When you have decided to get a lobby sign installed in your office waiting area, how do you decide what to get or who to call? If you do a little internet searching of all the images available to see, the results will produce really cool ideas for sure. The next question becomes...how much? That is a good question, because the person designing a sign idea for you needs to know your price range so he/she can determine what materials to use while considering other factors,,,,,read on to learn more!
What will the logo design and the slogan allow you to do with a sign?
Some times this could be a dilemma if the overall logo shape is different than the shape available for a wall sign. If the available space is 2 feet wide and 4 feet high, and the logo is more of a 4 feet wide x 2 feet high, what can you do about that? Short answer is...that depends. It will depend on the make up of the art if it can be modified or if the sign could be in such a way to use dimensional space like with thick letters. Art design matters and often times needs to be resized or even reworked so that it is usable for a sign situation.
How much can I reasonably spend?
As mentioned earlier, price will determine types of materials and how it can be constructed or if lights should be involved. A low side budget number may involve a panel sign with cut vinyl graphics applied with the panel mounted flat with decorative screws. A middle range business sign may involve dimensional letters and offsets for the panel so it is 1/2" to 1" off the wall. A high end office sign could have routed acrylics pushed through the sign face with LED lights inside to illuminate the letters with a nice glow. Price matters.
The above factors, design and price, will determine the type of interior business sign that will be installed in your office waiting area. Doing nothing really is not an option however, because when people visit they notice office signage when they walk in. It will make a statement about your organization.
