What size logo do I need for my reception sign?

reception sign

When we talk about the size of your reception sign we also mean the text.  In the image above, that would include the "logo" as well as the text that makes up the company name.  

A typical rule of thumb says that the reception sign should be roughly 2/3 of the width of the wall it's being mounted on. Small walls such as the one above or very large walls are obvious exceptions.  Your objective should be to ensure that your reception sign does not overpower the wall or by contract looked dwarfed by a very large wall.

Lets say you would say you want your reception sign 4 feet long, 6 feet long, etc. Take a  measuring tape and some masking tape into the reception area or wall, and mask out the area where you are considering putting the sign. 

Look at the area from outside the office's main entrance and from as many angles as possible.  Does it seem too big?  Too small? Just right?  Unfortunately there is no hard and fast rule.  We can give you guidance but everyone's taste is a little different.

One way to think of it is to consider your reception sign as a painting and the wall as the canvas.  When a painting is framed, the frame itself helps to highlight the artwork.  The same is true with your reception sign.
