Metal signs are some of the best-looking, most durable, and most highly sought after types of signage. Yet most metal signs can be more expensive than competing materials, such as plastic or wood-based. Dibond signs are an aluminum composite material that combines the resilience of metal with the affordability of other materials and can be easily customized with graphics, shapes, and more.
For custom aluminum composite signs, Blue Dot Signs uses state of the art technology and a team of talented technicians to create any sign needed by businesses in NJ and NYC. Contact Blue Dot Signs today at 908-486-7000 or via our website to receive a quote for our sign services.
Dibond signs make the resilience and aesthetic attractiveness of metal signage affordable and practical by combining aluminum with a plastic core. Whether it’s used for a small nameplate, large lobby sign, indoor menu board, outdoor real estate sign, Dibond signs are a high-quality choice of sign that offers an effective alternative to other metals and is able to be customized through printing.
Examples of 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.
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:
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.
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:
In addition, the aluminum material makes for especially easy to read signs for both full color designs or monochrome text and graphics.
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:
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.
