"I received my signs a few days ago and wanted to let you know that I think they are very high quality - I was honestly expecting much thinner metal and was pleasantly surprised that they were so robust in construction. They are also very bright and super-visible. You are offering a great product at a great price - thank you. I will highly recommend your products."

The history behind these symbol signs...
This system of 50 symbol signs was designed for use at the crossroads of modern life: in airports and other transportation hubs and at large international events. These Symbol Signs were produced through a collaboration between The Professional Association of Design AIGA and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and they are an example of how public-minded designers can address a universal communication need.
To develop such a system, AIGA and DOT. compiled an inventory of symbol systems that had been used in various locations worldwide, from airports and train stations to the Olympic Games. AIGA appointed a committee of five leading designers of environmental graphics, who evaluated the symbols and made recommendations for adapting or redesigning them. Based on their conclusions, a team of AIGA member designers produced the symbols.
A first set of 34 symbols was published in 1974, and received one of the first Presidential Design Awards; 16 more symbols were added in 1979. These copyright-free symbols have become the standard for off-the-shelf symbols in the catalogues of U.S. sign companies.
