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 a fantastic business with amazing customer service and a fast turnaround! Michelle was extremely helpful and communicated with me every step of the way. I ordered a yard sign to announce my son's graduation from college and it is much nicer and bigger than I expected! It was also packed with great care which tells me how much they value their customers. I will definitely give Houston Graphic Signs more business in the future!

  • 5 star review  We had an outstanding experience with our signs! HGS made decals for the sides of our trucks. Brent helped us with creating the right electronic file from one of our old files. Michelle has been proactive in her communications. Quality is far better than we have received from other sign companies. HGS will be our permanent sign company going forward!

  • 5 star review  Houston Graphic Signs Company is such a great company to work with! I subcontracted them for a signage and wall graphic installation project I had in Houston and they have done a fabulous job. Very prompt responses and communication, great client service, and flexible to on-site changes. Would highly recommend!

  • 5 star review  Wonderful experience! Price was competitive, customer service and quality of work was better than expected. I had to replace a store front sign just and these folks went out of there way to make sure they understood what I wanted and exceeded expectations at every point of the process.

  • 5 star review  Michelle and her team work very quickly. When I placed my order with Houston Graphic Signs, I was on a tight deadline. Not only were they Friendly and Helpful but they were also Fast and Professional. The vinyl stickers I ordered look AMAZING and are made with quality materials to hold up to wear and tear! Thank you HGS for a job VERY well done!

  • 5 star review  Used Houston Graphic Signs to wrap one of the trucks in our fleet. We've had a vendor we've used for years that we were satisfied with, but HGS is in our office complex, and we figured we'd give them a shot. The whole process from their quote, to completing the work, to invoicing was seamless and easy. The wrap went on great with no issues, and the price was a significant reduction from what I was used to paying. Great process all around, and I plan on using these guys for all of my graphics needs.
