5 Ways Stock Office Wall Graphics Hurt Your Business (And What To Do About It!)

5 Ways Stock Office Wall Graphics Hurt Your Business (And What To Do About It!)

As the title says, today’s post is all about how using stock or templated office wall graphics for your interior design and wayfinding can negatively impact your business. Read on to learn why and where to invest in custom office wall graphics instead.

Stock Office Wall Graphics Hurt Your Business

Boring, standard-issue office wall graphics can actually do more harm than good:

  • Stock office wall graphics make your business blend in. You want your business to stand out, not blend in. If your wall graphics make new clients and employees feel like they’re walking into “just” another nondescript office, it could badly affect your company’s first impression.
  • Stock office wall graphics hamper creativity. Creative inspiration and innovation rarely comes out of bland environments adorned with impersonal templates and standardized messages. Ever noticed that Google’s office walls aren’t covered with the same trite “inspirational quotes” you see in middling offices around the country? Fresh office wall graphics create environments conducive to fresh ideas.
  • Stock office wall graphics squander branding opportunities. Office wall graphics are tremendous branding tools, but unless your brand image is that of a stock sign or template (in which case, change it!), stock office wall graphics won’t cut it.
  • Stock office wall graphics get tuned out. Even if the copy is different, stock office wall graphic designs often get overlooked. Readers see a familiar shape, colors, and size, and assume that the message equally banal.
  • Stock office wall graphics can trigger bad associations. When you default to stock options to try and save time and money (or simply because you don’t care), there’s always a chance that you’ll be “copying” your competition, some of whom your new clients may have just left after bad experiences. Many people still base purchase decisions on gut feelings and intuition, both of which can be influenced by subtle environmental cues. If they see the same signs in your office that appeared in that of the company they spurned, you could trigger a bad associate and poison your first impression! The chances might be slim, but no such risk exists with custom office wall graphics.
