What Are Wayfinding Signs?

What Are Wayfinding Signs?

Wayfinding signs can do more than help people find their way around your business.

While outdoor building signs help make an impression of your business to people out and about, indoor signage can be just as important too. Some designs, like dimensional letters, serve an aesthetic purpose, such as presenting a polished depiction of your brand and company name. Others, such as wayfinding signs, yield more practical and functional uses. Coupled with stylish design and durable construction, installing wayfinding signs offer multiple benefits to any store, office, or other commercial space. Read on to learn more about wayfinding signs and how they  can help your business.

What are Wayfinding Signs? 

Wayfinding signs can direct people from one location to another or keep them following along a guided path. These often get installed for directional and locational purposes. Directories, door signs, and overhead signs depicting where you are or what can be found somewhere are all considered wayfinding signs. Parking garages use wayfinding, too, to help people remember where they parked their vehicle and where to find it again.

Where to Install Them

To serve their directional purpose, wayfinding signs are best installed at junctions or along a path. These places include lobbies, hallway intersections, marked building locations like a department or floor, and near other passageways. Install these signs in visible spots, like overhead as blade signs or next to doorways as small wall-mounted signs. Consider where  people will be walking and looking for signs. These signs should be oriented for viewing along the guided route of inter-building destinations.

How Do Wayfinding Signs Help My Business?

Stylish yet functional wayfinding signage decorates your business’s interior with smart designs. Your new customers or clients will more likely be able to navigate your building with ease and find exactly where they need to go sooner. This accessibility saves them the trouble of stopping staff for asking directions and the frustration of finding the right department in an unfamiliar place to help them get their business sorted out. The way you present your business building in a helpful and polished manner can reflect on the level of professionalism you provide to your customers, as well.
