There's nothing worse than walking through a confusing office environment for the first time, looking for someone you've never met, and realizing you’ll be forced to stop and ask what door to knock on. Whether you're a job interviewee, customer, inspector, or simply delivering the mail, knowing what room you’re entering is crucial to keeping you professional and efficient. If you’re on the other side of the door, nameplates reduce your chances of being interrupted or frustrating clients who are searching for your services.
Besides identifying personnel, nameplates can also show the function of a room—clearly labeling libraries, lounges, conference or break rooms. These signs can also help create ambience for your business, setting the tone as innovative, traditional, or elegant before a customer even enters the room. With custom printing getting less and less expensive – even for top-notch brass plates – there are fewer and fewer reasons not to invest in nameplates. These pages will give you some valuable tips on selecting and designing your workplace's nameplates.
