Signs PDQ and ADA Signs Wholesale are always glad to start a new ADA compliant sign project. We have to admit though, we have a lot of fun when we get to do something a little different from the usual day to day.

We got to do a project that was just a bit different just the other day. Have you ever heard of Gorilla Glue? Sure you have. It’s the glue in the orange bottle that has a Gorilla on it!

You’ve heard of the glue, you’ve used it, you know it’s good stuff and you know it’s made right here in the USA. But, did you know that Gorilla Glue is based in Cincinnati, Ohio? Don’t take my word for it, check out the virtual tour on their website.ADA Custom Signage for Glue Warehouse

“The Toughest Glue on Planet Earth”, that’s what we’ve always experienced, seen and heard, when it comes to Gorilla Glue products. We know their glue is mighty tough, but the folks at Gorilla Glue were certainly a joy to work with! Everyone we met was very professional and more than happy to go the extra mile to be certain to meet all of the ADA requirements for signage at their Cincinnati Headquarters. They follow ADA regulations to the letter, not only because it is required by law but, because they are committed to serving ALL of their customers, vendors, employees, visitors and anyone else that comes to their business.

When the folks at Gorilla Glue said, “We want a glue bottle on our ADA signs, but it’s most important that we are in compliance with the ADA?” we knew we were in good company. And why shouldn’t they have their flagship product on their ADA Signs? Their glue is their business! Their adhesives are on shelves in thousands of stores all over the USA and Canada. Their glue is how they have jobs, and how they were able to hire us. Naturally, we were glad to help them create the right design.

Perfect Color Matching on ADA Wholesale Signs

Color matching is crucial when you’re buying ADA signs (or any signage) for an entire building. If you have seven floors in your building. those floors may contain:

  • color coordinated hallways on each floor.
  • separate office groups on each floor that were created with varying decor
  • employee areas that are decorated very simply
  • …and too many other possibilities to list here!

There are numerous ADA sign possibilities and variations in any building, whether the building has 7 floors, 47 floors or only 1 floor. If you’re in charge of coordinating custom ADA compliant signs for an office building, hospital, school, church or any other kind of building, you should reach out to ADA Signs Wholesale today.

Sometimes, just the thought of color matching all of those ADA signs, finding their requirements and discovering their options, can be a bit nerve wracking. Fortunately, taking the confusion out of ADA signs and color matching is where we excel! Call us.

To choose a color check out the Rowmark color chart titled ADA Alternative.

If your customer can’t find the desired color, supply us with a PMS color number or a Sherwin Williams number or other paint supplier’s reference number.  Signs PDQ will back paint the signs to match!  There is no place better

than ADA Signs Wholesale to get the best color match on your company’s signs.

Color Match ADA Signs

A Color Match Tip From ADA Signs Wholesale and Signs PDQ!

Do you need to match the color of existing ADA Signs in your business?

You have a customer who needs a few ADA signs to match the existing signs. Can you accomplish this? YES!

Although matching existing ADA/ Braille signs can be tricky, following a few steps can simplify the process.

Match Colors of Existing ADA Signs, or Match Signs To Your Decor.

We Can Match Colors of Existing ADA Signs, or Match Signs To Your Decor.

How To Color Match Existing ADA Signs.

1.) Try to get your hands on a sign you want to match. If we can see an example of the sign in person, we can insure that the color, size and style are exact.

2.)  If you cannot bring the sign (or send the sign) to us, be prepared to take several pictures. Naturally a picture straight on is a must but a picture capturing the depth of the sign is also important. This picture will show us the layers of the signs. The more information we have about your sign, the more likely we are to match your ADA sign perfectly to your existing signs and/or your building decor.

3.)  Color:  By looking on line at Rowmark.com you can see the wide material types and colors that are available.  Signs PDQ is also happy to mail you a catalogue. Can’t find the color on the Rowmark chart? No worries …you can match the color to a Sherwin Williams or Matthews Paint sample book.  We can determine if the signs are back painted and we will match the exact color you choose.

4.)  Fonts:  As you know, matching the font, as well as the size of it, is very important. The picture you email us will tell the story! 

5.)  Braille Beads:  It’s also important to match the color of the braille beads used on the sign.  More often than not they are clear. 

We Love our Clients, And They Love Us.

When you order wholesale ADA signs for your client, you expect high quality signs that meet the ADA requirements and your clients specifications. 

Have a look at what some of our clients are saying about ADA Signs Wholesale and Signs PDQ.

ADA Compliant Signs Wholesale prices

ADA Signs Wholesale – we offer experience.

wholesale ada signs

wholesale ada signs

ADA Signs Wholesale and Signs PDQ have been working together for over 20 years to bring our clients the best TRUE wholesale prices on custom ADA Signs.

Over the years, we have become experts on creating, customizing and installing ADA compliant signage.

Signs PDQ was, and still is, a full service sign shop based in Ohio. We’ve been providing all sorts of custom business signs, ranging from banners to building signs to electrical signs to Vehicle wraps and graphics to yard signs to traffic signs … and the list goes on and on, for many years! 

Naturally, a very important part of our sign product capabilities list is ADA Compliant Signage with Tactile and Braille. Why is ADA compliant signage so important? Federal, State and Local laws require all businesses to post ADA compliant signs, thanks to the The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal Law ensuring that those with special needs have proper access to public places and facilities. 

Initially, we didn’t manufacture our own ADA compliant signs at Signs PDQ. Like many sign shops, we reached out to wholesalers to cover the ADA sign portions of our sign projects. Unfortunately, we found that our sign shop would lose money on the ADA portion of our sign projects because the wholesale companies weren’t charging us true wholesale prices, even though we were buying large quantities of their signs. 

We understood the cost of creating signs and we understood that the ADA compliant signs had to have special features and meet specific requirements, but why couldn’t we get high quality custom compliant ADA signs at true wholesale prices? We were happy to take on projects requiring ADA compliant signs, but, since we couldn’t get true wholesale prices, Signs PDQ would sometimes have to forgo profits on certain portions of large sign projects. Like everyone else, we have bills to pay, too. We searched everywhere for a real ADA sign wholesale solution, but we didn’t have much luck.

Don and Brenda O’Toole, the owners of Signs PDQ, did what they always do when faced with a roadblock, they found a way through it. ADA Signs Wholesale was born. Don, Brenda and their team already knew a great deal about ADA Signage compliance, but they studied everything they could find about ADA rules and regulations. Additionally, they purchased and mastered the equipment needed to create custom ADA compliant signs.

Today ADA Signs Wholesale and Signs PDQ sells custom ADA and Braille business signage to Northeastern Ohio, including: Cuyahoga County, Lake County, Akron and Cleveland, Ohio… and to any business through the world.  Let us guide you through selecting and installing ADA compliant signage for your business.

Signs PDQ discusses Pre Bid Meetings…More Opportunties for Signage

General Contractors are putting together bids in order to come up with their best total dollar amount in order to win the bid.  Having a competitive bid from subcontractors in a timely fashion is what they are looking for. Pre Bid meetings and  Bid due dates are on the bid request form.  Attending Pre Bid meetings is an excellent way to meet people representing the General Contractors.

Typically, a sign in sheet will be present. Obtaining a copy of it is a great way to find out who to market to.  Attending a Pre Bid meeting gives you a heads up about the project. Looking over the sign specs and possibly the plans before the Pre Bid meeting is a good idea.

This is a good opportunity to find out the answer to your questions.  Yes, you may have more questions later.  Another reason to have a great relationship with the General contractors.  Throughout this process remember YOU are the sign “expert”.  You may not know the answers but you can certainly find out.  Signs PDQ is happy to help with questions you may have. Don’t forget…EVERYONE attending the Pre Bid meeting will need signs!!!  Make contact, get connected, stay connected!

Signs PDQ: Formulating The Project Sign Bid for ADA Signs

customers ada signs wholesale

You’ve registered with General Contractors, filled out their Pre – Qualification sheet and hope to receive bid information.  Invitations to bid will ideally arrive via email.

Signs PDQ is involved with the Builder’s Exchange in Cleveland, Ohio.  We have found this to be an excellent source for General Contractors to get connected with us in order to send ITB’s (Invitation to Bid).  Signs PDQ frequently receive invitations that include links for the specs and plans.  These links have really simplified the process.  Utilizing the link that is provided will save time and money.

The Builder’s Exchange also summarizes the sign opportunities several nights a week. This will help you stay on top of what you are currently bidding on, what you have previously bid on and future bids.  If you’re going to do the work to bid on a job you want to get it in front of all the General Contractor’s that will be bidding. Attending pre bid meetings will help you find out who is bidding the project.

This is a GREAT NETWORKING EVENT!  The room is full of companies that will need signs!  Some GC’s will email you directly and may want to know if you plan to bid.  It is always a good idea to respond to their requests when possible…thus building a relationship with them.  Looking over the specs and plans to review if the signs needed are signs you can provide and install.

Be sure to take note of the bid due date.  We have found that this date sticks and although it  may occasionally change, it rarely does.  For more information check out ADAsignsWholesale.com.

Matching Existing ADA Signs with Signs PDQ

Matching Existing ADA Signs

You have a customer that needs a few ADA signs to match existing signs.  Signs PDQ can certainly help.  It is ideal if you can obtain a live sample for us to match. If this isn’t possible take a photo of your sign from the front and side view.  This will help us determine how the original signs have been built.  Next you can go to Rowmark.com to locate color matches.  As you know, the color you see on your screen may not be exactly the way the end product looks.  It will be close…but may not be exact!

Signs PDQ or Rowmark can provide you with a hard copy catalogue.  There is a possibility that the sign we are duplicating is back painted a custom color.  You can refer to the Sherwin WIlliams color chart.  We would suggest your customer signing off on the chosen colors.  Once colors are in place we will need to know the quantity, size and text. If frames are involved Signs PDQ can certainly recommend a vendor to duplicate the frame.  Standoffs are treated the same way.  The photo you take needs to reflect all of the features of the current signs.

Getting an RFQ from Signs PDQ for Wholesale ADA Signage!

You have now been marketing to General Contractors and Project Managers by attending Pre-Bid meetings, contacting them for pre-qualification forms and following up with an occasional call or email. You are now hearing about bids and GC’s are reaching out to you for bids.  The plans for these bids need to be obtained.

The Builder’s Exchange is a great place to begin. Many cities have the BX and will offer a trial week so that you can begin to understand what they have to offer.  Once you have the plans in hand (or on your computer!) you want to read the specs to be certain this is a project you want to move forward with.  There will be various sign types on the spec sheet.  Now you will want to go to the Bid/Drawings section of the bid sheet. The category I am speaking to is the interior room signs…ADA signage.

Typically there will be several sign types that you will see drawings of.  Each drawing will be labeled with a specific letter or shape.  You will find this on the interior drawing of the building.  Look for a door schedule that will total up each sign type separately. If this schedule exists…YOU’RE IN LUCK because the signs will be counted for you!  No door schedule?

You will be counting the various signs.  The next step is formulating  your results on a spreadsheet.  Email your info to  quote@signspdq.com  We will get back to you Pretty Darn Quickly!  Read more about the process of increasing your  companies bottom line at ADA Signs Wholesale.

Braille and ADA Compliant Signs For Your Building.

Laminate Multi-layer ADA Sign
Braille and ADA Compliant Signage by ADA Signs Wholesale

Last week Signs PDQ was called to share our expertise on signage that would be needed for an industrial building that will be converted to luxury apartments in Cleveland, Ohio.  Signs PDQ has frequently worked with this general contractor.  They didn’t  have  signage in place for this future building.  We took a tour of all four levels to determine what signage will be needed. There will be a sign at the threshold of each apartment.  Since three staircases will exist we will be placing one stairway sign on each level along with floor numbers.  There is one elevator that will need signage at each entrance.  On each level, on each  hallway, wayfinding directories will help visitors find their way to their destination.  Evacuation signage will be needed for each  apartment as well as throughout the building.  Public restrooms will need ADA/Braille signs. A parking garage will exist on the lowest level.  Signs will designate where apartment dwellers will park.

No smoking signs, entrance and exit signs as well as clearance stop bars to protect vehicles entering and exiting. Building identification signs are included in the blueprints.  There will be four exterior backlit electric signs. Because of the relationship that we have developed with this particular contractor, we have had the opportunity to help them get pricing together to present to the owner.
