The design of your Alumalite sign is more than just its layout and colors. It is also important to factor in the size of the text. We provide a letter sizing calculator so you don’t have to worry about your sign being readable.
If you find yourself hosting yearly yard sales, a long-lasting, weather-resistant, reusable set of Alumalite signs will save you time. Customized home decor signs are very popular; our Man Cave signs are big sellers. Alumalite is a great material for backyard, kitchen and pool signs.
If you need an outdoor sign with high rigidity, an Alumalite sign is a great choice. Alumalite sheets are relatively light in weight, impermeable to weather, and an excellent choice when mounting or mobility requirements prevent the use of a heavier plastic or wood sign material.
While Alumalite signs are attractive and professional looking, you can add a more polished look with the addition of edge capping. Edge capping comes in a variety of colors and helps to enhance the presentation of your new Alumalite sign. The addition of edge capping creates the illusion of a solid sheet of aluminum, with the added benefits of Alumalite.
Alumalite signs can come in any color you want. We print all of our Alumalite signs in full color, so there is no fee for additional colors. Also, you can add any design, photo, logo or artwork to your sign at no extra charge. However, if you select vinyl lettering the cost will vary based on the number of colors.
Don’t let your outdoor Alumalite sign fade away. Alumalite is one of the most durable materials out there when it comes to signage. The rigid plastic core makes the sign highly rigid yet lightweight. The two outer sheets of aluminum naturally provide their own protective coating (aluminum oxide) that prevents rusting. Combine this with the 4 different durability grades of protective coating, and your Alumalite sign can stay vibrant and weather-proof for 10 or more years.
At TheSignChef.com, we’ll tell you “don’t over-buy or under-buy.” But what does that mean? Other sign companies have a habit of only selling their customers one durability option, regardless of the customers’ specific needs. Most are hesitant to quantify just how long their signs will last, and those that do will often limit the sign’s lifespan to 5 years or less. This often results in you receiving a sign that is built (and priced) to last far longer or shorter than you really need, leading to frustration and higher costs on your end. We, however, offer 4 different durability grades for our custom signs, from economy to ultra premium. There are pros and cons to each durability grade. For example, while the initial cost of an economy grade sign is less than ultra-premium, if you end up needing to replace your sign every few years, you pay more in the long run. On the flip side, if you invest in an ultra-premium grade sign, but 3 years in realize you want a new look, you’ve paid for more durability than you need. So how long will you want your Alumalite sign to last? For an indoor Alumalite sign, it’s very rare that you would need anything higher than an economy grade. However, if your Alumalite sign will be displayed outside, we recommend either standard, premium, or ultra-premium grade.
