  • What is ADA compliant signage?
    ADA signage refers to signage that complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. In terms of signage, the ADA has specific guidelines for things like: Font size and style - Font must be large and clear enough for people with low vision to read. Sans serif fonts like Arial are often recommended. Contrast - There needs to be high contrast between the text and background colors for visibility. Dark text on a light background or light text on a dark background usually works best. Braille - Signs that have text also need to include braille translations for blind and low vision individuals. Placement - Signs must be located in accessible locations. For example, at a consistent height and not obstructed by other objects. Pictograms - Universal symbols or pictograms can be used to supplement text for people who have low literacy or don't speak the local language. ADA signage guidelines help ensure people with disabilities have equal access to information. Things like restrooms, exits, entrances and emergency instructions must meet ADA signage standards. Following these rules promotes inclusiveness for all.

  • What is the difference between an Acrylic Sign, and a Vinyl Sign?
    While acrylic and vinyl may both be considered plastics, they have important differences that are valuable to understand when choosing the right sign material for your needs. As sign makers, we want to be sure our clients receive a sign product that matches their expectations. - Acrylic is a solid, dimensional plastic material that provides a more substantial feel. Signs made from acrylic have a deeper look and feel to them. - Vinyl, on the other hand, is a thin, flexible material that is often used for graphics that conform to surfaces or that require ease of installation. Vinyl signs take on the appearance of stickers or decals. At Skyline Graphic Management, we take pride in clearly communicating these distinctions to our customers. Our sign experts can help you determine whether acrylic or vinyl is the best material given your budget and desired sign design aesthetic. We want to exceed your expectations and ensure you end up with a sign solution that perfectly fits your needs.

  • What is a composite sign and do you make composite signs at Skyline?
    Yes, we do design and fabricate composite signage. -Composite signs combine two or more materials into a single, integrated sign design. The acrylic could be used to create a solid, three-dimensional background or frame for the sign. Vinyl graphics or lettering could then be applied to the acrylic to add color, images and text. Additional metallic elements might be included for accents, such as a logo or name rendered in aluminum composite. By blending different materials in strategic ways, composite signs allow designers and sign makers to get quite creative. The end result is a cohesive, multi-layered signage solution that leverages the strengths of each material. Acrylic provides rigidity and depth, while vinyl and metal accents enhance visual appeal and brand identity expression.
