Best Signs for Cold, Hot & Durability

BEST SIGN MAKING MATERIALS for DURABILITY and for HOT and COLD CLIMATES

DURABILITY

  • We ONLY use the BEST aluminum (Alcoa) and reflective sheetings (3M and Avery-Dennison) available, proudly Made in the USA.
  • We also ONLY use 3M’s transparent colored acrylic film, their best, MOST DURABLE and carries 3M’s BEST WARRANTY legend (text, symbols, borders etc.) making materials.
    • This material is the ONLY legend making material, in every color, guaranteed by 3M not to fade, making it the BEST for HOT, SUNNY CLIMATES
    • 3M transparent film is also the ONLY legend making material guaranteed by 3M to be immune to cold weather cracking (the vast majority of signs are made using silk screening products [the same process used to make the designs on tee-shirts] and are all susceptible to “post-silk screen cracking”; an occurrence common with silk-screened signs), making the 3M acrylic film we use also the BEST for COLD CLIMATES.
    • Although a small percentage of sign shops use this 3M material for some specialty signs, as far as we can tell, we are the only sign shop that uses this superior product for every sign we manufacture.

COLD and WET CLIMATES:Nobody “knows cold” like the dedicated employees performing or supporting research at the South Pole!

  • The coldest recorded temperature on earth, -135.8°F (-93.2°C), occurred on August 10, 2010 in Antarctica
  • We are pleased that the United States Antarctic Program (National Science Foundation) choose ARA Signs to make numerous signs for the various research and support facilities in Antarctica
  • Our sign making materials, including the use of 3M acrylic film which is immune to cold weather post-silk screen cracking, has held up extremely well in this extremely cold climate; the USAP has ordered numerous signs from us since their initial order.
  • Despite "all that snow and ice", contrary to popular belief, Antarctica is the dryest (in terms of annual parcipitation) continent on earth.  But "wet" is "no problem" for our sign making materials and methods; we have sold countless signs to customers in the Pacific Northwest and other locations that experience extreme amounts of rain and snow.

HOT, SUNNY CLIMATES: Nobody “knows hot” like the dedicated National Park Service employees and their families working and living in Death Valley National Park!

  • The hottest recorded temperature on earth, 134°F (93.256.7°C), occurred on July 10, 1913 at Furnace Creek, Death Valley NP.
  • We are pleased that the National Park Service choose ARA Signs to make numerous signs for Death Valley (and countless other units of the NPS)
  • Our sign making materials, including the use of 3M acrylic film which is the only material, in every color, guaranteed not to prematurely fade, has held up extremely well in this extremely hot and sunny climate; Death Valley NP has ordered numerous signs from us since their initial order many years ago
