Questions to Ask When Purchasing Wholesale ADA Signage

By |

Table of contents

Many sign shops simply are not large enough or do not do enough work with ADA compliant signage that they do not want to purchase the equipment or get the necessary training to perform such work themselves. Therefore, outsourcing ADA signage for wholesale purchases is often the best strategy to get high-quality ADA signage for resale at affordable prices.

If you are interested in working with a wholesale ADA sign provider, here are a few questions you should have in mind when deciding which company you will work with when looking to purchase wholesale ADA signs:

Q: What is the turnaround time on orders?

If you require quick turnarounds, you should make sure that any company you decide to work with has the capacity to get the amount of work you need completed within the timeframe you need it.

Q: Are they flexible on pricing for wholesale orders?

Will a sign shop offer you a lower wholesale rate, or is their sign pricing set at a fixed rate regardless of order size? Typically if the company does not offer a wholesale rate, you are better off looking elsewhere, as there are plenty of outsourced ADA sign shops that will be more than happy to work with you on price and affordability.

Q: Do they provide any samples you can use as sales tools?

It’s always preferable to have free samples, but even paid samples can be great to have in your own store as an example of the kind of products your own customers can purchase from you. Quite often your customers will want to see firsthand what signs will look like before purchasing them for their facilities.

Q: Can they create custom designs?

If you anticipate the need for customization at all in your sign orders, whether it’s in terms of the designs on the sign, the materials used, the finish of the sign or its shape, you should make sure the sign shop is able to accommodate such requests.

Q: What do my options look like?

It’s always better to work with a company that gives you a wide variety of options in terms of size and material.
