Popular Materials for Custom Hotel Signs

When it comes to creating custom hotel signs, there are a variety of popular materials that can be used. Ultimately, the choice of material will depend on the hotel’s branding, budget, and desired look. With so many options available, hotels can create custom signs that look great and communicate their unique identity to guests.


Paper or cardstock signs are disposable and perfect for hotels needing a temporary solution for directional signs, policy signs, and do-not-disturb signs, among others. Quality is always key at Front Desk Supply, so paper signs are a perfect amenity for hotel guests that may want to take a reminder of their stay home with them.

Hotels can add their own flair to it with themed messages, custom colors, and double-sided designs.


Plastic is the ideal material for hoteliers seeking a simple and budget-friendly option. This material can create simple door signs from hanging door signs to larger standing tents or L-shaped signs. Plastic signs can be customized to match your hotel’s branding. Those who need extra budgeting may keep things simple with 1-4 colors, standardized fonts, and simple designs to effectively communicate hotel policies.

Front Desk Supply offers bendable signs. Signs are coated with an over-laminate instead of extruded plastic for a stronger, more durable sign that can withstand being bent. Signs come in a selection of thicknesses, including .020, .030, and .040 thickness, with the thinnest option being the most cost-effective and the thicker option being the best for a durable and long-lasting sign.
