SPECIALTY IMAGING DIGITAL GRAPHICS ADA signage has become an integral part of the sign industry since the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act back in the 1990. Experts say that every sign company that offers interior signage should be providing some type of solution for this lucrative market. However, many sign shops tend to shy away from this area because of all the federal and state rules and regula- tions involved in creating ADA signage for different types of locations and environments, as well as in different states. That's when hooking up with a good ADA sign wholesaler is a perfect option. Bill Schiffner is a freelance writer/editor based in Holbrook, New York. He has been covering the imaging industry for 30+ years, reporting on many evolving digital imaging technologies including wide-format print- ing and newer electronic digital signage. He was the editor for a number of imag- ing publications and websites.
