Aluminum can be printed in color and generally has to do with a specific message or instruction (ex., “Resident Parking Only”) verses a detailed advertisement or display.

    I'm looking for a sign for my business. Actually several signs. Assuming I want a DiBond sign, with text only, Item A) 3 feet by 5 feet Item B) 4 feet by 8 feet The text will be the name of our business and the address. Is there a reason we cannot use foam core outside? Does it fade or deteriorate?
