Substrate roundup: Balancing cost and performance
Knowing your options helps you get the most value from the materials
Posted on Friday, August 31st, 2018
When it comes to substrates for signs, you have plenty of possibilities. A quick count on the website of a major sign supplier yields over 90 different signage substrate materials, and that’s not counting the thickness and color options.
Most of the substrates that sign makers use every day are not materials that are used every day in most other industries, such as construction. Many are specialized materials that found a home in the sign industry because of the unique characteristics they offer. You won’t find most of them at a big box home improvement store.
