Types of Sign Materials

When designing the right sign for your business, choosing the right signage material is an important part of the custom signage process. Durability, aesthetic, cost and flexibility are all factors to consider when exploring sign materials. Each material offers various benefits depending on the purpose of your new sign. 

Sign Materials: Indoors vs OutdoorsWood Signs | Wood

Outdoor sign materials are often chosen for their durability and strength as they have to stand up against weather, increased sun exposure and other elements that indoor signs are protected from. The biggest difference between indoor and outdoor signage comes down to how long you want the sign to last in your chosen location. Certain sign materials hold up better and longer than others, so it is important to think about that when choosing the right material for your project.

Metal Signs

If your main goal is durability, metal signs are a great sign material option. They also offer an attractive look and affordability that is ideal for most businesses. We offer custom aluminum signs, metal cutout signs, steel signs and engraved metal signs. These signs can be used indoors or outdoors and offer a wide variety of design options for creating a sign that represents your brand and meets your needs.

Wooden Signs

Wooden signs are the perfect sign material choice for adding a unique touch to your business and creating a warm, inviting atmosphere. These signs are a timeless, classic option that can work for companies in a wide variety of industries – from housing developments and communities to office spaces and parks. With new engraving, routing, and shape-cutting techniques, there are tons of ways to customize a wooden sign and create a design that works for you. Whether you want to show off your logo in full color or simply display business information, they are a popular option for both indoor and outdoor use.

Acrylic and Plastic Signs

Acrylic and plastic are popular sign materials for displays, showcases and other signage. Acrylic signs with large logos and taglines are often seen in lobbies and reception areas to welcome visitors. They are also used to create clear wayfinding systems inside buildings.
