If you’re like the majority of modern businesses, you’re working hard to make sure your public spaces are as accessible as possible to everyone. Incorporating braille into your printed packaging and signage is not only required for many businesses by law, but it also gives visually impaired individuals the equity they deserve when navigating the world.

Braille printing opens a world of accessibility, personal security, and independence. It provides the visually impaired equal opportunities to work, study, and navigate the world. There is no substitute for this freedom, and no digital alternative can completely replace printed braille.

SunDance can work with you to create ADA-compliant signage, packaging, menus, brochures, and more for your business.

Importance of Accessibility and Inclusivity

Being inclusive and accessible can be a make or break for your business. Compliance with current ADA regulations allows you to provide access and amenities in public places for people with disabilities. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, businesses and governments are required to make accommodations for people who are legally disabled. And the cost of a non-compliance violation is not trivial: The first violation is $75k, with each additional offense being $150k.

At the end of the day, it’s not just about fines or complying with laws; it’s about creating an environment that is fully accessible to everyone—including those with visual disabilities.

ADA-Compliant Braille Signage

When it comes to Braille signage, how can you be sure your signs meet local, state, and federal regulations? Producing Braille signage can be complicated, and you don’t want to suffer from a lack of knowledge or outdated guidelines. SunDance can help you navigate pitfalls and follow the guidelines to create compliant signage.

Though the regulations are several layers deep, we can brief you on the five most common ADA signage rules and lay out the exact parameters you need to follow when making wayfinding and navigating signs. When you partner with SunDance, you can rest assured that your braille sign will be fully ADA-compliant and follow all current regulations set out by local, state, and federal entities.

When it comes to installation, we can work with you to make sure your tactile sign is mounted at the correct height to meet ADA regulations.

Designing Braille Signage

Several important factors come into play when designing an ADA-compliant braille sign:

  • Font choices—While serif fonts are easier to read by sight, the opposite is true for tactile reading. That is why the ADA regulations require specific fonts for tactile lettering on your braille sign. Any letters identifiable by touch must be in a sans-serif font (such as Helvetica or Arial).
  • Font treatment—Tactile lettering must also be in uppercase and cannot be italic, oblique, script, or decorative.
  • Font size and kerning—There are strict guidelines for the width and height of letters, as well as character spacing requirements. We can help you navigate these specifics during the design process so that you can rest assured knowing your sign is compliant down to the smallest detail.

Keep in mind some states have stricter regulations. For example, California requires ‘Grade II’ braille, which has increased spacing requirements. We can help you navigate these variances to ensure your project is fully compliant locally.

It may seem overwhelming, but these guidelines don’t mean you must have a dull, unattractive sign. Your signage can still be beautiful and functional with the help of creative design techniques, background features, and more.

Our team will help you create a sign that follows all the necessary guidelines and works well for your brand and desired aesthetic. We can also print braille on a variety of substrates that meet all the required standards while adding a unique touch to your tactile signage.

Quality and Durability

One of the most important characteristics of high-quality braille is the height of the braille dot itself. Inconsistent heights and low-profile braille dots are difficult to read, whereas higher braille dots are naturally easier to read.

When it comes to braille printing, dots should all be in the correct position, with consistent height and spacing. This consistency and precision help create a perfectly formed braille dot, making reading much easier and faster for the reader.

The specific shape of a braille dot gives readers a specific tactile reading experience that defines the braille technique. SunDance’s state-of-the-art technology allows us to emboss the perfect braille dot shape every time.
