Wall Murals

Wall Murals Give New Life to Your Interiors—Your Wall, Your Story

Tell your story your way, on your walls! Make use of the prime real estate on your empty walls to tell your story in a unique way with wall murals.  

Plain walls can be transformed into works of art or to portray powerful messages about your business philosophy. They can even be used to increase brand awareness and sales by acting as an indoor billboard.

Here are a few ways wall murals can transform your Atlanta business

  • Unused walls can be transformed and set the mood for your space. Mural wallpaper creates a huge ‘wow’ factor with your customers.   
  • Create a focal point or statement wall designed to mimic real life scenes or textures. We can replicate the look of brick, stone, or other textures that are so life-like you may need to touch the wall to see if it’s real or not! Wood textured looks can create a rustic, relaxed feel in a waiting area. A brick textured mural can be the perfect backdrop for a bakery, while a 3D wall mural of a lively Paris street scene may be ideal for a café or French restaurant. Designs can be customized to reflect your brand image and enhance the aesthetic appeal of the lobby or waiting area. Our design team can work with your architect or interior designer to create a look that enhances your interiors.
  • Just about any wall, flat surface—even cracked and peeling walls– can be almost instantly transformed with mural wallpaper.     
  • Tell your story in a new way, with depth and dimension. Amazing 3D wall murals with high resolution imagery make a huge impact, especially when paired with products from your company. The innovative life-like designs draw customers into the picture. You can almost smell that new leather in that sports car mural at your local dealership and now you can’t wait to take a test drive.
  • Strategically placing wall murals near checkout counters add an element of interest and engage customers as they wait to be served. And they may inspire those important last-minute purchases.   
  • Historic buildings or images of famous Atlanta scenes can illustrate your sense of community spirit and make a huge impact, especially when using 3D wall mural technology. We can even use your images or photos to create a custom design—your walls, your story!

Monument Signs

What Are The Different Types of Monument Signs?

Just as monuments are used to mark significant historic landmarks, custom monument signs establish your company’s identity and mark your location. And often these signs become landmarks in the community!   

These significant, permanent outdoor signs can sit directly in front of your building to welcome customers to your front entrance or they can be placed at a nearby intersection to let drivers know your business is nearby.  

The beauty and solid look of these signs heightens interest in your property.    

Here are some of the many different types of monument signs in Atlanta:

  • Ground level signs with a solid base. Most monument signs sit on the ground and are typically about five feet in height. This is the ideal height to catch the attention of people passing by. A solid foundation serves as the base to hold your horizontal or vertical sign displaying your company’s name and logo.   
  • Pillar-style monument signs. Often used by stores, shopping malls, hotels, hospitals, and the like, two identical pillars made of cement, brick, or stone house the company sign. Sign shapes can be customized to be square, rectangular, round, or oval. Signs can also be two-sided, doubling your messaging potential.
  • Stately materials add to the look and longevity.  Sturdy, weather resistant materials are chosen to ensure your sign looks good as new today and down the road. Choose from beautiful materials such as stone, brick, concrete, wood and fabricated metal. Materials can be used on the base or as part of the sign as an accent detail.  
  • Custom monument signs can be trendy, rustic, modern or corporate—you choose the look that best reflects your brand. A resort in the mountains may opt for the rustic appeal of wood, while a corporate head office may choose modern or classic materials for their sign. Our design team can work with you to select materials and a monument sign design which best reflects your company’s image and personality.    
  • Digital displays, LED lights, illuminated signs. Showcase yourbusiness 24/7with the benefit of an illuminated sign or one with messaging technology. Customized monument signs are a powerful advertising tool to get noticed day or night.   
  • Garden signs. Custom monument sign designs can include a planting area on one or both sides of your sign. Wouldn’t this be a perfect design idea for a landscaping company or a garden center? Businesses like hotels and corporate head offices can also use the garden enhanced signs to add a sense of welcome and beauty to their property.

lobby signs

5 Benefits of Lobby Signs You Cannot Ignore

The importance of lobby signs is often overlooked and yet these signs can enhance customer experience, increase brand loyalty, and even boost sales!

Many people feel uncomfortable walking into a corporate office, medical clinic, or hotel for the first time. It’s like being the new kid at school when you have no clue about where to go or who to see. Office lobby signs are like that special teacher who was there to meet you on your first day and show you around. You see the sign, it directs you to where you need to go, and suddenly you relax. You know you are in the right place.   

5 Benefits of Lobby Signs to Boost Your Atlanta Business   

  1. Make a good first impression. Your beautiful sign is like a beacon, welcoming customers to your office. It also helps create a good first impression with your customers.

  3. Enhance your corporate image and increase brand loyalty. The use of colors, materials, graphics, and overall design gives customers a feel for who you are and what you do. Reception signs, lobby wall signs, murals and vinyl graphics can work together to create consistent messaging. Custom lobby signs speak volumes about your company and help build customer loyalty. People are likely to tell others about their positive experience when they are proud to deal with your company. Word-of mouth is the best form of advertising, after all!

ADA Signs

Why ADA Signs Are Important For Your Business

An ADA compliant sign is not just important for your business and your image, it is the law. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires use of these signs for every permanent room or space in a commercial or public building. The ADA helps remove barriers for over 2.5 million Americans who are visually impaired, including blindness. 

The signs must adhere to a set of standards as well as be placed in specific locations as they pertain to safety.

Schools, churches, and businesses must have ADA compliant signs to ensure their building is accessible to everyone ( – Chapter 7, section 703). Determining what is a permanent room and understanding the complexities of the ADA can be overwhelming. We have experience helping business owners in Atlanta adhere to ADA signage requirements.     

What Does an ADA Sign Look Like and Where Is it Used?

ADA compliant signs use high contrast colors for optimal readability, along with tactile braille and raised lettering. There are specific guidelines outlined in the code in terms of sign design, lettering, colors, spacing and more.

  • ADA Signs are used indoors and outside. Braille signs can be used to mark elevators in a parking garage, or an ADA restroom sign can be used to mark a self-standing washroom facility such as at a public park or stadium. Although in some cases these outdoor signs may not be mandatory by law, their use shows that companies care about their patrons and have gone above and beyond to ensure their safety and well being. They also enhance the guest experience and the image of your company.   
  • Certain areas of your building may require ADA compliant signs, but perhaps not every office or space. Determine which rooms are permanent and then make a list of places where ‘Life Safety Signs’ are required. This includes exit signs at doors or stairways, fire exits, floor designation signs and ADA restroom signs.  
  • The code details the use of specific font sizes and high contrast colors. There is some leeway that permits companies to include certain brand elements, as long as they meet the mandatory specifications outlined in the code.
