Property Management would not be considered an impulse purchase), a properly designed storefront that allows for appropriate signage is essential."
I had aksed if anybody could help me with figuring out an easier way to go over the mullions. I did not ask for design opionion ("notice how hokey") or instruction. I have owned my own sign shop for 20 years and have done A LOT of windows. I know what a storefront is for. It is for whatever my customer wants. They want 24" lettering on their windows, so be it. I will guide them to get to a better design, but as far as I know, the customer is always right.
I have attached a sample of vinyl over the mullions. I think it looks a hell of a better than the artwork being seperated. I don't know how it is in Illinois, but here in California, going over the mullions is now becoming the new standard.
While your response was somewhat appreciated, it did make me feel as though I was being mansplained to, which I did not appreciate.
