for ADA Sign Printing
Nearly every commercial construction project requires ADA sign printing.
As your local Phoenix printer, we can help you comply with local and national building codes as well as the American with Disabilities Act. Once your design and construction professionals specify the correct ADA signage for your project, contact PRI Graphics. We will make sure you get them printed and installed correctly.
Your ADA sign printer must have specialized print and sign equipment to print ADA signs and at PRI Graphics, we have that equipment in house. This allows us to get your job done quickly and at a reasonable cost.
ADA Signage Requirements
In the United States, the Americans with Disabilities Acts (ADA) has strict rules about ADA accessible signage in public buildings such as office buildings, schools, restaurants, and hotels.
The objective of these standards is to ensure easy access, consistency, and a positive interactive experience for all persons with disabilities, regardless of what type of public building they visit.
Whether you need ADA sign printing for your building’s entrance, elevator, bathroom, or other location, the requirements for braille, text sizing, signage material, location, and mounting installation are quite specific.
At PRI Graphics, we understand the ADA requirements and can ensure that your new signs are completely compliant.
Important Rules for ADA Signage
Below, we cover the basics so you can have a better understanding of what is required in ADA sign printing:
- ADA signage must have a non-glare finish
- Colors must be contrasting
- Fonts and Text Characters must be in UPPERCASE
- You must use a San Serif font
- You cannot use condensing or Italics
- Pictograms & ISA symbols (ie – wheelchair access) must be included where applicable
- Both employee and public areas require the proper ADA signage
- There are exact sizing and spacing standards for Braille
- You must know the difference between raised characters, letter-for-letter, and Grade 2 Braille and when to use each of them
