Is a Company Nameplate Essential?

Is a Company Nameplate Essential?

Most businesses need some kind of sign or nameplate to let people know the name of the company. This is a practical way of delivering information to clients and the general public, and can make the building look more professional. A company nameplate or sign isn’t just great for branding and public image – in many cases it’s also the law.

If you run a limited company, it is a legal requirement to display the business name at any place you do business. This includes the registered office, and any additional offices, retail units or commercial premises. The only case an official company sign isn’t required is if you are running a company from home.

For most businesses, installing a company nameplate is essential so people know who they are dealing with. However there are also a range of benefits, and other types of businesses and sole traders also choose to display a company sign even when it is not a legal requirement. Here are some advantages of proudly displaying your business name.

Brand image

Whether the business is located in a busy city or a country village, brand image is incredibly important. When people walk past your office or shop, you need people to notice your business name. Visitors and passers-by will often make an impression of a company by its appearance and sign. A metal nameplate is sophisticated and lets people know you mean business!

Recognition

An attractive nameplate which is easy to read can also be helpful for visitors and clients. Your business may be located in a shared commercial building, so members of the general public, clients and potential clients need to recognise where to find you. A simple and stylish nameplate engraved on brass or stainless steel is a refined way to let people know where you are based.

Other uses

Versions of the nameplate can also be used around the office as well as an exterior sign. Personal nameplates on desks or outside offices are a great way to add prestige and let staff know where to find colleagues. In addition to looking professional, metal nameplates are functional and highly durable, and can withstand harsh conditions if needed.

Company nameplates are suitable for indoor or outdoor use, so are perfect for displaying at a front entrance of a building, or inside by the lifts. To find out more about the materials and customisation options, contact us today.
