What Are the Available Materials for Outdoor Hanging Signs?


Dura-Wood is one of the most popular materials for hanging signs. It's resistant against strong winds, rains, and it does well in many of the harshest climates. Dura-Wood is just as flexible in design as it is resistant to weather. This wooden material can be cut into any shape, painted any color, and hung in a variety of ways. Finally, these wood signs can be covered with vinyl designs and edged in plastic to give them a unique look other sign types cannot have.


Aluminum signage is one of the most popular choices for outdoor projection signs. It’s strong, it’s versatile, and it’s remarkably affordable. Aluminum can also be given a number of appearances from a brushed golden look to a fully painted graphically designed surface.


Dibond Custom Signs have the visual beauty of aluminum outdoor signage with added strength. Dibond signs are made of two aluminum sign panels with a solid plastic core that is lightweight but strong. Because Dibond signage can be purchased in a variety of thicknesses, they are excellent for outdoor hanging.


High-Density-Urethane (HDU) is the perfect substitute for wood when you need a carved blade sign. Yet, it’s versatility even goes further than wood. HDU can be carved for dimensional outdoor signage or shaped and painted to look like almost anything. Also, it will never rot or warp outside.

Western Red Cedar

Western Red Cedar has always been a trusted outdoor sign material for businesses as well is home owners. These signs, when stained, have a beautiful natural appearance but can be painted to suit any color design. Cedar signage is always great for dimensional signs and can be carved into a variety of intricate designs.


Custom Vinyl Banners are the most convenient of all the outdoor sign types. Banners can be constructed with almost any graphic design, shipped quickly, and installed by nearly anyone. Outdoor Vinyl banners can also be quickly removed and transported.

Available Types of Outdoor Hanging Signs

Hanging Signs

A classic hanging sign signals your entry into a community of business. On a given downtown street, you might see a dozen of these, hung on chains, swinging with the wind. Due to this popularity, your customers' eyes are already trained on this small space above your business as they pass, looking for a logo as if searching for the next yellow pages entry. Don't miss out on your opportunity to take advantage of this trend!

Blade Signs

Perpendicular to your building and double-sided, these directional signs are impossible to miss from the street or the sidewalk. Blade signs take the tried and true logic of the street sign and apply it to your business's entrance, redirecting your customer traffic to your front door.

Pole Signs

The hanging pole sign is the ideal alternative when you need a sign on your lawn, but a yard sign is just too dinky. Hung from a sturdy metal post, these hanging signs won't be blown away by the wind or stolen by vandals. With a strong material like Dibond or Aluminum, a hanging pole sign will also last a long time.
