Parking signs are thin and smooth, and can be printed single or double-sided.
The design of your parking 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 parking sign will be readable.

Aluminum is one of the most durable metals out there when it comes to signage. Even the government uses aluminum as their go-to for highway, speed limit, and traffic signs. Why? Because aluminum naturally provides it’s own protective coating (aluminum oxide) that prevents rusting. Combine that with the 4 different durability grades of protective coating, and your aluminum 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 parking sign to last? For custom aluminum parking signs, 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.
