CUSTOM SIGN SUBSTRATES
As custom sign fabrication specialists, we work with literally dozens of different materials to provide you with the signs you need.
We make signs from natural materials, manmade materials, composites, and much more.
Every sign material option that we provide has its own strengths. That is why consideration of the proper sign material goes beyond look or price.
It is about selecting the material that makes the most sense for your message. Soft Sign Materials Materials can often be described as soft or hard/rigid. Softer materials tend to be better indoors, but that doesn’t imply that all softer materials must be inside. Vinyl mesh banners and vinyl vehicle wraps, for example, are very soft materials that are either laminated or designed to be protected from the elements.
Materials can often be described as soft or hard/rigid. These categories are determined based on how flexible the material is, with a rigid substrate generally having little to no bend while soft substrates have more flex. Softer materials tend to be better indoors, although vinyl mesh banners and vinyl vehicle wraps can be laminated or designed to be protected from the elements.
Examples of soft materials include:
These are only some of the “soft” signs that are available. There are also many other options for indoor signs made out of harder materials.
If soft materials are best for indoor use, then harder materials are usually used outdoors. But once again, don’t necessarily limit yourself to this line of thinking.
There are many hard materials that are commonly if not exclusively used indoors (like several types of plastic, metal, and foam).
Yet in general, harder materials tend to be popular as outdoor signs. Most types of metal, in particular, are very useful as outdoor signs as they naturally resist rain and moisture.
There are many hard materials to choose from that all have different costs and different benefits, so please feel free and ask us at any time if you need help choosing a rigid sign.
Last but not least, Blue Dot Signs is also proud to make many different types of electrical signs.
Many electrical signs use the materials mentioned above, with a light bulb installed somewhere inside or outside of the sign to improve its appearance.
But here at Blue Dot Signs, we can also create several signs that are almost exclusively electrical, including:
As mentioned, we can also create channel letters, light box signs, and other different types of signage that utilize electrical power through installed light bulbs.
In addition to the above materials, we can also mix and match as needed or seek out materials that we do not traditionally use. If you want a neon sign placed into an engraved wooden sign, for example, we’ll create it as long as it is safe to do so. The only limitation is your own creativity. So if you’re interested in custom signs for your business, email Blue Dot Signs today at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us work with your vision to create a sign based on the materials that you need to make your project work.
