HDU signs are made with High-Density Urethane

More Cost-Effective than Wood

High-density urethane or HDU is a rigid, durable foam material that is much stronger than most foam types. HDU signs can be made to look like wood signs, but are a more cost-effective option. Because HDU is easier to shape than wood, the material itself is cheaper and manufacturing costs are lower. Plus, HDU is a petroleum-based material, which makes it naturally waterproof. High-density urethane signs last much longer than wood and don't need to be replaced as often. They do not warp, crack, or bow like a solid wood sign when exposed to the elements.

Lighter than Wood

Because it's lighter than wood, installation is simple and shipping, in most cases, is lower. Since we live in a world that is going "greener" with each day, some people simply choose high-density urethane signs over wood signs to save trees. HDU signs are available in a variety of thicknesses, starting from one and a half inches to whatever thickness your project requires. They can be single or double-sided. The construction makes the signs lightweight but rigid while creating a strong durable panel strength. Once your design is sandblasted into the HDU material, it's instantly transformed into a professional heavy-duty, stylish, and dimensional HDU sign.

Unlimited Color Options

In sandblasted signs, you also have a variety of colors available to choose from. Full-color HDU signs are now just as easy to make as one-color signs with minimal difference in price. No matter how many colors you want, you can get extra colors and a distinct visual advantage on your sign. The versatility and durability of HDU signs make them a great business marketing tool.
