Signs are meant to give us some form of information. Warning signs show us the potential dangers or hazards of an area and even let us know if specific safety gear needs to be worn such as hard hats or protective eyewear. Traffic signs tell us what we are supposed to be doing on the streets along with what streets are in the area, billboards showcase businesses that we might want to visit and give us an idea of what is in the area for our enjoyment. Exterior signs let us know the name of a business at a particular building and what that business has to offer.
These signs area called wayfinding signs and are used for the purpose of giving us the direction we need to find what we are looking for. These signs come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and varieties. In hotels the wayfinding signs are typically located near the stairs and elevators to signify the direction to specific rooms, in professional buildings they are located at the entrance to the floors and the building itself in order to let you know what floor and room an office is on.
For retail stores, wayfinding signs are extremely important. These signs tell you what aisle products are located on and what department you are going to find. There are even smaller wayfinding signs throughout the aisles in some stores to show you what part of the aisle items are on. This keeps you from wandering around the grocery store aimlessly looking for the vegetable aisle or trying to understand why the bread is in one area of the store. These wayfinding signs need to complement the business look without becoming an eyesore, especially in a retails store where they are used so much more than anywhere else.
ID Signsystems is the leader in sign fabrication and development. Their amazing sign designers are great at making sure signs can be made for the purpose intended. For hospitals and hotels, many of the wayfinding signs are made from metals that give a feeling and look of sophistication and permanence. On the other hand, in a retail store the signs are usually made from plastics or a paper product because retail stores typically change their signs on a regular basis and need to be able to get their signs for a much lower price because they will be coming back again for new signs soon.
Wayfinding signs are not limited to the inside of businesses, some communities have begun to establish their own personality and look with street signs that show off the community pride. This gives a feeling of pride to an entire area and creates a sense of belonging and togetherness among neighbors of a housing development that have come together to live in a community together.
