Nameplate and Interior Sign Basics

If you are faced with the challenge finding quality nameplates or interior signage for your organization, rest assured, this challenge is not as great as you might think. T-Cube Signs has a wide range of experience in the design and fabrication of nameplates and interior signs and we are ready and able to assist nearly any business or industry with the design, planning and ordering of their customized nameplates and interior signage. Here are some simple steps involved in planning your signs and getting your order completed.

Determine the Shapes and Sizes You Need

The dimensions of the interior signs and nameplates that you need are important not only for placement but also in terms of cost. Do you know the dimensions of each sign or nameplate that you need? Consider where the signs or nameplates will be displayed. If they will need to be viewed from a distance, they will need to be larger. Making decisions about the sizes and shapes you require should be done while you are on location so you can visibly compare scale and size within your own facility. Size and shape determinations will depend on the use of any logos or artwork that you wish to include with your signage. If you have any special size or shapes required for your business, be sure to contact us at T-Cube Signs. We look forward to the opportunity to meet your signage needs when it comes to unusual or creative nameplate or interior signage needs.

Finish and Color Options
There are a wide variety of color and finish options you can select for your nameplates or interior signs. Your choice of color and finish will relate in large part to the colors used in your branding, but whatever color or finish you choose, it is critical that you maintain consistency in your selection. If your signage is not uniform and consistent, your customer experience will be inconsistent as well.

Attachment Points
The method with which you choose to mount your sign is up to you, and we can provide you with nameplate holders or your interior sign can mount directly to a surface using flush mount screws or metal stand-offs to give a three dimensional effect. There are many mounting options available for nameplate signs and interior signs. If you are not sure about the best way to mount and display your signage, contact us at T-Cube Signs for advice regarding the best mounting alternatives for your nameplates or interior signs.

Planning Is Important For Your Signage

Signs produce results in many ways and it is important to understand how you are sending messages to your customers, clients or visitors. If you want to communicate with the public about your business, product or services, you need to be able to send your message with a clear and concise delivery. This message must be conveyed via an understandable and recognizable medium, and your message could range from the very important to the very mundane. For example, you may have a message that communicates your brand and your company philosophy, and you may have other messages to send that simply tell customers where to go or what to do at your place of business. In either case, signage plays a very important role to the success of your business.

Develop a Written Plan

When you consider signage for your business, it is important to develop a thorough signage plan that addresses all of your facilities needs in a comprehensive program. In many cases, architects and interior designers can provide assistance with the planning required to get this plan together. Planning takes time and you may find that there are many revisions before you identify the best plan for your business. During the planning process, you will achieve the most effective results if you are able to maintain some core values. In some cases, a core value may center on facility safety, for another business the core value may be brand identity, and another example of a core value might be the chance to offer visitors with educational opportunities throughout your facility.

Continuity Is Key

Another part of the planning process relates to conformity and continuity. These are important as you plan the signage for your facility, especially when it comes to brand identity. Maintaining uniformity can be a challenge in a large facility, but even a small store, restaurant or office can still have challenges unless a comprehensive documented plan is established to serve as a guide when producing and placing signage. This is particularly important, as your sign needs change over time. An initial order of signage for your facility could produce nice, uniform products that provide you with the identity and uniformity that you desire, but as time goes on you may find the need for additional signs or replacements signs for various reasons. If you have a documented signage plan in place, you will be assured that any replacement signs or new signs will maintain the uniformity you desire.

Planning your signage needs is in some respects more difficult than the ordering or even the installation process, because it requires care and decision making that is important to your business.
