Here at CustomSigns.com, there’s no doubt we’ve seen some wild requests! As a result, we decided to do our homework on one of the worlds oldest institutions!
The history of zoo’s goes back over 3000 years ago to ancient Egypt according to some reports. At the time the practice was mostly limited to pharaohs but obviously in later years the concept of zoo’s expanded into what it is today. Now millions flock to the parks every year to see exotic and rare species of plants and animals. Parks like Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Sea World, and Bush Gardens have heavily capitalized on their unique residents.
There’s no question that Zoo’s are places for families and especially children, but how many times have you visited a zoo and seen full grown adults or children banging, leaning, or screaming on or at the glass or fence enclosures that keep them separated from the animals. Does it make your blood boil? Does it make you wonder how they would feel if it was them being put on display instead of the animals? Well we’ve got signs for that and any other sign or situation you can think of!
While standard signs like “Caution”, “Do Not Enter”, and “Do Not Touch” are fine and do the job, they can still be pretty boring and lacking in the fun department- which is the opposite of what a zoo should be!
Dare to get creative with your zoo signage and make sure the smiles don’t stop when your guests take the time to look at a sign in between looking at all the animals! Make sure your guests stay entertained constantly while still managing to get across important information!
To illustrate this concept, we’ve compiled a list of the most effective and creative zoo signs we could find- all of which could easily be made right here in our Customsigns.com factories with our laser engravers!
1. For all those children (and adults) who like to dispose of their trash in all the wrong places such as animal exhibits, we’ve found the perfect sign to install:
3. While zoo’s can be hectic and you cant have a security officer at every door, make sure your guests know which doors are a part of the attractions and which aren’t.
4. Want to find a gentle way to remind your guests and their kids not to repeatedly tap on the glass of exhibits? This should do the trick.
5. And remember to always keep things fun and creative!
