24 Jul Welcome Back Students with Vinyl Wayfinding Graphics
Greensboro is home to a broad array of universities and colleges from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University to Greensboro College and Guilford College. We enjoy supplying all of the local institutions of higher education with vinyl wayfinding graphics for colleges and universities in Greensboro, NC. Read on to learn about the many uses for these markers.
The Versatility of Vinyl
In just the last few years, vinyl graphics have come a long way. Any images can be rendered on top quality vinyl thanks to innovations in digital printing. Oracal, Avery Dennison, 3M, and other world-renowned vinyl manufacturers are now producing films that cannot be distinguished from paint. Plus, they can be used on any nonporous surface, such as doors, walls, floors, and windows. Some of the popular wayfinding uses are
Floor Graphics – Floor graphics are a clever method for leading the way to administrative offices and classrooms. To engender school spirit, these graphics can be in the shape of your mascot’s paw prints, such as N.C. A&T’s bulldog. The floor is the new eye level as an increasing number of students are spending all of their time looking down at their cellphones. Floor graphics will get their attention.
Graphics above Doors – You can show pupils they have found the right room with vinyl decals or lettering. The function of the room can also be spelled out with the use of these graphics. This is important for being in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which requires all rooms with a permanent use to be labelled appropriately.
Directories – Directories near the entrance of your buildings as well as near elevators and stairwells will show visitors to professors’ offices, departmental offices, and other important rooms. We often list offices in alphabetical order with the floor number on the main directory. Then, on each floor, we list suite numbers and include arrows pointing the way.
Wayfinding Wall Murals – Students are typically filled with anxiety and excitement as they first enter a college building. With wall and floor graphics for colleges and universities in Greensboro, NC, you can help reduce any potential stress associated with finding the right room.
Solutions for Your School
When you contact Gate City Signs & Graphics, we perform a site survey and listen to your goals, so we can make recommendations for which markers are ideal for your budget and vision. Once you approve of our designs, we get down to work. We can create custom signs that match your already existing branding, including your school colors.
We work with your schedule to install your new wayfinding signage. Most schools prefer to do it the week before classes start. This avoids inconveniencing learners and faculty, but the administration is usually around to check in. Your new signs will make wayfinding a snap, look attractive, give your campus a contemporary look, and grab the eye.
