What Are Lobby Signs?
Wayfinding signs are a simple, easy way for people to figure out where things are in a building. The entire process of navigating an indoor area is facilitated with these signs, from directory signs the moment you enter, to arrow signs guiding you along your path, to office door number signs or bathroom signs at your destination.
Lobby signs notify people of where they are in a building and give directions that help them get to their destination.
It’s easy to get lost in a large building. Those that need to find their way to a specific location instinctually depend on wayfinding signs the moment they enter a building, and these signs quickly become recognizable symbols for those that need help with direction.
What Are The Types Of Wayfinding Signs We Offer?
Signs NYC is the leading provider of all types of lobby signs and wayfinding signs. Our customized navigation signs are of the highest quality and we offer every type of lobby sign you could need, including original custom creations matching your brand or the office interiors. Some of the most popular types of wayfinding signs we offer include:
These are larger signs with an overview of where people can find anything located in the building, floor by floor. They also help people determine where they are in relation to everything else, often with a small “You Are Here” dot or star graphic, so that they can better find their way to their destination.
Floor & Department Signs
If you’re in a large, more complexly-laid out building, you’ll need signs similar to the lobby directories on each floor to direct people to the specific department they’re looking for. You’ll also need identification signs outside the entrance to each department to let people know they’re in the right place.
Arrows & Directions
These small and simple directional signs are probably the most common wayfinding signs. These point people where they need to go as they’re going there, sometimes with just an arrow graphic, and sometimes an arrow with a few words, like “This Way To ER.”
Name Plates & Room Numbers
These are used frequently in office buildings to differentiate between individuals’ offices or find the right meeting room on different floors. Signs NYC has made these signs in color or monochrome, with and without graphics or a company logo.
Bathrooms & Exits
These signs can be found in nearly every type of building. All of them have similar graphics to let people know at-a-glance what it’s indicating, but we provide different colors and styles to best suit your building’s needs.
The larger the building, the greater the number and variety of these signs are needed to help people know where they are. Office buildings, hospitals, airports, hotels, malls, and more all use lots of different wayfinding signs, but even if you have a smaller building, you’ll still at least need signs to mark where the bathroom and emergency exits.
The most professional lobby signs should represent your brand while also complementing the interior décor. Wayfinding signs can be easily customized in terms of material, fabrication, size, shape, color, and more. This is possible because of the vast range of materials from which they can be produced.
