Erie Custom Signs: Truly Customized ADA Signage

There are many rules under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that regulate compliance standards for ADA signage in facilities of all types. What you may not know is there’s a fair amount of flexibility when it comes to design. It’s just a matter of finding a fabricator capable of tailoring signs to your exact needs.  

And that’s where Erie Custom Signs comes in!

At Erie Custom Signs, we fabricate ADA-compliant signs to your exact specifications, based on design ideas, choices, and more. 

By partnering with us, you benefit from working with a team of experts who use top-grade machines and a wide selection of materials to produce high-quality, ADA-compliant signage. Rest assured, we go above and beyond to ensure each display has the desired look and feel, along with the characteristics that allow anyone to read it with ease.  

With Erie Custom Signs, you get truly customized ADA signage—and a valuable resource for all your ADA-sign-related questions. That’s because we’re here to provide the signs and knowledge you need.

How to Select ADA-Compliant Fonts

A display must include several elements for it to be considered ADA compliant. One of the most important and misunderstood of these elements is font. Although the ADA doesn’t explicitly state what fonts are permitted, it does outline certain guidelines. For example, all important text must be in a sans serif font with no italics or overly bold lettering. 

Although our team is happy to make font recommendations whenever necessary, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with font rules ahead of time. That way, you can note the desired font when you place your order.

How Custom ADA Signage Benefits Businesses of All Types

All businesses and organizations are subject to the rules outlined in the ADA. However, there are several benefits to ordering unique signs that meet compliance guidelines. Though signage may not seem like it would have a significant impact, the fact is it can go a long way toward improving any space.  

Erie Custom Signs routinely works with sign shops to produce specially designed and branded ADA-compliant signage for a variety of markets. This allows end users to obtain displays that fit their brand identity and unique specifications. Plus, it enables our partners to become a one-stop location for all their clients’ signage needs.

When and Why Sign Shops Should Outsource Orders

If you’re a sign shop owner, chances are you know there’s value in breaking into the ADA signage market. And because of this, you’re eager to expand your offerings to include ADA signs. However, trying to fabricate such signs in-house may not be practical, as it requires extensive training and additional equipment. Instead, a better option may be forming a partnership with a third-party fabricator that already has ADA expertise.

Discover when you should outsource sign orders to a third-party fabricator.  

What Guidelines to Follow When Installing ADA Signage

The ADA does not just provide guidelines for what characteristics signs should have; it also has clear guidelines for how those signs should be hung in public places. And failing to follow those rules can result in negative consequences such as fines and lawsuits as well. 

Whether you’re planning to purchase custom signs for your own building or outsource an order for a client, it’s crucial that you understand how signs must be installed once they reach their destination.
