    I'm trying to find these plastic door id signs to replace at a local school. These are 4x8 and 8x8 in size. I just need the blanks in white and I can put vinyl on them for the lettering. They said they don't have to have the braille on them. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks

    Well if you don't need braille, and are just putting vinyl on them, just cut your pieces from PVC, or acrylic, or Rowmark, or whatever.

    I will if I have to but I'm not really setup to cut blanks. I mainly just do vinyl applications on vehicles and aluminum signs. Would like to find them pre made with rounded corners already

    The school may be telling you they don't have to have the braille and raised letters, but by law, they do. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) makes that quite clear. And though the handicap Nazis that used to go around seeking out public spaces to sue for having non-compliant signage seem to have stopped their activity, a school is a place guaranteed to have handicapped people at some point in time.

    I was going to say the same, but there is a possibility that they already have ADA signs there and just need some more signs.

    OP, if the doors do not currently have ADA signs, then these certainly would need braille and and all the raised and sized letter requirements.

    They do have other ADA signs these are for staff offices in the main office. Either way with or without braille does anyone know where to get them?

    Go to your local trophy/engraving shop and ask them to laser cut you some blanks out of acrylic. I'd personally recommend buying the material and bringing it to them. 1/8" acrylic is what you want. 12x24 is the standard size but ask what size laser they have before buying. You might get better yield buying 18x24 or something like that.

    Try firesprint, I think they can direct print(you supply the file), cut and punch them like you want in various materials. They are a merchant member here.

    ADA is some fun stuff. I'd always planned to be one of them ADA nazi's if this whole sign biz doesn't work out. I hate going to hotels, they never get their signs done correctly. I'd have an easier time listing proper ADA signs I have seen vs bad ones. Last hotel I stayed in had numbers well over 1" tall on every room placard and the raised copy was 1/8" thick, the braille was almost falling off the bottom of the signs, ugh... At least they were mounted on the correct side of the door.

    We will not use First surface vinyl letters / graphics for school signs. Examine the picture you provided, do you see the Sharpie repair of the missing letters?

    Yeah I know what you guys are saying about the ADA. Does anyone know where to get them made like what is in the the picture? Raised letters and braille?
    I' m having a hard time finding anything like them. There are 11 different ones I need made.
