The material you select for your communication board depends on factors such as the intended use, location, and budget. Here are the three material options offered by Smarty Symbols along with their characteristics to help you make an informed decision:
- Plastic (6MM PVC/Sintra): Durable plastic signs printed with UV ink are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. These long-lasting signs can be placed on wood back posts or attached to fences with zip ties or other methods. If you are looking for a cost-effective option that can withstand various weather conditions, this might be a suitable choice.
- Wooden (High-Density Fiberboard): Weather-resistant wooden signs are printed using a four-color UV printing process on high-density fiberboard. They are eco-friendly and resistant to weather, fading, and abrasion. These signs are approximately 0.5″ thick. If you prefer a more natural look and want an environmentally friendly option, wooden signs might be the right choice.
- Aluminum (3mm): Aluminum signs are made of two 0.008″ aluminum sheets sandwiching a solid polyethylene core. They are printed with eco-friendly, weather, fade, and abrasion-resistant UV ink, and an optional extra UV protection glossy layer can be added. Aluminum signs are durable and offer a professional appearance, making them ideal for situations where aesthetics and longevity are important considerations. Aluminum board are not recommended for cities in very hot climate.
