Property ownership, whether it’s multifamily housing or commercial property, is one of the greatest investments an individual or corporation can make. But it is not without its requirements, and one of the most important additions to add to your property is building management signs.
There are many rules for signs in NY, with departments such as HPD (Housing Preservation and Development) requiring specific HPD signs in each and every building, in order to make sure those in the building have rapid access to information, as well as many other rules for ADA signs and other building management signs in NYC.

Depending on the type of property you own, there may be a number of different signs you need. At Brooklyn Signs, we carry all those required by the HPD and NYC Department of Buildings. These include:
No Parking Signs
These simple signs help make it clear who is able to park at your property and who is not. They are an important sign for both building owners and businesses, clearly marketing the areas that are and are not available for parking.
No Trespassing Signs
Another important safety sign, the No Trespassing sign is a building management sign that is critical for ensuring that those that are not allowed on your property know that you are watching for them.
Boiler Room Signs
HPD requires that you post the name and location of each person with a key to the boiler room, which both needs to stay protected from unwanted visitors, and available in the event of an emergency.
There are many different types of mandatory OHSA signs used in building management. Set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, these signs are placed in many different areas of the building in order to keep workers and passerby safe.
Local Law #16
Local law 16 signs are signs that indicate floor information to visitors, with a “You are here” and a direction to the stairs and elevator. They are used for fire safety and need to be made a very specific way to comply with NYC guidelines.
When someone enters your lobby, you want them to know immediately where to go and what to do. That’s what lobby signs provide – direction and guidance that helps those entering your property know where they are and where they need to go.
Egress Map Signs
The egress map is like a floor layout, and has similar needs to the Local Law 16 signs. They are also an important type of building management sign, and are mandatory in many different types of buildings.
Finally, those that travel around your building need to clearly see what floor they’re on so that they know they left the elevator or stairs in the right place.
All of these signs come in either aluminum or acrylic, two materials that look nice and can hold their own against normal wear and tear and the type of weather we get here in Brooklyn.
We also recognize that you may have other reasons to post signs in, on, and around your building. If we don’t have the exact kind you need available, we can carry out a custom design to create any number of building management signs.

Frequently asked questions and resources
What is Your Return Policy?
Your satisfaction is our goal. While we cannot offer returns on most custom products, we will accept any returns when it is our error, and we have created something outside of scope. Any time we have made an error, we will accept a return and discuss the idea of creating a new sign in its place. If you ever receive a broken sign, or you find that a sign isn’t working properly (such as a neon sign), please let us know right away.
What Signs Are Best For Indoors?
All signs last longer when they are inside of your property. Some signs, like neon signs and foam board signs, are almost exclusively meant for indoors. However, metal signs, vinyl signs, aluminum signs, wood signs, and nearly all the signs listed above for outdoor signs also work great as indoor signs depending on your needs.
What Signs Are Best For Outdoors?
There are many different signs that are durable enough for the outdoors. Some of the best materials include wooden signs, aluminum signs, plastic signs, and PVC signs. Banners and vinyl signs can also be great outdoors, but may not be meant to provide you with a permanent sign solution as the weather can cause staining and wrinkles. Many types of lighted signs, such as channel letters and light box signs, are meant for the outdoors.
What Are “Wraps” and How Do They Work?
Wraps are pieces of thin, self-adhesive vinyl. They fit on flat surfaces, such as metal and glass. They can come in black and white or full color, and they pop from whatever surface they are affixed to. We create primarily vehicle wraps and window wraps, branding your property, cars, and trucks and making sure that they provide you with a rolling advertisement that is designed to last.
How Can I Care For My Signs So They Last Longer?
Every sign has its own unique needs. Small metal signs need only be wiped down when it is dusty, and can withstand heavy cleaners. Banners can only be cleaned with gentle soap and water, and can only be rolled up – never folded – or they will have permanent creases and possibly damage the lettering. It is best to ask us after you order your sign, and we’ll gladly give you the information you need to continue to care for your sign.
What Are Sign Rentals?
Creating a custom sign takes time and effort. But not everyone needs a custom sign. Often we’re contacted by those looking for everything from common and unique signs that they can use for a variety of projects – from filming movies to creating a theme at weddings, and more.
That’s why we have many different sign rental options available. We have unique bathroom signs, “OPEN” signs, grand opening signs, adult signs (for themed events, plays, and movies) and more. We can’t guarantee that we have every sign in stock, but we do have a huge selection of sign rentals to choose from. Contact us to find out If we have a sign available, and what it would cost to create the sign if we don’t.
Do You Offer Design Services?
Yes. If you have an idea, but need someone to design the sign for you, we can help. We have expert design services with decades of expertise that can create beautiful custom signs that are specific to your needs. We also work with legal and regulatory signs, and can create signs that are easy to read and long lasting.
