Exterior Wayfinding Signage

Getting from Point A to Point B and beyond is made easier with wayfinding signage. At Parvin-Clauss Sign Company, we specialize in directional signage for a variety of industries.  Some signs include tamper resistant detailed maps.  Others require reflective copy or internal illumination.   Communicating succinctly and creatively to your customers, parishioners, students or residents is key.  

Below are examples of exterior wayfinding signs and the type of sign materials that are eye catching, practical and durable.

Recreational Areas

Many wayfinding signs in recreational areas can take a pounding from both the elements and an energetic clientele. Examples below show solutions for this – High Pressure Laminate (HPL) graphics. HPL signage is durable, can withstand the elements and is graffiti resistant.

The example below shows vibrant colors with an HPL material for the village of Oakbrook Terrace.

Office Campuses

Signs that are positioned within an office campus need to serve both pedestrians and vehicle traffic. Crisp, clean graphics make wayfinding simple for visitors.


Sign space on city streets can be limited. Often, municipalities find that incorporating directional information is best done using light poles and ornamental displays.

Educational Facilities

High School and college campuses greet thousands of visitors every year for athletic, musical and other educational events.  Keeping traffic moving swiftly leads to a pleasant visit during the week and on game day!

Industrial Campuses

Large industrial campuses need to direct both vehicles and semi truck trailers.  With some businesses operating 24/7, illuminated wayfinding is critical.

Directional signs can be simple aluminum faces with vinyl graphics to illuminated sign cabinets with acrylic lettering and masonry bases.  Whatever is appropriate for your company or organization, Parvin-Clauss can assist you in creating an effective, creative and well received wayfinding program!
