What Are Aluminum Signs?

 

Our aluminum signs are made of two pre-painted sheets of .008″ aluminum with a solid polyethylene core (for a total thickness of approximately 1/13 inches). They are weather resistant and work great for a variety of uses including property, retail, manufacturing, and real estate signage.

Options for your aluminum signs can include cut to shape signs, drilled holes for easy hanging, and single or double-sided printing.

Common sizes for aluminum signs include: 12″x12, 24″x6″, 18″x24″, 2’x2′, 4’x4′ and more.

Weather Resistant

Our aluminum signs are intended to be used both indoors and outdoors. Though there is no laminate covering, they are weather resistant, will not rust, and will stand the test of time no matter where you use them. These 13.5 gauge metal signs are thick enough to be durable but thin enough to be gorgeous no matter the setting.

Custom Shape Options

Your aluminum sign can be cut to shape in several different ways. Our Custom shape option cuts your sign to the exact edge that you want. Our Custom with Border option likewise cuts your sign to a specific shape but leaves a small border around the edge of your sign. You can also choose to have your aluminum sign cut with rounded corners or as a circle/oval. All of these options can be selected on our design tool during the ordering process.

Installation

Aluminum signage can be hung, installed on a wall or placed in stands or frames. If optional drilled holes aren’t selected, holes can be easily drilled using a metal drill bit. Use rope, string, or bungees to hang, use screws with washers to attach to wood or concrete or use nuts and bolts to attach to posts.

Care

Simply wipe your aluminum signs with soap and water using a non-abrasive cloth. To keep the signs from denting or warping, do not install them where heavy winds could blow them into other objects.

What Are Brushed Aluminum Signs?

Brushed aluminum signs, the ultimate in durability and aesthetics, are made by printing any image, graphic, or design directly onto a 3mm brushed aluminum e-panel material. This material has a brushed face and is composed of two sheets of aluminum with a reinforced polyethylene core. This makeup allows for maximum durability while providing the appearance of stainless steel at a fraction of the price.

Designed for both internal and external use, brushed aluminum signs are commonly used to display business names, logos, suite numbers, titles, and general information. They are great for lobby and receptionist areas, stores, waiting rooms, internal offices, hallways, bathrooms, and more. Brushed aluminum signs are also popular as restroom, exit, handicap, and maximum occupancy signs.

What are Reflective Aluminum Signs?

Reflective aluminum signs are metal signs with a reflective nature, allowing them to be visible both day and night. The sign itself is composed of an inner polyethylene core sandwiched between two sheets of .008″ aluminum (providing maximum durability). An Engineer Grade reflective vinyl overlay is then applied to the face of the sign, giving the sign a level of reflectivity that can last over 5 years.

These signs are most commonly used outdoors and work great as parking signs, as they meet the requirements set forth by the DOT regarding parking signage. They can also be used as non-critical street/road signs, no trespassing signs, address signs, security/surveillance signs, safety and regulation signs, real estate signs, property signs, directional signs and more.

What Are Yard Signs?

Our 4mm corrugated plastic yard signs with vertical fluting (fluting is vertical up to 48”) offer a durable and versatile outdoor signage solution. Yard signs can be displayed with optional wire stakes added during the order process, installed in frames (available for 24″x18″ yard signs common to real estate uses) or hung or propped in a variety of ways.

Yard signs are most commonly used in lawns and alongside roads as political advertising, business services promotion, real estate signage and more. They also work great as informational signs, yard sale signs, announcements, and for directing attendees to weddings and other events.

Yard signs can be single or double-sided, cut to shape and have wire stakes added for display purposes.

The most common sizes include: 24″x6″, 24″x18″, 18″x12″, 36″x18″, 2’x2′, 4’x4′.

Display Options

Our yard signs can be displayed in a variety of ways, with each providing an easy way to effectively promote your business or event.

Wire Stakes

Wire stakes are light enough to prevent exorbitant shipping costs and prohibit portability but durable enough to be pushed into a soft surface. With careful use, wire stakes can be removed with your signs and reused for future display needs.

We offer two different versions of wire stakes; standard and heavy duty. Standard wire stakes are made out of 9 gauge steel, whereas heavy duty stakes have a base made from 1/4″ steel with a welded top made from 9 gauge steel. Heavy duty stakes provide additional stability against wind and other elements and help keep your sign standing tall for a longer period of time.

What are Falconboard Signs?

Falconboard Signs

Falconboard signs are a durable interior sign that can be used for a variety of purposes. The construction of the material is comprised from a kraft honeycomb core sandwiched between two white cardstock paper faces. Falconboard signs are most commonly used as point of purchase display, retail graphics and exhibits, mounted displays, trade show graphics, presentation boards, and other interior displays.

Falconboard is ½” thick and is great for custom shapes and sizes. The thickness not only provides a good rigid print surface, but also makes it easy to display in several ways including mounting, hanging from drilled holes or building a display structure from multiple printed pieces. Digital UV printing on falconboard signs means that no matter how many colors or how detailed your print design, it will come out crisp and beautiful everytime!
