This National Sign Guidebook presents information for planning, designing, fabricating, procuring, installing, and maintaining signs in a clear, complete, and user friendly format.
Effective communication requires the clear, concise delivery of an understandable message through a powerful medium. Signs are one of the avenues for conveying information to the public about the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). They are a key factor in the way the public views the BLM’s competency to manage the public lands and waters under its jurisdiction. Signs on the BLM-managed public lands and waters are our “silent employees.”
A comprehensive sign program fosters safety, facilitates the management of an area, provides a learning opportunity for visitors, and offers a positive image and identity for all entities involved in the management of that area. This National Sign Guidebook establishes standards and guidelines for signs and the BLM’s National Sign Program. Signs purchased and installed on the public lands must comply with a number of procurement and accessibility laws and regulations. This National Sign Guidebook presents information for planning, designing, fabricating, procuring, installing, and maintaining signs in a clear, complete, and user friendly format for all BLM employees.
