Wayfinding Graphics & Signage Systems

Directional wayfinding signage is integral to building interiors, exteriors & behind-the-scenes rooms. Don’t forget outdoor monument signs!

Let’s help you guide the way.
Graphics Are a Great Guide

Directional graphics are functional while offering creative possibilities.

Adding numbers to hallway graphics, in stairwells, or on floors, help your building guests remember their floor or where they need to go!

There are different ways to help them keep moving and we welcome an opportunity to assist.

Randy & Bruce have saved the day for me too many times to count. It truly shows that customer service is their #1 priority!

Where There's A Will There's Way .... Finding

Interior wayfinding can be colorful, and installed on the walls. In this example from the Chicago Literacy Alliance, the directional signage has been printed and installed on the stairwell walls.

No matter the direction you want to take it, let’s discuss the best solutions to help your visitors. Give us a ring: 312.266.8228.

Which Way to Go?

A Rare Find

Here in Chicago, wayfinding signage is common throughout the metro area and in commercial buildings. In fact, you probably don’t think twice about it. We can customize wayfinding signage to ensure your image is consistent throughout your hotel, college campus or healthcare institution. Our team can assist with wayfinding in existing buildings or throughout your design and build phases.

“Cushing has always pulled through for us when we needed it the most. From the mass amounts of directional signage needed when the Blackhawks were in the Stanley Cup to more recent events like NHL Fan Fair. The quality of the product has great and we would definitely recommend their services.”

Interior Wayfinding Signs

Navigating a healthcare institution can be daunting; directional signs make it easy to find the cafeteria, gift shop, and patient rooms.

Construction Sites

Help workers find what they need and aware of dangerous areas. Visitor access, interior signs for subcontractors, hard hat areas, should all be printed on reflective tape when construction is underway and electrical wiring is not yet installed.

Universities and Schools
Turn a maze of classrooms into a very easy to access set of rooms. Include safety signs, access to emergency care access or the Dean’s office.  Some schools have several gyms and host sports tournaments every weekend. Add school spirit to that directional signage while you direct them to the hot dog stand.


Hospitality and Dining
Help your patrons easily find restrooms or private dining areas. What hotel doesn’t have multiple meeting rooms named after past presidents or classic local landmarks?

Floor Graphics
An exciting new tool very popular in the world of retail, commercial; even for healthcare and education. Consider no skid lamination and the many ways you can add useful directional signs where hallways need to be clear and free of obstruction (or when a room is so wide that a sign cannot plausibly hang on a wall.)  Ideal for shopping malls, schools, industrial warehouses or hospitals.

“I cannot thank everyone at Cushing enough for your help, support and amazing printing over the years. You consistently help me brainstorm the best printing for an idea, meet many short deadlines, and provide amazing quality printed products. I love working with you!”
Exterior Wayfinding Signs

Hospital Emergency Room
When it is a critical situation, your patients will thank you for making it easy to find these services.

Cities and Parks
Post trivia about your metropolitan area, use directional signage to point to cultural institutions or draw attention to landmarks.

Commercial Real Estate Solutions
Have available space for lease or sale? Guide your prospect to find out more. Statistics show that a large fraction of people use external signage as their number one method for seeking rental property, in the neighborhood they have already chosen.

Construction Sites
Visitor parking arrows, access to job trailers, hard hat areas, should all be printed on reflective tape for the shorter days of winter.

Lead the Way, Just for Today

Wayfinding does not have to be permanent. Trade show and event planning printing to a commercial real estate property showing, we can help with temporary signs that achieve your goals.

Office Door Signs and More

This may not be indoor directional signage but can help guests and visitors in large offices. As people walk through a larger office, they may have a room number and not much else.

Consider individual office signs and placards (such as the one pictured) to help people navigate your space.
