Frequently asked questions…
What is Dibond?
Dibond is the brand name of brushed Aluminium composite board. Lightweight and rigid, the cut plastic material consists of a flexible polyethylene core covered with a thin aluminium sheet on each side, and is finished with a high quality lacquer that guarantees perfect printing.
What thickness of Dibond boards do you stock?
We print with a 3mm Dibond/AluPanel.
If you need a sign that will stand the test of time, then Dibond may be more suitable. For indoor signage with a smoother finish we would recommend using Foamex. Correx is a good choice for temporary signs or signage campaigns with a low budget. It is widely used for cost-effective but effective outdoor signs.
How do I display Dibond boards?
For Dibond, we recommend pre-drilling them and then hanging or screwing them.
How do I order a Dibond sign?
