brushed aluminum signs.
With a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
Make a great first impression to your customers by using our custom brushed aluminum signs in your store or office. These signs are great for lobby and receptionist areas, waiting rooms, internal offices, hallways, bathrooms and more. Our brushed aluminum signs are made from 3mm e-panel aluminum that features a reinforced plastic core between two sheets of aluminum. The side we print on has a beautiful brushed finish. These signs offer the ultimate in durability and aesthetics. Printed directly onto the brushed aluminum these signs can be mounted to any rigid surface with standoffs and will last for years with proper care and placement.
Installation: The most common method of mounting our brushed aluminum signs is to a rigid surface using standoffs. After measuring and marking the location where the sign will be hung you can use the standoffs package (must be ordered as an option) to mount your sign. Note, for some rigid surfaces a pilot hole may be needed before continuing installation of your sign. Simply put your anchor inside of the standoff tube and then drill the screw and tube into the wall through the drilled holes on the sign itself. The final step is to screw on the caps of the standoffs by hand. To install your sign this way you’ll need a measuring tape, a level, and drill. We also recommend selecting the “Drilled Holes” option unless you plan to drill your own holes in the sign. Other methods of installation include double sided tape, or washers and screws.
The best way to take care of your sign is to post it in a place that will avoid scratches that are either intentional or accidental. Beyond this regular cleaning of the sign using a damp non-abrasive cloth will ensure that it remains vibrant for years to come. If storage is necessary store the signs at room temperature in a dry location. Signs should also be covered with a non-abrasive material to avoid being scratched while stored.

Installation and Care
Your sign can be hung or posted in several ways. First, it can be hung using a rope, chain, or otherwise in a number of settings. It can also be posted using bolts and screws to existing wooden poles. As noted above, if you will be posting a large sign we highly recommend a middle support post and anchoring to prevent wind and other damage to the sign.
The most common installation method is to use standoffs and mount the sign to a rigid surface. This method is what is most often seen in professional business settings due to it’s superior look. In order to mount your sign this way you will need to select the options of “Drilled Holes” as well as “Standoffs.” Unless you want to drill your own holes then you will only need the standoffs. This will ensure you have everything you need to mount your sign.
The first step will be to measure and mark the locations of where you will drill and hang your sign. Once you’ve done so and ensured it will be properly spaced and even you need to use the standoffs package to install your sign.
Your standoffs package will consist of four standoff tubes, four anchors, four screws and four standoff caps. Put an anchor into a standoff tube and insert it through the drilled hole of the sign. While having someone help you hold the sign up to your pre-determined location, use a drill to install the screw through the anchor and tube and into the wall. Repeat this for all four corners. Once it is affixed to the rigid surface screw on the standoff caps by hand and you’re done! You now have a gorgeous brushed aluminum sign with standoffs hanging on your wall! Please note that some rigid surfaces will require that you drill a pilot hole before screwing the screw into your surface.
