Powder Coated Aluminum (.040"):
Powder coating is widely considered to be the ideal method of decorating and protecting aluminum components, products and parts. By electrostatically spraying and fusing this mixture of pigments and resins onto a surface, you can achieve a high-quality, extremely durable finish that will extend the life of your metal and ensure its continued aesthetic appeal.
With powder coating, there are zero or near-zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can be harmful to humans and the environment alike. The reduced hazardous waste created by powder coating compared to liquid paints also make clean-up easier and allows the coated material to be easily recycled later on.
As far as appearance goes, powder coated aluminum is much more consistent and even than conventional painting methods. Plus, because powder coating can produce a much thicker coat with fewer visible differences (like running or sagging paint), it can be significantly more durable than traditional liquid paint. The flexibility in choices of powdered resins and pigments allow for virtually every color combination - even glosses, metallic finishes, and a variety of different textures.
The vinyl that is used is for general signage and other medium-term flat indoor and outdoor applications with a thickness of 2.75 mil. Once the vinyl is peeled from the backing, it is adhere to the aluminum with a grey, solvent-based, permanent adhesive.
Aluminum Stakes (24" in Length):
These aluminum stakes are offered as a pre-mounted option for our 6" x 6" and Badge Shape Signs. They are made of rugged .065 gauge aluminum to stand up against wind, rain, string trimmers and occasional bumps by the lawn mower. They area mounted to our signs with (2) stainless steel rivets. They're beveled at one end to go in the ground more easily. These U-Channel stakes include a protective cap.
We are pleased with the quality and durability of our products that we offer. If properly cared for, our aluminum sign or vinyl decal/sticker will last for years to come. To ensure that it does, we are excited to offer a little help in installing your new sign.
Aluminum Yard Signs:
All of our aluminum signs includes pre-drilled with 3/16" diameter holes that assist in mounting to a fence, side of a wall or mailbox. The pre-drilled holes are placed in the center of the signs, so they can be mounted to a stake/post. The 12" x 3" signs includes pre-drilled holes in the four corners of the sign. Please use stainless steel fasteners (if available) for mounting your new sign.
Our aluminum signs are cornered with a 3/8" corner radius in all four corners. This eliminates pointy corners.
Stakes and posts are available at most hardware stores, such as: Home Depot and Lowes.
Our 6" x 6" and Badge Shape aluminum signs are offered with a pre-mounted option to a 2' aluminum stake that can simply pushed into a soft surface.
1. First you want to make sure that the surface is clean.
2. In a spray bottle, mix a water solution with water and a few drops of dish soap. Shake well.
3. Peel vinyl from paper backing through picking one of the corners. Once the vinyl is peeled from the paper backing, spray water solution to the back of the vinyl.
4. Spray water solution to cleaned surface. (This will keep it from adhering immediately and give you time to reposition ifnecessary.)
5. Apply the vinyl sticker to the surface. Then take a hard item like a squeegee or a plastic card and rub it gently over the surface of the decal towards the edge. This allows the excess water solution to be removed.
6. Rub it a few times making sure there are no bubbles.
7. Once completed, wipe with a dry towel.
German Shepherd Dogs can stand as high as 26 inches at the shoulder and, when viewed in outline, presents a picture of smooth, graceful curves rather than angles. The natural gait is a free-and-easy trot, but they can turn it up a notch or two and reach great speeds. There are many reasons why German Shepherds stand in the front rank of canine royalty, but experts say their defining attribute is character: loyalty, courage, confidence, the ability to learn commands for many tasks, and the willingness to put their life on the line in defense of loved ones. German Shepherds will be gentle family pets and steadfast guardians, but, the breed standard says, thereâ€™s a â€œcertain aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and indiscriminate friendships.â€ Our German Shepherd signs are a fantastic way to show case your German Shepherd.
