Engraved SignsEngraved signs are used by many companies for their signage needs due to the fact that these can be easily customized to fit specifications for ADA compliance.

Sign DesignerThere are quite a few companies who choose to go with signs that are ready made for their business needs. There are also a few who put together their own signs with the use of letters and numbers that they stick to a substrate or a tile, which they then use to mark doors with. What they might not be aware of, is that even when this is an easy way to make signs, and a generally cheap one at that, this is also not a good way to make signs.

The reason why sign design should always be considered when you create signs for your business is that there are rules to be followed for this. These are rules set by the government and are a must if you do not want to get into hot water. Some of the things that can happen when you go against the rules set by the ADA when it comes to signage includes penalties, fines, and of course, the need to still have compliant signs crafted for your office or business signs.

Online Sign CompanyWith the rise in the usage of the internet and the dependence of many on what they can find there, it is no wonder that more and more businesses are putting up websites to facilitate this. This also means that this will make decision making more difficult when it comes to purchasing since you will have more stores and manufacturers to choose from. This is where you will need to be more discerning.

You have to know that not all websites that you can buy from are actually trustworthy. Take for example the many posts and images you can find online of people ordering clothes, shoes, and other items online and them not getting what was advertised. This happens when a site that you order from is not trustworthy and does not have the kind of reputation that spans decades.

Serif vs Sans Serif FontsOne of the things you need to consider when you are having door signs for office use made by your chosen manufacturer is the font that will be used on these. Of course, when these signs are being designed, this will be one of the things you will need to discuss with your designer. If you are using the designer provided by the manufacturer to create your sign designs for these, then you will need to find out what fonts would be ideal for your business.

You should be aware that your signs are subject to the rules set by the government, which is found in the ADA Standards for Accessible Design. According to these guidelines, there are some fonts that can and cannot be used on these signs, especially if these are used to mark doors that lead to important rooms in the building. To quote one of the rules on this list of guidelines “Characters shall not be italic, oblique, script, highly decorative, or of other unusual forms.”

Sign Designer for ADA Compliant Door SignsA lot of people believe that designing signs for their doors is really easy. How difficult could it be, right? These are just signs that you use on doors, whether these are numbers, names, or whatnot. Yet, contrary to popular belief, designing signs for doors, or any signs for public use for that matter, is not as cut and dried a task as most people tend to believe.

What is not evident from the start is that while door signs do serve a singular purpose, and that is to show people what room it is marking, any design just won’t do. There is such a thing called compliance that needs to be adhered to, and non-adherence can actually cost business owners and companies quite a bit of money. This compliance issue has something to do with government rules that cover everything from walkways, to entrances, to exits, and yes, to signs.
