The design of your ARMOUR-Wood 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.
Edge Capping: All edges of the sign are sealed with a plastic 1/2" cap which not only protects the product from moisture, but also creates a finished framed look.
Edge capping is available in black and white - choose one to match your sign or to create contrast.
ARMOUR-Wood signs can come in any color you want. We print all of our ARMOUR-Wood signs in full color, so there is no fee for additional colors. However, if you select vinyl lettering for the ARMOUR-Wood sign, the cost varies based on the number of colors you use. Also, you can add any design, photo, logo or artwork to your sign at no extra charge. We also offer reﬂective coating so your sign will be easily visible at night.
To permanently seal and protect your ARMOUR-Wood sign and create a finished appearance, the edges of your ARMOUR-Wood sign are capped with white or black plastic trim. The ½” edge cap enhances the appearance of ARMOUR-Wood while protecting the sign from moisture.
Don’t let your outdoor ARMOUR-Wood sign fade away. ARMOUR-Wood is one of the most durable materials out there when it comes to signage. The solid, plywood core makes the sign highly rigid and strong. 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 ARMOUR-Wood 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 ARMOUR-Wood sign to last? For an indoor ARMOUR-Wood sign, it’s very rare that you would need anything higher than the economy grade. However, if your ARMOUR-Wood sign will be displayed outside, we recommend either standard, premium, or ultra-premium grade. The infographic above shows the different levels of fade protection each durability grade offers. We want to make sure you’re getting the product that will fit your needs now and in the future.
