Business signage can take many different forms, and it can be made from a wide variety of materials. One of the most popular and effective materials is now aluminium, and it is easy to see why when you look at the number of benefits that it can offer. These modern, durable and impressive signs make a big impression, ensuring your brand is not just seen, but seen in a positive light.

Here, Judson Signs take a detailed look at the benefits of aluminium signs and why they are now such a popular option for business signage.


As aluminium is a very lightweight metal, it means that any aluminium signage will be much lighter and easier to handle than many alternatives. It can therefore not only reduce the time and cost of installation, but it can also mean that the sign can be placed in areas that might not be able to support something heavier. This means your signage can be positioned in a way that benefits your business the most, rather than having to accommodate restrictions.


Business signage is a big investment, and so you are going to want it to last as long as possible. As aluminium is light, it is easy to think that it might not be particularly strong, but you would be wrong. Aluminium is known for being especially robust, and as it is also very resistant to corrosion, it means your sign will continue to keep looking good for many years to come, even in the face of some tough weather conditions.


The style and weight of aluminium means that it lends itself equally to outdoor and indoor use. It could take the form of individual letters, a sign board for displaying essential information or for being mounted on a shop front. It is an incredibly versatile material that gives businesses lots of options with which they can play.


Every business wants their signage to be unique, and so they need to work with a material that can give them exactly what they need. The lightweight nature allows you to play with assorted sizes, whilst you can also incorporate colour and text in many different ways. This ensures that your signage fits in with all of your business branding and is able to reflect who you are perfectly.


As aluminium signs are so long lasting, they can also be a more affordable option. This is because they will not need to be replaced as frequently as some other materials and also require far less maintenance to keep them in tip top condition.

Types of aluminium signs

Brushed aluminium tends to be one of the most popular options for aluminium signs because of its effortlessly modern style. By adding this level of texture, your sign takes on a new depth and it can be very impressive. It is also much easier to clean than a shiny surface and it can be backlit to make it even more eye catching.

Composite signs are also popular as it can consist of multiple layers of aluminium with a solid core to add rigidity and resilience. Cut out aluminium signs can look extremely effective as they allow for all sorts of designs and shapes that can really help to emphasise your brand logo or name.

Aluminium signs are a big trend for many businesses at the moment because of the many benefits that they can bring. They provide the perfect combination of style and practicality that means more and more brands are turning their backs on more traditional materials in favour of this stylish and versatile metal instead.
