Direct Color Systems Receives Notice of Allowance on Currently Pending Patent Application for ADA-Compliant Braille Sign Printing Process

Press release from the issuing company

The patent for this process is expected to issue in the coming months, marking another milestone for this innovative company

Rocky Hill, CT - “The ability to digitally print ADA-compliant Braille signage has been one of the more popular applications for our UV LED printers over the past few years. From architectural signage companies and non-profit organizations to educational institutions and sign shops, the variety of those purchasing equipment for this application continues to grow,” says Blair Allen, President of Direct Color Systems. “This Notice of Allowance is another step towards receiving our patent for this process, something the entire team at DCS has worked diligently to achieve.”


With the DCS line of UV LED printers, users have the unprecedented option of either first-surface or second-surface graphics when creating raised-texture signage on acrylic substrates. Standard 6" x 8" signs can be output in less than 4 minutes, with a full digitally printed background, raised letters and Braille dots.

Known for pushing the industry forward, Direct Color Systems has brought to market advanced UV LED printing features and applications like this patent for ADA/Braille signage printing process, cylindrical and conical printing with the EasyCyl, a complete bulk white ink circulation system, DTG capabilities with UV ink, TEXTUR3DTM, conductive ink/additive manufacturing printing, and many more.
