Fantastic-Looking “Legal Eagle” Lobby Sign for Local Law Firm!

By | Lobby Signs | No Comments

When visitors enter the lobby of your business, is there any way for them to tell that they’re in the right place? Or, are they forced to ask your already-swamped receptionist? And, while we’re asking questions: would consumers recognize your logo if they saw it in a lineup? If you aren’t welcoming clients with a lobby sign, you’re missing a great branding opportunity. Angus Lee Law Firm recognized this, so they contacted the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions for lobby signs for attorneys in Vancouver, WA.

Angus Lee Law Firm’s Expertise

Located in Vancouver and defending cases throughout Washington, Angus Lee Law Firm, PLLC is the law practice of Angus and Jennifer Lee. They’ve served as lead counsel in criminal cases ranging from DUIs to homicides. And, they’ve argued cases before the Washington Court of Appeals as well as the Supreme Court for the state. They also believe in giving back to the community along with our nation: both have served in the United States Marine Corps.

When such upstanding members of our area came to us for a lobby sign for their law firm in Vancouver, WA, we’d have to plead insanity to pass up the chance to help out. Angus’s new location had plain white walls in the reception area leading to his office. The first step was to for us to listen to his vision and goals. He had the following criteria:

  • The sign must look professional to reflect the professionalism of the firm
  • They wanted a dimensional sign – not a flat panel
  • It must incorporate the firm’s existing red and gold logo
  • Oh yeah, and they needed it completed – designed, produced, and installed – within nine business days!

With these types of signs, we don’t generally have such a short turnaround, but we can always do our best to make special accommodations for clients who need a project completed quickly.

We Admit to the Allegations that We Created an Outstanding Lobby Sign

We were on the clock, so we had to get down to work right away. To create the dimensional look, we took a two-tiered approach. For the first level, we used 3mm brushed gold Alupanel aluminum composite sign material to portray the rich metallic appearance of the firm’s red and gold logo. For the second tier, quarter inch thick P95 frosted acrylic was mounted three-quarters of an inch off the gold panel. The frosted panel was bright enough to create a sharp contrast with the logo while still being transparent enough to let a hint of the brushed gold back panel through.

We applied cut vinyl text to the face of the acrylic to perfectly match the Angus Lee branding. Overall, the construction was kept simple enough to allow us to create the sign and install it within a few days. The finished product was five feet wide by twenty inches high and standoff mounted for extra dimensionality!

Angus had no objections to the finished project. In fact, he was extremely pleased. Case dismissed! Next on the docket: a new building sign for the firm!

Don’t Let Your Walls Feel Like a “Wallflower!”

By | Lobby Signs | No Comments

For the sake of illustration, let’s say you’re at a cocktail party. You don’t know many people there, so you decide to get to know some of the attendees. You see someone standing by himself at the other end of the room and choose to strike up a conversation. You start out by extending your hand:

“Hi, my name is Kelley. How are you?”


“How do you know the host?”


How would you react to this? Most of us would walk away and assume that the wilted wallflower didn’t want to meet anyone and needed to be left alone. Well, this is exactly what your business is telling people if it lacks lobby signs. Vancouver consumers want to feel welcome when crossing the threshold of a company for the first time. This can be achieved with reception area signs.

Freshen Your First Impression

Anything you ever read about lobby signs will tell you that this marker will contribute to the first impressions clients have of your enterprise. This is true. If you lack a reception area sign, many consumers will assume you have something to hide, since in general, those who are doing something illegal or morally questionable don’t want people to know who they are. In other words, Al Capone never had a lobby sign.

Of course, most businesses without a lobby sign are aboveboard, but having a quality custom lobby sign will show that your company is legitimate, professional, and trustworthy.

Take Customers on an Exotic Cruise through Your Company Culture

Your reception area is the perfect place for you to really help clients get to know your brand. Whether your business is intricate or simple, lighthearted or serious, you can create the right type of atmosphere with reception area signs. With our custom made signs, we can convey any image you want to put forward.

Lobby Sign Materials Say a lot about Your Company

One of the first decisions to be made when choosing a lobby sign is the material. You can pick from

  • Wood or stone – Do you run a wellness spa? Or, perhaps you practice alternative medicine? Office settings that lean toward an earthy appearance will benefit from natural materials like wood or stone for their lobby signs.
  • Polished or brushed metal – Are you one of the pioneers in your industry? Markers made of alloys and aluminum give off an air of longevity. No-nonsense accounting and legal firms come to us for metal lobby signs.
  • Acrylic – We can make acrylic match your company colors to boost your branding, and we have this really slick router that will cut the acrylic to fit your custom typeface. Acrylic is one of the most versatile materials known to man…or at least the signage industry.

These are just a few of the more popular materials we use, but if there is something else you want, our mighty sign makers are up for the challenge. The important thing is that you start welcoming visitors to your facility. Don’t be the snobby guy at the cocktail party!
