The reception area of your building is how you greet your clients, customers and employees. If the first impression a visitor has of your company is that of a soulless, underwhelming, or even perhaps confusing office reception then you are missing great communication opportunities.
Good signage can deliver your branding message, as well as information and direction. As reception areas are typically open plan, the ideal signs for your front desk should help to create dedicated spaces for queuing, waiting, and any other activity that may take place in your reception. All whilst maintaining a frictionless reception, where customers can transition from one space to another without feeling disconnected.
If you regularly experience queues for the front desk, you may want to consider a floor standing sign holder, such as “please wait here” or any other message that prompts visitors to queue in a certain area without disrupting the flow of the rest of the room. Floor standing sign holders also provide navigational prompts or display free-standing maps through confusing corridors. Their portability makes them great for temporary signage as and when you need it.
Menu sign holders, on the other hand, can impart a great number of different messages to visitors and guests entering your reception area. Whether they’re navigational cues, an out-of-order message, or a list of prices or services, menu sign holders are popular additions to the reception area. Available in a range of sizes, you can simply print off your promotional or informational messages and slip them into the sign holders. Counter-top sign holders for the front desk can inform your visitors on any company news, the latest promotion, or just a friendly reminder of your opening times.
Waiting area displays are an ideal location for leaflet holders. As your visitors sit back and relax, they will no doubt appreciate any reading material available to pass the time. Not only do literature dispensers provide visitors with some form of literature to distract themselves with whilst waiting to be attended to, but can be a great way to promote your services or provide guests with further information regarding your organisation - that they can read there or take away with them.
