Product Information for Custom Outdoor Business Signs

What are the 7 best sign materials for outdoor use?
Here is the definitive list of the top 7 business sign materials used to manufacture outdoor signs:

1. Dibond
Invented in 1965, Dibond has stood the test of time outside as one of the most durable construction materials available in the entire sign industry. Rigid, aluminum-plated Dibond custom sign panels are:

  • Unusually versatile
  • Strong
  • Waterproof
  • UV stable, and
  • Unaffected by hot & cold temperature extremes.

2. Alumalite
The engineered, honeycomb structure of Alumalite provides 240% greater panel strength for areas prone to high winds. The impressive, weather-resistant characteristics of Alumalite signs are the same as Dibond.

For rectangular or square shapes, Alumalite remains one of the best materials to use for exterior signs. Other types of materials are preferred when custom sign shapes are required.

Custom Sign Shapes

Your options for Custom Outdoor Signs:

 

  • Aluminum: Custom aluminum signs are strong, lightweight and super durable. Aluminum is the thinnest of all metal sign composites.
  • Alumalite: Alumalite is a metal sign panel made of a corrugated plastic core sandwiched between 2 large aluminum sign boards.
  • Dibond: Dibond is a metal sign panel made of a solid plastic core sandwiched between 2 large aluminum sign boards.
  • ARMOUR-Wood: ARMOUR-Wood is a metal sign panel made of a solid wood core sandwiched between 2 large aluminum sign boards. This is the strongest metal sign composite.
  • Coroplast: These are made from a durable corrugated plastic and are therefore extremely lightweight. They are also waterproof, making them preferable to foam core mounting board, and more professional looking than poster board.
  • Dura-Wood: These classic wooden signs are still popular for a number of reasons. They are extremely strong and weather resistant. We also use rot-safe wood.
  • A-Frames: A-frames (also called sandwich boards) are a sharp looking and easy-to-install way to display your outdoor signs on sidewalks or in the center of town plazas. We have a wide selection of styles and sizes for your signage.

A wall sign's price varies on size, material, finish and how you are attaching it.

Outdoor signage is one of the most important ways to promote your business. It can help people find you easily and teach them learn about your brand. 

It depends on what kind of sign you are interested in, be it channel lettering or a real estate sign. The most popular sizes for outdoor signs are 10” x 12”, 24” x 36”, “48 x 48” & “48 x 96”, among others.

Outdoor signs can be hung in many different ways, from custom-lighted cabinets to classic brackets or screws.

A lighted sign is highly visible at night. Signs like channel letters will catch the eyes of passersby long after the sun has set.

No sign is truly weatherproof, though there are ways to make one weather resistant. One of the most important things to consider when purchasing an outdoor sign is solar protection. Without any protection, your sign will quickly fade.

There is no special term for outdoor signs, though you may hear the words “exterior” or “outdoor” used interchangeably with “outside.”

There are many different kinds of outdoor signs, whether they be channel letters or real estate signs. Size and illumination are two factors that affect the cost of a sign.

You can separate outdoor signs into traditional and digital. The latter category are primarily screens, while the former are essentially those without screens – aluminum signs, channel lettering, etc.

One of the ways you can mount a sign without screws or nails is to use command strips, which don’t leave any markings on the wall.

There are many ways to install an outdoor sign because it all depends on where you want to put it. It could be as simple as sticking a sign in your yard or mounting dimensional letters to a wall.

Channel letters are a type of three-dimensional signage. Most channel letters are illuminated so they are visible during the day and even more so at night. Their name is derived from the channel in each letter, which houses the illumination.

“Solar protection” refers to material that affects a sign’s fade resistance. Most signs fade after 2 years if they are not protected.

In order to keep your sign from fading, you need a UV protective laminate. Depending on the laminated, a sign can go 3 years or all the way up to 10 years without fading
