Are you buying your ADA signs from a distributor or a manufacturer?

When it comes to buying ADA signs, do you feel you are in the dark? It is difficult to look at a company selling ADA signs and know what you are getting. That is because most companies selling ADA signs aren't making them in-house. When choosing a company to purchase these signs from, the first step is to determine if you are buying from a distributor or a manufacturer. There are obvious differences, but a few that are more subtle. These include:Gravograph IS8000XP

  • In nearly every large ADA installation, some signs are needed that were not thought of earlier. These are signs that are required by the inspector, but somehow missed. If you purchased your ADA signs through a distributor and now need additional ADA signs with a very quick turn, you're now dealing with a 3rd party between you and the manufacturer. This significantly slows down the turnaround and will ultimately cost you more money. Working directly with the manufacturer means you get a faster and more efficient response, and a better price.
  • Signs for San Diego has the largest and best equipment. We use the Gravograph IP8000XP. This provides more accurate and faster results than other equipment. Many other companies have makeshift equipment or big routers that are not designed for smaller formats, and do not perform as well.

Are you buying from a distributor? Some of the most visible names on Google are marketers, rather than manufacturers. By choosing Signs for San Diego, you can come in and see our equipment, meet our team, and often see your ADA signs being made. This gives you greater control and better pricing, and less risk than choosing to work with a distributor.
