Types of Indoor Signage
Reception areas are where signage can impress visitors and potential customers up close and personal. That lobby sign positioned above or near the receptionist’s desk conveys the purpose of the company or organization and show its professionalism.
Signage must be styled to match the organization’s specialization, products and services as well. All of these reinforce each other and represent the totality of the brand.
Lobby signs can be sleek and metallic or made with glass and synthetic materials, projecting that modern look for newer organizations. Establishments with history can go for dimensional signage with a classical look. If the area has subdued lighting, then the letters or logo can be illuminated to make it stand out even more.
Directory signs help people find their destination upon entering your building.
Directory Signs, Nameplates
These signs help guide people to where they need to go. So they must be functional and consistent, in the case of property managers accommodating multiple tenants, as well as offices where rooms have specific purposes. The signage must reflect the nature of the shared venue. At the same time, they can be subtly distinct.
For example, plaques might feature each tenant’s unique logo, but the general design elements and the plaques’ frames can be uniform. Additional features like braille can also make these accessible for those with special needs.
Cafe and Restaurant Signage
The indoor signage needs of bars, cafes and restaurants are considerably less formal in style than that of corporate offices. Yet the craftwork and detail that goes into them is on par, of course. Establishments can come in a wide range of “moods,” from family friendly diners to coffee shops and restaurants with high end cuisine, and the signs used must convey this. They must also display information, such as menus to promos.

If an establishment already has a centerpiece indoor sign, then wall graphics can serve as a complement and add to the overall aesthetic and brand identity. This type of sign can also stand on its own, while being lighter and easier to manufacture and other more “solid” signage. That’s the magic of vinyl graphics; they can just be placed on a surface like stickers.

Indoor Signs for Retail
Got sales or promos? Seasonal specials? Highlighting a new product or celebrating an anniversary? Vinyl banners and acrylic boards are great, lightweight sign options for boutiques, shops and restaurants. These spread the information around, get people talking, and turn them into customers.
Other types of indoor signs, like window graphics and wall art, can add to the establishment’s aesthetics while boosting products and services. If a place is visually interactive and nice to be in then people will definitely come back!
