What are Custom Aluminum Signs?
Custom Aluminum Signs are made using long-lasting aluminum metal sheets. This heavy-duty yet lightweight material is able to withstand rust, rot, and chemicals.
With such a tough exterior, these signs have a remarkably clean, sleek, and sophisticated appearance. They are fitting for much more than road signs! Since they can last up to decades, it’s great to use it as an official outdoor business sign. Many businesses mount or hang their custom aluminum signs on well designed wooden posts, brick pillars, or even directly above their storefront.
Custom aluminum signs include designs cut into the aluminum and custom shapes.
Top Benefits of Custom Aluminum Signs
As one of the longest-lasting outdoor-friendly sign options on the market, the durability of custom aluminum signs is one of their biggest draws. They do not rust or rot like some other materials will. Plus, we can laminate the surface to provide a scratch-resistant finish and enhance the lifespan even longer.
Perhaps an underrated benefit is their thin construct. The incredibly durable aluminum is able to maintain its strength while keeping a slim, sleek profile. This allows your sign to be cut thinly, entirely custom cut, and even drilled with holes without losing shape or form.
If you need a sign for a parking lot or warning on a construction site, custom aluminum signs are the standard. Don’t forget to think outside the box though, that’s where the real benefit lies! Get creative with your custom design, as it’s certain to last a long time and you can easily catch the eyes of your customers for years.
Some of the most popular custom aluminum sign uses include:
- Real estate signs
- Permanent retail signs
- Directional signs
- Caution signs, warnings, notices, exhibits, kiosks, and more
- Parking lots: for employee spaces, tow away signs, etc.
- Decoration, custom message or personalized sign
- Storefront signage or business sign

Lifespan of Custom Aluminum Signs
Custom aluminum signs are made of a lightweight, yet extremely long-lasting material that can last for years.
While lifespan will vary depending on the location, these signs can last from 3 years to over a decade or longer.
Getting a laminate will increase the longevity of your sign and add a sleeker, fresh overall look.
Caring for Your Custom Aluminum Signs
Regularly cleaning your signs will help maximize its lifespan and effect.
Aluminum is shiny and eye-catching, but when dirt, dust, and debris build up on the surface it can dull the appearance. Using soapy water and a damp, gentle cloth you can remedy this problem. We advise cleaning your sign on a regular basis.
Do not use strong chemicals because it may affect the quality of the printed surface and appearance of the aluminum.
When choosing where you will showcase your aluminum sign, we advise choosing a place where it will be protected from heavy winds or from heavy objects blowing onto it. These circumstances could cause your sign to dent or warp.
