Sign Manufacturing


The sign manufacturing industry creates signage for visual graphics created to display information to a particular audience. This is typically manifested in the form of way finding information in places such as streets or inside/outside of buildings. Applications include mechanical applications, such as conveyor belt rollers or bushings, graphical applications such as promotional signage, and see-through applications such as displays.

Advantages of plastics

The advantages of plastics in Sign Manufacturing are numerous. Plastics are much lighter than metal, which equate into better fuel economy and cheaper to manufacture parts. Additionally, the lighter weight aids in safer material handling. Plastics can be designed to be impact and dent resistant, and modified for improved strength. Corrosion resistance, color and texture flexibility, the economical components and aesthetics are other advantages of plastics.

Materials Utilized Within Industry

The sign and graphics industry commonly uses roll stock and oversized sheets, including Acrylic, Polycarbonate, PVC foam, Engraving Stock, Dibond, Sign Vinyl -OVERSIZE SHEET and ROLL STOCK.
