Types of dog signs

Since beware of dog signs need to grab the attention of potential trespassers, the most effective signs typically come in fluorescent yellow colors. 3M™ – the company that invented reflective signs in the first place – manufactures three grades of reflectivity: Engineer Grade, High Intensity Grade, and Diamond Grade. All three types have rounded corners for user safety and pre punched holes for convenience, and will survive 10 years of bad weather outdoors (though 17 years’ survivability is more typical). 

At 80 mil thick, Engineer Grade signs are the most common type for indoor use where reflectivity is less appropriate. These reflect flashlights and headlights well, but without glare (and with slightly less visibility in low-light settings than other varieties). 3M’s High Intensity Grade signs are three times as reflective as Engineer Grade and use a special film that reflects well not both head-on and indirect light well, using angled surfaces to scatter light. These are particularly effective outdoors. For ultrahigh visibility, though, Diamond Grade offers the most intense retro reflectivity (albeit at a premium price). Diamond Grade triples High Intensity signs’ visibility, and are ideal for traffic signs or any notice that demands prompt and lasting attention.

Besides differences in material, “Beware of dog” may not be the only signage needed to account for our four-legged companions. Canines aren’t always welcome in sensitive environments, and dogs are ritually unclean according to some religious beliefs, necessitating no dogs allowed signs; property owners often need no poop signs or curb your dog signs to keep dog walkers honest; and of course, Dogs At Play signs warn drivers to stick to the speed limit and prevent potentially fatal accidents.
