Font Style Options
Safetysign.com will use the approved font below known as ClearviewHwy when producing your street name signs, this font offers several variations of character compression and character spacing, the correct version will be selected by us when producing your signs. The selection will be based on the length of the street name versus the length of the sign ordered. Due to the nature and size of street name signs, more often than not, the street name is compressed (from side to side) to fit the name area on the sign; that's the reason we have recommended characters, as soon as you go over the recommended number of characters the legibiliy of the sign decreases and the compression of the name increases.
