Tips for Finding the Best Installation Area for Your Welcome Sign

 There are many things to consider when choosing where to install your metal plaque. Here are some expert tips for hanging corporate signs.


Choose a location that offers high visibility. Consider visitors' and employees' most common routes in your office. This will help you find an area with high visibility


Don't forget about lighting. The location you choose shouldn't be too bright or too dark. A welcome sign in an area with excessive light may create too much glare that obstructs visibility. Limited light can also be problematic. Consider installing additional lighting fixtures to highlight your plaque.

Appropriate height

It's important to calculate the perfect height for installing your metal plaque. Placing your sign too high or too low might make it difficult for guests and employees to see. Make sure to install your plaque at eye level and check that there are no obstacles that will compromise its visibility.

Installing Welcome Signs Effortlessly

Modern House Numbers makes sure your installation process is worry-free. Along with your durable welcome sign, we send a drilling template and mounting hardware. The steps for installation are easy to follow.
