Interior architectural signage is a key component to any successful business. From the informative lobby directory to the more personal desk plaque, these signs can offer direction, information, and even advertisement for the company’s product or service.
As do exterior signs, those found on the inside of a business represent your company. They continuously demonstrate the quality of service and products that the business provides. If your signs are faded and shabby (except nostalgic signs, of course), or have poor quality graphics, your customers will immediately think that your lack of attention to details reflects your level of service or the quality of your products. Interior architectural signage that has been designed with the utmost precision will not only fulfill a communicative need, but positively contribute to the company’s success as a whole. Additionally, they can assist in the efficiency and performance of company employees.
When considering purchasing new signs for your company, design is extremely important. The final products should give off a professional, yet comfortable feel to those that use them. They are available in a variety of styles, colors, and materials that will suit the purpose, location and existing décor. They can be made out of numerous materials, such as aluminum, acrylic, stainless steel, wood, metal, and laminates. Custom acrylic fabrication is available both for large architectural signs, as well as retail displays.
Materials that tend to be fade resistant should be used in any location with direct sunlight in order to minimize the need for costly replacements. The result you hope to achieve with interior signage can very well determine the specific materials you choose. Of course, any lettering used must be simple and easy to read. Today’s advanced computer technology, along with an experienced sign company, can assist you in the intimidating design process, guaranteeing a superb final result.
While there are not many regulations regarding the interior architectural signage you place in and around your business, those set forth under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) are critical to the final product you choose. ADA signage must meet standards to ensure that people of all limitations will be safely accommodated in all public settings. These include, but are not limited to, the use of non-glare materials, a high contrast between the background and the lettering or graphics used, and the inclusion of Braille and other tactile characters. All postings, both inside and out, must be in compliance with ADA regulations at all times. Therefore it is important to keep informed of any updates to the legal standards as they occur.
The installation process of interior architectural signage can be a project in itself. When ordering interior signage, it is crucial to choose a system that can be installed, moved, and updated if necessary without too much difficulty. It can be quite costly for replacements as needs and surroundings change. The location they are mounted on must be visible, as well as suitable for their use. A sign company that focuses solely on signage will be able to help you with your sign all the way from design to installation services.
