Wind Creek Braille Wayfinding Signs

Sometimes, the simplest things that are the most fascinating. Take these Wind Creek Casino wayfinding signs SignGeek created, for example. At first sight, they just seem like basic signs. To us, these signs represent the craft and art of the sign making business.

The whole process starts with the customer. We receive logos and all other information, then we help to design the look .

IMAG4217 We create computer files that, when connected with the routing machine system, will cut the letters and your logo to exactness.

To produce the signs, we layer two pieces of acrylic together. The top layer is used to cut out the letters and logo. Once the router has done its job, we then peel off the top acrylic layer – leaving  the routed letters/shapes behind. This adds three-dimensional lettering for the signs.

TIMAG4218o add more design appeal, we can etch a logo or other design on the remaining acrylic (like the picture to the left).

In addition to our standard wayfinding signs, we specialize in A.D.A. compliant braille wayfinding signs to benefit those with vision impairment.

For those that do not need them, braille signs are often passed by without second thought, but the process in which they are made is quite interesting.IMAG4225

 

Those little dots take a two part process. First, a special drill bit bores holes that will house the braille beads. The holes are specially made so the beads pop into place without falling out. No glue or adhesive, just a special tool that pushes the beads in. Pretty cool, huh?
