Take a look around your office, what do you see? Step outside yourself and really look close. Is it an inviting space or is it cold and bare? The signage displayed in and around your offices can affect not only your employee morale but also client perception. If you’re a customer-oriented business, your interior office signage is your first chance to make a great impression. Make sure your office signs convey the message and atmosphere you want customers and prospects to experience when they walk into your business.

Cleveland Office Signs

What is the first thing you see when you enter your office lobby or reception area? What does the lobby area convey to potential clients? If your reception area is lacking signage or is composed of bare, white walls, it’s time to re-evaluate your lobby office area and make it stand out and feel inviting for all who enter.

Cleveland attorneys and counselors at law, Koblentz & Penvose, LLC recently contacted us to help revamp their reception and office areas. To really make an impact, Koblentz & Penvose chose to use dimensional wall lettering that literally pops!

Fabricated with one-inch thick hard foam lettering and a custom paint color, Koblentz & Penvose chose a design and material that looks durable and heavy but is actually light and easy to handle. Comprised of GemLeaf, the letters are laser cut to create an ultra-clean design, and feature a thin metal laminate that produces a high-quality effect to the finish -- you’d never know that these letters are ultralight!

Measuring twelve-inches tall, Koblentz & Penvose’s office signs were applied by flush mounting them flat, directly to the drywall with strong double stick tape and secured with stud mounts. Gemini letters come with a lifetime warranty if the material should ever fail and are ideal for interior business signs. The entryway to this law office now stands out from the rest!

If you’re looking to update your business space, consider creating custom interior signs to incorporate throughout. Not only will it breathe new life into your existing space, it can inspire employees and leave a positive, lasting impression upon clients. Call today for a consultation to design the perfect look for your office.

It’s always interesting to see how much time, effort and creativity my customers put into marketing their businesses. All business owners know that marketing is the lifeblood of their companies whether they own or manage auto dealerships, property management firms, health care offices, barber shops, boutiques or completely different Cleveland-area businesses.

The problem – even the savviest Cleveland business owners often miss one of the most obvious marketing opportunities available. Indoor signage.

It’s easy to forget that your office signs reinforces all of the marketing and branding you spend many hours and dollars to develop.

As a business owner myself I understand how vital it is to analyze your marketing. Your investment in top-flight advertisements, promotions and branding are wasted if your business doesn’t live up to the initial promises.

That’s why we spend the time talking to our customers, sketching out ideas and ensuring that office signs we design and fabricate for them not only matches their marketing and branding but also enhances their image.

Think of the different businesses you frequent.

When you enter a doctor’s office you don’t expect – and probably don’t want – to see signs with neon, bold colors or unusual fonts. You want to see sophisticate, classic lettering and logos behind the reception desk and throughout the offices. You may see 3d lettering perhaps done in a brush satin aluminum finish.

You probably also want to see other interior enhancements – perhaps such as frosted windows – that ensure privacy.

But if you saw classic, understated or old pictures at a hot new boutique, you’d be disappointed. That’s where you want to see trendy new wall signs. It indicates that the boutique and hair designer understands and embraces the latest trends. We can design custom signs made with various metals and acrylics.

You spend more than $4,000 each time you hire a new employee and it takes on average 42 days to fill a position, according to the Society of Human Resources Managers (SHRM).

And that’s just the start. If an employee at your Cleveland-area office earning $40,000 each year leaves, you can expect to pay $20,000-$30,000 in recruitment and training costs.

Clearly it’s in your best interest to keep productive employees happy.

Recruiters will tell you small celebrations – such as taking a photo of the employee on the first day – is one way to motivate employees to stay. Want to know another to way to provide a boost? Individual office signs – the ones that tell those that visit a certain office the name of the occupant – may be one of the best motivators you can offer.

The signs are budget friendly and add an extra bit of style to your office. And you can even add a bit of whimsy – engravings, a specific font or color – to each.

How To Add An Interior Business Sign To Your Lobby!

Posted by John Grigoli

Nov 18, 2016 8:30:00 AM

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 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!


Custom Wall Sign

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. 

If you need help deciphering the variables, do not hesitate to call Epic Signs & Graphics for help. We can survey your office space for sign opportunities, and create a design that will utilize the materials to best fit your budget. We provide free consultations on site or in our office and explain the materials available, the types of sign fabrication we can provide and all the other variables such as color, size, and routing or engraving possibilities.
