Interior Sign Types and where to use them

There are so many options available to businesses when it comes to interior signs. It can be overwhelming figuring out where you need signs, what style they should be, and what information they need to convey. 

If you are rebranding or renovating your commercial space, this guide will help you decide which types of interior signs you need for your premises.  

Wayfinding Signs

This is the most common type of interior sign in public buildings. You’ll see wayfinding signs in shopping centres, office buildings, hotels, supermarkets, hospitals and more. 

The purpose of wayfinding signs is to direct people so they know where to go. If there is more than one room or floor in a building, you’ll need wayfinding signs.

Perhaps you need to direct people to a conference room or a waiting room. Or maybe you need a full list of what can be found on which floor of a building. 

Wayfinding signs should be incorporated into any building that visitors or staff use, and they should always be inclusive of different abilities. 

Lobby Signs

A lobby sign welcomes guests when they enter the premises. Although this doesn’t serve a practical purpose, it’s important to make a good first impression and make your brand look professional. It also reassures your visitors that they are in the right place. 

Your lobby sign might be your business name or logo, as well as a short welcome message. Make this sign bold and clear for the best impact.  

Banners and Posters

If you run limited sales, promotions, or deals, custom banners and posters are the perfect solution. They are inexpensive, easy to swap out, and give visitors an idea of what they can expect from you.

Having banners and posters customised to match your brand aesthetics is a great way to make your store or business look professional. 

Digital Displays

Digital LED displays are becoming increasingly popular in businesses of all types. They capture attention much easier than regular signage and can communicate a lot more information quickly and effectively. 

If your customers have to queue or wait in a waiting area, digital signage is a great distraction that keeps customers happy for much longer than usual. 

Wall and Floor Graphics

Not all signs need to be practical. In fact, wall and floor graphics are just a great way to make your brand stand out and make your business more inviting. 

Whether you invest in a full wall mural or just a couple of graphics throughout your space, it’s a great way to reinforce your brand and give your customers a fun experience.
