What material should I use for my sign?
There is a huge range of materials and brand names available in the UK sign market and choosing the right material for the application can be fiddly & you will need to take into account things such as durablitity & lifetime alongside cost & how your sign will be installed.
To make it as easy as possible here are the key materials we use frequently:
Correx signs or corrugated signs are made using a fluted plastic board in that is available in varying thicknesses. Correx is cheap and lightweight and most suited to temporary signs such as event markers or short term advertising site boards.
Foamboard signs or foamex signs are made using a solid but porous plastic board. Perfect for budget signs and safety signs this material can stand the test of time.
Alupanel / Composite / Dibond / Ralabond signs
All of the above are effectively the same type of material and formed of a panel made form a sandwich of 2 thin aluminium faces (the bread) with a layer of plastic between then ( the filling). This material is tough but also lightweight and available in a range of finishes and thicknesses. Our everyday go-to material for large panels that need some rigidity but also need to stand up to external elements.
Perspex signs and Acrylic signs
With gorgeous deep colours that last the test of time these non-permeable 'plastic' materials are the choice for serious signs that mean business. Acrylic and perspex can also be routered to form individual plastic letters that are mounted or raised from another base-panel or directly from walls or fascias leaving no 'background'.
Solid aluminium signs are made from... solid aluminium. Normally 3mm thick these tough metal signs are used for large free standing panels (think traffic signs) other post mounted systems. Aluminium is at the top end of the cost-scale but will probably last longer than anything around it.
