Types of Logo Signs

Lobby signs are defined by location, not by the type of sign. You could use almost any kind of sign in your lobby. Having said that, there are certain types of signs that appear more frequently in lobbies than others, and these serve a valuable purpose. One type of lobby sign you’ll probably want is an identifier of the business or the building to guide visitors in. Often, we see this in the form of the company name or logo behind a reception desk. Dimensional letters and logos are very popular for this type of sign.
