  • What if I am not quite sure what directory signs I want?

    Look through our products at the signage gallery. There are basically three directory sign types to choose from, each with their own interior sub variation; a sign without a fixture to simply hang on a wall, a digital sign with a surface mounted frame, and a pedestal style signs fixture. Once you have chosen a sign type, select your directory sign size and orientation based on the space where you plan to place your directory sign.

  • Non-interactive (contactless) or interactive digital solutions?

    A non-interactive directory (no touch or contactless) sign will be fine for most USA establishments with 50 or less tenants. Experience shows that touch is better than contactless for situations where there are many tenants. Thus search is required since not all the tenants can be listed on the screen signs. Good news is, we have both template directory signage styles available should you choose contactless design. One advantage of having interactive functionality, your guests can: pick a name to check for more information; add little post excerpts on your tenants; or, post photos with captions for individuals. Through it, people can get a little bit of background of those who they may be looking for before they continue.

  • Landscape or Portrait screen orientation?

    Directory Signs orientation (portrait or landscape) mostly depends upon what looks best for your application. We suggest a portrait signage system as they tend to look less like a TV screen. If you choose interactive template signs, then we strongly recommend portrait. Interactive templates require the touchable graphics to be no more than 48″ above the floor for ADA reasons.

  • How do I change my tenant listing?

    Three possible ways: If you choose AliveKey™ custom signs, you will use your desk computer free to access our content management file via the internet, and then publish to a thumb drive. You would then take the thumb drive to where the digital directory signs are located and plug the drive into the signs interior USB port on the frame or provided USB extension dongle. The changes happen automatically at that point. The second way is to provide an internet connection to the digital directory signs. You can then access AlivePulse™ (from a PC or mobile device with Internet access), and then publishing will sync directly to the sign automatically. The third way is to have us do all the changes. That is called AlivePulse Concierge™ signs. You still need an Internet connection to the digital directory in your office. You would send us an email with the change request and we take it from there.

  • How much power do I need for the system?

    Digital building directories signs will require normal 120 VAC power. For building directory signage, be sure your signage is not plugged into an outlet that is on a timed or switched circuit.


Jeff Heegard, St. Paul Minnesota Office Building

We are a small office and retail building located in St. Paul, Minnesota. Recently we remodeled our lobby and we struggled to find a cost effective solution that matched our new techie vibe. We were looking for a turn-key solution that was simple to manage and inexpensive to install. We bought ours from Digital Directory Express and it has added a great new look to our lobby and gives us an easy and quick way to direct patrons. Best of all, our tenants love it and it didn’t break the bank!
