Beautiful Signs for a Better Planet


Use ADA Signs as Required by Law

The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) reduces barriers for those with disabilities, including hearing and speech limitations. Although convention and good design has led to widespread use of many pictograms, the ADA only requires four pictograms.  These pictograms are listed below and if your facility offers the listed accessibility features, they must have ADA-compliant signage with the specified symbols.

ADA Required Pictograms

  • International Symbol of Accessibility (ISA)
  • Assistive Listening Systems
  • Text Phones
  • Volume Control Phones

The ISA is frequently on ADA signs. However, it should be used only when facility features completely fulfill handicap accessible requirements.

For signage directing to an Assistive Listening System, Text Phone, or Volume Control Phone give us a call or complete the Form on our Custom Signs page.

Remember that in addition to using required pictograms, there are many  other cases in which public buildings must meet signage requirements specified in the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.  The most common being that an ADA-compliant sign meeting the braille and raised lettering requirements in section §703 must be used to identify permanent spaces and rooms.  To learn more check out our ADA Guide.

Order a Sample – Color Selection & Quality

Within our sub-category product pages there are 13 colors of content and braille to choose from. Additionally, a clear braille option is available. Colors can appear differently on computer screens than they do in-person. To be sure your signs meet expectations, we suggest ordering a Green Dot Sign sample!

Our sample sign is handcrafted in Minnesota with the same machinery and processes as our Ready to Order ADA signs. Sample signs are our most common 7.25″ by 9.25″ size. They are made of aspen from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, have a beveled edge, and contain 3D non-toxic printed content. The front of samples has a random pictogram with lettering and braille in one of our 13 standard colors. The sample back shows all of our standard 13 colors in both letters and a raised square.

Holding a high-quality Green Dot Sign product will make you appreciate its unique beauty. Selecting a 3D printed color within your interior environment will ensure you are pleased with your choice for years to come.
