The Sign Authority, Inc., located in Wheaton, IL recently created this elegant lobby sign for Medstrat’s mission statement. In 1996 Medstrat created the industry’s first PACS software specially designed for the orthopedic surgeon. They are the recognized leader in software solutions for private practices, and hospital administrators.

Medstrat was looking for a simple but sophisticated, well designed sign for their lobby to highlight their mission statement. They had seen some examples of other lobby signs we have done for other customers on our web site, and decided they wanted to go with an acrylic sign with etched vinyl to create a faux etched glass look. This sign complements the dark blue wall with the clear acrylic face.

The brushed aluminum stand-offs are the finishing touch to a lobby sign. Standing the sign slightly off the wall like you see here in the photo, creates subtle shadows. Sometime these shadows are desirable, and sometime they are not. There are ways to eliminate the shadows by adding an backer panel of colored vinyl or other materials such as aluminum or pvc.

Sometimes you don’t want your mission statement displayed in your lobby. You might only want the employees to see it so it might be better displayed in the conference room or in the employee lounge. There are limitless ways to display your company mission statement in your office. Creating a sign with acrylic and etched vinyl, like the one featured in this article is simple and understated. But maybe you want something stimulating and bold to create attention. We can use a bold colored vinyl applied directly to the wall, or we can digitally print and mount the mission statement to your wall.
