Aluminum Pan Signs

October 12, 2017 9:26 am

An aluminum pan sign, also referred to as a shoebox sign, is a sign fabricated out of flat aluminum with 90-degree returns on all four sides, typically 1”- 2” deep.  It can be adapted to any wall surface with no visible fasteners.  Because of its rigid construction and painted finish, these signs are very durable.  The aluminum is weather-resistant, so it can hold up in all types of weather.

Aluminum pan signs are very customizable. The box shaped style is the most common, however, a pan sign can also be made with rounded corners, in oval or circular shapes, or even in custom designs depending on your location and brand requirements. Decoration of the face of the sign can be achieved through applied vinyl or digitally printed graphics, which provide almost limitless design potential.
