Sign Materials

We offer several different types of materials for our standard semi-custom signs in our product library: metal coated HDU board and cast metal.
Etched metal signs
are available as a custom quote only.

METAL COATED HDU SIGNS

HDU Colors

Lightweight and economical. Coated with real metal and made out of a type of “plastic" (30 pound HDU) that doesn’t warp, rot and is unaffected by weather, so outside is just fine. The metal coating is REAL metal (NOT paint) and chemically bonded to the “ plastic" and won’t flake or peel. Use for interior or exterior.

CAST METAL SIGNS

Cast Material

Heavy and 2x the price of HDU. Created from a solid sheet of metal and routed or casted. This option won't warp, rot and is unaffected by weather, so outside is just fine. Use for interior or exterior.
