Our Pricing Calculator allows you to see how your sign will look next to an actual person. Enter the dimensions of the sign you want and the calculator will adjust the red sign in the graphic in proportion to a six-foot-tall person. Once you have the right size, select your desired material, quantity, and thickness. The calculator will give you a price before you have even added the sign to your shopping cart. Customize your sign exactly the way you want it.
Aluminum can be thinner and lighter than any other material.
