Interior Office SignsHaving office signs made for your building is a task that should be done with careful consideration mainly because these signs serve numerous important functions. Aside from showing people where to go, where they are and what not to do, these signs also show them who and what is in the building, what your business is all about and so on. These signs also need to comply with certain laws and regulations, which is why putting these together requires careful planning and thought.

When it comes to your interior office signs, you should know that you have quite a number of options to choose from. The options you have to consider include the following:

  • Color Options - Since most interior office signs need to follow ADA rules, your color options may seem limited. It is not. You simply need to have signs created with the prescribed 70% color contrast that can have you employing either dark text on a lighter background or light text on a darker background. Since this can easily mean any contrasting light and dark shade, you have quite a number of options open for choice.
  • Non-glare Finish – Your signs need to have a finish that does not reflect light. This is to make your signs easy to read. Having a glossy finish on signs, even when these are indoors, often makes them reflect light which can shine into the eyes of the person viewing the sign. This, in effect, makes the sign difficult to read.
  • Materials Used – When it comes to the materials you can use for your interior office signs, since these are not exposed to the weather, you can opt for less resilient and cheaper options. You will still have to consider the environment these signs will be posted in. For example, if these signs are to be posted in schools where vandalism may be a problem, you might want to employ materials that are scratch and vandal proof. You might also need to consider the architecture of your building and have the materials of your signs blend well with your other décor.
  • Fonts and Letter Sizes – As with the other aforementioned options, these signs have to conform to ADA standards, which means you will need to choose fonts that are within regulations. The fonts you can use are those that are easy to read either with the fingertips or from a distance. The fonts you can use should not be fancy, italicized or in script. These also need to be sans serif or simple serif. As for the sizes, the letters have to conform to certain measurement ratios, as can be read in this previous post.
