Interior signage is mounted indoors to further promote your business and decor. Indoor signs should not only be informational, but also be easy to read, attractive, and compliant to ADA regulations. Interior signs are protected from the weather, and they can help increase the customer’s shopping experience by providing information and directions.

The different types of interior signage that may be needed by a business include directional signage, informational, sales announcements, product areas, merchandise labels, and even decorative interior signage. Consider attractive lobby signage, sales banners and posters, hanging informational signs, and pole or pedestal mounted product signage.

Indoor signs can be constructed from, vinyl, metals, foam core board, wood, acrylic, fabric, photographic paper, glass, and digital or electronic signage. Different materials are considered for temporary versus permanent signs, but the material selected should be appropriate for the environment in its ruggedness, ability to be easily read, how long the sign will be mounted, and how big the interior sign will be.

Acrylic is one of the best materials for indoor signs and is a great replacement for heavier glass signage. Acrylic interior signs are durable and attractive for lobbies, architectural signage, and reception areas where vibrant and long lasting color is important. Messages can be printed with UV ink or with vinyl letters onto acrylic signs.

Acrylic signage with aluminum stand-offs can last for 5 years or more before needing to be replaced. For indoor signage made of other materials, these signs usually last for an indefinite period of time, except for the possibility of fading ink and those signs that are constantly exposed to direct sunlight will degrade much faster.

Interior signs typically do not require a permit unless the sign has electrical wiring or if the sign is heavy enough to require professional installation. These two requirements are to protect the public and employees from injury and to prevent major property damage if a large sign were to fall.

Yes, interior signs can be illuminated as long as the sign’s brightness is not harmful to the eyes. Neon, fluorescent, or LED-lit signage can add visual excitement to an area in addition to increasing the visibility in the area. Backlit signs are especially attractive without adding harsh direct light to an area.

Interior signs should be dusted regularly and cleaned a few times per year. Acrylic interior signage should be wiped with a soft cloth and a mild soap and water solution. Indoor signs should be inspected and/or replaced if any components have broken, if the sign’s message has faded, or if the sign’s message is no longer appropriate.

The cost of an interior sign will depend on the size and the material used. HomeAdvisor reports that business signage can cost between $500 to $5,000 with larger reception area signs costing the most. Other factors that will affect the cost of indoor signs is if it is an electronic or back-lit sign that will require the running of electrical power to the sign.
