What is Architectural Signage?

Architectural signage is custom signs or signage system implemented throughout a commercial or public space that is used to enhance your company’s environment. They’re often outfitted with bright colors to attract attention and do not always follow the branded in-house look. Architectural signage looks to complement, integrate, and enhance the overall architectural design of the space its in.

Architectural signage will use materials commonly found in the exterior architectural design and are built for longevity. That means there will be a lower threshold for error and in return require a much higher attention to detail than expected, such as, no visible hardware or seams showing once the project is complete.

Architectural signage requirements:

  • Efficiently and accurately communicate a wayfinding message
  • Encapsulate the clients brand experience
  • Have cohesive environment and design 

How architectural signage manufacturers make signs:

Architectural signage manufacturers can be construct signs in an abundance of different ways. Architectural sign manufacturers build company signs to last for years if a regular maintenance schedule is upheld. Most of the material used to construct these signs will come from the shop floor utilizing the talents of our fabrication team and in-house machinery such as such as the CNC router, flatbed printer, laser cutter, and large-scale 3D printer. After all components are fabricated, they are then finished as needed with sanding, paint, graphics, and/or sewing. 

Common examples of architectural signage:

  • Large-format printed vinyl graphics
  • Textured wall murals and coverings
  • Directional signage
  • Acrylic or metal finishes and fixtures
  • Contour-cut and dimensional signs
  • Digital signage

How long does architectural signage take to make?

When creating architectural signs, gauging when a project will be complete is based on complexity of the design, scale of the project, materials used, and the location of where these objects will be installed. Depending on these factors, an architectural signage project could take a couple of weeks to a few months. 

What to look for once your architectural signage project is complete:

  • No exposed or visible fasteners
  • No obvious seams
  • High attention to all elements

What is the typical price range for architectural signs?

With architectural signage being a highly customizable item, the price range can only be determined by the scope of work. Gathering crucial details from your customer or team is always a good place to start. Ask questions such as: Where will the signage be installed? What is the scale you are looking for? What materials will you incorporating? The more questions you ask, the greater foundation you will have when determining a price for the project you are trying to create.
