When Is Metal Signage the Right Choice for My Business?

You have many options when it comes to choosing the material for your business signs. One of these options is metal. Metal signage can provide a sophisticated look to virtually any business and you can use metal for both indoor and outdoor signage solutions. But out of all the signage materials you have to choose from, when should you consider metal? Here’s when metal could be the right choice for your business signage!

When You Want to Make a Lasting Impression

Metal signs have the advantage of standing out more so than other sign materials, depending on your specific design. Thanks to laser cutting and punch-out metal techniques for custom-designed signs, metal can deliver a smooth, modern look for your signage that distinguishes you from other businesses. As a result of helping you stand out, metal signs, especially lettering, can be a smart choice for businesses that receive mostly walk-in customers, such as retail shops and restaurants. Metal is an excellent choice for outdoor signage, but it can also make a great impression for your indoor signage.

When You Need Outdoor Signage

Not only can outdoor metal signage attract the attention of your customers, but it can also hold up well to the elements. Aluminum is an affordable and popular metal signage option that resists rust and can be particularly suitable for outdoor applications. Metal signage only needs occasional maintenance—perhaps every few years or so, depending on your location as well as the quality of your sign—which can help offset the cost of the sign. Metal doesn’t just work well for outdoor signs, but this material can translate well to your indoor spaces, creating a cohesive appearance for your business.

When Texture and Durability Matter

Many types of metal give you the advantage of choosing the texture of your sign. Copper gives you the option of a polished or brushed texture. Bronze and brass are other materials that can be polished or brushed to give your signage a traditional or contemporary look. Stainless steel is a high-quality signage material that can be another excellent choice for outdoor applications. Aluminum is one of the most versatile metals to work with for signage, allowing you to have more options when customizing your sign. Metal signs offer different texture options and durability that other signage materials can’t.
