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.

SafetySign Printing

The text is printed in HGCPIXymbols font.

The 12" Handle Stop / Go Sign Paddle from SafetySign.com uses these fonts because the message requires a font that will allow it to fit on the sign. These fonts are easy to read in daytime and nighttime conditions, and they are still legible no matter what version of the typeface is being used on the sign. They are also used to keep a consistent look with other traffic and parking related signs from the MUTCD.
