Two Tier Lobby Directory Sign in Vancouver Stands Out for Markee Valuations!

By | Directional Signs, Directory Signs, Lobby Signs

Have you ever had an appointment in a multi-tenant building that had no system for identifying each suite? Did you end up having to open every door in the building to ask, “Are you the one I’m looking for?” Conversely, is your enterprise located in a building where strangers are constantly walking in, interrupting your meetings, and asking, “Are you the one I’m looking for?”

Markee Valuations wanted to remove the possibility for this level of confusion in their facility, so they contacted Specialty Graphic Solutions for office directory signs in Vancouver, WA.

Markee Valuations and the Funky Bunch

No, Markee Valuations isn’t part of a 90s hip-hop group. They are the brainchild of Laure Markee, a business appraiser and financial damages expert. From their location on West 12th Street in downtown Vancouver, they offer a plethora of valuable services to area businesses. Basically, they help companies figure out how much they’re worth.

When an organization that does so much for the business community came to us for two-tier lobby directory signs in Vancouver, WA, we couldn’t wait to help out. This wasn’t our first time working with Markee. Last year, we refurbished a pole sign for them. This project was a bit different. Markee owns their building, but it’s kind of big for their needs, so they lease out unused space to other tenants. They needed a marker with an upscale look but that would be relatively easy to change as tenants moved in and out. We had just the solution.

How We Helped Markee

Designing the new sign was the first step. For this, Markee worked with their favorite design firm, Reed Creative. As luck would have it, they are one of our favorite design firms as well! We worked directly with Lori Reed by giving her some ideas on materials and mounting hardware so she could better visualize a design for the perfect marker for Markee Valuations.

Once we had a design that all parties were happy with, we began fabricating the sign. The two-tier system consisted of a back panel of 3/16” thick black acrylic with a brushed copper laminate metal face. The six front panels were made of 1/8” thick clear acrylic. Black brass standoff mounting hardware was utilized to set the back panel away from the wall and to set the clear panels another 1/2” off from the copper faced backer.

With this system, tenant updates will be simple. SGS just unscrews the standoff caps on each side of the panel that needs to be changed and removes the panel from the sign. Next, we remove the black cut vinyl graphics and add new vinyl lettering for the new tenant. Lastly, we pop it back into place on the sign. Easy peasy!

In the end, Markee Valuations was completely satisfied with their convenient new lobby sign.

People Have to Park, So Why Not Direct Them with Signs?

By | Directional Signs, Parking Signs

Hilariously terrible parking jobs are enjoyable to gawk at, but they can be quite angering if you happen to be looking for a parking spot or want to access a building. For instance, cars parked on sidewalks can make it hard for wheelchair-bound visitors to get around. Or, a truck in a fire lane could make it difficult for emergency personnel to get into your venue quickly.

You could hire a person to direct traffic in your parking lot. Or, you could write passive aggressive notes and place them on all of the vehicles that haven’t parked according to some unwritten guidelines. However, we thinking the easiest solution is to just call in the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions for parking signs in Vancouver, WA.

You Gotta Have Proper Signage

Clients and other guests may not have the best opinion of your organization if they can’t find parking or have trouble making their way around your campus. In fact, the spots you have reserved for customers can have a direct impact on your business’s earnings. If there’s no parking, shoppers may look elsewhere. No one wants to spend their day driving around a parking lot looking for a spot.

On the other hand, you can set yourself apart from your competitors with custom parking lot signs featuring your full-color logo, company name, and other branding. If you want to be really clever, you can even set up a series of “More Parking This Way” signs leading from your competitor’s parking lot to your own. If anyone asks, though, you didn’t hear about this hack from us.

Keep It Legal

Your parking area must be accessible for people of all abilities according to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This is where ADA signs come in handy. They’re typically required for directing visitors to ADA accessible entrances. Plus, you can point out the spots reserved for handicapped parking. Additionally, who doesn’t appreciate clearly-labelled, professional signage that leads the way to restrooms, assistance, entrances, and information?

Other Parking Lot Options

Listen, you look like a good, honest person. We’ll let you know about some of the parking lot signs you might consider:

Fire Lane Signs – With fire lane and no parking signs, you can keep areas clear for rescue workers. This could save your life someday.

Worker, Visitor, and General Parking – If you run a retail store, you want your customers to have the best parking. Signs can make it easy for people of all stars and stripes to know where to park.

Loading Dock and Delivery Signs – You probably don’t want a giant semi blocking your building and clogging up your parking lot. Tell delivery drivers where to go with the appropriate markers.

Small Directional Signs – A couple words and an arrow on a small sign is about all you need to help people get around your property more smoothly.
