Wayfinding and Directory Sign Options

Informational: Informational signs present any details a business wants to communicate. For example, this could be quick facts or history about the business. These signs might also contain directories or site maps. 


Directional: Directional signs point your visitors in the right direction. These directions might be displayed on post signs, reception desks, floor signs, elevator lobbies, or loading docks. Typically, they contain arrows or similar shapes that lead visitors the correct way.


Identification: Identification signs communicate to a visitor exactly where they are located in the building. These signs can include room names or floor plans.


Warning signs: Warning signs convey important information and are generally required by law. They must be clear and visible to sufficiently inform visitors of specific rules, instructions, or restrictions. Warning signs can also be used to keep visitors out of a certain space if the space is deemed unsafe or otherwise inaccessible.

No, not all directory and wayfinding signs must be ADA-compliant in Long Island. You must install ADA signs at certain places, such as entrances to rooms, on wheelchair-accessible paths, and to warn of hazards. Many businesses install two separate wayfinding signs, one customized with their branding and another smaller one with ADA-required information.

The cost of directory signs depends on various factors, such as size, materials, personalization options, and more. A small indoor directory sign may start at around $200, while larger outdoor directories can cost $2,000 or more.
