Suite Signs

Affordable Acrylic Signs in Vancouver WA Brand Your Office!

By | Acrylic Signs, Lobby Signs, Suite Signs

If you’ve spent any amount of time in a nail salon, which some of us at Specialty Graphic Solutions may be guilty of, then you’ve likely heard of acrylic nails. Acrylics are used in a variety of industries because they are durable, versatile, and cost-effective. But, how can this material that’s also used for rear car light covers help your business? Well, you don’t need to be a nail salon owner to know that you can help consumers find your office and boost your brand awareness with acrylic signs in Vancouver, WA.

Help Your Suite Look Sweet with Clear Acrylic Panels

As the name might imply, clear acrylic panel signs are made with a transparent acrylic panel featuring graphics and text. For NorthWest Lifestyle Health, this meant printing out their logo on top-quality cast vinyl and applying it to the panel. This is all work we do in-house, and it’s one of our most affordable solutions because the materials are inexpensive and the process isn’t very labor intensive.

Spell It out with Acrylic Lettering

When most of us hear the word “letter,” we think of the standard A through Z with the letter elemenopee somewhere in there. In the signage industry, we like to bend the rules a little bit and include numbers, symbols, logos, and other characters in our loose definition of “letter.”

Consequently, we produce slick acrylic dimensional letter signs – like this one for Fiducial – that include a logo. Notice the glossy appearance. This is the standard with acrylic letters. However, if you’d like less of a glare, we can give the letters a matte finish. Quarter-inch-thick letters are also the standard, but acrylic letters can be up to half an inch thick. If you like your letters thicker than a shake with too little milk in it, consider acrylic laminate letters. These can be up to four inches thick!

Combine Lettering and Clear Panels

Vinyl isn’t the only material that can be applied to clear acrylic panels. You might consider adding acrylic letters to the face of your panel. We can then install the entire sign with spacers to create an added dimensional look as well as an elegant play of light and shadows. High-tech firms might consider installing backlit acrylic panel signs.

Layer Panels for a Dramatic Effect

Sometimes you don’t want to save the drama for your momma. Layered panels make it look like your sign is jumping out at viewers. Visitors probably won’t flinch when they see the sign, but it creates a dramatic effect nonetheless. For this suite sign we created for BnK Construction, we used frosted acrylic to make it look as if the acrylic panel is actually etched glass. No one has to know that the marker is actually a much more affordable alternative!

This is just a taste of what we can do with acrylic. If you’re looking for specific solutions for your enterprise, give us a ring. We probably won’t do your nails for you, but we’ll give you good ideas for making your brand stand out with acrylic lobby signs in Vancouver, WA.

Guide with Suite and Wayfinding Signs in Vancouver WA

By | Directory Signs, Suite Signs, Wayfinding Signs | No Comments

Filmed in part in Oregon, The Shining is considered by many to be one of the greatest horror movies ever made. In it, there’s a scene where Jack Nicholson’s character is running through a hedge maze with an ax trying to find his victims. Instead, he ends up getting lost. Spoiler alert! Sorry, we always say that at the wrong time.

Anyway, let’s pretend that the Nicholson character is your client, the hedge maze is your multi-tenant office complex, the ax is lots of money, and you are the “victim.” Does your building have the right suite and wayfinding signs to allow your client to hunt you down and swing the ax of giving you their business? If not, it might be time to install suite and wayfinding signs in Vancouver, WA. Fortunately, Specialty Graphic Solutions is one of the region’s top suppliers of these markers.

To Customize or Not to Customize

When most of us think of suite signs, we envision standard plastic or metal plaques that just have a room number. Property managers or building owners may require you to “take a walk on the mild side.” On the other hand, if you have a cool landlord, we suggest you try custom signs to give your professional office some flair and to help with your branding efforts.

We can work our personalized magic to incorporate company logos on room signs, use custom colors to match your other marketing materials, add Braille to any signs to keep you in compliance with the ADA, clearly identify restrooms and other amenities with images and text, and create precise designs that follow the terms of your lease.

We Have the Right Materials for the Job

There are virtually endless possibilities when it comes to suite and wayfinding signs. We’ve been known to use materials like PVC, wood, aluminum, HDU, and acrylic when fabricating suite signs. The main guide we use in picking the right materials for your project is the image your organization is trying to project. For instance, if you specialize in natural products, such as hedge mazes, you might consider signs that incorporate wood or stone.

Interior Office Sign Options

Make your building more inviting with these markers:

  • Room Signs – Most facilities are required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to have signs for rooms that serve a permanent purpose, like cafeterias, meeting rooms, and restrooms.
  • Wayfinding Markers – Unless your business is located in a standalone closet, your building can benefit from wayfinding signage. Directional arrows can point the way to various amenities, while directories near your entrance tell guests where all of the businesses and departments in your venue are located.
  • Suite Signs – Suite signs are a must to help visitors find their way around your building when you manage a complex with several tenants.

Don’t let your customers metaphorically freeze to death in the corridors of your facility as they search for your suite! Show them the way with suite and wayfinding signs in Vancouver, WA! For a free consultation, contact the mighty sign makers at SGS today!

Making Suite Signs in Vancouver WA Attractive!

By | Suite Signs, Wayfinding Signs | No Comments

You’re likely quite aware of how difficult it can be to direct clients to your office if you’re located in a large complex that doesn’t have adequate signage. And, are your employees constantly getting lost because your meeting rooms don’t have any identifying markings? Fortunately, SGS has suite signs in Vancouver, WA to help everyone in your venue and to avoid missed appointments and general confusion.

Standard and Custom Suite Signs

The Great Bard once wrote: “Would a sign by any other name smell so suite?” He was clearly foreshadowing the excellent suite signs produced by the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions.

When you envision suite signs, you may think of standard plastic or metal plaques that just feature a room number. These kinds of signs are usually required by property managers and building owners. Yet, we recommend making your suite signs a little sweeter. With custom signs, you give your professional office pieces of flair while aiding your branding efforts.

To toot our own horn, we can do it all. Our friendly experts can include your business’s logo on suite signs, use custom colors to match your branding, add braille to any signage, clearly label restrooms and other amenities with images and text, and create precise designs that follow the rules of your venue.

We Make Signs out of ANYTHING

Our mighty sign makers have mad skills. They can make signs out of anything. Metal? Of course. Wood? No problem! Cheese? Well, maybe, we’ve never tried, but we’ll give it a shot if that’s what you need! There are virtually limitless possibilities when it comes to suite signs. In addition to wood and metal, PVC, high-density urethane, and acrylic are popular materials. The main guide in picking materials will be the image you want to project.

The Pacific Northwest loves its natural products. Holistic healing providers, massage therapists, and any organization that specializes in natural services or products should consider using wood or stone for their suite signs. For the more tech-savvy enterprises out there, acrylic signs are a better option. On the other hand, law practices, accounting firms, and financial institutions typically benefit most from aluminum signs that exude longevity and professionalism.

How Are Suite Signs Used?

You can use suite signs however you want. We’d be the last ones to block your creative juices. To get those juices flowing, here are some ways suite signs are used:

  • Employee Nameplates – If you have offices within your unit, you can use suite signs to identify who’s in each office. We have solutions that can be updated easily as employees come and go.
  • Listing Providers – If you have multiple doctors or dentists within one practice, you can let patients know they’ve found the right place by listing your providers on your suite sign.
  • Announcing Your Business’s Presence – Simply putting your enterprise’s logo on your suite signs will make it clear that visitors have found the right place. And, you’ll build your brand awareness.
