Build on the power of CAD to CAD integration with new tools ensuring consistency of designs with the flexibility to build custom content. Using drag-and-drop objects, intelligent letter formatting and spacing, the latest FHWA Series fonts and MUTCD standards together with panel and object libraries - nothing could be easier to design signs in only minutes.
For over 15 years, GuidSIGN™ has provided engineers a fast and easy way to design even the most complex highway and roadway signs. Discover for yourself why the major North American DOTs, government agencies, and leading transportation consultants have chosen GuidSIGN for all their sign layout needs.
With GuidSIGN, designing signs has never been quicker with new tools that reduce repetition and let you design with consistency. GuidSIGN has now been improved with the latest traffic guidelines currently in place.

Improved Object Handling and Design Features:
Sometimes disparity exists in how the finished sign should be designed and created because different needs call for different software: Many designers operate on CAD-based platforms which sign manufacturers may not use. If a sign manufacturer does not use CAD software, there's a chance the designer's files may be re-drawn prior to fabrication, meaning that accuracy (i.e. adherence to Federal standards) is compromised.
GuidSIGN offers a bridge between designers and sign shops.
GuidSIGN offers direct integration between a designer’s output files and the sign manufacturer’s own software. With the Export Sign for Cutter feature, you select which objects within a sign to cut, compress them to minimize material wastage, and export the file as a DXF, easily read by sign cutters (i.e. Roland and Gerber) and popular graphics packages. This minimizes the likelihood of sign recreation prior to cutting which, to designers, ultimately means WYDIWYG: WHAT YOU DESIGN IS WHAT YOU GET!
No extra investments
From sign design to sign cutting, GuidSIGN has it all. Don't spend extra on software and hardware to transfer sign data to cutters and plotters. GuidSIGN's Export Sign for Cutter feature is the only tool you need to link designs with final output.
Cut design time
Drag and drop your sign objects where you want them. Just pick a panel, add text or symbols, drag them into place and you're done! GuidSIGN retains precision and provides control in one comprehensive software program.
GuidSIGN takes care of the details such as letter spacing, border widths, and panel dimensioning. And with all the sign panels and standard signs at your call means you'll be done in a fraction of the time.
Design with assurance
Built-in federal sign standards and approved fonts ensure that you stay within specification requirements. GuidSIGN makes your job easier while maintaining your set parameters. This lets you focus on what you do best - design.
