Campsite, Portage & Trail Signs

Ideal for maintaining hiking trails and canoe routes, these all-weather plastic signs can be nailed to posts or trees, or tied with wire using the holes on each edge. These Chrismar signs are the standard at parks, conservation areas, outdoor education centres, summer camps, and on canoe routes and hiking trails across the country.

Large Squares
This larger 28cm (11 inch) square size is perfect for situations where visibility is more important such as on large lakes and whitewater rivers. UV plastic and UV inks mean this image will last outdoors. Each has holes for mounting. Also makes a nice gift for the avid camper or paddler.

The Algonquin and Killarney versions have the word ALGONQUIN or KILLARNEY written across the sign (above or below the silhouettes). They are also non-UV which matters less for these indoor signs than for outdoor signs. A great souvenir for those who love Algonquin or Killarney.

Small Diamonds
These smaller diamond-shaped signs can more subtly mark locations and routes, but are still quite visible from a reasonable distance. UV plastic and UV inks mean this image will last outdoors. Each has holes for mounting and measures about 10x16cm (4x6inch). Also makes a nice gift for the avid camper or paddler.

The Algonquin and Killarney versions have the word ALGONQUIN or KILLARNEY written across the sign (above or below the silhouettes). They are also non-UV which matters less for these indoor signs than for outdoor signs. A great souvenir for those who love Algonquin or Killarney.

Trail Direction Markers
Then there are our colour-coded circle/arrow signs which can be used to both colour-code a trail and point the direction. The most economical trail-marking and direction sign available. Perfect for situations where a trail turns sharply, or where several trails leave from a single trailhead or intersect. We use UV inks and plastic for maximum outdoor life. Size: 10cm (4-inch circle), 14cm (5.5-inch) with arrow.

Tip: For greater variety consider using our Small Diamonds - the reverse side of each is blank so you can vary your trail marking not only by colour but also by shape.

A few examples:
One of the most useful formats for interpretive
signs is the basic pedestal mount - which
puts the intepretive message at an easy
reading angle for the viewer
This kiosk system not only provides several
helpful maps - it includes a lockable display
box for event notices (other side) and shelter,
for both the sign & visitors, from the elements
One of a series of signs for Awenda Provincial Park for their boardwalk trail, designed using existing watercolour artwork and general text ideas. Chrismar provided the fibreglas-embedded sign ready to mount.
An interpretive sign describing the life of a fish and how they benefit from the local fish ladder. Concept, design, layout, illustration and map elements by Chrismar, in addition to the final weatherproof sign.
This interpretive sign on the shore of Lake Superior describes how the Lake Superior basin was formed. Original illustrations by Chrismar based on rough conceptual sketches provided by client.
This park in Whitby has a rich historical past, so we were able to help tell the story to passers-by through a combination of historic photographs from city archives, a modern aerial shot and concise text blocks.
This circular interpretive sign, innovatively-mounted to an upright (unused) cement sewer pipe in a remote park, required original photographs and illustrations, all provided by Chrismar following a site visit and survey.
This interpretive sign in northern Ontario was designed to be a colourful introduction to several wildlife themes including local birds and their migration routes, leaf colour changes, fish species and moose life cycles.

Design Options
You Do It All
If you have all the bits (text, photos, artwork), and even a rough idea of a layout,
just send them along. We'll prepare the final layout to a professional standard.

We Do It All
If you have nothing other than an idea (or not even that) we can
research, write, create artwork and prep a layout for your review.
