It is tough to make a great ADA sign if you do not know what it should contain. ADA signs should be made with a non-glare finish. They must have high contrast between the background and the content, aside from any included braille. Visual characters must meet the font, size, and contrast requirements. Additionally, ADA signs whose primary purpose is identification must have tactile characters, may sometimes require pictograms, and must meet specific mourning requirements. Those meant to be directional and informational are not required to have tactile characters or pictograms, but they still have to meet the mounting requirements. These guidelines are specific enough for the sign to do its job but general enough that a business can still have custom ADA-compliant signs.
