The main purpose of directional signs is to guide people to their desired location without any discomfort. They are also called wayfinding signs. Generally, directional or wayfinding signs are used to guide people to restrooms, elevators, parking, and in some cases emergency exits. They are the most common type of signage that you will find in public areas. Custom Directional Signs can be used as both indoor signs and outdoor signs. When they are placed as indoor signs and are pointing towards a restroom, elevator, or any public facility, they must be ADA compliant. The placement of directional signs is very important, as it gets very stressful for anyone if they are lost or not able to reach their desired location on time. They should be placed high enough to be visible from a distance. Also, they should be placed at a distance from the key locations so that people can choose between going there or not.

For all custom signs which point to the public facilities should adhere to ADA guidelines to make sure that people with disabilities can access them without facing trouble.
