STOP Signs

As the vehicle ownership and use grew during the early 1900s in this country, authorities realized the need for a consistent way to guarantee people could traverse all roads and streets safely in their cars. In 1915, the first Stop signs were installed on the roads in Detroit, Michigan, an important automotive manufacturing city in this country at that time, and these first signs had a white background with black letters. Later, during the 1920s, the color changed to a yellow background with black letters. It was not until 1954 that the Traffic STOP display became red with white letters, as they still are at present. The adoption of a red STOP road sign was conforming to the same color as the red light on traffic signals.

Official STOP Signs Must Comply with MUTCD Specifications

The STOP signs you see today are all uniform throughout the world with the same dimensions, colors, and materials. The language may differ, but the specifications for these signs are in the MUTCD, which stands for Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices. The creators of this manual and the regulations in it understand the importance of traffic road signage on the streets, highways and roads to fit a standard code. With that, you can see that people in New York City halt their vehicles at the same identical signs that drivers in San Francisco do each day. This standard has help to shape the uniform regulations you see for all traffic and highway signage.

We use 3M 3400 Series Engineer Grade Prismatic. EGP meets or exceeds ASTM D4956 Type I. In addition, it has reliable performance. Expect life up is to seven years.

  • HIP or High Intensity Prismatic - HIP provides effective luminescence for mid-level traffic signage through a state-of-the-art reflective material, which produces an intensity four times as bright as the standard version. On top of this, HIP comes with a protective topcoat to enable the sign to resist scratches and other issues for 10 years. Our choice is 3M 3930 Series and meets ASTM D4956 Type III and Type IV. This is an excellent choice for value and performance.

  • Diamond Grade - Top of the line traffic signage comes with this grade of variant, as it provides the best reflectivity results, and allows people to read the signage clearly from a distance or at all angles. Buy a Stop Sign with Diamond Grade Cubed is an investment in safety. Diamond Grade has the highest level of light transmission of all the variants at a distance up to 500 feet.
