LESS IS MORE
We often get entrepreneurs calling us with a big and sometimes gaudy business sign idea. They believe that their message will get across better if they incorporate more copy, spend more money, have more creative designs, and throw together more colors. We are more than happy to offer these types of lobby signs, but we believe that when it comes to office signage, less is more. That is why we provide our clients with multiple alternatives to choose from before fabricating the marker that best matches their corporate image.
MATERIALS ARE KEY
Did you know that the materials you choose for your lobby sign will have a huge impact on the visual message you convey? It’s true. Even if you use the same corporate logo and colors, an acrylic sign will project a different image than an aluminum marker. This makes your material choice crucial. Here are some common alternatives:
- Acrylic – Acrylic is one of the most popular signage materials around these days. This is because of its durability, affordability, and the glossy appearance it conveys. Acrylic can perfectly mimic glass at a fraction of the cost. We can even incorporate LED lighting into acrylic signs for a cutting edge, upscale look.
- Aluminum – Valued for its professional presentation, aluminum letters also last a long time and are cost effective. There are a variety of finishes, including polishing or brushing. To save money, aluminum laminate can be applied to sign foam or acrylic. And, backlighting will provide elegant feel to your lobby area.
- Wood and Stone – Natural materials, such as stone or wood, are ideal for spas and alternative healers. They set the tone for relaxation. For those businesses with a little extra to spend and that want a timeless look, natural materials are a must.
- Vinyl – Despite being one of the least expensive signage materials, vinyl lobby signs are still able to produce a sophisticated appearance. We typically adhere vinyl to other materials when intricate graphics are needed.
