Regardless of whether you attended or not, you have likely been on a college campus at some point in your life. What was it like? Were you able to easily navigate your way around? Or, was it all a bit overwhelming, and you had to search for help? In Southeast Nebraska, there are several institutions of higher learning, and even some fifth-year seniors still get lost on many of the campuses. This makes wayfinding signage important. Thankfully, Sign-O-vation is one of the premier suppliers of wayfinding signs for colleges and universities in Lincoln NE. Here are some of the most requested options:
Finding the right building is just half the battle. Unfortunately, GPS devices and apps are not sophisticated enough to handle the interiors of buildings yet. So, how do you find the room you need? Interior directories are the way to go. We suggest installing directories listing departments and their locations in the main entryway of each of your buildings. It is also useful to hang directional arrows that point the way.
Wayfinding Wall Decals
In recent years, wall decals have come a long way. High-resolution photographs and other images can be printed on high-quality vinyl adhesive films thanks to innovations in digital printing technology. Also, only a well-trained eye can tell the difference between vinyl wall graphics and paint. You might use vinyl ribbons of various colors to lead students to specific rooms or offices. Or, announce room numbers and names with vinyl lettering above doors.
Exterior Post and Panel Sign Systems
If you have ever driven around the University of Nebraska, you know how confusing it can get with all of the one-way streets and roads that kind of just end with no warning. All university campuses that have slowly increased in size over time tend to be like this. You might pray that drivers are skilled and safe enough to control their vehicles while looking at a GPS or map, or you can point the way to popular facilities and identify buildings with post and panel sign systems.
Custom Signs for Your Campus
If none of the above solutions work with your branding, don’t worry. Before making suggestions that fit your branding and goals, we listen to what you have in mind and perform a site evaluation. For example, if you want to exude tradition and professionalism, aluminum signs may be your best alternative. We can supply you with solid metal plaques and dimensional letters. Aluminum laminate signs also get the job done when you are working with a tight budget. No matter your sign choice, we can incorporate your school colors, fonts, and logos to boost your branding.
From Nebraska Wesleyan University and Union College to Bryan College of Health Sciences and Southeast Community College and every other institution of higher education in between, we are happy to serve the area with wayfinding signs for colleges and universities in Lincoln NE.
