Custom Brushed Aluminum Signage
Custom signage is critical for any business, especially for companies with customer-facing operations. Perhaps because of this, there are many different materials that you can have a sign made of. For that reason, you need to think long and hard about the kinds of materials that will go into how you present your business. Foamcoreprint.com is here to help answer any questions you may have as you examine all our products and decide which is best for your business.
One of the most aesthetically appealing yet durable materials on the market is brushed aluminum. This material is made with a durable polyethylene core and two sheets of aluminum on either side. It then has a metallic brush finish applied that creates a beautiful and professional appearance. The polyethylene core adds much more durability than a few sheets of aluminum would otherwise provide by themselves without ruining the presentation. For this reason, brushed aluminum is one of the most popular types of material used today for business signage.
** NOTE All FoamCorePrints's Brushed aluminum is 1/8" ACM material; for more information about ACM material's specs, please read the FAQ at the bottom of this page.
The Benefits Of Brushed Aluminum Signs
Brushed aluminum signs are an elegant and appealing design choice. We supply them custom made in a number of different sizes and even have the shape custom cut to your specifications. Whatever the job, a brushed aluminum sign can be created that will satisfy your business needs. For instance, many of our customers use brushed aluminum signs for indoor and outdoor use in showing off their logo and name, parking lot and room markings, and many other things.
When you purchase a brushed aluminum sign from Foamcoreprint.com, you want to make sure that it stays in mint condition. You can clean it with any sort of damp non-abrasive cleaning cloth. This will remove any dirt and dust buildup and make sure that the sign stays looking shiny. The best way to avoid scratches and other forms of damage to your brushed aluminum sign is by hanging it in the proper location. When you go to hang the sign, make sure to place it somewhere high and out of the way. This will help to avoid any bumps and other accidental damage.
Getting Creative With A Brushed Aluminum Sign
Of course, not all uses of this kind of signage have to be for business. In fact, many homes have gotten a significant boost to their aesthetic and decorative appeal from a brushed aluminum print. This is similar to what you would get with a sign, except you are able to have whatever image you like custom printed on the face of it. This gives you an extremely durable and unique way of displaying these pictures.
You simply submit your photo to Foamcoreprint.com, and we will use our advanced digital UV printers to print your unique graphic onto the surface of the brushed aluminum. After it is treated, the entire product will shine beautifully. If you're looking for a refreshing and unique gift idea, this is it.
Brushed Aluminum Finishing Options
Spot White Finish - A spot white finish is a process where a layer of white ink is printed before the colors defined in the artwork; this process blocks out any and all brushed finish. Any areas in the file that are left transparent would allow the beautiful brushed finish to show through.
Transparent Finish - On a transparent finish, no initial white ink layer would be laid down, allowing the brushed finish to show throughout the colors printed on the signage.
Hanging Your Brushed Metal Sign
If you are seriously considering ordering a brushed metal sign, then you should have some idea of where you want to hang it. The first step in this process will, of course, be deciding what size of sign you would like. Imagine where it will go in your room or office and think of what would fit that space best. It may help to measure the wall space and see what looks proportionately sized.
You must also consider color contrasts and other design issues with your brushed metal sign. If you want help visualizing it, you can upload an image of your picture of doing a rough design of your sign and see a digital version of how it will appear in real life. This can help your visualization process and help with planning. It helps to think of the room as a whole and then consider how each individual, discrete part fits into that.
Of course, you still aren't done once you have the colors and sizing picked out. You also need to consider how you will actually hang your brushed metal signs. Most of our customers use standoffs, small cylindrical pegs that you can mount a screw through, and then hang the sign on. These are designed to be attractive to the eye and to provide a solid foundation for the sign. Of course, you could opt for a more traditional way to hang the sign as well.
However you go about hanging brushed metal signs, they are sure to be a great addition that completes your home or office. These signs are perfect for commercial or personal use and will stand the test of time either indoors or out. Foamcoreprint.com is your partner for all your printing needs!
