Frequently Asked Questions About Custom Aluminum Signs
"What are the most popular sizes for custom aluminum signs?"
Custom Aluminum Metal Sign

Since real estate agents and contractors buy so many aluminum yard signs, one of the most common sizes is 18" height x 24" width. We stock real estate sign frames which accommodate a 24" height x 18" width aluminum sign panel as well.

But always keep in mind that aluminum sheeting can be easily cut to any "odd" size that meets your individual needs. Odd size pricing simply uses the next standard size up. (Standard aluminum sign sizes are found in our Instant Pricing Calculator.)

Other popular sizes include:
• 2' height x 3' width
• 3' height x 2' width, and
• 2' height x 4' width.

The sizes above fit into a sturdy angle iron step stake for a convenient and portable display. But you should strongly consider upgrading the thickness of your custom aluminum signs for these larger size signs if you are in an area with seasonally high winds.

The thicker the aluminum, the less likely aluminum signs will buckle or be ripped from the bolts which attach the sign panel to its sign frame. Increasing the thickness of your custom aluminum sign from a standard .040" to a medium duty .063" or extra heavy duty .080" gauge aluminum will enhance the durability of your aluminum signs. Generally, the larger the aluminum sign you want, the thicker the metal material needs to be.

Tips for using aluminum signage

"Which aluminum sign material thickness is best for custom building signage?"

One of the most common thicknesses for sign applications is .040" gauge aluminum. This thickness is ideal for standard, 18" x 24" real estate yard signs and is also the recommended thickness for 2' x 3' metal step-stake frames.

When attaching aluminum signs to buildings, use 040" gauge aluminum for signs in size up to 2' x 4'. Technically, you can use .040" gauge aluminum for sizes all the way up to 4' x 10' provided you mount the metal flat against a wall. The larger the panel size is, the greater the tendency to bend which can cause a large thin gauge aluminum sign to have a slightly wavy or rippled appearance when installed on a building, especially a corrugated metal building.

Therefore, when you want a bigger sign, we recommend increasingly thicker gauges of aluminum with the optimum heavy duty thickness being .080" gauge aluminum. Other thicknesses available include 063" medium duty thickness and .050" lighter duty material. On smaller size signs (up to 2' x 4') even a modest increase to .050" gauge aluminum substantially increases the stiffness and rigidity of the sign panel.

"What is the recommended thickness for hanging aluminum signs?"

Aluminum .063" thick signs are best for hanging from a post such as 2' x 2' and 2' x 3' and .080" gauge aluminum works best for heavy duty applications such as 3'x 4' hanging signs, 3' x 3' Signs on a post or in a frame and larger signs.

In general, as you go larger in size, we recommend that you increase the thickness of the aluminum sign panel you purchase. When in doubt, better to go too thick than too thin because the heaviest .080" gauge aluminum we stock is still less than 1/8" thick.

"What are some common uses for aluminum signs?"

Aluminum signs can be used in many places indoors or out. Most frequently they are hung on wall, both interior or exterior. This makes the flexibility of the sign a non-issue.

The following types of signs are commonly made from the aluminum sign panel:

  • Real Estate Signs
  • Contractor Signs
  • Commercial Signage
  • Marine Signs
  • New Business Signs
  • Directional Signs
  • Informational Signage
  • POP Displays
  • Industrial Signs
  • Safety Signs
  • Corporate Signage
  • Construction Signs
  • Parking Lot Signs
  • Trailers
  • Exterior Wall Signs
  • Street Signs
  • Gate Signs
  • Signs on Fences
"What is the life span for custom aluminum metal signs?"

The Aluminum material itself will outlast the artwork on your sign. Our uncoated Economy Grade Signs are rated for at least 3 years outdoors while our Premium Grade Signs coated with an optically clear, UV Protective Lamination are rated for a minimum of 5-8 Years outdoors. Aluminum signs can last for decades indoors.
