As a school principal or administrator, your top priority is the safety of your students and staff. One effective way to help ensure their safety is by implementing safety signage throughout your school. We’ve worked with many school districts and have come up with many custom signs solutions. From our talks with clients, here are three benefits of updating school safety signage:

Improved safety:

Safety signage can help to identify potential hazards and remind students and staff of safety protocols, which can help to prevent accidents and injuries on school grounds.

Enhanced emergency preparedness:

By indicating the location of emergency equipment such as fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and emergency exits, safety signage can help to ensure that students and staff can quickly and safely evacuate the school in the event of an emergency.

Increased awareness:

Displaying safety signage throughout the school can raise awareness of potential hazards and safety protocols among students and staff, creating a culture of safety that can help to prevent accidents and injuries.

Overall, implementing safety signage in your school is a simple and effective way to help ensure the safety of your students and staff. By clearly identifying potential hazards and emergency equipment, and raising awareness of safety protocols, you can create a safer environment for everyone in your school community.

Signs in school are important to communicating proper messages, branding and school building spirit. However, there may come a time when it becomes necessary to consider replacing this signage. There are a variety of reasons why this may be the case including damage or wear and tear, regulatory changes, and a lack of effectiveness. Whatever the reason, it is important to carefully evaluate the need for new signage before making a decision. Here are five key reasons why you might need to replace your old school signage.

1. The old signage is outdated:

If the old signage no longer reflects the brand image or message that you want to convey, it may be time to update it. This is especially important if the old signage is no longer in line with your current business goals or marketing strategy.

2. Improved Visibility and Safety:

Old school signage can become faded or difficult to read over time, leading to decreased visibility for potential customers. Upgrading to new signage can increase the clarity and readability, making it easier for people to find understand your message. This is not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for safety reasons. Damaged signage can be difficult to read or interpret, which can lead to confusion or accidents.


3. It doesn’t work like it used to

If the old signage is not attracting the desired attention or is not effectively communicating your message, it may be time to consider replacing it. This is especially important if you have noticed a decline in business or foot traffic that may be attributed to the ineffectiveness of your signage.

4. School Pride

Newer signage options often offer more customization options, allowing you to tailor your vision and messaging to fit the specific needs needs of your school’s admin, clubs or teams. Outdated signage can make your school look outdated as well. Upgrading to new signage can help to modernize your school and give staff students and parents a more positive impression.

5. Cost-Efficiency

While replacing old signage may seem like a large upfront cost, it can actually be cost-effective in the long run. Older signage may require more maintenance and repairs, while new signage is likely to last longer and require less maintenance. Technology has come a long way in the past years. There are now more advanced and cost-efficient sign options available, such as LED and digital signage, which can be more better for your school’s budget in the long run..

Ultimately, the decision to replace old school signage should be based on a combination of factors, including the technology available, the current state and effectiveness of the signage, and any local regulations or compliance issues.
