A sign at the front of your business greets your customers and gives them their initial impression of your company. Ensuring that you have the right signs to display the correct message is essential.
A professional sign placed at your reception area will help present who your company is to new clients. They can help demonstrate the image and culture of your business and create a positive and professional first impression.
Office and Lobby Signs
These signs act as the first piece of branding a client will see when they walk through your doors. Just as with reception signs, these signs will also provide insight into the culture and professionalism of your company.
Common Types of Signs
Backlit Office Signs
A backlit sign will help ensure that your message gets noticed. These signs have LED strips placed behind them to provide a glow around your sign. The LEDs are available in a variety of colours to match your brand. You can use backlighting on a variety of sign types, including cut metal panels, individual letters, and on the edges of glass signs.
Dimensional Sign Letters and Logos
3D letters are made from a solid material, such as metal, acrylic or wood and are individually mounted to the wall. They come in two varieties, flat cut and channel letters. Flat cut letters are thinner and are created using a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine. Channel letters consist of bent metal or plastic channels that are then attached to form custom letters or symbols.
Placing letters or symbols on a piece of material creates a panel sign. The panel can be made of a clear, frosted, or solid coloured material such as acrylic, glass, metal, or wood. The panel helps with installation, creating a more substantial sign, and make it easy to move the entire sign if needed. You can choose to use 3D letters and symbols on the panel, or a print if the design is too complex to create in three dimensions.
Office Door Signs
These signs help direct people and provide information about what or who is behind the door. Common types of signs used on office doors include raised acrylic letters, engraved metal, nameplates, door plates, and vinyl decals.
Materials Commonly Used in Office Signs
Cut Metals – Popular metals include aluminum, stainless steel, copper, bronze, and brass.
Cut Acrylic – Cut pieces of acrylic, available in clear, frosted, and coloured finishes.
Acrylic with Metal Laminate – Cut acrylic with metallic faces and coloured edges.
Fabricated Stainless Steel Logos – Stainless steel with brushed or mirror-polished finishes.
