Custom Roadside Signs

All across the nation, along every road and highway, you will find roadside signs advertising just about anything and everything. Here at, we can create all types of custom roadside signs, from traditional rectangular or square-shaped signs to portable graphics signs to the most unique, custom shapes you can think of. We are able to do this because we specialize in a wide range of outdoor sign materials including Aluminum, Dibond, Alumalite, Armour-Wood, Lighted Sign Faces, Coroplast, Banners, and many more. Whichever custom material you choose for your custom roadside signs, you'll never make a wrong turn with!


Some common uses for roadside custom signs are:

  • Grand Opening Signs
  • Coming Soon Signs
  • Directional and Navigational Signs
  • Real Estate Signs
  • Lawn Plaques
  • Monument Signs


The design of your roadside 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 roadside sign will be readable.

Design options for roadside signs are:

  • PMS Color Match
  • Brushed Silver Finish
  • Brushed Gold Finish
  • Polished Silver Finish
  • Custom Hole Placement
  • Custom Shapes
  • Rounded Corners
  • Dry Erase Laminate
  • Reflective Colors
  • Trim Cap



Material options for roadside signs can be broken into two categories.

1) Long-lasting roadside advertising signs

  • ARMOUR-Wood is your top choice if you are mounting your roadside sign between two posts, as it has the most rigid panel strength of all sign materials. The sign panel is made of a solid wood core that is factory sealed on both sides with an aluminum Armour-Plate shield.
  • Dura-Wood is a less expensive alternative to ARMOUR-Wood. Dura-Wood is a high-quality Medium Density Overlay (MDO) plywood core factory sealed with a durable painted finish. Unlike ARMOUR-Wood, a Dura-Wood sign can be cut into any custom shape.
  • Sandblasted Cedar is a luxurious, dimensional roadside advertising sign option.
  • Aluminum is strong, light-weight, and among the most durable of all sign materials. An aluminum roadside sign will never rot or deteriorate and does not rust like steel or tin.
  • Dibond is made from two factory-painted sheets of aluminum that are permanently bonded to a high-density plastic core.
  • Alumalite is similar in construction to Dibond. Alumalite is two factory-painted sheets of aluminum permanently bonded to a corrugated plastic core.
  • Sandblasted HDU is a lightweight and durable foam made especially for producing signs. HDU can be formed into a dimensional signs similar to cedar, but is less expensive and easier to produce, ship and install.
  • Replacement Sign Faces come in three plastic options with different strength ratings. They are great for updating or replacing signs in an existing lighted cabinet.

2) Short-term roadside advertising signs

  • Coroplast is a cost-effective option for outdoor roadside signs. It is a tough, waterproof, corrugated plastic material which resembles the appearance of plastic cardboard. Although Coroplast has a high tolerance for temperature extremes, it is not meant for long-term outdoor use.
  • Vinyl banners are one of the most popular and versatile roadside signs available and are well suited for outdoor use. Vinyl banner’s ability to hold up to rain and extreme hot and cold temperatures.
  • Mesh banners are well-suited for areas with high winds.



We offer more colors for Roadside Signs than anyone out there on the web!

  • You can now choose from ANY color under the sun when designing your new signage.
  • You can even choose a reflective color.
  • Available in brushed silver finish, brushed gold finish, and polished silver finish.
  • PMS Color Match available on most materials.



While all of our roadside signs are made with high-quality, long-lasting material, sometimes you need more protection than what the material naturally provides. We offer 4 different durability grades of protective coating for aluminum, Alumalite, Dibond, Dura-wood, and ARMOUR-wood signs. These protective coatings can keep your signs vibrant and weather-proof for up to 10 years. At, 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. However, TheSignChef offers 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 you realize you want a new look, you’ve paid for more durability than you need. So how long will you want your metal sign to last? For an extended use roadside sign, 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 both now and in the future.
