Vendor Information: Since 1870 Tablet Ticket has been known for quality products. From the beginning we have met the needs of designers owners and users by providing the products that others do not offer. As the pioneer of architectural signage and building directories Tablet Ticket patented the first strip type directory in 1895. Early units were found in the Manadnock Reliance Tribune Wrigley Merchandise Mart and Empire State buildings along with hundreds of others. Tablet Ticket also held the patents on the first rear illuminated directories around 1940. Today we still are the leaders of custom designed and sized directories.
