Types of Nameplate Signs

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 nameplate 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 Signs, such as boiler room signs, which are expected to be clearly identifiable in the event of the emergency. 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. 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.
