Order Professional Nameplates from Brooklyn Signs

Nameplates are a type of sign commonplace in most offices. These signs are an invaluable tool for helping label and identify rooms, offices, and buildings. They are also often used as apartment number signs. They can be used indoors or outdoors depending on the material, and can be designed to be ADA compliant. The standard size name plate is 2" x 14".

These signs, however, do not necessarily need to be designed to meet any standard requirement. Some businesses choose to have larger or smaller nameplate signs. Others may want to consider a unique typeface, design, or even material. Most signs are made of one of the following:

  • Acrylic (Plastic)
  • Metal (Bronze, Copper, Brass, Aluminum)

Most nameplates are engraved onto these materials, but they can also be cut lettered and digitally printed. They can have colors, they can have backgrounds – there are opportunities for companies to brand themselves using more custom nameplates that match the look of their buildings.

While these signs can be placed on mounts that are screwed into the wall, other office door signs use double sided VHB tape. The tape is removable, so if you need to change a sign over a door, there will be no harm to the underlying door finishes.

Door signs are also unique, in that they may need to be ordered often as an office space or company responds to turnover. Because of that, Brooklyn Signs is able to save your design instructions, so that if you do decide you need a new sign, we can quickly re-create the same style and send it to you right away for installation.

These signs are used across a wide range of property types, including corporate offices, banks, building owners, hospitals, hotels, universities, schools, and colleges. They are traditionally affordably priced and can be purchased in bulk or one at a time.

Benefits of Office Door Nameplate Signs

Nameplates have always been a sign of professionalism, frequently used in office complexes to identify offices, and as door signs across numerous industries to provide room numbers or information to incoming individuals. Some are also required by the HPD, such as boiler room signs, which are expected to be clearly identifiable in the event of the emergency. These signs have several advantages, including:

Modern and Customized Look

Standard nameplates already have a modern appearance that is seen throughout buildings in NYC, especially in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Because they can also be customized, they are often a net positive to the appearance of your property.


Door numbers are often more permanent, but traditional name plate signs can be removed or replaced without damaging the door or wall. This is an advantage in areas where change is common.


Door signs are important for the efficiency of a building. It is necessary for those visiting a property to be able to find who they’re looking for quickly. Office door signs provide that, and are thus a critical tool in the flow of people within your building.

For door signs that may be at risk for the elements, there are also outdoor-safe door signs that will withstand rain, snow, and moisture. All of these signs are also easy to clean and, depending on the material, may be fingerprint resistant.

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.
