Building a new office block for your business can be an exciting time. In most cases, you cannot wait to welcome new and existing customers to the new facility. As you complete the new office block, keep in mind that you need engraved signs. The signs are critical to directing customers to your offices and within the premises. Despite the power that engraved signs hold when it comes to branding, the application of signage is evolving every day. Keeping pace with the shifts ensures you get the most out of your engraved signs. Read on for emerging trends in engraved signage.
Improve Safety of Open Spaces
If you walk into any modern office today, you will not miss the vast open spaces. However, as businesses continue to use glass to outfit office space, so do accidental run-ins. There is no shortage of people running into glass walls and glass doors; however, the good news is that sign manufacturers have a solution. Enter engraved glass signs. Rather than rely on the glass to solely partition open spaces, businesses are using glass walls to double up as signage as well. By etching the company's logo or name, you increase the visibility of glass and improve the aesthetics of your office's interior. Therefore, the signage eliminates the probability of people running into glass walls and doors.
From ramps to low toilets, a lot of ground has been covered to ensure that people with disabilities have an easy time using public facilities. However, have you asked yourself how people with vision problems know which office or restroom they are going into? Notably, a lot still needs to be done, and engraved signs offer this opportunity. For example, rather than engrave the name of an office using alphabetical letters alone, you can also embed braille representing the information on the sign. With such signage, vision-impaired customers can feel the braille letters on the signs to help them get around the building. Therefore, visually challenged clients do not have to rely on others for directions.
Wearable Engraved Tags
The modern world has become more mobile than ever before. Businesses are no longer 'the island' of yesteryear when employees rarely vacated their premises throughout the day. Today, the average employee leaves the office for an off-site event or meeting several times in a day. For such instances, printed name tags and badges are still common. However, why should you use common identification tags if you can be unique with wearable signs, such as engraved acrylic tags? Not only are wearable engraved tags aesthetically appealing, but they are also less likely to get lost as employees will treat them as personal possessions.
