First impressions count when it comes to your business. When a customer or potential customer comes through your doors, you want them to be impressed, to believe you care about your business and their experience. Perhaps the most important investment for a positive first impression is a high-quality, eye-catching lobby sign.

But, before you decide to just throw something up on the wall, you should understand that there are many options to choose from. Remember, you want your lobby sign to reflect the personality and mission (the brand) of your business.


Again, there are limitless options when it comes to the types of materials, design, mounting preferences, etc. that you can utilize for your lobby and office signs.


Dimensional signs can be made from stainless steel, acrylic, PVC or foam. They can be cut into custom letters and shapes. But, before you approve it for installation, make sure the style appeals to your target audience.


The most popular type of lobby signs are made of a painted sign foam with an acrylic face. They can be installed directly to your lobby wall or can be used with stand-offs that will give a greater dimensional look. These are one of the most economical types of signs that delivers the high-quality look that positively reflects your business.


Acrylic Letter Signs

Flat cut acrylic letters provide a premium finish for any sign. They truly are a cut above the rest. One of the reasons for this is that flat-cut letters feature a slightly raised profile. This mimics the traditional style of sign, with a carved appearance. Large acrylic letters with a more traditional feel are ideal for law offices, banks, accountants, and financial companies. If you don’t have a brand, logo or typeface for your sign, the experts at Forerunner Signs & Graphics can develop some concepts and help you choose the perfect one for your new acrylic letters.


While it’s important to stand out, you don’t want to go too crazy with the finish or the color. You want to create a sleek, professional look to entice new customers and impress current clients.


Flat Cut Acrylic Letters

It isn’t just a traditional look you can create with flat letters. If you’re looking to get jazzy with your signage, flat cut out letters can do that, too. They are the ideal option for restaurants, bars, and takeaways. The best way to create fun and funky flat cut acrylic letters is with an unusual finish and a bold color.


You can also take advantage of flat cut acrylic letters if you run a youthful brand. Do you run a kid’s play area? Is your target audience teenagers? Large acrylic business signs are a great option. Thick material works for funky and it works seriously well for kid’s brands. If you want to create a pronounced effect, you can choose to float mount your flat cut acrylic letters. This creates the effect of floating and is perfect for a trendier finish.


Custom Acrylic Letters

The beauty of flat cut acrylic letters is that they work great with just about any surface. They do well against a solid or patterned background, brick, stone or concrete. They are a truly versatile signage solution. You can also use an acrylic letter sign board for a slicker finish. If you want an ultra-modern look, you can opt for a 3D acrylic letter sign board. The backing board works whether you’re creating a floating look or just a standard clear acrylic letters mount.
