The design of your Dibond sign is more than just layout and colors. It is also important to factor in letter size. We provide a letter sizing calculator so you don’t have to guess whether or not your Dibond sign will be readable.
Dibond comes from the factory with a white background. Because of this, your options for background and design colors are basically unlimited. We offer PMS color match too.
If you need a more durable background color for your Dibond sign, we recommend a colored vinyl overlay that is fade resistant. The process is simple. After you’ve selected a vinyl color, we apply it to the cut Dibond before the logo, lettering and design are printed. If you want your entire design applied in vinyl, we can also do that for an additional cost.
A clear UV protective laminate is applied to all of our Dibond signs to protect against weather, sun, pollution, and rust.
Dibond sign finish options are:
- Mirrored Chrome
- Mirrored Gold
- Brushed Silver
- Brushed Gold
- Dry Erase Laminate
- Reflective Colors
- Trim Cap
- Polished Silver Finish
If you need a sign that is larger than that, no worries! Just let us know!
Don’t let your outdoor Dibond sign fade away. Dibond is naturally a strong, weatherproof material that will hold up well against the elements. Combine that with our 4 different durability grades of protective coating, and your Dibond 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 Dibond sign to last? For an indoor Dibond sign, it’s very rare that you would need anything higher than the economy grade. However, if your Dibond 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.
