Every business will have a bathroom, whether it is for the staff or customers. Separate genders or display the name of the room with pride by fixing a sign to the door. Include an icon for easy reading and keep the sign small so it doesn't dominate the space.

Welcome signs are great business signs to have in your shop and office

Reception and Wayfinding Signs:

Reception signs must be elegant and welcoming. Large enough for people to see from a distance but not too large so that it becomes intimidating. Clear typography and a simple colour scheme enable everyone to enjoy the sign. Wayfinding signs need more actions than words. Hiking trail signs or hotel hallway signs are prime examples of wayfinding signs. Think about including arrows or direction indicators to display the message.

Office Signs

Desk signs and other office signs tend to be smaller in size. Yet, despite their reduced appearance, they still need to be readable from a distance. Streamline the colour scheme. Use an authoritative typeface to create a feeling of professionalism and welcome staff with a friendly message. Personalised signage can also increase the employee’s sense of belonging within the company.

Place Your Sign on the Correct Background.

For the greatest impact, contrast is key. For light walls, choose a sign with a dark background and light text. This helps people view the sign from a distance. If the walls are dark, then it is best to choose a light sign so that customers can be sure to enjoy it in its full glory. This is important, especially when creating a business hours sign or other informative signs.
