12" x 18" Sign

Corrugated is best because its weather-tough, durable construction avoids repeat sign replacement costs. For longer lasting signage, consider an aluminum sign. Its 0.040" white smooth enamel clad aluminum ensures long, maintenance free service.

48" x 48" Sign

At a jobsite or along fast rural roads, a 48x48 corrugated sign is the best choice. It’s large enough to contain effective messaging at a far distance and fast speed. It’s also weather-resistant, helping you look professional (and readable!) in dry or wet conditions.

48" x 96" Sign

For the largest format full color sign at an affordable price, consider a 4' x 8' corrugated sign. Mount it on a building, on poles, or request grommeting to hang it. Its plastic design keeps it looking professional in all kinds of weather and avoids constant replacement costs.

If you want a sign that will last years, upgrade to an alumalite sign. It's the highest quality 4' x 8' sign available. Alumalite is a strong, aluminum composite panel made of a high density corrugated polyallomer (CPA) core that will not swell, corrode, rot, wick water, or delaminate even under prolonged water exposure.

Factory-baked polyester painted aluminum faces add high gloss brilliance and rigidity. Will not crack, chip, flake or peel. When properly mounted between two posts, alumalite signs will withstand even the most extreme wind conditions. Sunlight stable inks are used, so your sign will retain a crisp, professional look even after extended outdoor exposure.

Smaller signs are adequate (and sometimes mandated) in urban neighborhoods. On busy commercial streets, larger signs would be more noticeable. Large billboard signs are most effective in rural areas.
