Custom signage is critical for any business, especially for companies with customer-facing operations. Perhaps because of this, there are many different materials that you can have a sign made of. For that reason, you need to think long and hard about the kinds of materials that will go into how you present your business. Foamcoreprint.com is here to help answer any questions you may have as you examine all our products and decide which is best for your business.
One of the most aesthetically appealing yet durable materials is brushed aluminum. Brushed aluminum comprises a durable polyethylene core and two aluminum sheets on either side. Aluminum has a metallic brush finish that creates a beautiful and professional appearance. The solid polyethylene core adds much more durability than a few aluminum sheets would otherwise provide by themselves without ruining the presentation. For this reason, brushed aluminum is one of the most popular types of material used today for business aluminum signs.
** NOTE All FoamCorePrints's Brushed aluminum is 1/8" ACM material; for more information about ACM material's specs, please read the FAQ at the bottom.
