By |

Table of contents

For most sign shops across the United States, one of the biggest considerations they’ll have to make when stocking up on inventory is the amount of signage they have that’s compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Almost all public properties throughout the nation are expected to comply with ADA regulations, which outline the accessibility standards at facilities for people with disabilities. Among these standards: signage that complies with certain rules that are mounted the correct height and location.

Here are a few tips to help you choose an ADA sign supplier for your sign shop:

Experience with the ADA.

Obviously, you want to be sure that any sign supplier you choose actually has a thorough understanding of all ADA requirements. This means a full knowledge of everything from Braille to text-background color contrast and more. Erie Custom Signs specializes in providing ADA compliant signage and has years of experience in this specific niche.

Variety of markets.

Most sign shops have clients in a wide variety of different markets. Therefore, any sign supplier you work with should be able to develop signs for each of these different fields. Erie Custom Signs, for example, creates signs meant for hospitals, schools, stadiums, malls, nursing homes and many more types of public facilities.

Customization opportunities.

You might have some clients that request specific materials or design elements, which means you need to be able to work with a sign supplier that can accommodate those sorts of requests. Erie Custom Signs offers signs in chemetal, corian, acrylic, laminate and more, and is more than happy to work in specific design requests, including logos, images, colors and more.

Customer service.

Ideally, you are going to want to have a long-term relationship with any sign supplier you choose. This means you should be on the lookout for a company that places a heavy emphasis on outstanding customer service. Erie Custom Signs is a small business with big-time operation capabilities, meaning we are able to handle any order you give us while still providing the level of personal customer service needed to get the job done correctly.
