Custom Bathroom Signs

Custom bathroom signs are ordered by a number of businesses due to the fact that they don’t want their bathroom signage to look just like every other one like it. While there are rules that need to be followed for these signs, you should be aware that you do have quite a number of options when it comes to customizing these signs. You should also be aware that some of the perceived limitations you have for these signs can actually be skirted with a little ingenious thinking.

To help you get the most out of your customization options when it comes to bathroom signs, here a few of the more commonly asked questions when it comes to these kinds of bathroom markings and the answers to these questions:

What can I customize on my bathroom signs? – there are a number of features that you can customize on these signs, and some of these include the copy on these signs, the size, the color combinations, and the font used for these. Of course, when you customize these, you need to follow very specific rules that govern these very same features.

What rules are these that need to be followed? – the rules that you need to follow when it comes to these signs are the ones that the ADA has set for signage. These ADA rules for signs state that you need to have features like tactile letters and subsequent braille translations of the sign’s content. These also include rules for color contrast, spacing of characters, material finish, and the position of these characters on these signs.

If there are so many rules to be followed, how can these signs be customized? – the customization options you have are subject to rules set by the government, but they can still be customized, only that this is done within a set of guidelines. You still have several choices to make, such as what color contrast to choose, what size sign to create, what sans serif fonts to use, and even what material these signs will be made out of.

If I wanted a custom bathroom sign that is not compliant with these rules, what will happen? – non-compliance to the rules set by the government is essentially breaking the law. You need to comply with these guidelines or else you will not only find yourself being penalized and fined, but you will also need to spend more money on new, compliant signs to replace your non-compliant ones. This will end up costing you more money.

Is there a way for me to get the kind of customized signs I want without getting into hot water with the law? – there is a way to be compliant and to still have the kind of totally customized bathroom signs you want, and that is to use ADA compliant bathroom signs on the side of the door of the bathroom (which is where compliant signs are supposed to be mounted) and a customized, non-compliant one on the door itself or above it.
