Custom Business Lobby Signs
Make a great first impression when clients enter your office reception area
Blue Chip SignWorks specializes in designing, producing and installing lobby signs and reception signs. A business logo sign is used to artistically showcase your brand and logo for clients and employees. It is probably the first thing clients see when they enter your office, it makes your first impression. This sign should be your signature and show your pride in your brand. It conveys information about your brand, style and business values. The placement, size, materials, colors, lighting and design elements you choose all contribute to the message delivered. This is your best opportunity to display your brand in a carefully arranged environment, by highlighting selected elements.
A well designed Lobby Sign impacts your client on both a conscious and sub-conscious level. The pride you have in your brand is evident. By artistically aligning all aspects of design and installation, the mood and attitude of your firm comes through clearly. To get the most value from your sign, consider the following design aspects.
Placement: Since the days of the early Chinese, the Feng shui of placement has always been a big deal. Carefully consider the placement of the sign relative to the wall (central, offset L/R, offset Up/Down), to the entrance doors, to the center of the room and to other features nearby impacts the perception of the message.
Background: It is important to assess the texture, colors and lighting of the reception area where the sign will be placed before beginning the design. It is vital to understand how the lighting changes throughout the day, whether from natural or artificial sources, as light affects the impact of color, materials used and placement.
Size and Shape: A statement sign like this should be sized to make the right impression. A big, bold, rectangular portrait shaped sign and an elongated oval sign say very different things about your company.
Materials: There are a wide variety of materials such as wood, brushed metals like aluminum, clear and colored acrylics and formed plastics we can use alone or in combination in the design and production of the sign. Selection of materials and how they are used in the sign make a difference. Solid, bright, confident metallic makes a different first impression than a clear acrylic with black and white lettering.
Colors: Colors convey mood and attitude. From Cool Blues to Exciting Reds, your choice of colors for logos, text and background tells a story about the attitudes and values within your company. Do you want to learn more about the symbolism of color?
Mounting and Lighting: Is the sign LED illuminated? Direct or Halo Lit? or Both? Is it mounted with tape and glue or does it use decorative polished standoff? All are factors to be considered.
Cost: How much can you expect to pay for a well designed, high quality reception sign, installed by sign experts? For a good quality, professional, acrylic lobby sign with polished edges, $400 to $900 is a reasonable range. From there, you can go all the way up to a stunning brushed aluminum cabinet sign, with push-through vinyl-faced, 3D acrylic logo, illuminated and halo-lit with LED lighting. To get a sign like this installed, expect to invest over $2000. Every company is different. Every need is unique. Every budget can be accommodated. To us, every client and every project are totally custom. That is why we love this kind of sign.
