We put PEOPLE first!TM

Ultimately, everything we do at People Signs is about people. The customers we serve and the clients they serve.
And, in turn, the customers, patients, students, shoppers, and more - that those clients impact.

Our very name recognizes that the need for signs begins with people. Primarily, signs identify and direct – getting seekers or travelers from one place to the next. They pinpoint locations, designate departments and name names. They lead people. Redirect them. Stop them. Announce them. Caution them. Welcome them. Entice them. And sometimes, they frustrate them.

That's where we come in. With decades of experience in interior and exterior architectural signage and wayfinding, the community of sign professionals at People Signs provides the knowledge and know-how to produce impactful signage from a simple nameplate to campus wide, full-scale programs. All aimed at communicating clearly
with people.

WHEN to select your signs

Begin at the beginning with each destination ... and people ... in mind.

Planning signs early in a project, whether for a new facility or a retrofit, leads the way to a cohesive, effective building plan -- not only for the signs but for a clearer understanding of interior and/or exterior traffic flow. Once you anticipate movement through a building or site, you recognize potential bottle necks, clear traffic hurdles and open a path to efficiency and productivity.

Leaving signage decisions to the last minute risks: not getting an occu- pancy permit on time; money wasted on temporary signs and/or rush fees; additional maintenance costs for potential wall damage due to changes; and, worse yet, the cost of undoing unanticipated problems. Save money, time and aggravation by planning ahead.

Consider an interior sign program as the ribbon that completes the office furnishings package. Signs selected during the decision-making about furni- ture and décor better complement the design elements and reflect the atmosphere of the site. They give a voice to the environment, welcoming clients, identifying locations, directing movement and controlling foot traffic throughout a building. And, importantly, they support the brand identity.
