Lobby signs are a great way to put your brand front and center as soon as your customers walk in the door.

As they say, you only get one chance to make a first impression. Just as you want your receptionist to look their best when greeting customers, a custom sign can immediately elevate the look of any lobby.

Lobby signs can be dimensional or have flat surfaces, painted or covered with vinyl overlays, traditional or custom. With a wide variety of materials, finishes, and lighting options, we have NW Sign Solutions has a wide variety of options to give you the lobby sign you want.

Thinking of adding a lobby sign to your office, but not sure where to begin? Here are a few things to consider:

  • Design
  • Materials
  • Placement
  • Lighting
  • Cost


You may think there isn’t a whole lot of wiggle room when it comes to the design of your lobby sign. After all, you already have a company logo with on-brand colors and fonts. And when marketing your brand is concerned, it’s important to remain consistent. You may have vertical and horizontal designs, but too many changes can confuse customers.

But there is room to play. For example, if you need a lobby sign for the headquarters of a concrete manufacturer, you may think about recreating the look of concrete. These touches may not show well on business cards, pamphlets, or online, but will come alive when the logo is 5-feet wide in the office lobby!


Will the office sign be made of concrete? Not necessarily. But NW Sign Solutions work with an array of materials to get the look that you want. The most common materials we use include sign foam, Sintra PVC, acrylic, aluminum, and steel or reclaimed metal. We can even create lobby murals for your office.

This allows us to create the look and feel you want. If you run an auto-detailing shop, how great would a large, shiny, metal logo just behind the front desk look? We have the material to recreate your design, your colors, and your brand.


Depending on the makeup of your lobby, signs can be placed behind the front desk, on the front of the desk, or even hanging above the desk. Not sure where your sign will make the biggest impression? Just ask us: NW Sign Solutions has been improving the look of Portland/Vancouver lobbies for more than 10 years.


For the most part, there is no need for lobby signs to be illuminated because the lobby itself is usually well-lit. However, if you’re looking for a little extra pop, there are options. With back-lighting, spotlights, or well-positioned lamps, you can bring a little more attention to your sign – and your business.


Whether it’s simple elegance or in-your-face extravagance, NW Sign Solutions can create a lobby sign for almost any budget. Not sure you’re in a position to acquire a lobby sign?
