Wayfinding Packages For Architects & Builders

Visual Sign Design (VSD) specializes in creating wayfinding packages for new and existing schools, hospitals, office buildings, hotels, and other structures. VSD creates custom interior and exterior sign packages to meet your client’s needs.

VSD can work from architect’s drawings, plans, and CAD files and then provides a complete sign package for proofing. VSD supplies files to scale and production-ready files (if requested) to the sign company of your choice. Or, you can use the proofs for getting quotes for the best pricing from various sign companies near the job location.

VSD is more than just a wayfinding company. VSD has over 20 years of experience working in a full-service sign company. Not only can VSD make the signs look pretty on a proof, it can also design the signs to scale and provide the proper files for the sign company to use for production. Working in the sign industry, VSD has seen many wayfinding documents that needed to be redesigned to actually make the signs, which cost time and money.

Let Visual Sign Design create a smooth path from idea to design to production for your wayfinding signage.

Saving You Money

Detailed information supplied up front to Visual Sign Design will save time, which in turn will save you money. Having this information as early as possible in the process will also help VSD do its job efficiently and cut down on the back-and-forth of multiple proofs. Please use the questionnaire as a guide for collecting helpful information for your project.

Examples of what is needed: 

  • Client’s logo in vector format
  • Location and address of job
  • Photographs of the proposed sign location or of the existing sign to be replaced (if needed)
  • Colors – PMS colors or paint colors.
  • Architect’s drawings – Site plans, elevation drawings.
  • Initial sketches
  • Code requirements – Allowable square footage, etc.
  • Specific materials you would like to use
  • Other pertinent information

Please supply Visual Sign Design with any information you have that would make the job go smoothly. The more information you provide, the better and faster VSD can serve you.

Turnaround Time

Visual Sign Design strives to turn projects around as quickly as possible. VSD aims for 1 to 2 days for simple projects and 3 to 5 days for more complex projects.

The turnaround time for wayfinding projects is based on the size of the project. You will receive an estimated completion date for these projects.

Visual Sign Design is here to help you find your way to getting it done!
