When choosing the right sign material for your location, you need to factor in these questions:
- Is the sign inside or outside?
- How long is the sign going to be up?
- Does it need to be illuminated?
- Do you want it to be dimensional?
This section has some of our non-illuminated options to help answer those questions.
Coroplast signs are generally used as a temporary solution. They are made out of a plastic material with channels running through the inside, allowing you to mount on step stakes or just mount with screws or tape. It comes in 3MM and 10MM thickness and several standard colors.
Coroplast signs are the cheapest material that we have, so it is a good solution for yard signs, road construction signs or any other temporary application. We generally will use an intermediate cut vinyl or a non-laminated print for the graphics.
Plastic PVC substrates are usually used for indoor applications. They are a durable, coated plastic that comes in a variety of thicknesses (We stock 1MM styrene, 3MM PVC and 6MM PVC) and colors.
*For outdoor usage use 6MM
PVC signs are a durable cheap option that you can expect to last around 3-5 years indoor with intermediate-quality graphics and 5-7 years indoor with high performance graphics.
*Lasts 1-3 years outdoor, so is not recommended for long-term outdoor use.
Aluminum Composite Signs(ACM)
ACM signs are your high quality, long-lasting, outdoor option. They consist of two aluminum sheets bonded to a non-aluminum core. The 3MM ACM panels are great for building signs and the 6MM Alumalite panels handle better where the wind may be an issue. Both come in a variety of colors.
Aluminum Composite panels are rated to last outdoor for 10 years without fading. We use high performance vinyl graphics, which are rated to last 7-10 years as well, but also have the capability of being removed and redecorated.
We also offer standard flat aluminum signs that come in .040 and .080 thickness with or without rounded corners. These are the standard blanks that you would want to use for permanent parking or directional signs.
Dimensional Letters (Formed Plastic)
Formed plastic letters are the industry standard for making non-illuminated dimensional letters. They are completely customizable to whatever a logo may look like, and is one of the most long-lasting, durable sign solutions on the market, having a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty. They come in 31 standard colors, but can be custom matched for an additional price.
Dimensional Letters (Laser-Cut Acrylic)
Laser-cut acrylic letters are customizable for any application. They can be carved with exact precision, which is handy for small detailed graphics. You can also stack them on top of each other for an added dimension. Thicknesses range from 1/8″ to 1″ and have a lifetime guarantee.
Dimensional Letters (Cast Metal)
Cast metal letters are available in a variety of finishes including painted, brushed aluminum or bronze, anodized, oxidized and can be etched plaques as well. They also have a variety of mounting options that are good for indoor and outdoor usage with a lifetime guarantee.
There are also a multitude of other options that we can certainly do including, but not limited to: sandblasted wood signs, carved foam letters & structures, standoff clear acrylic signs and ADA compliant plastic interior signs.
