Good Office Signs for your facility are a must have these days! Good signage contributes to the overall branding of your office. First of all strong branding shows professionalism and is important for your existing customers as well as your potential customers. Another benefit of good office signage is for your employees. It’s proven that good branding motivates employees, to be part of an established company.
Office Signs can be implemented in different ways, areas and budgets. Therefore let’s have a look at different types of Office Signs and their benefits.
Lobby & Reception Signs
This is by far the most popular type of Office Sign due to the fact that it’s a real eye catcher upon arrival in the office. A Lobby Sign is usually displayed above the reception desk or in the waiting room. Another good location for a lobby sign is in your conference room, that is to say if you have one. Out of all office signs, a lobby sign is the most diverse in cost. If you are looking to make an impact but have a low budget, a simple acrylic panel with graphics can be a great option. Although, if you are considering a more high end product, the options are endless. We can design lobby signs with different type of materials for a more exclusive look, or even include illumination. Our Gallery has a good selection of lobby signs for your inspiration.
In order to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, all your rooms need to have an ADA Sign. For instance think about offices, conference rooms, restrooms, waiting rooms, staff rooms and so on. ADA Signs can be designed based on your company branding, while at the same time comply with the regulations. If you would like to learn more about a well designed & installed ADA sign, read our recent post here.
Directional Signs come into place into larger office facilities. If you are expecting a large amount of visitors on a daily basis, they come in handy, but otherwise your employees can benefit from good directional signage too. Good Directional Signs showcase that a company cares and contributes to it’s hospitality. In other words, Directional Signs have multiple benefits for your company, customers and employees.

When opening a new restaurant, marketing and signage is important. There are a variety of signage options that restaurants use to make their interior/exterior eye-catching and attractive. Here are some helpful tips to maximize the impact of your restaurant signage.
Exterior Restaurant Signage
Restaurant signs should stand tall and get noticed so they can be spotted by all those who pass by. If you want your business to really stand out, investing in Channel Letters will make a lasting impression on anybody who passes by. A channel letter is a custom-made, 3-dimensional letter sign fabricated from sheet metal (usually aluminum or plastic). They can remain unlit or they can be illuminated so that marketing doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down. As a result, illuminated channel letters will help your business be seen and noticed even when it’s dark out.
Utilize your Store Front Windows, and Interior Walls
Utilize your store front windows and doors and your interior walls with vinyl decals and graphics! Made from adhesive vinyl, decals make displaying restaurant hours, promotions, logos and food photography a piece of cake! Furthermore, there are many options of vinyl that you can use to be creative with your window or wall graphics. You can use clear decals, perforated window film, static clings and more!
Show Off your Menu
Show your customers why they should eat at your restaurant by displaying a clean and attractive menu on your walls! These menu signs should display your current menu while promoting your restaurant brand. They can be made from several different materials, but one of our most popular signs are made from aluminum with a printed vinyl overlay.

Once upon a time your average storefront window graphic was literally painted in place, a lengthy process undertaken by a shopkeeper who knew that eventually he or she would need to scrape the paint back off with a putty knife, careful not to damage the glass underneath. Today, thankfully, vinyl decal window graphics are a far more professional affair and a standby for modern storefront advertising. Here are a few reasons why you should give them a look yourself:
They are Inexpensive
Along with the various other signs, banners, and monuments your company relies on, window decals are yet another way to share information with your customers as they walk or drive by. And, square-foot for square foot, they are VASTLY cheaper to produce than permanent signage.
They Utilize a Great Location
Remember: a blank glass window doesn’t tell your potential customers much about your business, products, or what you can offer them. Instead, take advantage of your windows! Not only are windows often located at eye level, they are smooth, transparent, and naturally attract window-lookers. This makes them the perfect location for all kinds of signage. And because storefronts usually feature so much glass, you may have the added advantage of being able to put up signage big enough to be clearly visible at a great distance.
They Can Be Temporary
When you advertise a promotion or special event you likely use newspaper ads, social media, and maybe giveaway coupons. However, it may be helpful to combine these ephemera with something more physical, and window advertisements are the perfect solution. Window decals are a cheap, affordable way to put up temporary advertisements at your location to pull customers in in support of these other methods.
They Typically Don’t Count Towards Sign Footage Limits
Most cities or commercial areas regulate the amount of signage a business can have and where that signage can be placed. Ignore these limits and you can face substantial fines and the added cost of removing the offending permanent signage. Windows, however, are generally unregulated, allowing you to expand your advertising space and promote temporary events and specials without violating local regulations.
Sunshades and Privacy
Outside of advertising uses, window decals can be useful to block sunlight and increase the amount of privacy available to your staff or customers without completely blocking your windows or eliminating your visibility. You can also request window graphics specifically deigned to be transparent to those inside the building looking out, and opaque to those outside looking in.
They can be Extremely Colorful and Visually Attractive
Human beings are attracted to bright colors and, when you’re out to connect with drivers or passing pedestrians, attractive signage makes a big difference. Increase your brand exposure and make an impact with a design that features high definition, brightly printed graphics and large, clear text for maximum visibility.

A blank canvas is an exciting gateway to an endless world of artistic possibilities. The same goes for a blank wall in your office or front windows. That’s why you need to take a look at the outstanding custom wall graphics available from Sequoia Signs & Graphics, Inc.!
What is a Wall Graphic?
A wall graphic, which may also be called a wall mural, mural sign, wall tattoo, or wall decal, is essentially a thin vinyl print carefully affixed to the wall, either for decoration or sometimes for direction or inspiration. The vinyl is precisely cut, vibrantly printed, and should be carefully and precisely installed to avoid air bubbles for a flat, ‘tattooed’ look. The decals can also be applied to windows or glass dividers if preferred.
What Makes A Wall Graphic A Good Option for a Businesses?
Wall graphics are great for a few reasons. Not only are they vibrantly colored and resist fading, but they can be custom produced to any size and any design, allowing businesses to cover entire walls or simply add a bit of flair to a blank space. They are usually cheaper than artwork of comparable size and can be installed and removed with absolutely no damage to the wall beneath.
This fast, clean install and removal process makes decals great as temporary solutions to advertise or promote upcoming events or seasonal programs. Use one in the back office for decoration or order a wide variety for the front windows to keep your storefront decorations and advertising fresh and current.
What Options are Available?
That’s the great thing about wall graphics—you can pretty much do anything you want! Some common options that we see a lot of include:
Full color company logos scaled up to fit a large space
Hours of operation for the storefront or front desk
Important directions for visitors / customers – especially as a custom graphic looks more permanent and professional compared to printer paper signs.
Company mottos or inspirational quotes in a decorative font
Decorative company crests
Full size wall decals of company products or nature scenes
Other decorative designs used in place of wall art
Is it Affordable?
Absolutely! Printing vinyl is a very affordable process, allowing countless companies to invest in great-looking custom designs without stressing their budgets. The exact cost depends on the colors, complexity, and size of the design, but free estimates and quotes are always available on request.
