A brushed aluminum sign makes a striking first impression in a store, office, or workplace. As interior signage, brushed aluminum signs add a touch of finesse to any space where they are displayed. Highly effective both indoors and out, brushed metal signs make an impression in your lobby, reception area, waiting room, bathroom, or outdoor spaces. The brushed aluminum finish is the ultimate elegance in office décor. The custom signs in full color can be mounted on any rigid surface, with decorative “standoffs” that make the sign appear to float. Our line of brushed metal signs adds a modern and architectural appeal to any space.
** Note - Printmoz's Brushed Aluminum Sign is made from 1/8" brushed ACM also known as Aluminium composite panels.
Despite the elegant and upscale appeal of our custom-printed brushed aluminum signs, they are cost-effective. The visual presence of these metal signs imparts importance to your message. Brushed metal signs are generally used for announcing the company name to visitors, and the material ensures your sign will look terrific for years to come.
Our free online design tool, designing your brushed aluminum signs is a snap! Just select the sign’s dimensions and custom options, then check out. Finally, upload your artwork and finalize the design. We’ll complete your brushed metal sign and ship it right out to you ASAP.
We offer custom brushed aluminum signs made from 1/8" thick brush aluminum composite material (ACM). The sheets come in two different sizes, 48" x 96" and 48" x 120". If you plan for your printed brush metal sign to be a single piece, you would have to order within those two sizes. If you order larger, that's ok. Our system will then split your full size into multiple panels automatically.
At this time we offer two finish options for custom-printed brushed aluminum signs. We offer a Spot white finish and a transparent finish.
Spot white finish would be used if you do not want to see the brushed aluminum finish behind the printed portions of your design. Anything left transparent in your design would display the brushed finish. We lay down a layer of white ink before printing your colors, thus blocking any brushed finish from showing through the colors defined in your file.
A brushed aluminum sign with a transparent finish allows the beautiful brushed aluminum finish look to show through the ink itself. Our transparent finish process does not support printing any part of your sign in white. If your design includes white elements, please select the Spot White finish.
Unlike regular aluminum signs, brushed aluminum signs are not printed with a colored background. The brushed metal has an appealing textured metallic look that shows through the printed portions of your design. Rather than having a smooth metallic look, brushed signs are polished with very fine scratches in a single direction. The effect is aesthetically pleasing and conveys the impression of quality and style. While standard aluminum is .030 mill, brushed aluminum metal signs are made at 3MM thick (.12 inches) for more robust and longer-lasting advertising.
The benefits of brushed aluminum sheet alloy 5052 are notable and include:
1. The brilliant color: after a number of anodizing treatments, the brushed aluminum sheets become rich in colors, boosting the overall effect of the sign.
2. The scratch-resistant wear of brushed metal: after the surface treatment, the hardness of anodized brushed aluminum sheets easily matches that of sapphire! The surface of brushed aluminum signs cannot be easily scratched.
3. No annoying fingerprints: our high-quality brushed aluminum signs have anti-fingerprint properties, unlike smooth-surface signs.
4. Exceptional corrosion resistance: With an oxide layer on the surface of our brushed aluminum sheets, we're making it next to impossible for the rust to spoil our lovingly made signs.
5. Nearly dust-free: Our brushed aluminum signs are anti-static. What the heck does this mean? Well, in short, our brushed metal signs do not attract dust but actively repel it. This makes them easy to clean, and our signs are environmentally friendly since they minimize the need to use liquid detergents or any other cleaning products.
In addition, the surface treatment of our brushed aluminum signs provides a robust metallic texture with a uniform look. This makes our brushed aluminum signs fashionable and modern in appearance for individuals or businesses looking for a stylish and quality way of advertising.
When it comes to installing these custom brushed metal signs, a conventional method is to use “standoffs.” After locating and measuring the sign position, standoffs are screwed into place between the installation surface and the sign. Finishing caps are used to cover the screw heads. This makes the brushed metal sign stand away from the wall it hangs on, seeming to float. This approach requires some tools and very careful positioning to ensure accuracy. Another method of installation is using double-sided tape.
Aluminum signs are typically rust-resistant and, therefore, a viable option for exterior signage. Brushed aluminum signs fall under the same description. However, outdoor usage will incur wear and tear, particularly where a brushed metal sign is exposed to harsh weather. If you plan your brushed aluminum sign for outdoor usage, it's important to choose rust-resistant screws, nuts, and bolts or they will eventually rust and affect the sign.
Yes! Brushed aluminum sign letters are available. However, certain specifications must be followed because of the thickness of certain letters. Since this type of sign requires individual letters to be custom cut, the finished letters have to be placed and adhered individually to a wall surface. Take extra care when measuring, positioning, and attaching the letters to the wall.
Where To Use Brushed Aluminum Signs
Brushed aluminum signs and prints are most often installed in a business environment. Typical uses of custom signs made of brushed metal are for building directories, shopping mall signs, lobby reception areas, and individual commercial offices (including room numbers). There is no limit with these versatile custom signs – they offer a combination of good looks, durability, and cost-effectiveness. These custom brushed aluminum signs are a favorite of architects, designers, and building managers alike.
A brushed metal sign should be installed where it cannot be scratched (either intentionally or accidentally). Cleaning brushed metal is as easy as wiping it clean with a soft, damp cloth. If you must store your aluminum sign, it should be stored at room temperature, in a dry locale, and covered with something non-abrasive to protect the surface. When cleaning a brushed aluminum sign, there’s no need to use detergent cleaners, and it’s best to avoid any harsh spray chemical cleaners.
