Clear Lobby Sign

Clear Acrylic Lobby Sign

This simple acrylic lobby sign for a local financial services company is a great example of how to showcase your brand in a tasteful way. This medium-sized lobby sign is made of clear, matte acrylic backer and the logo is thin dimensional acrylic letters. The logo subhead and tagline are made of premium cut vinyl. Round brushed aluminum standoffs were chosen to anchor the lobby sign directly to the wall because of the subtlety of the installed look.

Dimensional letter/logo reception area sign

This brushed aluminum sign for a property management office shows how much impact some simple dimensional letters can have. The intent of this sign was to keep the logo and letters subtle and classy. There are lots of different options available for materials and finishes, but this reception area sign is made of 1/8” thick composite aluminum. The shapes of the letters and logo accents were then routed out using our CNC router/engraver machine and installed directly to the wall.

Here’s a great example of how to utilize your brand as the focal point in your reception area or waiting room. This reception area sign for a marketing firm is made of opaque (non-transparent), high-gloss, red acrylic with black and white dimensional acrylic letters applied directly to the backer. Round black standoffs were used in the installation. Standoffs are one of the best ways to anchor your sign because they’re minimal and help to add depth to the finished sign.

Composite aluminum salon lobby sign

Here’s an example of taking a great logo design and creating an effective reception area sign! This entire sign was routed from a piece of thin aluminum composite metal. We used a bright pink opaque premium vinyl for the pink features and black premium vinyl to cover the subheading backer. To help line up the letters and logo features we made a simple line template and adhered the sign components directly to the wall.

Indoor Signs for Fort Collins Businesses

Effective signage doesn’t need to be crazy or loud. But when it is, it sure does make a statement! Not all businesses can be cray-cray, but if your business is very social like a bar or brewery, you can let your creative juices flow! If you can imagine it, we can print it! You do have to put a lot of thought into what statement you want to make. With wall graphics or wall murals (especially interior graphics), you have to be aware of how your graphics affect the “look” and “feel” of the space. When designing an interior space, professional designers have a lot to consider. Choosing the furniture, lighting, carpet and many other things really determines how comfortable people feel in the space. Will customers be eating, drinking or relaxing?  Those are also great questions to ask before designing an interior space.

Intersect Brewing, the newest craft brewery to open in Fort Collins, came to us to print and install their interior wall graphics. We also had the opportunity to manufacture their interior dimensional letters. They had a great design already ready for printing, so this project was a great success from start to finish. A simple color scheme and a gorgeous typographical layout made for a very effective “look”. Our favorite parts of this project are the creative door wraps with song lyrics on their bathroom doors!

Routed & engraved signs can be made from many materials such as wood, metal, plastics, acrylic and sign foam

Routed & Engraved Signs

One way to get routed signs is by using a hand held router.  Although, a hand held router produces beautiful signs using wood, metal and other hard materials, they can be slow.  In this fast-paced world of business and competition, you need your sign or signs fast.  For a sign company like Connecting Signs, we want equipment that produces fast and high quality results to meet our customers’ needs.  A CNC router will do just that.  These type of routers are controlled by a computer, which uploads all the design information in the machine.  A CNC router typically produces consistent, high quality work – improving productivity.  For production that is repeated over and over, a CNC router is the only way to go.  Automation and precision are the key benefits!   The same thing applies to engraved signs.  Routed & Engraved signs can be made accurate, repeatable, and cost effective in considerable less time than doing by hand.

Types of signs:

  • Routed out signs (indoor or outdoor)
  • Engraved (creates a hand chiseled look)
  • Engraved tags
  • Cutout letters and graphics
  • Intricate logos
  • Plaques
  • 3D letters
  • Custom ADA compliant signs meeting government regulations

            Complying with the ADA
The Americans with Disabilities Act 
(ADA) requires all commercial facilities (which include any building open to the public) to accommodate the special needs of individuals with disabilities by removing physical and communication barriers. This means that buildings such as hospitals, government buildings, public and private schools, transportation terminals, hotels, restaurants, and manufacturing facilities must meet ADA requirements in terms of signage design and installation.

There are companies familiar with the ADA and that can help your firm conform to the regulations. Keep in mind that while there are costs involved with ADA compliance, the government also provides ADA-specific tax refunds for businesses.

Materials that can be routed and engraved:

  • Metal (stainless steel and aluminum)
  • Wood
  • Acrylic
  • Sign foam
  • Plastics

Process:

  • Routing is a high speed process of cutting, trimming, and shaping wood, metal, plastic, and a variety of other materials.
  • Sign engraving is the process of removing material from a substrate, leaving indentations that form letters or graphics.

We want to be your choice for all your indoor and outdoor routed or engraved signs.  Give us a call and let’s team up to make sure you get the best sign for your business – Get in the “groove” with your next sign!  970-493-0133
