Incorporated in 1984, Accent Signage Systems, Inc. is a Minneapolis-based wholesale manufacturer of ADA-compliant interior signage along with extraordinarily inventive display solutions.
We take great pride in serving the interior signage market as a partner to sign shops everywhere. Whether your company is looking to expand its fabrication capabilities, or simply needs help with special projects and overflow, Accent is here to help. Our 30,000-sq. ft. facility houses our state-of-the-art machinery, quality materials, and expert staff with the knowledge and know-how to tackle any project you send our way.
Not only are we known for our award-winning signage, but also for our innovative inventions. Accent Signage has distinguished itself among its competitors with its patented Raster® Braille System. This innovative system uses an insertion device that easily allows our customers to create their own durable, perfectly uniform, ADA-compliant braille. With over 4,000 license holders in 38 countries, it’s easy to see why sign-makers are switching over to our method.
Our mission is to add value to our customers by providing innovative, high quality solutions with the help of science, technology, and expertise.
Accent founder Reuven Rahamim immigrated to the U.S. from Israel when he was just 23 years of age. After settling in Minneapolis he would go on to attend the Dunwoody College of Technology in Minneapolis and find work at a local plastic fabrication company. After purchasing his own engraving machine, Rahamim began his own signage engraving shop in his basement. What began as a small pet project quickly flourished into a successful business. As his customer base grew —along with project turn-around time — Rahamim knew he must adapt. The company he worked for allowed him to rent a small room in their building where he could set up shop; thus, Accent Signage Systems, Inc. was born. The company still resides in that same building today.
Rahamim had been hailed by his co-workers, peers, and the signage industry alike as an inventor, tinkerer, and even the “mad scientist of signs“. In the 1990’s one of Accent’s greatest successes was introduced by Rahamim himself, holding several patents on the renowned Raster® Method of Braille. This technology continues to evolve and pave the way as the industry’s preferred method of ADA-compliant braille insertion. But Rahamim didn’t stop there. He was determined to expand the company’s business model beyond the Raster® product line, and so continued his research and development of new products, processes, and technological advances.
Today, Accent Signage Systems, Inc. still upholds Rahamim’s inventive legacy. From our unique custom signage, LED solutions, name badges, and continued evolution of Raster® Braille products, we have safely secured our place as a leader in interior finishing industry.
Go ahead, be creative!
