Anti-Graffiti Overlaminate

Our anti-graffiti overlaminate is a valuable upgrade that helps protect your investment. This special film is designed to protect graphics from scratches, increase the lifespan of your sign, and make it easy to clean many kinds of spray paint, permanent marker, and stickers from your sign.

Mounting

Standard mounting holes are included on each custom sign and are pre-selected below. Options for no mounting holes as well as other mounting hole arrangements are available for a small upcharge. These options carry an additional cost because they require a different production method.

Free Design Service

If you elect to use our free design service, our production team will review your design before it is printed. They will adjust the positioning and sizing of images and text to ensure that your sign or label is not only easy to read and understand but looks visually appealing as well.

We have put it together to provide key information or recommendations for safe practices. Please confirm with state or federal regulations governing the use of road / traffic and parking signs for exact signs and text size regulations when posting parking or traffic signs.

Best Practices for Posting & Design of Parking Signs:

  • Keep sign message brief.
  • Lettering and sign size should be appropriate for the distance and speed at which a sign is viewed.
  • Use words which are familiar, easy to understand, and comfortable to the viewer.
  • Parking signs should convey no more than one concept or thought.
  • Unnecessary information on signs will confuse the viewer.
  • Always consider the landscaping surrounding a sign when determining the sign size and placement.
  • Signs should not be obstructed from view; make sure sign is posted in a highly visible place.
  • Signs should be visible to both pedestrian and vehicles; position signs where they will be clearly legible at all times.
  • Do not place signs in locations where people may walk into them.
  • Do not place signs any closer than 12" to a walkway
  • The size of Parking and No Parking signs is considerably smaller than Traffic Signs (Stop, Yield, Do Not Enter, etc) because they are viewed at slower speeds, have high target values, and have easy-to-read legends.

Parking / Street / Fence Mount Sign Facts:

Parking signs can be used in many instances to communicate state, federal, or private property regulations, rules, consequences of parking, requirements, and many more types of information. State Regulated signs are normally posted by towns or municipalities, while private property signs are posted only by owners of the private property.

Brimar has classified parking signs as:

Signs to communicate state or federal regulations, like handicapped parking and fire lane parking restrictions. These type of signs are ruled by either town, state, or federal regulations, and there are usually fines associated to the violations indicated on the signs.

Examples of town, state and federal parking signs:

  • Yellow Lines will have signs posted with the wording “No Parking”
  • Controlled Parking Zones: a controlled zone is an area of restricted parking
  • Handicapped or Disable Parking: normally found in parking lots. Violation of handicapped regulations means fines up to $500.00 depending on the state you are in.
  • Fire Lane / Zone Parking Signs: normally prohibit parking on certain areas marked in yellow with words like FIRE LANE OR FIRE ZONE NO PARKING.
  • Road Signs that read “NO PARKING”, “No Parking Any Time”, “No Parking This Side of Street” “No Stopping or Standing”. These signs if not respected could and will result in Traffic Tickets
  • Bus Stops and Stands
  • Taxi Bays
  • Loading and Unloading Zones
  • Time Limit Zones

Public or Private property parking signs. These signs will vary tremendously in information. For example there are parking lot signs, Specific Customer and Visitor Parking, Tenant / Resident Parking, Tow Away Parking, Dumpster Rules, Do Not Bblock Driveway, Employee Parking, and many more
