Your sign company offers a wide variety of products. When it comes to ADA signage you may be a bit hesitant to bid on that larger project. Looking at the plans/specs can be overwhelming. To begin, get an overview of signage needed by taking note of sign types, materials and quantities. It is important to count each sign type accurately.
This may include: room identification signs, restroom signs, fire escapes, pictograms, wayfinding directional signage, and evacuation signs. If sign quantities are in question it’s better to error on the high side. Once the signage quantities are in place it’s time to get your estimate. At Signs PDQ we are happy to help you with the process. If there is a question we’ll assist in getting you the answer…contact us!

ADA Braille Signs Become Part of Your Product Line
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.
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 email@example.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.
You need a wholesale estimate for ADA/Braille signs to mark up & present to your customer. You can count on Signs PDQ for a quick estimate on any amount of signs. If your customer needs a couple of ADA compliant signs or an entire building full of signs we can help you.
Our suggestion is to be detailed when you email your estimate request to us. Contact us for a spreadsheet to use as a guide to get all the important info to us. Once you receive our estimate you will need to get your quote together. Our suggestion is to make your estimate as detailed as possible. This will be helpful not only to your customer but to you. By adding item numbers, colors, frames, type of ADA sign you will help us get you the correct items quoted but will help you once you are awarded the job. Bid situations can take a bit of time so making note of specs are extremely important. When you are awarded the job your life will be much easier when details are available. Need more info?
