Commercial buildings need a wide range of signage in order to invite visitors and turn them to potential customers about important information. Building signs such as prominent entry signs to bathroom signs are crucial to be displayed in and around a building.
People often think of building signs when they see entryway identification signs. There are various kinds of these signs but their purpose is to identify the name of the building and the companies being housed. Buildings use a sign with a large frame to hold a number of smaller signs. The name of the building is on the top of the frame while the companies within are on the smaller signs.
Contrary to common knowledge, building signs include both exterior and interior signage. Visitors find it easy to find offices and medical clinics through directory signs installed inside the doors. The names of the businesses or doctors with their room numbers are listed down. It is advisable to use a business signs style that can be flexible for changes since tenants come and go. Directional signs should be installed if the building is large. First-time visitors can easily navigate and find their destinations with these directory and directional signs.
A common building sign is the name plates for interior doors. These serve for identification of the name of the business in the room.
Utilitarian signs are needed for every building. These do not seem much important but they always come out during times of need. One of these is the bathroom signs. Bathroom signs can be in the standard forms or customized. Every commercial building is required to have red exit signs. These are advised for safety during power failures or fires.
Parking lots signs also are part of the building signs. Their purpose is to make visitors identify or find their cars easily. These could either be lot or aisle numbers. Large complexes need outdoor directional signs. Warning signs and speed limit reduce the number of accidents. Buildings also cater to needs of persons with disability by adding handicapped parking signs.

Laws Regarding Installation of Building Signs
Each state has its own laws and ordinances regarding the putting up of building signs. Some zoning ordinances include the amount and kind of signs that businesses can display. Building inspectors monitor businesses regarding the number of signs that they are allowed to display, the kinds of signs not allowed, signs without permit, and abandoned or damaged signs.
Business signs can contain different information like the name of the business, kinds of products or services available, hours of operation, and others. Business establishments can display this information on projecting wall signs, permanent wall signs, neon signs, lettering painted on clear window glass, and lettering on the edge of window awnings.
These permanent business signs all require permit from a permit-giving agency of the state government.
