UV Printing: A Simple Method for Developing ADA Signage

Looking for a simple solution to getting all of the ADA signage you need for your sign shop?

UV printing has become an industry standard because of its simplicity and efficiency. While there are many methods available for making signage that satisfies all the regulations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, UV printing is considered by many experts to be the best.

We use this method of printing here at Erie Custom Signs, and find it provides our customers with a number of important benefits, including:

Easier processes than ever before.

Many other techniques used to develop ADA signage require you to make use of a whole bunch of different pieces of equipment. However, UV printing allows you to use a single machine and only a few steps, which simplifies the whole process significantly. The signs you print in this manner can also match signs you already have that were created with different techniques, meaning you can have a cohesive set of signs without having to figure out the methods of printing for each one.

A major time saver.

Because the process of UV printing for ADA signage is so easy, it also saves a great deal of time. For example, an average UV printer is able to create a six-by-eight inch sign, complete with Braille, in less than four minutes. Even if you decide to add a raised pictogram, you would add just 30 seconds to your total printing time. It’s a tremendous help for sign shops that have larger orders and need them fulfilled on short deadlines.

Use the materials of your choice.

With other methods of sign printing, you have to make sure all the materials you are using align with the printing method. However, with UV printing, you are typically able to use materials you already have, regardless of what they were, and the printer will adjust to ensure the result fits with all ADA regulations. For example, if you are printing on a glossy metal that might not work in its current format, the printer can also add a matte color to ensure it complies with ADA regulations.

These are just a few of the biggest reasons why Erie Custom Signs’ UV printing is a popular choice for sign shops across the nation. Contact us today for more information about our techniques.
