What is Dibond?
The Dibond Printing and Cutting Process
Don’t be afraid of getting creative with the shapes of your Dibond printing projects – go a little crazy if you want! The strength and versatility of Dibond allows it to be cut to just about any shape you desire. You can custom cut the sign to the outline of your creative logo, or create three dimensional looks by positioning multiple Dibond signs in front of each other for a layered effect. Dibond looks great as hanging signage, and we can print on both sides! This means that you can hang it outside of your store front, and foot and vehicle traffic from both sides will easily be able to see it.
Aluminum Sign Printing Weight and Sizing
The Dibond sheets we have available range from as small as six square inches to as large as ten square feet. We find that most Dibond sign printing projects can be accomplished with this range of sizes. However, should you require more, we can create multiple panels from different sheets of Dibond and join them upon installation.
Dibond aluminum is a bit heavier than Sintra Board, and is certainly heavier than Gator Board. However, the composite materials of the aluminum are not so heavyweight that you need to be concerned about transporting or displaying a Dibond printing. Dibond is light enough to be mounted on drywall with causing any damage to the structure. Properly secured, Dibond aluminum signs can also be hung from most ceilings without the risk of collapsing them. One of the benefits of the heftier weight of Dibond is that it is less flimsy when subjected to heavy winds (or air conditioning vents). Dibond will hang in its place more securely than, for example, Gator Board, which is likely to flop around in the breeze.

Dibond Sign Printing and Finishing Options
Additionally, you can print double-sided onto Dibond aluminum boards instead of just a single side. We include a small markup at 70% of the base cost to print on both sides of the board, but you can save money by printing on both sides instead of purchasing two separate signs if you’ll be using them in such a way that they can be flipped around. A great example of this would be for hanging signage that faces both directions of traffic flow on the sidewalk.

Life Span of and Caring for Custom Aluminum Signs
Dibond requires no maintenance in order to extend its longevity, but regular cleaning will help keep your sign looking its best. If kept inside, simply dusting your Dibond signs on a regular basis will suffice. In the event that your aluminum sign gets dirty, you can wash it with non-abrasive chemicals as needed. If kept outdoors, cleaning it once a month with a towel soaked warm, soapy water will help to remove dirt and build up.
