Sign Research Foundation Releases Latest Publication

The Glossary of Signage Terms includes thousands of definitions.




The Sign Research Foundation (SRF; Alexandria, VA) has released its latest publication, Glossary of Signage Terms, which includes thousands of definitions of commonly used phrases in the sign, graphics and visual communications industry — per a release from SRF. It also includes photos and examples of specific sign types.

Organized in 10 sections, the glossary includes sections on lighting and electrical, equipment, production and installation and digital printing. It also includes definitions related to design, digital printing and ADA and accessibility — also according to the statement.

The guide can be used to onboard new employees within the sign industry, to help urban planners use the correct terminology when drafting sign codes, and as a reference tool for anyone involved in signage projects. It is intended to be updated frequently with additions and deletions, per SRF.

The reference guide is available for $29.99.
