Trying to find a company to design and install your new lobby signs?

Custom Lobby signs, by comparison to other options, tend to grant you the most artistic freedom when it comes to design, layout, and color scheme–allowing you to pick what is going to be most effective for your individual needs. Obviously, every company has a unique brand or trademark that when displayed properly, will leave you with an effective and eye-catching signs. Acrylic, metal, PVC, aluminum, steel, or any other substrate can make for a great lobby sign.  Depending on the design, we can even add custom lighting. Overall, the only true limit is your imagination.

One of the most popular types of lobby signs is the custom cut acrylic lobby sign. For acrylic lobby signs, we take your logo and cut it from a piece of acrylic–anywhere from ½” to 1” thick–using a CNC machine. Depending on the size of the sign, we install either 2” studs or utilize interior double-sided tape to secure it. We then complete the process by either painting the sign or applying custom-printed vinyl to provide the perfect finish for your logo.

Wall Graphics are the quickest and most affordable type of wall sign. We start by printing your design on a thin layer of vinyl, after which we laminate over the design with either a matte or a gloss finish, giving you multiple options when it comes to how you want the final product to look. One important detail to take note of–we always test the wall prior to applying the graphics. Most common wall paints today have several stain releasing ingredients that make it either difficult or impossible for vinyl to adhere to the wall. Because of this, it is imperative that we always check to determine when the wall was last painted in order to avoid installation problems. Never fear–there are ways to work around this complication. If the wall was painted in the last year, we can dig into the paint in such a way as to allow the vinyl graphics to adhere to the wall–meaning that no matter how recent your last painting project was, we can still work with you in order to provide you with the best set of wall graphics possible.

Acrylic Lobby Signs are one of the most popular choices for businesses to brand their office walls. The signs typically mount flush to the wall using either studs for larger signs or double-sided tape. The signs can be created in standard acrylic colors, or we can paint the acrylic with a custom color to better suit your needs. We have also printed custom graphics and applied the vinyl directly to the face of the acrylic in order to provide our customers with a truly personalized look. In addition to traditional options, we can also use acrylic laminate on ½” thick industrial foam. While less common, this product gives a dimensional look and a total thickness of about ¾”. It works well in larger offices or with corporate logos that have a large variety of colors in their logo. These signs can be almost any size ranging from 2” letters to 4’ letters. These signs offer such a wide range of options that the only limit is your creativity. That being said, it is important to note that due to giving you more options and better quality, pricing for acrylic signs runs 30-40% more than vinyl wall graphics.

Brushed Metal Lobby Signs have also started to catch on–several companies have recently begun using aluminum as the base material. Optimum Signs, however, started using aluminum almost 6 years ago and has perfected the design and manufacturing aspects of these signs. We start with aluminum then add the necessary finish–whether that’s brushing, anodizing, or acid treating the sign–we can do it all. In addition to the many finish options we offer, we can also add color to the surface of the sign to mimic different types of metal. These signs are almost exclusively installed using studs because of their weight. Most of these signs are smaller than their acrylic counterparts because even though the signs are made from aluminum, they still weigh almost double what acrylic does. It is also important to note that due to increased durability, metal signs cost about 20-35% more than acrylic signs.
