Corflute signs

Corflute is a fluted plastic (also known as corrugated plastic) which usually comes in two thicknesses – 3mm or 5mm.

The beauty of corflute signs is they’re cheap and light-weight. They’re also relatively strong in proportion to their weight.

Corflute is an ideal product for short term displays, point-of-sale, hanging signs or fence signs. Corflute is also used for football club signs, soccer club signs and other small, light-weight signs.

Corflute is not recommended for signs which will be in the sun a long time and it can warp a little if exposed to too much heat. However it can be rigged up with cable-ties through eyelets which will strengthen and flatten the sign.

Corflute signs are fantastic for exhibitions, home-opens, for sale signs, danger signs, warning signs, and general safety signs.

Metal signs

Metal signs are the most durable of all kinds of signs. There are lots of different types of metal signs, including the following:

  • Colorbond signs
  • Signwhite
  • Aluminium signs
  • Aluminium composite signs (these are different to aluminium signs)
  • Galvanised metal signs

By far the most common metal signs are those made from Colorbond or signwhite (a slightly thinner gauge of Colorbond). Signwhite signs have a white background to begin with and can be painted, have vinyl cut lettering on them, or have digital print on them. They can withstand extreme temperatures, so are perfect for very hot environments.

Aluminium composite signs are becoming more popular due to their strength and their light weight. Aluminium composite signs are made by sandwiching a thick piece of polypropelene plastic in between two sheets of aluminium. The standard sheet size is larger than signwhite meaning less joins, and it lays flatter than signwhite. However it does expand and contract in extreme temperatures and so is better suited to mild climates.

Aluminium signs are just a thickness of aluminium as a sheet. These are usually engraved or painted as vinyl doesn’t adhere to them as well, due to their oily nature (which is eliminated once it’s painted).

Galvanised metal signs are a sheet of zincalume which has been painted and lasts for a very long time, although it is quite an expensive process.

For most intents and purposes, signwhite or aluminium composite signs will do the trick.

Ducati 1198 vinyl wrap

Perth Graphics Centre was commissioned to change this red Ducati 1198 to a pink bike for the Miss Universe preliminary finals, and to achieve the best result, the bike was pulled apart.

It was then cleaned, and using a printed colour – no supplier had a pink wrapping film available – it was wrapped, piece by piece.
