Objectives of Parking Lot Signs
The University of MA contracted with us to create signage for their parking expansion. Parking at the campus was somewhat difficult and the University has added new lots to the campus over the past couple of years. We worked together with the University to create signs based on their Sign Guide and also created the designs for new Meter signs based on their Sign Guide. In addition, the sign specifications previously used included the use of custom breakaway posts and non-standard post signs.
Express Sign & Graphics worked with the University to create new standards which would allow them to save thousands on this new sign project as well as on future projects.
By changing from .125 thick aluminum signs to .080 aluminum and reducing the post size for 3” square posts to a more standard 2” post and eliminating the breakaway, we were able to save several thousand dollars on their most recent parking project.
Past projects included design fabrication and installation of aluminum parking signs, pylon signs, and wayfinding signs as well as recycling/updating signage from other sites to save money.
