The Three Best Materials for Metal Signages

March 25, 2020

Many businesses will choose to get metal signage to represent their brand or company. This is due to metal signages' durability, aesthetic quality, and relative ease to fabricate. After you’ve decided to get metal signage for your business, the first step in this is to find a reputable laser cutting service that will be able to help you bring your vision to life. At Baseline Custom Fabricating, we possess cutting-edge machinery and decades of technical knowhow, giving you the reassurance you need that your project is in good hands. 


One of the first things we will consult with on is what material to use for your metal signage.


Below is a quick overview of the three most popular materials used: 


Steel and Stainless Steel  

If you want an outdoor signage that will serve you for decades, opt for stainless steel. Stainless steel is a mixture of iron and carbon with chromium added to make it rust-resistant. Due to its strength and corrosion resistance properties, it is not surprising that most business owners prefer stainless steel if budget is not an issue. Chemicals, dents, and even the harshest climate cannot affect the aesthetic value of stainless steel signs.  


When it comes to customization, stainless steel can be cut, engraved, painted and finished according to your preference, thanks to the efficiency and accuracy of our laser cutting services.  



If you want a more affordable option, consider aluminum.  Aluminum signages are easy to customize with the help of reliable laser cutting services. Like stainless steel, it can be polished, brushed, painted, and mirror finished, allowing you to be more creative 


Aluminum is also durable, owing its corrosion resistance to the aluminum oxide that forms when it is exposed to water.  Considering these properties, aluminum signs are perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications.  



Copper is another durable and versatile material. When it comes to its aesthetic quality, copper’s natural pinkish orange colors gives it an aura of sophistication and uniqueness. Due to its luxurious aesthetic, copper signs are also used in office suites and hotel rooms where high-end services are offered.  


Whatever your signage needs, you can always rely on Baseline to provide you with high quality laser cutting services. Thanks to our arsenal of high-tech machinery, including the Fibermak Momentum Gen-2 3KW, we can offer top of the line services for your business. Check out our website to learn more about what we can do for you!
