As such, there are no rules or guidelines for hospital signage color. However, the use of colors as visual cues is a proven way to enhance wayfinding efficiency. Various studies have shown that cool colors like the blues and the blue-greens are more calming, so these colors soothe eyes and put people at ease because they bring a sense of tranquility.
Bright colors such as red and yellow, on the other hand, tend to raise anxiety levels or put on alert mode and must be reserved for hospital safety signage.
Children's Room Signs can be vibrant, though, because yellows and oranges may help the younger patients feel a little more cheerful, reducing their stress and anxiety.
From bright orange to soothing Gray, we offer 17 different color options with our Select-a-Color Engraved Sign. Colors work well when there is adequate contrast between the background and any colors used for text and pictographs.
Our in-stock Doctors' Signs are available in the ShowCase™ Sign pattern suitable for indoors and will last for years and years. If placed outdoors, these signs will last at least 3 years. Signs are sturdy and stand up to regular abuse. It's recommended to mount the sign in an area that isn't constantly exposed to sunlight and on a smooth surface receptive to adhesive. (Sign comes with Peel-and-stick foam adhesive.) Do not drill into the sign as it will crack. This video will take you through the construction and manufacturing of these acrylic signs.
Following sizes are available for vertically oriented hospital room name signs offered in plastic and aluminum -

There are several ways to mount the signs on doors, depending on your preference -
Mounting Holes and Screws: There are three hole-placements to choose from - two top holes, two side holes, four corner holes. Screws are included with most of these hole options. Mounting screws and holes are the most secure method of installation.
Foam Adhesive Strips: These are included with most of our door signs. Double-sided foam strips work well on clean and dry surfaces and secure the sign permanently. If the surface is dirty or porous, the bond will not work well.
Hook and Loop fastener strips (Velcro): Adhesive-backed Velcro strips are a clean option for those looking to change the position of their signs after installation. If rooms change regularly, you can easily take the sign off the surface and relocate it to a new location without creating any mess.
Magnetic strips: Magnetic strips are a great option in case the signs need to be relocated or replaced. However, the bond is not as strong, and therefore, magnetic strips are recommended for static surfaces only and not for moving surfaces like doors.
Wall Standout Bracket: The sturdy metal bracket allows you to attach the sign perpendicularly to the wall.
Suction Cups: Hang your sign on a glass or metal surface with suction cups. The hooks are threaded through the holes.
Tube Adhesive: High-Bond adhesive bonds well to a flat surface like concrete, walls, plastics, metal, or wood. The adhesive takes 8 hours for a full cure but will achieve excellent adhesion after only 10 minutes.
