What Material Should I Use?

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

Picking the right material for your sign can be confusing. Luckily, we can help! Here’s a quick rundown of our four main sign materials and their benefits…

CORRUGATED PLASTIC

This is our basic economy sign material. Corrugated plastic is a lightweight, fluted material great for temporary signage and yard signs. It is ideal for quick signage you need to last for a few days, weeks or months. Corrugated plastic is also the only material that can be used with our step stakes. The step stakes simply slide into the flutes to create a yard-ready sign. Not every sign needs to last forever, so for all your short term signage needs, go Corrugated Plastic.

DURAPLAST

Unlike the fluted nature of Corrugated Plastic, Duraplast is a solid sheet of thin plastic. What this means is you will get a clearer, prettier looking sign since there are no flutes to cause vertical lines. Another benefit of Duraplast is the material is able to bend without creasing. Since there are no flutes, an upgraded frame or stand must be used for mounting. Duraplast is a great option for those looking for a step up from basic Corrugated Plastic signs.

RIGIBOND

Rigidbond is our other metal option. What makes Rigidbond different from Aluminum is the solid plastic core sandwiched between two thin Aluminum faces. This creates a stiffer, more rigid material. When you start ordering larger signs, you may notice they move around and wobble in the wind a bit. Sturdy Rigidbond is heavy and stiff making it great for maintaining its look in windier weather. This material is ideal for use with vinyl arm posts for a sleek, professional look.

ALUMINUM

Aluminum is a popular option when you want your sign to last. Where plastic materials have an average life span of 3 to 6 months, Aluminum can last up to 2 years if taken care of properly. This material is metal meaning it is extremely durable! The white primer coating used on the face of the material helps ink stick, keeping your art from falling apart from over exposure to outdoor elements. Aluminum may be a bigger investment initially, but in the long run you end up saving on costs of reordering shorter term signage.

Hopefully this all helps in selecting the right material for your needs! For more help, comments or concerns feel free to reach out to us as we are always willing to help!
