Signs for San Diego can find a lot of colors in stock materials, but what if you need a PMS perfect color match? There is a way!

Signs for San Diego starts with a clear sheet of plastic. There is a special sheet with non-glare surface. But it is clear, and not the color you want. In the world on paint, nearly any color can be mixed. We use this and paint the back side on the plastic sheet. And Wala, we have a stock sheet of

 the right color and the right material.

The process to make the rest of the ADA sign:

  • We section the sheet into the correct sizes with a CNC router
  • We apply a 1/32 inch “applique” sheet in a recitangle
  • We place this on athe engravor and with a slaint cutter cut out the letters, shapes and add the bevel
  • Peal off the parts that are not needed
  • We then drill small holes in the pattern of the braille
  • There are small nylon balls, we insert these into the holes with a little force

Clean up and we have the perfect color, and a great looking ADA sign.
