A frequent question consumers have is deciding between Aluminum signs and Dibond signs (read more about Dibond signs here).
Dibond signs are the ones you see as traffic signs. Dibond is a pre-painted enamel surface with a center core, which can be made into multiple shapes and colors, personalized or printed with customized photos, logos, or imagining. Dibond stands out for its weather resistance to the elements and ability to change its appearance by designing and formulating a signature look. Primarily an outdoor sign, it has a rigid composite surface that is patented but still lightweight and user-friendly. Given the option, Dibond is often a premiere first choice as a multi-use sign. Size And Shapes: Dibond comes in 1/8” and 1/4”
Yes, Dibond is considered a customizable and modern fine-tuned design, but Aluminum has been around for a long time and will continue to be a popular option for its strength and reliability. To visualize an Aluminum Sign, think of a parking or road sign or license plate. Aluminum can be printed in color and generally has to do with a specific message or instruction (ex., “Resident Parking Only”) versus a detailed advertisement or display. While Dibond is sometimes used indoors, Aluminum Signs are almost always outdoor-use signs which are resilient and present a more industrial and simplified look. The benefit of Aluminum’s durability is that it will look great for years to come. It can be single or double-sided. Aluminum signs come in .032”.
