Features

  • Highly durable
  • Outdoor and indoor use
  • Long lifespan
  • Single and double-sided
  • Corrosion-resistant

Material

Aluminum is one of the most durable materials used in the sign-making industry. The material is resistant to all weather conditions and corrosion. Aluminum is perfect for both single and double-sided signs. The borders of aluminum signs can be cut standard, overline, outline or rounded.

Our aluminum signs come with a white background so all the negative space surrounding the graphics makes them pop for a high-contrast look. If you don’t want a solid white color, you can get custom aluminum signs with various background colors.

Printing

Order aluminum signs with your desired graphics on one or both sides of the material. The process goes like this: our CMYK-based digital printers apply UV inks onto the material. The machine dries the inks with a UV curing system as the graphics are being applied. This makes the inks fade and sun-resistant so that your sign will retain its vivid colors for a long time.

Printing options

  • Single-sided

If you want a custom aluminum sign display created with premium materials and inks, we offer a single-sided option at a great value.

  • Double-sided

You can get aluminum signs with graphics on both sides. This provides more visibility and space to express your message.

Cutting

We offer ultra-precise cutting services for your aluminum sign with CNC routers. CNC cutting eliminates waste and reduces errors. These machines provide multi-point cutting tools to produce custom-designed products. The spindle of the CNC router operates at a considerable speed and is perfect for machining a wide range of materials including metal, plastic, glass and wood.

Cutting options

  • Square/Rectangle

If you choose this cutting option, the edges of your aluminum signs will be cut in 90 degree angles, giving them a sharp square or rectangular look.

  • Rounded

With a rounded option, your aluminum sign will be cut into the standard square or rectangle shape but with rounded corners.

  • Outline

If you want your sign to be cut into the exact shape of your design then you can choose the outline cutting option.

  • Overline

With the overline option, your aluminum sign will be cut in the shape of your design with an extra border surrounding it.

Lamination

We offer lamination services for custom aluminum signs upon request. This is done to make the sign even more durable. Lamination adds an extra coating to protect the sign from scratches and abrasion. We offer three types of lamination. 

Lamination options

  • Glossy

This lamination finish not only protects your sign from scratches but also adds a brilliant finish to the sign.

  • Matte

If a glare-free finish is what you need, go with our matte lamination. This option gives the graphics a higher-contrast look.

  • Dry Erase

Often requested by dining industry representatives and corporate businesses, this option turns the surface of the material into a dry erase surface. You can write on it with temporary markers and wipe it off as often as you wish.

FAQs

What is an aluminum sign?

It’s a widely used outdoor and indoor type of commercial sign that’s been available on the market since the 20th century. The aluminum sign is a highly popular medium in the signage industry. It has inherent features no other material can compete with: rigid but flexible, easily shaped and formed, recyclable and non-toxic, thin yet durable. Under standard conditions, it’s also resistant to corrosion.

Where to use aluminum signs?

Aluminum is a versatile material. These custom aluminum signs are most commonly used as traffic, parking, danger, caution and warning signs among others. Aluminum signs can also be used in schools, hospitals, retail stores, patient care centers and banks.

Aluminum signs meet industrial standards and have many uses in offices, around homes and on roads. 

What’s the difference between standard, brushed and reflective aluminum?

Standard aluminum comes with a white coating, enabling us to create any visual graphics on your sign. This makes the sign pop.

Brushed aluminum is made by polishing silver tinted aluminum to give it a unidirectional incision pattern. This brushed effect is ideal for lobby and office signage.

Reflective aluminum is standard aluminum with reflective vinyl graphics attached to it. It’s typically used outdoors for traffic and street signage.

All three types of aluminum are double-sided, which means we can display graphics on one or both sides of the signs if needed.

Does aluminum rust outdoors?

No. Aluminum behaves differently from steel or iron. The latter two rust over time as they react with oxygen or moisture. The more they expand due to humidity, the more red or orange flakes chip away, causing more exposure and faster oxidation.

Aluminum, on the other hand, has a barrier which protects the material from corrosion. This clear coating ensures a perfect look for many years. 

What is the expected lifespan of an aluminum sign?

With proper care and installation, an aluminum sign should last at least 10 years.

What finishes are available for aluminum signs?

Glossy finish tends to give the sign a more brilliant appearance. It provides a unique color glow to the graphics. Matte finish offers a more crisp and high-contrast look. It lifts any picture from ordinary to extraordinary.

To deliver a museum-quality finish with every aluminum sign, we use state-of-the-art machines, quality inks and premium quality aluminum.

How do you hang aluminum signs?

One of the easiest ways to enhance the beauty of your home or corporate workspace is to hang aluminum signs. 

The technique used to hang aluminum signs is crucial for both design and aesthetic purposes. Aluminum signs come ready to hang with an installation diagram based on your selected sizes and fasteners.

Tip 1: As aluminum signs tend to be heavier than their plastic or wooden counterparts, you’ll want to mount them in a safe location.

Tip 2: Ensure your aluminum signs are hung at eye level. 

Tip 3: When using our design tool, choose designs that complement your interior style. 

Tip 4: Select graphics with the highest resolution to ensure a quality sign.
