    fire exit signs

    does any one know if there are rules regarding font on fire exit signs (the directional signs also listing where extinguishers go)

    we have been tasked with creating them! (although we are showing cover supervisors how to so they can do it next time)

    had not thought about that.

    the main factor is they want them printing in comic sans on beige paper. i have passed this on to another techy as i am physically unable to make any text comic sans)

    Comic Sans should be banned in schools.

    Hate mail, to people you don't like. But not art teachers, some of them like that sort of thing. Funny bunch art teachers.

    It'd probably be one of those fixed point in time things that could not be changed or something. Probably something like - without Comic Sans Daveros would not have been driven mad by poorly typeset greeting cards and so never created the Darleks therby throwing off the balance of the universe.

    We've been told they MUST be the the glow in the dark, plastic ones. I'd hold fire on doing anything until it's confirmed that you can make your own - this came from the fire safety officer.

    Putting aside the glow in the dark requirement for a moment you could use this site to mock up some signs.

    Link: Online-Sign v3 fast free customised printable safety signs

    Creates the signs as downloadable PDFs with whatever text you choose to enter.
