What are Dibond Signs?  Dibond is an aluminium composite sheet which can replace the need for heavier metals.  Signs printed on Dibond comprise two thin aluminium sheets sandwiched around a different core material.

It is strong and durable yet lightweight and is less likely to rust than other metals.

Dibond Sign Printing

As a permanent feature, Dibond signs are our favourite material to make a statement.  

The Dibond aluminium finish gives a really smart and expensive look to a sign but they are remarkably inexpensive to produce.

Dibond signs are great for small businesses that want to have a really professional look.  We love them not only as business signs but as menus and price lists that can be displayed prominently in a shop or salon.

The durability of a dibond sign is of paramount importance if you need a sign that can stand up to UK weather.  When properly affixed via the pre-drilled holes, these should withstand the elements of a drizzly Monday or a windy Wednesday plus, the aluminium won't rust or fade.

To make your boards last even longer and prevent scuffs and scratches, add a gloss or matt lamination to the front. 

UK shipping is free, exceptions apply.

We would also not advise using an overly complex cut line. (Shapes that are too complex may be rejected at prepress stage). We recommend that cutting lines have curves rather go into a point.
