What You Need to Know About Glass Door Signs

Glass doors are great. They look professional, modern, and expensive enough that you can demonstrate to customers, clients, and staff that you’re willing to invest in your business. But glass doors, like most other doors, often need signs of some description. Are signs harder to affix to glass doors? Do they look different? What do you need to know about glass door signs?

What is door signs

People need to know what’s on the other side of that door. Any door. If you run a business or office of some kind in the Atlanta area of Georgia, you can’t have people bursting into rooms in the hopes that the person or thing they seek is on the other side. You need to tell people what’s beyond the door. That’s why you need a door sign. Some common door signs include:

  • Door name plates
  • Room number signs
  • Restroom signs
  • Room signs by name

  • Sliding door signs
  • Door message signs

  • ‘No Soliciting’ signs
  • Braille signs

Glass Door Signs

Many (perhaps most) doors are made of wood. Others are metal. But glass doors are special. Whether they’re frosted for privacy or clear for transparency, they add a touch of class to any room. But glass doors still need signs so what’s the best way to affix a sign to a glass door? Usually this is done with etching. Etching is great for a few reasons.

First, it looks classy. This keeps it in line with the glass door look, so you can really pull a room together with a consistent aesthetic. Second, etching is durable. It’s unlikely to peel off and it’s scratch resistant so you know it will look good for a long time. And because it can last so long, etched glass door signs convey permanence. If your name has been etched on to the glass door of your office, people know you will be there for the long haul.


Other Glass Door Signs

Etching is a great option but it’s not your only option when it comes to glass door signs. For temporary signs or signs that you don’t want to spend that much money on, you can get a plain placard that can be affixed to the surface of the glass door by a suction cup or two. The sign can also hang from the suction cups via wire or twine. Another option is a plaque that is either nailed onto the wall beside the door or that is affixed to a wooden frame around the glass on a door.
