People Signs is a national provider of sustainable solutions for interior and exterior signage and wayfinding programs. We have been manufacturing and/or distributing modular component signs made from fully recyclable material – and materials that are either recycled or composed of a percentage of recycled content – for over 30 years.
Aluminum supplied for our extruded sign systems is 100% recyclable. Any waste as the result of cutting extrusions to required lengths is reclaimed and returned to the extruder to be recycled into future product.
Modified acrylics selected for our ADA/regulatory signs are made by our suppliers using materials containing 20% pre-consumer, recycled plastic. Likewise, this material is fully recyclable. Any waste we generate from these materials in our manufacturing process is reclaimed and recycled.
Modular signage offers practical benefits: interchangeable sign faces to facilitate department moves and expand the product’s life cycle; minimal wall surface disturbance to avoid costly repairs; and parts that can be easily separated to simplify recycling of like materials. Additionally, our components are manufactured to strict tolerances and quality specifications eliminating waste from ill-fitting parts.
People Signs distributes both opaque acrylic signs featuring clear acrylic openings to view paper inserts and aluminum extrusion systems adapted to hold paper inserts with clear lens coverings. Changeable graphic inserts produced on paper for these systems offer the most practical solution to real-time, on-site message or name changes. Simple changes made on a desk top computer eliminate the need for more expensive replacement materials, negate the need for vehicular delivery improving the carbon footprint, and get immediate results, supporting productivity. Users may extend the benefit by using recycled paper.
