The following are resources that you can use to help you with your sign creation and development:


Distance & Visibility

If you want your message to be seen, read, and understood by the largest possible audience, you have to understand more about the connection between sign text and distance, as well as sign visibility. This effects things like typeface, the size of the sign text, and where you place the sign in order to maximize its viewability.
