If you want to create the perfect outdoor sign for your business, it will be necessary to select the best material. Since you will need your sign to last a long time while also remaining presentable, you will need to find a material that is durable and can be molded with water jet machining in San Francisco, CA to create the look you want to catch customers’ eyes. Here are three great material options for your next sign that will be able to withstand all types of weather with extreme toughness:
- Aluminum: Aluminum is naturally lightweight, which makes it a great material for portable signs that you might need for trade shows or traveling presentations. However, despite its lightweight nature, it is still a great choice for outdoor signs, as it is one of the most durable materials around, with both scratch- and weatherproof properties. Aluminum is also very pliable, meaning that your sign’s shape and size options will be endless. And with the natural shine that aluminum possesses, you can be sure that your sign will look clean and crisp, and that it will attract the attention you are looking for.
- PVC plastic: PVC is a strong plastic material that can be used to make signs for both indoor and outdoor use. PVC plastic is also one of the easiest surfaces to print logos and advertisements on, making the material great for commercial signage. As with aluminum, PVC is weather resistant, and you won’t have to worry about your sign fading or losing its shine while it is outside. PVC signs are on the heavier side and they might not be the best material for mobile signs, but it is this added heft that will give reinforced stability to any signs you keep outdoors. PVC plastic is also highly customizable, giving you various color, size and thickness options to choose from and ensuring that you will be able to have your sign crafted specifically to your company’s desire.
- Dibond: Dibond is a combination of plastic sandwiched in between two aluminum pieces, making it one of the strongest materials available for sign making. Merging the best of both worlds, Dibond is also one of the most durable materials yet, being rust-, water- and rot-proof. You can expect your sign to last for many years to come.
