The following guidelines are provided to assist signage makers and anyone looking to have a sign produced.

By using these basic guidelines, you will not only allow individuals regardless of their ability to view your sign, but will better promote what you are trying to say.

  • The location, size, scale, and shape of the sign should be compatible with the building and the surrounding area. 
  • Fabrication should be done with quality materials and craftsmanship, and the lettering styles should be legible. The message should also be short and simple and made easy to understand.
  • Lighting for signage should be subtle and fit in with the surrounding area.
  • Awning and canopy signs should be affixed flat or flush to the surface they are on and safely secured.
  • Try to avoid listing your products or services as this may mean the reduction in the size of the lettering, making it hard to read.
  • Use contrasting colours, such as a dark coloured font on a white background.
