Since its founding in 1998, the United States Sign Council Foundation (USSC Foundation) has been the industry leader in performing on-premise sign research. This dedication has resulted in over (20) university-level scientific studies on the design characteristics of on premise signs and traffic safety. In addition, the USSC Foundation provides both educational resources and legal analysis on zoning matters for the sign industry.


On-premise sign research is the fundamental mission of the USSC Foundation. Since 1998, the USSCF has completed over twenty (20) studies and analyses focused solely on on-premise signs issues. At the core of this research has been an effort to define the necessary design characteristics of on-premise signs to promote and insure traffic safety. On-premise signs perform a critical role in the wayfinding system that drivers use to get from Point A to Point B, and signs that cannot function as intended, whether they be too low, or too small, or placed in a disadvantageous position, can compromise this very vital activity.
