Dura-Wood Signs
are Made to Withstand the Elements

Need a cost-effective outdoor sign? A wood painted sign may be just the answer. Our outdoor Dura-Wood painted signs are created on the best quality MDO exterior plywood. These signs are extremely durable, highly versatile and are ideal for commercial, industrial, land and retail applications and these custom project signs can be made any size to your specifications. Some common sizes are 18" x 24", 2' x 3', 2' x 4', 4' x 4' and 4' x 8'. Each sign is primed, painted and sealed to protect it from the outdoor environment. They can be screwed or nailed through and brackets can be used to attach these signs to posts or to a wall.

Technically Speaking:

MDO Dura-Wood sign boards are made of high quality plywood with the same adhesives used in marine plywood. A special hardwood face veneer - sanded before the overlay is applied - minimizes wood grain show-through, even after it's painted. The tough overlay is a high fiber sheet which has been treated with a resin formula for optimal paint adhesion yielding superior surface performance and much longer life than other wooden sign materials.

Our select MDO brand also features solid inner plys and a tight core gap which means fewer and smaller edge voids for greater weather resistance. No other wood painted sign stays as smooth for as long. Although the wooden panel itself is sealed at the factory with commercial primer and paint, the lettering and graphics are produced in vinyl and applied to the painted surface resulting in a premium quality Dura-Wood sign.

Whether you are looking for a temporary sign or a permanent sign for your business, Dura-Wood signs with computer generated vinyl letters and graphics will project a highly professional image.
