If you’ve driven around after sunset then you’ve seen reflective signs in use. Street signs, highway signs and stop signs can all be clearly seen at night, even on roads with no streetlights or other cars. These signs use retro-reflection to bounce light from your headlights off the sign and back to you. The cool thing is the same material used by the government to make reflective traffic signs is available to you for your own customized sign. Adding a reflective metal sign to your existing signage is a sound investment - especially for businesses located on heavily traveled traffic routes such as highways, main streets, and industrial areas. There will always be a steady stream of traffic at any hour. Using reflective signs will automatically improve your chances of getting seen and noticed 24 hours a day. Current and future customers will instantly have their attention captured when your message is reflected back at them. With both day and night visibility, your sign will provide double the advertising value of a non-reflective sign. What may not as obvious though is that the lifespan of most reflective signs is more than double that of a standard sign. That means that a 33% price increase results in both longer lifespan and increased visibility for your custom sign.
We offer 3M UV Protective Laminate on these materials:
We don’t place many limits on the size of your reflective sign. Just because your custom sign is reflective doesn’t mean it has to be any certain size.

Having your custom sign made reflective doesn’t limit your options for custom or odd shapes.

All of our reflective sign materials have different thicknesses that you can learn about on their product pages:

It has happened to all of us at least once - you are driving along a dark windy road, GPS is on the fritz, your map offers no help and you have no clue where the turnoff is! Creeping along at well under the speed limit, you start to panic when finally, up ahead, the road sign appears brightly illuminated in your high beams. You sigh a breath of relief and arrive safely at your destination.
If it hadn't been for those reflective metal signs, you might have easily driven miles past your turn off unknowingly, only to have to turn around and hope to find it again. What a pain that would have been!
Now imagine that there is a customer driving around looking for your store or office in the middle of winter when it gets dark so early — or even early morning when dawn has yet to fully approach the horizon. Having a reflective metal sign is certain to not only alert them of your location, but draw the attention of other potential clients as well! Why limit your potential customer base by only being visible during daylight hours? People all around you have different daily schedules - so you never know what early bird or night owl might be looking for a business just like yours.
To allow your company to stand apart from the rest, adding a reflective metal sign to your existing signage is a sound investment - especially for businesses located on heavily traveled traffic routes such as highways and byways, main streets and industrial areas. There will always be a steady stream of traffic at any hour of the day. Using reflective signs will automatically improve your chances of getting seen and noticed 24 hours a day. Current and future customers will instantly have their attention captured when your message is reflected back at them.
Virtually any image you can imagine can be transformed into a custom metal sign! From a custom shape to full-color photos, any design can be digitally printed right onto the bright, reflective surface of the metal sign panel. So even if your business shuts down before dark, your new sign will keep on working tirelessly throughout the night to reinforce your presence in the community.
With both day and night visibility, your sign will provide DOUBLE the advertising value of a non-reflective sign. What may not as obvious though is that the LIFESPAN of reflective metal signs is more than DOUBLE that of standard metal signs! And get this - the reflective surface measures 30% brighter without the use of any electricity providing additional ongoing savings.

Although custom reflective signs are offered by other sign companies, we're not a big fan of utilizing PVC Plastic Sign material outdoors. PVC Plastic Signs are responsive to solar heat which might result in the plastic sign material to warp. Plus, there's hardly any price savings over the predictable qualities of aluminum.
