Source for Warning Label and Signs?

bartbart Solar Expert Posts: 30
I'm not having much luck finding a source for ready made PV warning signs and labels. I was hoping someone here could direct me?

Need:

"CAUTION: SOLAR ELECTRIC SYSTEM CONNECTED"
"CAUTION: SOLAR CIRCUIT"

AND Warning signs per article 690.53 NEC 2008?

Thanks, Bart

    Drew up a caution plaque last night using OpenOffice Impress, emailed a copy to the SDG&E NEM guy to see if he liked it before I turned it into a sign. He liked it (very quick reply!) and I called up a local trophy/sign shop. Emailed them a copy of the sign in bmp format and they should have it done in the next day or so and will cost me about $15. Good deal!

    I dont know if this will be much help to you, but I am a printer by trade, and can have these plaques made for you. You just need to give me the size you need, and I can give you a price, and have them shipped out to you.

    They would be plastic, Red background White letters Engraved, with holes or sticky-back (Holes are better for outside)

    Bart, have you tried a trophy shop, they might not have the paper stickers, but can use the hard plastic "stick-on/screw-on" labels?

    No affiliation, but I had mine made here:

    Engraved plastic with adhesive on back

    1 x 3 were $4 each and 1-1/2 x 3 were $8 each

    Like the others, I found a local trophy shop able to supply the required plastic signage at a reasonable price - just provided them a diagram of what I needed and they turned it around in a day or two.

    i had to sign up to leave this comment. When my usual source for labels were sold out, i did a google search and found only a few retailers that sold them online and nothing locally. i got some at duncansolar.com and they had them all in stock and shipped same day. I thought about having them made for me too but until then, i will just buy them. They are made by Tyco, if that helps with people searching for them.

    pvlabels.com has a wide assortment of warning labels. We're installers too and have had a heck of a time getting labels that worked for us, so we did something about it. Hope this helps.
