4 Things to consider before purchasing a reception sign


lobby sign

So what does make a good reception sign?  Its a great question but not one that is easily answered.

One thing I can tell you upfront is that buying an expensive lobby sign does not ensure that you will get one that meets your needs.  The single most important consideration is the image you want to present to your clients.

The example above is a simple, clean and inexpensive reception sign that represents the owner's  business well.  It is made from sign foam that is painted with a matte finish and is well suited to a casual environment like a bicycle retailer.

Most businesses come to us with an existing branding that includes a logo.  The question then becomes what is the best way to build a sign.  We look at a number of factors including:


There's no point in designing a solid aluminum sign if its outside of your budget.  Let us know up front what you budget is and we will work to find the best solution with encouraging you to spend more than planned.


What type of image are you trying to portray?  When we design your reception sign, we want to ensure if fits your company's image.  For example, a downtown law firm would likely be cultivating a different image than a one man firm in the suburbs.


Where will the sign be located in the office.  The wall size and location can greatly impact the ultimate solution.  I have seen clients that want glass lobby signs but have a wall that gets direct sunlight. The result would be less than ideal with both glare and shadowing taking away from the ultimate result.


The final piece of the puzzle pulls together the previous 3 considerations. Once we understand your budget, the image you want to portray and the location of the sign, we can choose the best materials to bring your lobby sign to life.
