Quality Rigid Signs for Any Need

Brooklyn Signs can fabricate custom signs in any shape or size, using machinery that can create custom cuts and print/design options that are long lasting both indoors and outdoors. Some of the rigid signs that we create include:

  • Coroplast Signs – Coroplast is a popular, high quality brand for corrugated plastic. Corrugated plastic is made from three layers of polypropylene sheets for a lightweight, waterproof material that can be used for indoor and for short-term outdoor signage. Coroplast is available in many colors, thicknesses, and finishes.
  • Foam Board Signs – Also known as foam core, foam board consist of a thin layer of polystyrene form between two layers of paper. It can be easily cut to any size and graphic options are unlimited. Because they are rigid, they can be hung without frames. While the paper can be laminated to offer some moisture resistance, foam board signs are best used indoors.
  • Gator Board Signs – Similar to foam board in appearance and weight, gator board is more durable, resists moisture, and will not warp like foam core. Gator board is made from an extruded polystyrene foam covered with melamine and wood fiber veneer and is available in white, black, and natural finish.
  • PVC Signs – These signs enclose a foam core between two layers of PVC. The resulting material is durable, lightweight, and waterproof, so it works for indoor and outdoor use. PVC board is available in multiple thicknesses and can be printed double sided. They are finished with a low gloss matte to allow for easy cleaning and maintenance.
  • Dibond Signs – Dibond is the brand name of a durable, lightweight aluminum composite that resists bending and is waterproof and rustproof. Dibond signs are printed with UV protected inks, making them an ideal choice for outdoor signs that need to withstand weather.
These are just some of the many signs we can create and a few of our customization options. Because we are full service sign fabricators, even if you do not see a sign you need here, contact us to find a sign that matches your vision.

Frequently Asked Questions and Resources

What is Your Return Policy?

Your satisfaction is our goal. While we cannot offer returns on most custom products, we will accept any returns when it is our error, and we have created something outside of scope. Any time we have made an error, we will accept a return and discuss the idea of creating a new sign in its place. If you ever receive a broken sign, or you find that a sign isn’t working properly (such as a neon sign), please let us know right away.

What Signs Are Best For Indoors?

All signs last longer when they are inside of your property. Some signs, like neon signs and foam board signs, are almost exclusively meant for indoors. However, metal signs, vinyl signs, aluminum signs, wood signs, and nearly all the signs listed above for outdoor signs also work great as indoor signs depending on your needs.

What Signs Are Best For Outdoors?

There are many different signs that are durable enough for the outdoors. Some of the best materials include wooden signs, aluminum signs, plastic signs, and PVC signs. Banners and vinyl signs can also be great outdoors, but may not be meant to provide you with a permanent sign solution as the weather can cause staining and wrinkles. Many types of lighted signs, such as channel letters and light box signs, are meant for the outdoors.

What Are “Wraps” and How Do They Work?

Wraps are pieces of thin, self-adhesive vinyl. They fit on flat surfaces, such as metal and glass. They can come in black and white or full color, and they pop from whatever surface they are affixed to. We create primarily vehicle wraps and window wraps, branding your property, cars, and trucks and making sure that they provide you with a rolling advertisement that is designed to last.

How Can I Care For My Signs So They Last Longer?

Every sign has its own unique needs. Small metal signs need only be wiped down when it is dusty, and can withstand heavy cleaners. Banners can only be cleaned with gentle soap and water, and can only be rolled up – never folded – or they will have permanent creases and possibly damage the lettering. It is best to ask us after you order your sign, and we’ll gladly give you the information you need to continue to care for your sign.

What Are Sign Rentals?
