    I am working on an upscale directory sign for one of our clients. Attached is the picture of where it was *supposed* to go on the wall. We assumed it would be no problem to move the two pictures... well apparently it is a huge issue.

    So now I need a nice freestanding directory sign. Every system I look at seems too modern (shiny silver... metallic). The ADA signage I'm doing will look like the bathroom sign I attached (white 1/4" acrylic back panel, two-color background and white applique letters) and I would like to design something that would go with it... I need about 5-6 spaces on the directory.

    Anyone have any thoughts on how to create this or what sign system to look at?

    Does your shop have fabrication capabilities?

    I hate system signs in most instances... usually it's because if your shop can fabricate, your shop keeps more money.

    Unfortunately we are very limited. I usually use Scott or Clarke but I'm not finding anything I like or can modify to suit my purposes.

    I also have independent manufacturer that will fabricate what I create - if it's not so crazy it would blow the budget. Most of the time cost means I have to use a pre-made system instead and find a way to make it work...

    You could always tell them that ADA regulations force you to mount the sign on the wall.
