What are Dibond Signs?

Dibond signs are constructed of two 0.012” thick aluminum sheets attached to a core made of solid polyethylene. These aluminum composite signs are stronger and less flexible than regular aluminum signs, making them fit for any outdoor or indoor sign, capable of withstanding the elements for a long lasting display. They are also about half the weight of pure aluminum sheeting. Dibond signs make the resilience and aesthetic attractiveness of metal signage affordable and practical by combining aluminum with a plastic core.

Options for Custom Aluminum Composite Signs

Whether dibond is used for a small nameplate, large lobby sign, indoor menu board, outdoor real estate sign, they are a high-quality choice of sign that offers an effective alternative to other metals and is able to be customized through printing.

The brushed aluminum of dibond provides a smooth, non-porous, and luminous surface. When graphics are printed directly onto the dibond, this luminosity gives the colors clarity and vibrancy. Almost any detail of a dibond sign can be personalized to your business’s brand and signage needs. This includes: 

  • Contour Cut Dibond Signs - Each sign is cut to the needed size and shape with an automated process on a CNC-router. This technology uses a computer to transmit the required design to a programmed router which trims the metal accordingly. A router leaves non-sharp edges.
  • Printed Dibond Signs - Any graphic can be printed onto one or both sides of a dibond sign with digital printing. Graphics are rendered with UV inks that provide a range of colors and defined gradients for photograph printing. The inks are fade resistant to last as long as the dibond.
  • Custom Pantone Matched Colors - To match a specific color used in your business logo or design, Pantone color matching locates the correct color code for printing.
  • CNC Router Drilled Holes For Installation - Dibond signs are often wall-mounted or pole mounted. Using a CNC router, holes are drilled into the appropriate places for installation. These signs are also light enough that smaller ones can be fixed to a wall with adhesive backing or Velcro.
  • Finishing Options - Dibond has options for matte and glossy finishes, including a brushed aluminum on signs where the metal is part of the final design. It is also possible to laminate signs with a reflective coating for use outdoors at night.

Many of the customization options for dibond signs are determined by where the sign will be installed and what graphics it will display. Every dibond sign has strong UV resistance and is waterproof. A sign will not break, scratch, or bend. Dibond can withstand temperatures up to approximately 180 degrees fahrenheit, but should be kept away from heat sources warmer than that.

Benefits of Dibond in Signage

Aluminum composite signs share many of the qualities of other durable metal signs, but also bring their own benefits. Whether used as outdoor signs and indoor signs, Dibond signs have: 

  • Resistance to Damage – Aluminum and solid plastic combo signs are naturally resistant to breaking, bending, warping, rot, rust, water, chemicals, and extreme temperatures.  
  • Cost-Effectiveness – Dibond signs cost less than metal signs, and yet are stronger than some types of metal signs and almost all non-metal alternatives. Also, with personalized finishes, Dibond signs can be made to look almost identical to metal. 
  • Customizability – The physical and aesthetic flexibility of aluminum allows for a wider range of customizable details than some types of metal signs. 
  • Lightweight – Dibond signs are lighter than most metal signs, and are thus easier to install, move, and store.  

In addition, the aluminum material makes for especially easy to read signs for both full color designs or monochrome text and graphics.  

Businesses Using Dibond Signs

A dibond sign can be used wherever a durable sign is needed, indoors or outdoors. They can be printed with vibrant designs and will work for promotion, artistry, or to provide directions. Those that frequently use dibond signs include:

  • Event Planners
  • Restaurant Owners
  • Designers
  • Retailers
  • Art Galleries
  • Display Makers

The artistic possibilities of dibond signs with photo-realistic printing and color variation makes dibond a material often chosen for displays. Because of its light weight and durability, it can be easily moved when needed. You can find these signs at trade shows, or used as street signs by municipalities.
