What is AluPanel?
AluPanel is the brand name for a type of composite aluminium panel. It is made from two sheets of aluminium which are sandwiched over a polyethylene core. The benefit of this is that the signs are lighter and more economical to produce. Our AluPanel signs are 3mm thick with two aluminium sheets of 0.30mm each.
Why use aluminium signs?
Aluminium board printing is one of the best choices when you want a professional-looking sign with a sleek, modern look. Even though aluminium signs are primarily used for outdoor signs, they can also be used for impressive indoor signs as well – such as a chic way to showcase the menu in your café or even a sophisticated sign for your bathroom doors. If you want a cheaper option for a temporary sign, then Foamex or Correx Board signs might be better options
How do I display an aluminium sign?
Aluminium signs are typically displayed by pre-drilling them and then hanging or screwing them. However, you can also frame the aluminium sign for an impressive display.
