Types of Custom Signs

There are several types of custom signs, and they all use a wide variety of materials including aluminum, plastic, foam, and PVC signage. Sign lettering can be as straightforward as adhesive vinyl or as eye-grabbing as neon.

Other materials commonly used for lettering include metal, wood, plastic, and foam core. Lettering can also be engraved. While once quite prevalent, paint is now much less common as a lettering medium.

In regards to custom lettering and custom graphics, the backing materials used may include any of the following: plastic, paper, cloth, vinyl, wood, foam core, glass, and aluminum. Mixed substrates are also available.

LED signs are regularly combined with aluminum signs, which results in the creation of eye-catching boards. Most businesses are quite a fan of custom signs as these are priced reasonably low and therefore easily affordable. Businesses like theatres, pubs, restaurants, hotels, and motels are some of the biggest advocates of LED signs.

For custom signs of all sorts, including lighted or neon signs, we encourage you to choose Prairie Signs. Have questions?
