What makes a good door sign for a school classroom?

When it comes to choosing classroom door signs, there are a few key factors you need to keep in mind. The first is the purpose of the sign. What message do you want to communicate? Is the sign meant to be used for a class / teacher name or department identification? Once you have determined its purpose, you can then begin to consider other factors. Size of the sign will determine how big the font is and how far away teachers, students and parents can comfortably read it. You will also need to think about where the will be placed. ie: On classroom walls or doors. Is it a solid wall / glass panel etc. Thankfully this guide will make it an easy way to determine the right solution.

How big should my classroom door sign be?

Classroom signs come in all shapes and sizes, so it’s important to choose the right one for your school. Make sure to pick a sign that is big enough to be seen from across the room, but not so big that it takes up too much space. Typically, a classroom sign is around 300 x 60mm (longest side is the length of a sheet of A4 paper) for normal viewing distance. However we have the capability to make any product size or shape you may require so please feel free to get creative. Maybe even get the children to produce colour designs, turning the process into an arts & crafts learning lesson, which we can then turn into signs for you.

What should my classroom signs say? aka. Classroom signs ideas.

Typically your classroom nameplate should include your name and the class name you teach. It’s may also be a good idea to list the subject you teach. This will help visitors know where they are in the school and what classes are being taught in that room. If you have any other titles or responsibilities (librarian, technology coordinator), those can be listed on the classroom sign as well.

If you wanted to include the school logo, an image specificly designed for your class (eg. An oak tree for Oak Class), or any other details to suit your school… we can help you.

We email a design proof to you with every order so you can be confident in the design and make any amendments before we start manufacture.

Acrylic Classroom Signs

The most popular material is clear acrylic, which has the print / design on the rear. As they are printable signs with the graphics on the rear, the front of the sign is easily wiped clean. This style looks great with any décor. Please note the price is slightly higher than the other materials but the overall look is very professional, with the advantage that the graphics are away from unwanted attention.

Aluminium Composite Class Signs

If you’re looking for something slightly cheaper, aluminium composite is a great option. It’s is 3mm thick panel with aluminium faces and a recycled plastic core. It won’t rust or corrode over time and the graphics on the face are protected by a clear laminate film. Typically we use a matt laminate which reduces the glare from overhead lights, making the sign easier to read.

Interchangeable Door Signs

Finally, our aluminium frame with a plastic insert is perfect for interchangeable door signs – simply update your sign as often as you like! The frame is screw / tape fixed to the classroom wall or door. The engraved plastic insert can then slide in / out of the frame as required. If you are worried about the security of the signs, we also supply end caps which will secure the insert in place and save you any worry of them going missing.

If you ever want to change the insert on the sign, simple contact us and we will supply another insert for you (small cost will apply).

What shapes and sizes are available?

Classroom door signs come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit any space. We have standard rectangle and square shapes, as well as circular and triangular options. Our sizes range from tiny to massive (we make them to any size you like), so you can find the perfect fit for your school. Typically a classroom door sign for a teacher is around 300 x 60mm (30 x 6cm).

The only limitation on size / shape is with our interchangeable door signs as they come as standard at 255 x 55mm (25.5 x 5.5cm).

    • Paul Daly

      Thank you so much Signet Signs. Sam and Kieran were awesome. We are a new business and needed some guidance with our designs and signs. We were guided every step of the way with advice from absolute professionals and nothing was too much trouble even when we asked for the almost impossible on a really tight time frame. Cannot recommend these guys and this company enough.

    • Ian Barker

      Of 5 quotes obtained Signet were the best on price. All the people that I dealt with either by phone or e-mail were polite and very knowledgeable of the products that they sell. I would definitely recommend to others in need of this product or service.

    • Gyoury Self

      Very happy with the site boards we ordered! Materials and printing to a high standard – very professional finish. Excellent service too. Friendly staff and good communications, so all went very smoothly. We were lucky enough to find the company through Google Search and would definitely recommend them to others.

    • Suzie Hellier

      Really great quality and service from Signet Signs. They came and helped us re-do all of the signs in the GP surgery. I would definitely recommend them and have used them since for additional work.

    • Winterbourne Early Years Pre-school

      Fantastic, professional service from beginning to end with all from Signet. We are now the proud owners of a fantastic board to promote our preschool. Highly recommend this company – fast, efficient ,informative and easy to discuss requirements with very helpful staff.

      I was very happy with the level of service that I received from Signet Signs. The customer service was excellent – including the re-working of artwork prior to manufacture to get exactly what we wanted. We (Pitch Architects) will certainly use them again!
