First Impression Business Branding Ideas for Facilities and Offices
We all know first impressions matter. That’s why we make sure there’s nothing in our teeth before a meeting, why we keep lint rollers in our car, and maintain diligent eye contact. Doing these things make sure we’re presenting the best version of ourselves to our customers, employees, and co-workers. But what about the office or facility you work in? What about the physical building you and your customers visit everyday? What kind of first impression is being made there?
At Sunrise Signs, we're experts at branding facilities, offices, and buildings. Whether it's a total building makeover or adding professional touches to internal spaces, we've got you covered. Here we'd like to take a look at a few different options you have when comes to branding your facility or office.
"Hey, That's Us!"
Inspiration Ideas: Company Logos, Mission Statements, Core Values, Room Labeling, Corporate Culture, Accent/Color pieces
Wall Graphics offer you a huge amount of flexibility when it comes to internally branding your facility. Typically consisting of cut lettering and custom shaped logos and images, these branding elements can be applied on almost any wall or space.
You’ve also got material flexibility as well - wall graphics are digitally printed and lettering has an option to be custom cut out of specialty vinyls like Gold Leaf or Brushed Silver. This gives you the most options when curating your corporate brand. Our team of professional installation experts will ensure that your new wall graphics are applied on the level and to maximize the lifespan of the material.
Inspiration Ideas: Office privacy, room labels, window tagging, culture branding
Privacy film is a special-use vinyl that creates a “frosted glass” look, without the cost and window damage associated with typical sandblasting or acid etching frosting techniques. This film simply applies over glass and can be custom cut and shaped, allowing for names, simple logos, and images to be created out of the film.

One of most powerful internal branding statements you can make is with a wall mural. This is the branding that makes people stop and say, “Whoa”.
This is branding that defines a workspace, something sticks with your visitors, customers, and employees. They take it home with them because wall murals make big statements and leave lasting impressions. These are big projects with big impacts, and we’ll be there every step of the way.

Internal displays are the tools that allow your facility or office to speak with confident professionalism. Internal displays can be many things - 3D lettering, Custom Formed Logos, Stand-Off panels, or just about any kind of wall mounted display. Internal displays are great for creating professional statements in office lobbies, common spaces, and visitor areas. While there’s an almost endless amount of internal display types, we’ll take a look at the two most popular kinds here.
3D Lettering provides a great opportunity to display your company’s brand in bold and impactful ways. Letters can be made from a range of materials like formed plastics, weather resistant foams, brushed laminates, and even solid cut metal.
These pieces can either be natural material, painted, or applied with vinyl to incorporate custom logos and brand elements. You can call the shots with assurance, knowing we can handle every step of the process from design, fabrication, and installation.
Stand-Off displays are great conversation pieces that identify your branding, highlight the history of your business or provide more information about your services and products. These displays consist of a base material (like polycarbonate, glass, or wood) which is then projected off the wall using spacers or wire line placed around the edges of the material.
You can choose from multiple materials and effects (like halo lighting) to make your stand-off display a unique and memorable piece of your business environment. We'll then prepare and finalize these signs at our facility to guarantee a powerful and professional product. Our installation team takes special care to make sure these signs are securely installed and mounted to ensure a long life full of powerful impressions.
Exterior Signs & Displays
Inspiration Ideas: Entrance Signs, Building Lettering, Window Graphics, Facility Wayfinding + Identification, Illuminated Signs
Before you “wow” your visitors and employees with your great new internal branding, you need to set the tone with some powerful outside displays. These are the pieces that define your building and set your branding tone. Are you located in an office park? Are your visitors and customers easily able to identify your building? Do they know where they’re going? What kind of first impression do they get when they approach your doors? These are all questions that outside displays answer.
Examples include dimensional building lettering, window graphics, illuminated signage, placards, and impressive monument signs. For your windowed areas, we offer digitally printed cut vinyls as well as one-way perforated privacy films.
It's important to approach these projects with a keen eye to design and installation, making sure that your building’s outdoor branding is properly scaled and installed to garner the most impact for your business. To make these projects as easy as possible for you, we can also handle any engineering and municipal permits that are needed to create these powerful showpieces.
