Dibond Signs Sign panels continue to be a leading choice for weatherproof outdoor signage. For small signs, the 1/8” thick material is most commonly used. For larger business signs, the ¼" thickness provides far greater rigidity and material strength.
Alumalite & AlumaCorr™ Sign materials in the 3/8” thickness, provide even greater panel strength. The structured, engineered core provides similar rigidity to ½” thick MDO wooden signs.
Aluminum Signs remain a top choice amongst buyers and sign manufacturer’s alike. From thin, lightweight custom signs to thick-cut metal letters and logos, aluminum is one of the most versatile materials in the sign industry.
ARMOUR-Wood Signs are made of a high-strength, wind resistant sign material. To produce this unique. ½” thick sign material, aluminum is permanently bonded to both sides of the solid wood core.
Dura-Wood Signs are just like ARMOUR-Wood, but without the aluminum armor plating. The 2 most common thicknesses are ½” and ¾”. This marine grade plywood - also known as MDO – has been a staple in the sign industry for over 50 years!
Western Red Cedar is today’s most popular material for carved, wooden signs. Cedar has the same characteristics and longevity outdoors, as redwood, at a lower price point. Cedar wood is naturally resistant to rot and insects. When cedar is sand-carved or sandblasted, the grain of the wood produces a beautiful, authentic carved appearance.
Sandblasted Redwood used to be the most popular product for sandblasted signs. Authentic, top-grade, vertical grain redwood is now in short supply. Fortunately, Western Red Cedar produces comparable results, and is actually preferred since it is a harder wood.
HDU is an acronym for High Density Urethane. The most notable characteristic of this dense,synthetic sign material is its workability. HDU can be cut, carved and worked like wood, but with the indestructible characteristics of a dense, solid plastic. High dimensional, outdoor signs and 3-D letters are often produced using popular product.
