There are no restrictions on the number of colors to be used on a sign type, and we do not charge any extra for additional colors like some competitors do.
The graphics on ALL our sign products are waterproof, and when that is not sufficient, our top-tier special safety signs have "chemical proof" graphics (i.e. "waterproof, resilient to detergents, oils, common solvents, and as resistant to scratching reasonably possible").
We understand that our Clients operations or budgets sometimes do not permit the installation of permanent safety signs, or that remote locations make the use of permanent signs not practical, that's why we offer temporary and portable safety signs in the form of sandwich boards and tripod signs. Examples in the photos above illustrate safety signs made for Government institutions following the devastating Alberta flooding in 2013. We also make portable safety signs for Oil and Gas exploration and extraction sites situated in remote areas.
Standard and customized muster point signs are available for ordering with ES, along a with any other safety, cautionary, and warning signage, in any shapes and sizes, with or without reflective backing.

Immediately following the receipt of the down-payment, we will produce a Layout ("mock-up" to scale) which will be sent to our Client for approval (or revisions, free of charge).
