When it comes to the success of your business, as well as its reputation, the way you appear to those who pass or enter your premises plays a large part. One factor that you should dedicate careful consideration to is the signage you choose to display, and the materials that you use. Different materials provide a range of characteristics and benefits, each dependant on factors such as their placement, size and shape.

What material options are there?

As experienced professionals, we can confirm there are three go-to options that you could consider for your signage, each providing a quality finish for any requirements. These highly respected and reliable materials are vinyl, metal and acrylic.

What should be considered?

There are a selection of factors that you should consider when it comes to choosing the material of your sign.

The placement of your sign is one of the main factors, and by this, we don’t just mean the wall on which it will be fixed. You should first make a decision on whether it will be placed internally or externally. When exposed to the weathering we experience here in the UK, from torrential rain and winds to a beating sun, there will be some material options better suited for externally displayed signage than others.

The duration of which your sign will be displayed is another factor which you’ll need to consider. You may find that, if you are displaying your sign for a short period of time, you could find a cost-effective material that is better suited to your requirements. Signs such as construction signage will most often be temporary, whereas retail signage is regularly installed with the intention of remaining in place for an extended period of time.

The purpose of your sign can point you in the correct direction when it comes to your final material. Whether your sign is intended to aid locals or customers with directions, or share the news of your latest promotions, there will be materials that provide stronger visibility or style than others. You may also be looking to incorporate additional features, such as LED lighting, in which you could find yourself being directed toward acrylic for the greatest effects.

No matter the material you choose, you should always take the necessary steps to provide the highest quality result. An expert in the industry will be able to use state-of-the-art equipment, combined with unrivalled knowledge to design, create and install at the highest level.
