We’ve made many signs for schools which include entrance signs, lobby signs, plaques, and post & panel signs. While these signs are definitely important for personalizing the school, public buildings require ADA signs and schools are no exception. Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) signs include signs that are required for emergencies such as exit signs and identification signs such as room signs. Some signs are pretty typical, like restroom signs and wheelchair-accessible signs. You can find these signs easily online, but they are always the standard blue and white. These signs for Vaughn M.I.T. were custom-made to match the school’s colors, so it suits the school much better than blue and white signs. All of the signs were made to match in color for uniformity and to show school spirit.
Vaughn M.I.T. is a middle school in Pacoima, California. Schools have many different rooms so we made a lot of room identification signs which included different classrooms, storage rooms, the MPR, and restrooms. These signs require tactile copy and Braille so a person with vision impairment can read them. Other signs are for emergency or safety, like the stair identification signs, maximum occupancy signs, exit signs, and evacuation maps. The exit signs also have raised copy and Braille. It may be hard to see in the photos because the Braille is the same color as the sign. Since the color of the Braille is not too important, sometimes they will be clear or match the sign color, or some clients will choose to make them the same color as the copy. That is completely up to you, and just another perk of having your sign made by a custom sign company. These new signs look great and are sure to help students, faculty, and visitors navigate through the building with ease.
