No need to stop and ask for directions

Clear signage steers people to the right product

We all know the feeling of not being able to find what we are looking for and let’s be honest, we’d rather find it ourselves than have to ask.

That is why signage is so important in a library. It gives people the information they need to find what they are looking for without having to take up a librarian’s time.

Wayfinding or directory signage placed at the entrance of a library, will quickly and easily direct people to the correct zone within the library. Once in the right area, clear shelf signage will help them find exactly what they are after.

Signage is not limited to plain text

Combine text with graphics to create signage that is fun and eye-catching

Signage represents an opportunity to get creative and add impact and interest to your library. Plain text signs are boring. By combining text and graphics, you can guide users through your library in a visual way. Remember a picture is worth a thousand words!
