Where’s the beef? It’s in this very beefy project that, among other things, will detail a process for creating table tents with call numbers on them like those used by many fast-food locations.

Large franchise operations order these by the millions at a super cheap price, but smaller, local establishments often require quantities that can be profitable for laser owners, UV printers, sublimators, and other smaller-run personalization professionals.

Get into the profitable ADA-compliant signage market while saving time and money and gaining a competitive advantage. How? Use a UV-LED printer.
UV printing—and more specifically UV-LED inkjet printing—has been around for many years. Still, it has only been in the past 2 to 3 years that the industry has seen several companies manufacture a small-format (SF), entry-level flatbed printer that would lend itself to broad-based acceptance in the engraving and awards market. The SF table sizes accept products up to a 12 in. by 24 in. and up to 6 in. in height, and these printers are beginning to become popular profit centers.
For ARA retailers and suppliers, the intricacies of the Americans with Disabilities Act can make ADA signage a cash cow or a big headache. You can ensure it becomes a profit center for your company by doing plenty of research in advance to be certain you have the knowledge and capabilities required—or having a supplier who can do all that heavy lifting for you. Recognition Review can give you the basics to make a decision about whether this market is right for you.
