There are many elements involved in starting or maintaining a business that you may have never thought about. One of these elements is ensuring that your business is compliant with the American Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in the workplace. ADA signs are part of the law in many states, which makes them a necessity for your business.
However, ADA compliant signage isn’t just a legal requirement- it’s an essential element of good customer service. ADA signs showcase your company’s commitment to inclusivity and makes your business available to a wide audience of customers.
At LOGOS Sign Studio, we specialize in creating custom ADA signs that are accessible to people of all abilities while matching your branding. Installing custom ADA signs supports your business’s positive reputation by showing customers that you appreciate their business and want them to feel welcome inside your workspace. If you own a healthcare business or commercial construction property, it’s particularly important that all signage is ADA compliant to ensure that all clients or tenants are able to navigate your building.
