When creating a new sign for your business, there are a ton of decisions that need to be made; what colors to use, what it will say, among many others. What most fail to consider is what material are they going to have it made on? Options for this include plastic, wood, acrylic, aluminum, corrugated plastic and more. Due to the fact that aluminum and corrugated plastic are by far the most popular options, we’ll go into some the differences and benefits of the two in this article.
One of the main benefits of an aluminum sign is its durability. The chances of it flying away in a wind storm or becoming easily damaged are very little. They can also withstand rain and snow without any damage. However, they are more expensive and can be difficult to move around. This just means that they are a better option for more permanent signage, such as ones mounted on the side of your business. Aluminum signs tend to look more professional as well, especially when they are used outside your business. These signs are very heavy and cannot easily be shipped so it’s important to consider the added cost before ordering.
Corrugated plastic signs are a great option for signage that is constantly being moved around, such as open house signs or lawn care businesses. They are light weight and easy to store when not in use. Also, you can purchase different frames for them which can make them more professional looking rather than just the wire frame they typically come with. When you need to buy large quantities, corrugated plastic is your best bet. Sign makers often have deals on bulk orders so the more you order, the more you save. They can withstand different weather and won’t be ruined by rain or snow and so long as they are secured properly, wind should not be a problem. However, these signs are more likely to get scratched or damaged during transportation so it is important to do so carefully.
Regardless of which option you choose, aluminum signs as well as corrugated signs are both great options for business signage. Always be sure to consider where you’ll be using the signs and how often you will be moving them before you make a decision. Take these tips and facts into consideration and you’ll be sure to come home with a great sign for your business!
