Avery Dennison and DCS Collaborate for ADA Signage

A new way to create signage compliant with federal ADA guidelines.
Avery Dennison

Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions (Mentor, OH) announced a collaboration program with Direct Color Systems (DCS; Rocky Hill, CT) that will combine Avery Dennison’s films with DCS’s patented printing process to enable customers to create braille signage that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The Direct Jet 1800z, 7200z, and the new 1800BG Braille and Graphics UV LED printers from DCS – typically used for two-dimensional output, but which can also handle three-dimensional printing – can be used to create ADA-compliant braille signage on a variety of substrates.

DCS manufactures braille sign printers that offer customers the option of either first-surface or second-surface graphics when creating raised-texture signage on acrylic substrates. Standard 6 x 8-in. signs can be output in fewer than four minutes, with a full digitally printed background, raised letters and braille dots.
