Guide, Inform and Welcome Everyone with Wayfinding, Directional and ADA Signs
- When visitors can find their way easily through your facility, they’ll become less frustrated and more satisfied with their experience. Of course, for store and restaurant owners, well-positioned wayfinding signage can often mean the difference between a one-time visitor and a repeat customer!
- Most interior spaces are subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act and its standards for ADA signage. If you ignore the law’s many rules, you could be assessed a substantial penalty. Fines can reach as high as $50,000 in some (rare) instances for first-time offenders!
- Of course, it’s good citizenship to welcome those who are blind or have visual impairments with ADA braille signs. It’s good business, too! Visitors and customers will look favorably on retailers, dining establishments and others that welcome them with ample signage that adheres to ADA guidelines.
Wayfinding Signage: A Closer Look
Simply put, wayfinding as practiced by Signs Now Waterford and others is about:
- Knowing where you are in a building or an environment.
- Learning where your desired destination is.
- Finding out how to get there from your current location.
“Where’s the entrance?” “How do I get to the County Clerk’s office?” “What floor is the Smith Company on?” “Where’s the check-out lane?” These are but a few of the questions that good wayfinding signage will answer for visitors or customers … without the need to stop and ask someone!
Most — but not all — wayfinding solutions involve signage. Sometimes colors or a special graphic theme may distinguish the Biology Department from the Math Department, for example, but most often it’s signage that does the primary job. And, that’s where a full-service signage resource like Signs Now Waterford proves its worth. We have directional and informational signs for every application and budget, not to mention full color graphic capabilities!

ADA-Compliant Signs: A Closer Look
Featuring high-contrast tactile and braille characters for easy readability - with additional pictograms in some cases - ADA-compliant signage solutions from Signs Now Waterford meet government requirements for ADA signs in permanent rooms and spaces. It’s likely your store, restaurant, office, municipal building, apartment complex, mall, stadium or other public space will need:
- ADA elevator signs
- ADA exit signs
- ADA office signs
- ADA restroom signs
- ADA room and floor numbers or letters
- ADA stairwell signs
The truth is, ADA signs are required almost everywhere. You’ll need ADA-compliant signs for offices, lunchrooms, lobbies and even closets! About the only exclusions from Americans with Disabilities Act signage requirements are building addresses, directories, parking signs and temporary signs to be used for seven days or less.
With Signs Now Waterford, you'll select from two basic types of ADA-compliant signs. Our standard, off-the-shelf ADA signage is the value choice for manufacturing plants, distribution centers and the like. Alternately, we can individualize your ADA signs with your logo, company colors and graphics. These custom ADA signage solutions from Signs Now Waterford can accent your interior décor, support your corporate branding — or both!
