Choosing aluminum or a metal laminate for your business’ décor helps to set the stage for a customer’s or client’s expectations. Lobby signs in particular reflect on the brand identity of your company, which in turn helps to set the backdrop for successful interactions between your staff members and the consumer. Take for example aluminum lobby signs. In Fort Worth, they are a cost-effective method of creating a sleek reception area marker.
Flat-cut aluminum can be used to create individual letters that reflect the typeface of your company’s name. The thickness of the letter depends on your preference. We can go from 1/8th of an inch to ½ inches. After cutting the letters in the desired height, thickness and font, we polish them to smooth out any edges. Depending on your order, we now either brush them with a matte finish or coat them with polyurethane enamel for color. Since these letters are usually very lightweight, they are easy to mount directly to your lobby’s wall.
Metal laminate lobby signs for Fort Worth are the preferred choice for service providers. Examples include attorneys, physicians, accountants, investment bankers and anyone who wants to portray a sophisticated image with a hint toward the longevity of the company. The substrate for the metal is usually acrylic or foam, but PVC is also a good choice. You have the option of choosing a thickness between ½ inches to two inches. We cut the laminate to perfectly fit on the substrate, which we then paint to match the metal’s color. The result is a letter that mimics the look of solid metal but is actually quite a bit cheaper to make.
Installing Your Signs
No matter which material you pick, you have options. Although most of our customers will choose individual metal laminate or aluminum letters that we then install by mounting them to the wall, some have decided to have us mount them to a substrate. This adds the opportunity to turn a sophisticated sign into an avant-garde display for your front office. Choose glass to heighten the effect of aluminum. Acrylic works great with the foam substrate. Still another option is the mounting of thin metal strips to a metal sheet that is then attached to a substrate.
Aluminum and Metal Laminate Lobby Signs Both Great Choices!
As you can see, the options increase whenever you add new materials to the mix. Since the use of mixed-material lobby signs is coming into fashion and has taken the Fort Worth business community by storm, you can now see some amazing creations that mix and match materials for pronounced branding, heightened name awareness and impressive marketing. Getting started on your own order is as easy as giving our experienced lobby signage experts a call.
We discuss your reception area’s look and desired décor with you. If you already have some artwork that we can work with, we request that you forward it to us. For customers who are uncertain about the look and feel of a material, we usually schedule an appointment to see samples, which helps with the decision-making process. Finally, we create some sketches that best reflect your instructions. Once we have succeeded in meeting your vision for the sign, we manufacture and install it. It is really that easy!
