Wall signs are signs attached to a building. They may be exterior signs or interior signs, though most sign codes only regulate exterior signage. There are a variety of exterior wall signs, ranging from signs painted directly on walls, to printed signs, to dimensional letters, to illuminated channel letters, to illuminated sign cabinets.
Today, most wall signs have florescent or LED lighting. Sign cabinets can have several different types of sign faces, including embossed and painted polycarbonate pan faces, flat polycarbonate faces with printed or vinyl graphics, routed aluminum faces, and flex faces.
Interior Wall Signs
Interior wall signs are located inside a building. They are made from various substrates, including various metals and plastics. They include dimensional letters, way finding and directional signs, ADA signs, room designation signs, plaques, and building directories.
