Outdoor Sign Design: 6 Reasons To Use Aluminum Composite As A Substrate

Outdoor Sign Design: 6 Reasons to Use Aluminum Composite as a Substrate

One of the most important aspects of any outdoor sign design is your choice of substrate. After all, outdoor signs have to contend with Mother Nature, and they tend to be more exposed to wear-and-tear, too. Your choice of outdoor sign substrate will also dictate what installation options are available to you.

Unfortunately, because every business is different, there is no universal “best” outdoor sign substrate—but there is a “best-for-you,” and our team can help you find it!

To help you make the best decision for your outdoor sign system, today’s post reviews 6 benefits of choosing aluminum composite for your outdoor sign design. Read on to learn more, or call (661)-379-6545 to speak directly with an outdoor sign expert near you.

What Substrate Is Best For Outdoor Signs? 6 Advantages Of Aluminum Composite

  1. Aluminum composite outdoor signs are budget-friendly. Compared to other metallic sign options, aluminum composite outdoor signs are much more affordable, and their value is greatly increased by their impressive 5+ service life, low maintenance requirements, and DIY-friendly installation options.

  2. Aluminum composite outdoor signs are impressive. When researchers at the Lindner College of Business surveyed 100,000 US consumers about their shopping habits, more than 41,500 people said they had recently visited unfamiliar stores after being impressed by the brand’s outdoor signs. And though the study omitted any mention of the specific sign materials, there’s a good chance that a large percentage of those impressive outdoor signs were fabricated using aluminum composite.

    Why? Because, statistically speaking, it is one of the most popular outdoor sign materials for businesses in Bakersfield, CA, currently serving in a variety of applications throughout Kern county, and it is also a truly impressive material, available in a variety of classy finishes, including brushed aluminum and gold. And with the help of our team, you can take any aluminum composite outdoor sign design to the next level with eye-catching graphics, printed in evocative color and high-resolution.

  3. Aluminum composite outdoor signs are built to last. Aluminum composite outdoor signs can hold up to the worst of Kern county weather, and they are also very resistant to wear-and-tear, corrosion, rust, and fading from UV rays. With some light maintenance, you can expect your aluminum composite outdoor signs to last for 5+ years in almost any conditions.

  4. Aluminum composite outdoor signs are lightweight. Although they come with two thin aluminum panels, the bulk of aluminum composite outdoor signs are made from lightweight polyurethane. This makes them easy to install and transport, and it also saves out-of-town businesses money on shipping.

  5. Aluminum composite outdoor signs are endlessly customizable. TM Signs & Graphics offers Bakersfield’s largest selection of aluminum composite outdoor sign products and finishes, and every product is 100% customizable. Order your substrate in any size, color, or shape, then work with our talented in-house design team to create vinyl graphics, logos, and text that matches your vision, whether you’re starting from scratch or you have artwork to submit.

  6. Aluminum composite outdoor signs accommodate most installations. Due to their durable construction and lightweight characteristics, aluminum composite outdoor signs can be hung, stood upright on tables or window sills, incorporated into freestanding displays, pole-mounted, and installed in just about any other way you can imagine.

I had a great experience with the service I received from Michael, Trinh and TM signs and graphics. Their service was fast, high quality, and the price was affordable. I had informed TM signs and graphics that I needed the project done within a few days, so I was very impressed when it took them less than a weekend to get it done, and I was even more impressed when we spoke about the cost of the project (hint. hint. It was less than other quotes). I 100% recommend giving TM signs a try. I'm very pleased with the services they offer, and I will continue to use them in the future.

Hats off to Trinh and her team. We needed new signage on quite a few of our office doors. Other companies we checked in with were not able to come out until the following week of our request, Trinh showed up within an hour to measure for what we needed. The work was performed within a few days perfectly! We would highly recommend giving this company an opportunity to earn your business. They did ours this time and future times to come.

When the best man at my wedding was unable to make it last minute, Bakersfield Signs and Graphics came to the rescue. They custom made a cardboard cutout of the best man. It was a huge hit at my wedding and everyone loved it! They made it so fast and it looked exactly like the other groomsmen. I couldn't believe how well it turned out. Thank you so much for bringing some much needed laughs and fun during times like these.

BSG did a fantastic job re-designing the Yard Sign logo for ICO Gardening. The original picture was old and couldn't be used due to low resolution. They had to create a new one to the exact picture. They were quick and efficient in competing my order.
