5 Basic Principles of Property Management Way Finding Sign Systems


If you are in the property management business, signs are a vital to your success. Something as simple as way-finding signage can be the difference between failing and succeeding. In fact, unless property management way finding sign systems conform to basic principles, they could have the opposite effect on your reader. Here are 5 basic principles for proper signage:

1. Make it Easy to Read

Your letters should bein plain fonts and large enough to be seen clearly. Some people may have vision problems and you want your signs to be easy to read by everyone. This is very important for apartment signs and letters.

2. Get Straight to the Point

Effective property management way finding sign systems get right to the point. Suppose you want to direct people to your parking lot. Don't provide any more information than you need. You could list your company name with an arrow pointing in the right direction and the words "customer parking." This is sufficient.

3. Provide a Clear Meaning

The sign reader should not have to figure out what the sign means. The intent and direction should be immediately obvious (like "handicap parking"). If not, you could create confusion. People do not want to have to think about something like a directional sign.

4. This is Not the Place to Advertise

A company logo is fine, but the best property management way finding sign systems are not meant to get people to buy products or services. They are there to provide immediate information so people know which way to go or where there are currently located.
