Sign Customization from Erie Custom Signs: Why Order Custom Indoor Signs

By |

At Erie Custom Signs, we firmly believe that investing in custom indoor signs can be extremely beneficial. However, we also know that some business owners and managers aren’t convinced. Chances are, you have some reservations about placing an order for new custom displays.  

That’s why it’s worth learning more about sign customization possibilities, benefits, and misconceptions.  

A better understanding of the impact that custom indoor signs (even legally required ADA signs) can have on your business may make purchasing new ones a little less intimidating.

Common Concerns about Purchasing New Custom Indoor Signs

Over the years, the team at Erie Custom Signs has seen many business owners hesitate to bring new signs into their facilities. The reasons often vary from one business to the next. However, they typically stem from the same two fears. 

  1. Cost – The cost of new signage is probably the biggest concern business owners and managers have. Every organization has a strict budget, so expenses not considered a top priority (such as signage) are frequently pushed aside. Many assume custom indoor signs are too expensive and new signs in general aren't worth the investment.   
  2. Potential clashing – Often, business owners worry that new signage will throw off their already-established look. After all, a lot of work goes into making a building attractive to visitors. Even with sign customization being an option, it can seem risky.

These are fair concerns, and we understand the need for caution. The last thing any business owner wants to do is waste money on displays they don’t necessarily need, or worse—spend a significant amount of their budget on an order only to receive poor signs in return. 

So, it’s no surprise that displays installed in public facilities typically remain in place until they begin to chip or fade. 

However, most business owners don't realize that using outdated signage can affect a building's look and cost more in the long run…

Why ADA Signs Specifically Need to Be Updated

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), all public buildings are required to have ADA-compliant signage. Such displays aim to ensure that individuals with disabilities have the same access as everyone else. This means all ADA signs should be in good condition and clearly legible. When signs are outdated, either failing to meet ADA guidelines or proving too difficult to read, businesses can become noncompliant.  

Here are a few consequences you may face:

That’s why it’s not just worth investing in new signs—it’s strongly recommended.

If you are still concerned about the cost of new signs or potential clashing with your current décor, there’s good news. 

The technology used to develop ADA signage has greatly evolved over the years, especially within the last decade. Now, large quantities of signs can be made more cost-effectively than ever. Plus, there are even more options for sign customization, allowing for the creation of custom indoor signs that perfectly fit a business’ brand and desired look.

Specializing in this type of signage means that we have a team of skilled designers and a shop full of top-of-the-line equipment. All of this gives us the opportunity to craft the best custom signs possible.  

Here are just a few examples of how signs can be designed to your specifications:

Though some business owners are still under the assumption that all ADA signage must look a certain way, there’s actually a fair amount of flexibility when it comes to design. It’s just a matter of making sure your displays meet ADA requirements. So, if you need to replace your outdated signs, you can look forward to beautiful custom signs that pair well with existing displays and complement your décor.
