Dibond is a composite material, with a solid plastic core and solid aluminum faces.
This material gives us the strength of MDO plywood, and durability of .080 aluminum at a much lighter weight.
Dibond is 3mm thick (1/8″) and is available in sheets up to 5′x10′.
Dibond is the material of choice for large industrial signs and high quality business ID signs.
MDO Plywood (medium density overlay) is an outdoor grade plywood. MDO is best suited for outdoor applications that require medium to long term durability (2-5 years).
MDO comes in 1/2″ thickness and is available in sizes up to 4′ x 10′. It features a wood fiber veneered surface that is sealed with a beautiful white enamel finish, leaving a very smooth and durable surface. We can paint it with One Shot enamels or outdoor durable latex paint to best match your project.
Popular uses for MDO are: Exterior business ID signs, site/project signs, real estate signage, and directional signs.
Sandblasted wood signs are made with western red cedar and are hand painted.
Single sided sandblasted wood signs are 1-3/4″ thick.
Typical uses for sandblasted wood signs are for housing, condo, apartment development entrance signs. They also work great as business ID signs.
Lighted sign faces, or box faces are made out of high impact lexan plastic.
We use translucent vinyl lettering, graphics and “sign white” Lexan for our box faces. This allows them to illuminate beautifully at night.
Lighted sign faces are typically found in retail locations as business ID signs.
