ADA Signs & Braille Signs in Portland
Adhere to regulations with ADA signs that enhance your branding.
Approximately 2.5 million Americans are legally blind, and millions more have limited vision. ADA signs have high-contrast, tactile letters, along with braille, for optimal readability and accessibility. Strict rules govern the design of ADA-compliant signs and graphics, making it smart to work with an experienced resource like the team at Signs Now Portland.
Sometimes called accessibility signs or tactile braille signs, ADA signs are designed and placed in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This law is intended to ensure that all buildings are accessible to individuals who may have a visual disability of some sort.
It’s essential that business owners and building managers adhere to the rules that dictate the design and placement of ADA signs. When you work with Signs Now Portland, we’ll make sure your building remains in compliance, and in doing so avoid substantial fines.
With the right kind of ADA signage, you’ll also be able to welcome more customers and visitors to your place of business – simply put, people look more favorably on businesses that have made their access easier.
What parts of my building require ADA signs?
Generally speaking, all permanent rooms and spaces, as well as elevators, stairwells and exits, should feature ADA signage. A few examples include:

At Signs Now Portland, we know that even if an ADA-compliant sign isn’t required, it’s still a good idea to proactively install them. Welcoming everyone into your building by making sure your building is accessible to all is a good thing! It also helps to ensure that customers will return to your business if they were made more comfortable by being able to successfully navigate your building.
Can I customize ADA signs?
Though regulations mandate certain standards for ADA-compliant signage, such as high-contrast braille and tactile characters, a wide degree of individualization in custom design is allowed. You can look to the design team at Signs Now Portland to create a custom solution featuring your logo, corporate colors or other graphics. Comprehensive building sign and graphics packages help to enforce your branding and messaging throughout, and your ADA signs should be no exception to that.
