The Interchangeability of your Directory Sign

A common requirement for building directory signs, is that the names and numbers be interchangeable and replaceable. Some types of directory signs are easier to update than others. Building management will always want to weigh the aesthetic appeal of their sign against the ease and cost of making updates to the sign. While perhaps more attractive, an etched aluminum sign will have a higher cost and amount of work associated with updating an entry than with a sign where you can simply remove a plastic covering and slip in a new piece of paper.

A major factor, therefore, in considering the type of sign that will work for your building, is the amount of turnover that their is. In a building with a stable line-up of tenants, management might feel more comfortable installing more attractive and permanent directory signage. If your directory is for an apartment building where many tenants are changing every year, you may want to focus on ease of changeability.
