As a business owner in the Houston area of Texas, your business must be accessible to people living with disabilities. One common disability is partial or complete blindness. To serve these customers, your business needs ADA signs.


The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990 to ensure that businesses all over the country were ready to serve Americans living with disabilities. This has had a major impact on signage.


Obviously, nobody would argue that being disabled means one does not deserve to shop. But it can be difficult for able bodied people to understand just all the challenges those living with disabilities face. Those businesses that really consider how they can help the disabled, will stand out. Providing high-quality service to all your customers is always a good business practice.


ADA signs do more than simply make your business more accessible to the visually impaired. They are also mandated by various laws, not just the federal ADA of 1990 but also subsequent state and local laws it inspired. If you do no not have ADA signs in your Houston-area business, you are missing out on serving visually impaired customers.


All businesses in Houston and elsewhere in Texas need ADA signs. But they don’t all need the same ADA signs. What kinds of ADA signs are available?


There are many different types of ADA compliant signs that offer different messages. You might need braille bathroom signs, large print hours of operation signs, or maybe you should rethink the color scheme of your business signs; some color patterns are more difficult to make out than others. The more ADA compliant signs you have, the better. You want to account for as many disabled shoppers as possible; providing a pleasurable customer experience for everybody is good for business.


Good customer service means repeat business and good word-of-mouth. ADA signs might seem like a small thing to business owners with good vision, but to the visually impaired they make a big difference. Some of the most common types of ADA signs available include:


  • ADA Bathroom Signs
  • ADA Door Signs
  • ADA Directional Signs
  • ADA Outdoor Signs
  • ADA Business Signs
  • ADA Lobby Signs
  • ADA Reception Signs
  • And more!


The ADA signs you need for your business depend on what you do, how big you are, and where in the Houston-area of Texas you are located.

    • 5 star review  Houston Graphic Signs is by far the best sign company in Houston, I am an assistant to a large local real estate brokerage in the area. We had an emergency regarding the HOA size requirements for a yard sign for one of our top agents about a year ago and Houston Graphic Signs were the only sign company able to expediate the sign and have it delivered asap! (believe me I probably called every sign company in Houston for help and Houston Graphic Signs were the only company that got it done) I have been working with Houston Graphic Signs for over a year now they produced high quality signs for our top producing agents (around 300) and worked with me regarding the art work and spreadsheets. Houston Graphics Signs always checks for errors on the art work to insure high quality. Michelle Mason who is one of the owners is always available! She always goes above and beyond even working late into the evening and weekends to assure our products arrive on time. You will not go wrong using Houston Graphic signs if you want high quality material priced at a competitive rate as well as top notch service. Thank you for everything Houston Graphic Signs Michelle Nagler

    • 5 star review  This company is fantastic. The design department was very receptive to our ideas for our logo. They were quick to offer suggestions for ways to make our company logo memorable. They offered multiple designs for us and were quick to present any changes that were made. They were very accommodating to our schedule for the installation on our truck. If you are looking for great service and a quality product, you need to look no further than Houston Graphic Sign Company. They will be doing all of our future graphic projects.
