Sometimes we are asked why American Sign Letters carries so many aluminum signs. The answer is simple: Aluminum is one of the most popular and in-demand materials in the industry. But that’s not the full answer. See, aluminum has exploded in popularity because it stacks up well against the other common materials used in creating signage. Even in comparison to wood, plastic, and other composite materials, aluminum remains the king of the competition because of its many benefits to the user. If you’re debating whether or not to use aluminum signs in your workplace, read on and find out why this is one of the best materials you can invest in.

Aluminum Means Strength

Our owner has an uncompromising policy when it comes to selling signs: Nothing leaves the shop unless it meets his exacting quality standards. With our aluminum signs, this is never an issue. That’s because it imparts the incredible combination of lightweight durability with immense strength. An aluminum sign of any reasonable thickness is going to last far longer than most of its counterparts. It is highly resistant to the elements, difficult to bow or warp, and will not shatter if some kid throws a rock at it. If you want a sign material that’s going to last, aluminum is one of your best bets.

Affordability is Key

Whether you’re a business owner or in charge of a public park, you don’t want to blow your entire budget on informational signs. Even if you’re looking for signs to advertise your business, you can’t afford to eat up all of your potential profits by using materials as precious as literal gold. Aluminum is not only one of the best-quality material you can use for a sign, it is also surprisingly affordable. When you compare it to fine woods or even certain plastics, aluminum signs are a budget-minder’s dream. This becomes even more obvious over time, when the affordability of aluminum signs weighs out against the replacement and repair of inferior materials.

A Professional Look

If you hear the word “aluminum” and automatically think of the stop sign at the corner, think again. In fact, go ahead and browse our immense collection of signs – many of which are made from aluminum and very few of which look anything like your average street sign. Indeed, we carry professional-looking aluminum signs that would be appropriate in even the highest-class highrise office building. Our customers include doctors’ offices, lawyers, colleges, and even courtrooms. If you think that aluminum can’t impart a professional look, one glance at our site will prove you wrong.

An Excellent Outdoor Solution

When you start looking into signs, you’ll soon find that certain materials are not recommended for outdoor mounting. Acrylic and PVC are usually discouraged for outdoor placement, for instance. While there are many types of wood that do fine in an outdoor setting, some varieties will rot and decay when exposed to the elements for too long. This is not true when it comes to aluminum signs. They are rustproof, waterproof, and extremely resistant to all temperatures and climates. If you want signage that lasts, aluminum signs are your ticket!
