Floor Signs & Graphics

Lavastar’s commitment to quality has made us a go-to provider of floor signs and graphics in London and throughout the UK since our founding in 2015. In that time, we have provided durable, high-quality floor graphics and signs to brands both big and small. 

Whether you’re looking to improve wayfinding, quickly and effectively communicate promotions and information, improve aesthetics or have a unique plan for your graphics – our precise replication of your designs, or bespoke packages including access to the expertise of our in-house graphic designers, can bring your project to life. We always work to deliver the calibre of product that your project deserves.

Although we know that some projects can suit a more ‘off-the-shelf’ product (the rapid requirement for instantly recognisable covid-signage a few years ago, for example), we are committed to fully understanding the look and feel that makes your brand special – and will always make sure that your custom floor signs (indoor or external), graphics and decals properly reflect the brand your customers love.

You can reach out to one of our floor sign and floor graphic specialists today, and we’ll help you explore Lavastar’s bespoke packages, and help you decide the best options for your project.

 

What are floor signs and floor graphics?

There are almost as many types of floor sign and floor graphic as there are floors, and although we’ve produced custom floor signs for a huge number of uses, the most common tend to be for promotional, informational, or simply for wayfinding or decoration. What all of our signage has in common, however, is that all of them are about communication – and if you’re looking for indoor or external floor signs or graphics, then you likely have something you need to say.

  • Promotional: – these will tend to be, though are not always, for short term advertising or decoration; for conferences, for sales, for product launches, and often need to catch the eye and deliver an offer or message in a literal blink of an eye. They need to pull the eye down and keep it there for long enough to say what you need (and hopefully leave the reader happy to have seen it).
  • Informational: – floor signs and graphics of this type don’t need to have the same wow-factor as their promotional cousins, but they still need to pack information into a single glance. The world is now familiar with the one way system and two metre distancing floor signs, but what they may not know is the amount of design time that goes into the best informational signage (it’s this kind of expertise and experience that Lavastar brings to a project).
  • Wayfinding: – you’ll have experienced examples of this kind of floor signage and floor graphics in hospitals – they’re the colour-coded lines that stop you ending up in the maternity ward for an optometrist appointment. Not all lines are born equal, however, and the best wayfinding projects will take your brand into account as much as your building.
  • Decorative: – decorative floor signs and graphics are some of the easiest to do and the hardest to do right. They’re not just about making use of a blank space, they’re about using that blank space to say the right thing about your business, or to inspire the right feeling in your visitors.

What are floor signs and floor graphics made from?

Lavastar provides a range of adhesive printed floor signs and graphics, from shop floor vinyl decals to custom branded lino and a range of external solutions for stone, cobbles and tarmac. The most common materials for floor graphics include:

  • Vinyl: – among the most durable and the most common materials for floor signs, vinyl floor signs are made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride), a synthetic polymer of plastic. 
  • Photoluminescent vinyl: – charged by natural or artificial lights, photoluminescent vinyl, or ‘glow-in-the-dark’ vinyl is a treated form of standard PVC (typically using zinc sulphide or strontium aluminate) which is commonly used in emergency signage (such as emergency wayfinding floor signs or graphics).
  • Lino: – while it has many of the same properties as vinyl, lino is actually a solidified mix of linseed oil (linoxyn), resin, sawdust and mineral fillers, which can make it an excellent choice for eco-friendly floor signs and graphics.

Our commitment to delivering what your project needs means that the materials we use will differ from project to project depending on what you’re trying to achieve and where it needs to be installed. For example, though outdoor installations often use the same materials as indoor projects, outdoor floor signage requires a secondary lamination process that helps it to deal with the additional wear-and-tear and weathering it will face outdoors.

At Lavastar, we provide a free site survey; this helps us make sure that you get the product that suits your needs (and also helps us to reduce unforeseen problems and keep timescales to a minimum).
