Lobby signs have extensive customization options because they can be any type of indoor signage. This means that materials, shape, size, color, and more can all be specifically chosen to match the building’s interior. Some of the options for sign materials include:
Each material offers many different benefits for a lobby sign, although all can create a professional and tasteful sign. Metal is particularly durable, acrylic is affordable, lightboxes can easily draw attention with illumination, and vinyl decals can provide creative and low profile signage. For each type of sign, we also offer dozens of customizations. Shapes, both on a large and small scale, can be cut using our CNC router or laser cutter, giving us the ability to create complex designs with sharp edges. Where applicable, we use Pantone color matching to create exact colors in graphics and materials like acrylic.
There are also several different finishing options available. Matte or glossy lamination (or brushed or polished for metal) can help create a unique look that can either stand out or blend in to match your design. We are also able to create gold leaf, or add features like chalk paint and whiteboard material for any handwritten areas. Entrance signs, directories, and number signs can be installed in any desired way.
For lighter signs, adhesive can attach them to doors and walls. Other signs can be mounted on walls, free standing, hung, and more. When you order your sign, we can discuss the intended location and choose an installation method that will best suit.

That will depend on the type of sign. Many materials are durable when used indoors, and wiping them down with a soft cloth is enough to keep them looking professional. A gentle soap can be used when needed. Metal signs will look best with regular polishing, and lightboxes can require occasional servicing to replace burnt out bulbs.
We can. Whether we made the original sign, we can create signs that match any others currently on your property.
On indoor walls and windows, vinyl decals will easily last for years as long as there is no moisture and the space is kept at a comfortable temperature.
Metal is a long lasting option that will stand up to wear and hard conditions, and is one of the options that can last outdoors. Acrylic and glass are durable as well, but can require more gentle handling.
We know that names and offices can change, so we can create a sign where names can easily be changed out without the need to create a new sign.
