The viewing distances listed in this chart reflect the viewing distance for each of the sizes. The Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) does not provide specifics regarding the use of certain text heights at certain distances in order to improve legibility. Instead, the MUTCD has already determined all of the necessary text sizes and merely provides the specifications for various sizes of signs, which in turn all have specific use cases that must be followed in order to help keep drivers safe and aware of important regulations.
It is the responsibility of the end user to follow the guidelines and requirements of the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) in order to provide road users with signs that ensure optimal legibility.

Printing Methods

We choose our printing processes for each product carefully so you receive the best quality product at the lowest price with industry-leading turnaround times. Depending on your size, material, quantity, and other factors, your sign will print using one of our carefully-tested methods.

SafetySign Printing
Cross-Hatch Ink Adhesion Test

SafetySign.com’s advanced printing process undergoes a stringent cross-hatching test. This specifically tests the adhesion and resistance to separation of the inks from the sign. In testing, a sample from the printing process is scored and covered in adhesive tape. The tape is removed and the sample assessed for adhesion quality.

We use a three-stage process to test all of our printing processes. We print our signs using only the processes that pass all three stages, giving you the highest quality signage possible.
