The material is a high-density fiberboard (HDF) that has a white face from bonded polymer on both sides. It is moisture resistant and suitable for indoor and outdoor use. This wood is both extremely versatile from a printing perspective as well as in its ability to be cut to shape and used in a variety of settings and circumstances.
Yes, fiberboard is different from MDO board as it tends to have a smoother and flatter finish and thus lends itself to a more consistent and high-quality print job than when printing directly on MDO.
We can cut your wooden sign to almost any shape that you may request. To have your sign cut to your desired shape or design please select the “Contour Cut” option during the design and ordering process.
If for some reason the cut you are requesting is not possible or simply won’t look like you may want it to, we will contact you before processing and cutting your wooden sign.
Our wooden signs are extremely durable. Part of their durability comes from the thickness of the sign itself. Nonetheless, smaller signs are not overly heavy. Larger signs can become heavy depending on just how big they are. For very large signs please ensure they are posted or hung accordingly and as outlined below. As a reference, a 12”x12” sign weighs approximately 2.23 pounds.
The most common use of wooden signs is for exterior uses typically for branding purposes or for commercial real estate. Wooden signs have proven to be effective and durable solutions for roadside businesses, farms, construction sites, entrances to neighborhoods and apartment complexes and more. Beyond business use, they are often seen in parks and trails, campground sites, golf courses and many more locations. They can also be used as point of purchase signage.
These custom wooden signs often give the right mix of durability and professionalism to be placed outside and deliver a great first impression for visitors and potential customers.
Installation & Care
In most cases, wooden signs are affixed to sturdy poles for display. While drilled holes is an option when ordering your sign we do not provide any of the hardware for posting your sign, including the screws.
For small to medium sized signs (less than 36”) typically poles on either end of the sign should be sufficient. For signs that are larger than 36”, depending on the location, we recommend using a middle support pole when posting your sign. This will help prevent damage from high winds and other unforeseen circumstances.
In addition to using your signs with posts they can be displayed in several ways. One common use for smaller signs is to use the drilled holes and chains to hang the wooden sign from hooks. Again, larger signs would need additional drilled holes and hooks for extra support.
The signs can also be affixed to any rigid surface such as a wooden, drywall or concrete walls. Depending on what type of surface it is will dictate how you install your sign. Typically though drilling pilot holes, using anchors for the wall, and a combination of a screw and washer should do the trick to firmly attach the sign to the surface.
Installation will vary from place to place but should take into consideration foot traffic and exterior elements alike. Rubbing against the sign or inadvertently bumping into it can damage the sign and/or your wall while exterior elements can shorten the lifespan. Thus, some forethought as to the placement of the sign can prevent future damage or incidents in many cases.
