There are many different types of signage. Some signs, like Channel Letter Signs or 3D Signs, serve to tell a customer exactly where a business is located. Others, like Monument Signs are meant to let clients know about a company’s location when a business is located in a center with many other businesses. Gold Leaf Signs can be multi-functional, but generally are chosen by company’s who want to reflect class and elegance. ADA Signs and Directional Signs are meant to direct customers to a business and help them get around once they are inside.
With so many sign options, it can be difficult to determine which sign would be the best fit for a company. Sometimes, companies need more than one sign type. But which ones? And why? What sign type will make the most sense for my company while also sending a message that accurately represents who we are and what we do? At Landmark Signs, it is part of our job to make sure that you have these questions answered. With over 35 years of sign expertise, we take the time to get to individually know each company we work with to make sure the sign choices they make are the right ones. While we look forward to this one-on-one consultation, we also decided to begin a blog series that will give companies looking for signage an idea of what might be best for their company.
This week we are starting out with ADA Signs.
Why ADA Signs?
ADA Signs are the types of signs that are chosen to meet very specific needs. Many buildings are required by Federal and State laws to have ADA Signs. Even if laws do not require a building to have ADA Signs, it is important to take care of the needs of the clients entering your buildings. And making a business more navigable for customers who are disabled shows those customers that you care about them.
What are the Design Options?
ADA Signs can be made of a variety of materials. This includes various types of medals, woods, plastics, and even more. Not only that but the color options for this material and the lettering is numerous.
Did you know?
Many people assume that ADA Signs have to look a certain way that is the law requires. What this typically translates to in people’s minds is boring and inspirational. It’s true that there are several aspects of the ADA Sign look that are required and cannot be changed. For examples the braille must be in a certain place on the sign. But what many people do not realize is that many of these aspects are customizable. Color, letter, sizes, and symbols are just a few of the qualities that can be designed to reflect what is unique about your company.
