When choosing signage for business, durability, versatility, and visual appeal are the three characteristics that distinguish an investment. A product that fits all these requirements will bring the most return long-term. This is why Aluminum is the most popular material for signs in any environment. 

These signs are water repellant, can be used inside or out, and offer a sleek look that fits any decor.


While Aluminum comes with many benefits, there are three that stand out from the rest. 


Aluminum is a lightweight metal, making it easy to transport and install. It can be mounted to any hard surface or hung from the ceiling with a limited risk of falling. 


Due to its durability and modern appearance, Aluminum can be used for almost any signage. This includes wayfinding/directional, retail, safety/warning, real estate, traffic/parking, restaurant, home, and more. 


Aluminum signs come in various thicknesses depending on your needs, making the final product stronger than other materials. The typical character comprises two sheets with a solid polyethylene core, available with pre-drilled holes for easy installation. 

When you order from Design 4, we can laminate your sign to prevent scratching as well. An overlay of plastic or other protective material will be placed on the surface, and you can choose from a gloss or matte finish.  

Inside vs. Outside
