Interior Building Signs 

Want to ensure your customers are informed or able to navigate your facility? Wayfinding signage is a key component for making good impressions on prospective clients. Chicago’s major universities and healthcare campuses present rather challenging situations to new visitors. A lack of information can make visits rather complex and stressful. Wayfinding systems elevate stress and confusion with easy-to-follow signage systems. In addition to physical signs and text, many institutions and businesses are also implementing non-text systems that are based on colors and symbols. If you’ve ever been to the Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago you’ll notice each floor is categorized by a unique color and type of animal. This system of symbols and photos is entertaining for the patients and appreciated by the families who are often present for extended stays. 


Another popular form of interior building signage is widow graphics. Large office complexes often include several suites or departments. Placed at entry ways or on glass doors window graphics frosted glass (or dusted crystal) can create privacy and an elegant look your employees and customers will appreciate.  Window graphics are available in a plethora of materials and can be sized to the exact dimensions of your existing panes. Best of all, these solutions are cost effective and easy to install. 


There’s no time like the present to reinvent your company’s image or educate customers about your latest service offerings.  Our customers appreciate our wide variety of cost effective building sign options that are equally unique as they are impactful.
