Different Types of Hotel Signage

Most people don’t realize just how many signs a fully functioning hotel has. Even a small establishment will have more than a dozen, and all of them serve different purposes. Here’s a look at various hotel signage types available today:

hotel signage

  • Brand Signs – Internal and external brand signs include the hotel’s logo, name, location, etc. They help ensure your branding remains visible at all times.
  • Room Number Signs – These are placed on or around a room’s door so guests can know which one is theirs.
  • Stairway Signs – These signs identify stairways and floor, often including other instructions like emergency exit information, roof access warnings, mention of CCTV surveillance, etc.


  • Emergency Signs – Emergency signs mark out exits, fire escape routes, fire safety instructions, and other such information. All public establishments like hotels must have them.
  • ADA Signs – Hotels should be accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities. ADA signs provide all the necessary information to disabled individuals so they can navigate through the property safely.
  • Directory Signs – Directory signs show where different areas of the hotel are located. For example, a sign may contain directions to a reception area, lounge, gym, swimming pool, spa, concierge desk, etc. They help people navigate a hotel building easily.

Hotels install several other signs like bathroom, property rules, door, no smoking, insert or window, etc.

Enhance Your Brand with Graphic Signs

Businesses have been using beautiful or quirky images on signs to attract customers for centuries now. The visual medium immediately catches people’s attention, especially you choose its design carefully. At Dave’s Signs, we can create all kinds of graphic signs and have expert designers on board to help clients.

What are Graphic Signs?

Graphic signs are a special kind of signage that may include a business’s name or showcase images you want to be associated with the brand. For example, we created a graphic sign that featured a vintage truck with traditional beer barrels and a man standing in front of it. The design was for Finney’s Crafthouse & Kitchen, which provides craft beer on tap and great food.

The hand-painted custom graphic design also featured our client’s brand name in a vintage style. This established a strong brand presence while showcasing the company’s message clearly. Custom graphic signs are a highly effective medium for this purpose.

What are the Different Types of Lighted Signs? Here are our Top 5:

Signs come in different sizes, shapes, and compositions, but very few have the impact of a well-designed lighted sign. This product immediately grabs attention, especially during the evening time. That’s why it has been one of the most popular types of signs for decades.

At Dave’s Signs, we offer a wide range of custom-designed lighted sign options. You can choose something that fits your business requirements perfectly.

Types of Lighted Signs

There are several options available in the market today. These are the most popular: lightbox or cabinet signs, front-lit channel letter signs, reverse-lit channel letter signs, often called halo-lit, neon signs, and externally-lit signs.

We encourage clients to discuss them with our expert designers to come up with a unique look that is right for their business.

Here’s a Brief Look at Our Top 5:

Illuminated Lightbox Signs

1.) Lightbox Signs or Cabinet Signs

These have a simple design structure with inside illumination. Every sign has an internal light source, usually a fluorescent lamp or LED lights that shine through a transparent panel. This panel has your company’s branding, logo, name, or other such information. Surprisingly affordable, these signs stand out well during the day and night when the light comes on.

2.) Front-Lit Channel Letter Signs

Front-lit channel signs have a bold, prominent effect, which is why it is one of the most popular lighted sign designs today. All the letters are illuminated from the front, which ensures their different colors really shine through. These signs can be used in both indoor and outdoor displays.

3.) Backlit / Reverse-Lit / Halo-Lit Channel Letter Signs

Different names for the same type of sign. These signs have an ethereal appearance, which is perfect for brands aiming for a more sophisticated look. Every single letter or element has an illuminated background and is readable from a distance. Businesses choose halo-lit signs because they have a more distinguished look and can be lit with a lot more control and colors than a simple lightbox sign. The channeled metal lettering is easily visible in daylight and at night with LED or neon lights illuminating each element from behind for that attractive modern look.

4.) Neon Signs

Neon signs have been around forever — a classic look with a vintage feel of yesterday. Used for both interior and exterior, they provide a bright, warm glow that few other lighting systems can imitate. When you think of the signs you remember over the last 100 years, chances are it’s a neon sign.

5.) Externally-Lit Signs

Externally-lit signs are illuminated by an external source like gooseneck or sometimes called barn lights, bulbs mounted at the base of a sign, or even hidden. This illuminates the sign and often lights part of the sign in the shadows of an internally lit sign like this halo-lit channel letter monument sign: Star of CA.

Ground Lighting – This illumination type works well with monument signs.

Top Lighting – For example, barn lights give that nostalgic feel to a dimensional letter or hand-painted sign.

Recessed Lighting – Hidden somewhere and designed to give off a glow or illuminate locations of a sign that are usually shadowed.

These are our best-selling lighted signs. Other options include digital signs like LEDs and push-through lettering. All signs are customizable, so discuss what kind of designs you want with our experts.

Office Suite Signs

Signs are an essential aspect of establishing a brand presence and ensuring people can find you. They’re especially important if you have an office in a corporate building with many other businesses. At Dave’s Signs, we provide high-quality office suite signs that customers can mount by their office door or other such prominent locations.

Office Suite Signs

What is an Office Suite Sign?

An office suite sign is a plaque that mentions your office suite number, brand name, owner name, and other details. It provides visitors with all the information they need to know, which improves their overall experience at your establishment. These signs are generally smaller than outdoor signs. They are placed on the office door or beside it to ensure they’re visible to everyone passing by. You can choose from a wide range of designs, colors, materials, and fonts.

Choosing the Right Design

You need to choose a design that establishes a strong brand presence to get the best results. Look for designs that work well with your company’s message and target audience. For example, if you’re a pediatrician, choose something colorful and vibrant. If you’re a lawyer, choose a sleek and professional design.

Office Suite Signs

Personalizing a sign can help it stand apart from a similar design in the building. We recommend metal or glass plaques because they look modern and are easier to maintain. Wood-finish signs add an aura of elegance and luxury, which makes them a good option for high-end brands or services. If you’re not sure about the design or material, our expert graphic artists can help. They can also design a new brand logo for the sign to ensure it looks current.
