Which way is the reception? How far is it to the club house and which jogging track should I follow to run the right distance? Clear direction signs make such questions unnecessary – whether the direction needs indicating indoors or outdoors.
Direction signs, or arrow signs as they are sometimes called, indicate which direction to go in order to find your way. Design a customised direction sign in our Design Page. You decide on the colour, shape and text.
Direction signs – Consider:
When it comes to information, bear in mind to try and be as clear as possible. For those in the know, the message of the sign is obvious; for people seeing it for the first time, that is not always the case.
Which direction and how far
A classic direction sign indicates the way to a farm, shop or club house. It may be by a major road, showing visitors where to turn off onto a minor road. In addition to direction, it should also specify the distance, not least to entice spontaneous visitors to turn off for a short while.
It is often better to use pictures instead of text on arrow signs, particularly if established symbols are used. Examples of symbols include windbreaks, toilets, fishing spots and hiking trails that can easily be indicated with a small image. The images do not necessarily have to exclude text. Direction signs are clearest when they feature an image, text and distance information.
