Metal Signs

Metal is a great sign material for a wide range of purposes. It’s strong, shiny, and can be treated for use as an outdoor sign material. No matter what kind of sign you’re interested in, using metal will make it seem more professional, high-end, and sturdy, all great qualities to associate with your brand. If you’re based in Naperville or Chicago, custom cut metal signs don’t have to be expensive either. Depending on the metal and your sign type, we can provide you with a very affordable sign that still looks great. Here’s what you need to know about these signs.

What Metals Can You Choose for a Custom Metal Sign?

There are many metals, colors and finishes available for your business metal sign. Here are a few of your options:

Aluminum Signs

Custom aluminum metal signs are among the most popular option because they balance beauty with durability and low cost. Aluminum is a relatively inexpensive metal, that is great for outdoor signs because it can’t rust.

Once you know more about aluminum, you will understand why it’s one of the most popular metal materials for signs. It is lightweight and durable, making it excellent for indoor and outdoor use. Custom aluminum signs are resistant to rust and corrosion, ensuring they are long-lasting and offer a high ROI.

Stainless Steel Signs

Stronger and more expensive than aluminum, steel is a great option when you want your sign to look like a cut above the rest. It’s ideal for signs that are focal points, or closely connected to your brand.

As one of the most durable metal materials, stainless steel signs are the right choice if you’re looking to install a long-lasting outdoor sign. They are also environmentally friendly and easy to install.


A high end material with great looks, copper is wonderful for indoor signs. If you need an outdoor sign, consider bronze.

Bronze Signs

This material conveys tradition, authority, and wealth. While not as strong as steel, it is an excellent option for businesses that have long histories and want to appear stable and reliable with a custom vintage metal sign. This material is known for its timeless beauty and elegant appearance. While it’s also functional by being weather resistant and durable, its visual appeal is its shining quality.

Personalized Metal Signs

Looking for freedom in the design and production of your metal sign? We offer personalized sign solutions that allow you to choose the color, finish, material, size, shape, and more to perfectly represent your business. This option is perfect if you’re interested in incorporating brand elements into your signage too.

Metal Letters

Consider investing in individual letters to spell out your business’s name or logo instead of buying a traditional sign. These custom-made letters offer room for additional creativity that other signs do not.


With a similar finish to bronze, but more affordable and less strong. This is a good option for brands that want the unique feel of bronze for their decorative metal sign without the price tag.
