The Federal ADA signage guidelines can be difficult to navigate due to their complex and meticulous requirements. Our new series, “How to Achieve ADA Signage Compliance,” aims to empower sign manufacturers with the education they need to ensure ADA compliance for each sign they ship out.

As the demand for signage increases across the board, there is a growing opportunity for both current and new fabricators to enter new markets and expand their customer base. In fact, all four sectors of the sign and graphics industry: printing, electrical signage, digital signage, and architectural signage, are expected to rebound this year due to new demand in the post-COVID world.

Ensuring ADA compliance is a must for all signage fabricators and manufacturers; however, it’s not uncommon for certain details to slip your mind from time to time. In our experience, one of the most common mistakes in photopolymer production is not making use of the Stouffer Scale to ensure that bulbs are working properly. This might seem like a minor detail but it makes all the difference, considering poor exposure can lead to non-compliance as well as failures causing expensive remakes and loss of customer confidence.

We are all busy and often time passes without notice. It is easy to overlook some parts of the process when manufacturing ADA-compliant signage. Ultimately, it is all about the details. This means that paying close attention to the very last detail is the key to success in the business of custom sign fabrication. One of the most common mistakes fabricators make during the sign manufacturing process is not changing the bulbs on their equipment. Typically overlooked in the sign-making process, your bulbs can make or break the quality of the signs you produce. Below is how you can evaluate the effectiveness of your bulbs.

As sign fabricators, we understand that the process of creating signs is intricate, requiring precision, accuracy, and meticulous attention to detail. With all of the focus on precision and detail, sign fabricators should review their current processes to identify where they could improve. One common area that sign fabricators could improve when producing photopolymer signage is optimizing their washout time. Many don’t realize how important washout times are for photopolymer signage, and how having the right washout brush is key for fabricators to speed up their washout times.
