Brushed Aluminum Signs
Brushed Aluminum Signs are a great way for ANY Business or Corporate Office to design timeless signage and upgrade with a fresh new clean look!
Custom Brushed Aluminum Signage
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 a lobby, reception area, waiting room, or bathroom. The brushed aluminum finish is the ultimate in office décor. The custom signs in full color can be mounted on any rigid surface, with decorative “standoffs” that remain firm and stable. Our line of brushed metal signs is modern and architectural.
Sizes and Thickness Printmoz offers in Brush Aluminum ACM
We offer 1/8" thick Brush Aluminum (ACM) Aluminum Composite Material. The sheets come in two different sizes, 48" x 96" and 48" x 120". If you plan for your printed Brush Aluminum Sign to be one 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.

What Are The Finish Options For Brushed Aluminum?
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
Spot white finish would be used if you do not want to see the brushed aluminum finish behind where you have defined ink in your file, anything left transparent would remain the brushed finish. A white layer of ink would be laid down before your colors are printed, thus far blocking out any brushed finish to show through the colors and ink in your file.
A transparent finish would be used if you were looking for the beautiful brushed aluminum finish look to show through the ink itself.
Brushed Aluminum Signs vs Regular Aluminum Signage
Brushed aluminum signs are not printed white like regular aluminum signs. The brushed version has an appealing metallic look that you would expect from aluminum. Rather than having a smooth metallic look, brushed signs look more aesthetically pleasing and leave the impression of quality and style. While standard aluminum is .030 mill, aluminum brushed metal signs are made at 3MM thick (.12 inches) for more robust and longer-lasting advertising.
The Benefits Of Brushed Aluminum
The benefits of brushed aluminum sheet alloy 5052 are notable and can be listed as follows:
1. The brilliant color - after a number of anodizing treatment, the brushed aluminum sheets become rich in colors which boosts the overall effect.
2. The scratch-resistant wear of brushed aluminum: after the surface treatment, the hardness of anodized brushed aluminum sheets easily matches that of sapphire This results in the positive feature of brushed aluminum sheets that their surface cannot be scratched easily.
3. No annoying fingerprints: our high-quality aluminum brushed sheet signs have anti-fingerprint properties, unlike glazing smooth-surface signs.
4. Forget about the corrosion ruining your promo signs. 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. What about dust? - Printmoz offers brushed aluminum signs which are anti-static. What the heck does this mean? Well, in short, our brushed aluminum signs do not absorb dust. This makes them easy to clean, and on top of that, 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 brushed aluminum sheet alloy 5052 that we're using for our 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 which are looking for an up-to-date and quality way of advertising.
Guidelines For Installing Brushed Aluminum Signs
When it comes to installing these custom 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. Obviously, this approach requires some tools and very careful positioning to ensure accuracy. Installation of aluminum signs is also possible without the “standoffs.” Finally, another method of installation is using double-sided tape.
Can Brushed Aluminum Sheets Be Used Outdoors?
Aluminum signs are typically rust-resistant and therefore a viable option for exterior signage. A brushed aluminum sign falls under the same description, but with the understanding that outdoor usage will incur wear and tear, particularly where a brushed aluminum sign is exposed to harsh weather. If you plan your brushed aluminum sign for outdoor usage, it's important to consider the screws, nuts, and bolts as with all-metal signs – they have to be rust-resistant, or they will eventually rust and affect the sign. As for cleaning and regular maintenance of a brushed aluminum sign, the same instructions apply as indoor use.
Are Brushed Aluminum Letters Also Available?
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. Here again, it's highly recommended that extra care is taken when measuring, positioning, and adhering to the letters. Clearly, someone who has previous experience and expertise should be installing.
Where To Use Brushed Aluminum Signage
Brushed aluminum signage(and brushed aluminum prints) are most often installed in a business environment. Typical uses of custom signs made of aluminum are for building directories, shopping mall signs, lobby reception areas, and individual commercial offices (including room numbers). The fact is, there is no limit with these versatile custom signs – they offer a combination of good looks, durability, and cost-effectiveness. These custom signs are a favorite of architects, designers, and building managers alike.
Brushed Aluminum Sign Cleaning Instructions
To begin with, a brushed metal sign should be installed where it cannot be scratched (either intentionally or accidentally).Cleaning brushed aluminum is as easy as wiping clean with a damp cloth (non-abrasive). If the storage of an aluminum sign is required, then it should be stored at room temperature, in a dry locale, and covered with something non-abrasive to protect the surface. When cleaning an aluminum sign, there’s no need to use detergent cleaners, and it’s best to avoid any harsh spray chemical cleaners.
