Street name signs are an integral part of a community’s identity.

Your street sign program is a great place to begin if you want to beautify your community and make it a safer and easier place in which to drive! To be distinctive, street signs are made to order. These signs can be single sided or double sided, with standard colors being white characters on a green background, white on blue or black on white. Other colors are available. Both flat and extruded signs are available in 6″ and 9″ heights with lengths varying from 18″ to 54″ depending on the amount of text needed. Flat signs are also available in 8” height. Custom metro sizes also available.

Tips on Constructing Street Name Signs

The brighter the reflective sheeting and the larger the sign panel, the better. Best contrast colors for both day and night are White characters on a Green or Blue background.

Common rule of thumb: One inch of letter height for each 40 to 50 feet of legibility distance. Optimal letter height is 6″ or more. Letter fonts vary by stroke width and letter width from Series B (thinnest) to Series E modified (thicker and wider). Standard specifications call for Series B name and Series C suffix.
