ACM (Aluminium Composite Material) Panel Print

If you’re looking for some great, durable business signage in Sydney, Melbourne or across Australia for the front of your shop to help with telling people where your business is and what you do, then it is likely that you have been looking at some form of Aluminium Composite Panels or Metal Signs to do this!

ACM panels combine two 0.3mm aluminium surface layers with the middle consisting of polyethylene core. That makes the panels lightweight yet very resistant. Easy to transport, cost-effective with low thermal expansion compared to plastic materials.

Do you Assist with the Sign Installation?2022-01-27T19:40:32+00:00

Yes, we have our own team of sign installers as well as a strong network of qualified sign contractors to assist with the installation of our projects involving any quantity of ACM panels, from single panels to multiple ones forming a large sign. In many cases the use of high reach equipment is required when ladders are not applicable. We can advise on the best options for all types of signage as well as work with you regarding required permits. The requirements of business signage vary greatly depending on which council you are in (Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, etc.).

What are the Methods of Sign Installation?2022-01-27T19:38:23+00:00

Our signs are installed in many locations – indoors, outdoors, and everywhere in between. Outdoor installations most commonly involve specific glue for ACM or silicon as well as the use of screws to make sure the panels stay in place. For inside installations, double sided tape can be used depending on the size. You also have the option of pins – metal standoffs – which are stylish and easy to install.

Can you Cut to Shape ACM?2022-01-27T19:34:42+00:00

Yes we have flatbed CNC router technology which allows us to cut to most shapes ACM panels. Extensively used for 3d flat signage, but these can also be to cut panels in large scale precisely.

Can the Corners of the Panels be Round or Have Holes?2022-01-27T19:33:17+00:00

Yes, a lot of our business sign projects involve cutting round corners and holes accordingly on ACM panels. The pre-drilled holes make the installation process considerable faster. As a top-rated sign vendor, we offer many options.

Do you Apply Anti-Graffiti Lamination?2022-01-27T19:32:15+00:00

Graffiti can, unfortunately, be a problem on shops in Sydney, Melbourne, and other big cities in Austrlia. Thus, we can apply anti-graffiti lamination at an extra cost. It is an excellent option to make sure you can easily wipe off the panels when vandals spray them instead of having to reprint them all. Anti-graffiti lamination for signs comes only in gloss finish only.

Is it Cheaper to Buy Signs in Bulk?2022-01-27T18:32:47+00:00

Certainly, the more signs you buy, the better the price we can provide you with. More of the same print also assist reducing the cost vs multiple artwork setup. We offer unbeatable trade prices too, feel free to call us to discuss your requirements.

What are the Sizes of Panels Available?2022-01-27T18:32:00+00:00

A full sheet of standard ACM is 2440mm x 1220mm, so we can custom cut to any size within these dimensions. Oversized panels – We can’t direct print on these ones, we can only apply vinyl to them. The maximum size we can supply is 3000mm x 1500mm. Please note, oversized panels will have a considerable higher cost for transportation, we are limited to shipping oversized panels within Sydney Metro.


What Colours are Available for Signage?2022-01-27T18:31:33+00:00

We work with a wide range of colours with all basic ones available. The most common coulours for signage are printable white ACM sheets as well as black and brushed finished ACM panels.

What is the Turnaround Time for ACM panel printing?2022-01-27T18:30:56+00:00

In most cases, we have a quick turnaround of 1-3 days after artwork approval. Depending on the complexity of the project involved and with the use of CNC router cutting of complex shapes, V grooving ACM or large size orders, the standard turnaround is 5-7 days for dispatch.

Do you Laminate the ACM panels?2022-01-27T18:30:18+00:00

As a standard, we do laminate all ACM panel prints with a matte or gloss finish. We always recommend having the panels laminated, in particular for outdoor applications. However, we can also do cost-effective printing of them with no lamination. This might work just fine depending on the internal application involved, for shorter term.

How are You Signage Prices Considerably More Affordable?2022-01-27T19:42:55+00:00

We offer very affordable signs, not just in Sydney or Brisbane but throughout Australia. How? We mass produce ACM panels which gives us an edge over other suppliers. Due to the fact that we produce multiple panels, not just a few like many smaller companies, we have economies of scale. This allows us to negotiate better pricing with our suppliers, and pass the cost savings to our customers. Doing direct printing to the majority of ACM panels also gives us the ability to produce fast, with instant curing of the ink, ready to go straight to the lamination process. Following these processes allows us to provide great quality prints at lower costs than most competitors.
