Your business needs a lobby sign. Whether you are opening your first office, relocating to a new location, or upgrading what is currently displayed on your focal wall, this signage solution has the power to make a great first impression. However, make a mistake here, and the first impression may not be good – or memorable. Our sign shop expert weighs in on lobby sign options.
Choose a Material with Your Brand Message in Mind
What does your brand say about your company? If you are a holistic healer with an emphasis on a back-to-nature approach, a bamboo sign makes more sense than a product featuring metal laminates. For a pediatric doctor, acrylic is a good choice because we can paint it in any color of the rainbow. An architect may do well with glass or metal. We can help you think through your options to select the material that is ideally suited for you.
There are Workarounds When the Budget is Tight
In the past, some business owners may have decided not to do anything. That is a mistake. If your budget is tight, there are still plenty of options open to you. For example, sign foam is inexpensive, impressive, and suitable for painting or dressing up with acrylic or metal laminates. Your sign can look like an expensive structure without actually being that. Moreover, PVC and even wall graphics make excellent lobby signage solutions.
Installation Methods Can Bring out the 3D Appeal of a Sign
If you choose a lobby logo board, we typically install it with standoffs. By far the most frequently selected design involves round, brushed metal products. But you might pick something different. Squares or triangles may work better for your brand message. Moreover, bold colors can boost branding when we add these types of standoffs to your signage.
For dimensional letters, most clients favor a flush-mount installation. But if you like the idea of giving the impression that the style elements are floating above the wall’s surface, we can use spacers and pin mounts. This is not a DIY job. Do not entrust your maintenance department with the installation of the individual letters. Our installers go through extensive training to get the spacing and alignment of the items just right.
Optional Add-On Features
In the past, you might install a lobby sign and call it a day. However, brand expressions have become more sophisticated. As a result, consumers are beginning to expect more from the companies they do business with. You see this reflected in more and more lobby signs now.
A good example is the use of illumination. Hidden LEDs behind lobby logo boards create an attractive halo effect. It also adds an eye-catching element to your signage. Choose bright white lighting or opt for colorful illumination instead. Some businesses now choose to present wall graphics alongside their lobby signs as well. Doing so can boost a 3D appeal and add some local color to the mix.
