Business signs come in a wide array of shapes, sizes, and types. Depending on how they are made, these signs also offer different kinds of benefits and advantages. Choosing which material for signage you want to invest in can be overwhelming, as the list of options may seem endless. This is why we have offered some of our favorite materials, as well as why they are favorites.

Acrylic Signs

These visual communication tools are fabricated from plexiglass sheets that can be transparent, frosted, or tinted in various colors. With how elegant they look, you might be surprised by how durable, weather-resistant, shock-resistant, and long-lasting they are. Because of these qualities, many business owners use them for both indoor and outdoor building signage solutions.

For acrylic plaques, we offer surface printing to achieve a traditional look. However, if you want to showcase unique three-dimensional designs, we provide subsurface printing as well. Acrylic materials can also be trimmed and shaped into dimensional letters, which are great for labelling rooms, displaying directional cues, showcasing your trademark, and more.

Aluminum Signs

If you are looking for sign materials that look sleek, timeless, and cutting-edge simultaneously, we highly recommend that you use aluminium. They are weather-resistant and sturdy, yet lightweight and versatile. They can be turned into indoor and outdoor signage solutions, such as engraved metal plaques and metal dimensional letters. These signs are perfect for office spaces because of their professional visual appeal.

Coroplast Signs

For those who want to put up short to medium-term signs, you should have them made with high-quality coroplast. They are fabricated from twin-wall polypropylene sheets that are lightweight, eye-catching, and inexpensive. These business signs are perfect for displaying menu items, upcoming events, wayfinding cues, and other temporary promotional advertisements.

Treated Wood Signs

Normal wood is not recommended for signage, as it easily withers and shows damage, especially when installed indoors. This is why we only use high-quality treated wood materials for signage solutions. This prevents you from continually spending money on maintenance and replacements. With these, you can still obtain a classic and rustic aesthetic without worrying about additional costs on your end.

Dibond Signs

If you’re unfamiliar with Dibond as an outdoor signage material, it’s time to change that. It is an aluminum composite that comes with a solid polyethene core housed between thin gauge aluminum on both sides. Signs made from this tend to be lightweight, yet rigid and durable, making them suitable for long-term outdoor use.

Vinyl Building Signage

Vinyl is one of the most versatile and cost-effective sign materials available in the market. It transforms ordinary flat surfaces and existing assets into eye-catching and highly impactful signs. For example, vinyl murals can be installed on windows, floors, and walls to improve your establishment’s ambience and create a branded environment. Vinyl decals are perfect for announcing special promotions, store hours, catchy slogans or phrases, and more.
