Dibond panels offer the ultimate outdoor signage when strength is a factor! These boards are made from two aluminium sheets sandwiched around a core made of solid polyethylene. As a result, these panels are extremely rigid, temperature stable, and stay very flat. Dibond signage is perfect for use as shop fascia signs or permanent outdoor displays.
At Cheap as Prints, we offer 3mm thick dibond panels with single or double-sided printing. Choose from square cut, rounded corners, or cut-to-shape finishes with optional protective lamination!

Dibond is extremely strong and ideal for any type of indoor or outdoor signage. These high-strength panels offer one of the best solutions for permanent exterior displays. The material is sandwiched between two layers of aluminium with a black-coloured polyethylene core in the centre. The polyethylene core gives its strength without the added weight of a pure aluminium board. This means it will keep its shape and integrity without being affected by changes in the weather. It is stable at all temperatures and will not expand or contract like plastic, but can be fabricated in to various shapes.
Dibond is also highly resistant to damage and will not shatter on impact, making it great for harsh outdoor settings. The print surface is smooth and the pre-painted enamel prevents colours from fading. Dibond panels are also used to create a modern appearance for home décor or to complete a signature look for custom art prints.
Our commitment to delivering cutting-edge printing solutions is underscored by our investment in modern large-format printers. This technological prowess enables us to offer state-of-the-art printing on dibond on all A-sizes including custom shapes and sizes.

Dibond is a brand name for a type of aluminium composite material (ACM). It consists of two thin aluminium sheets bonded to a solid polyethylene core. It features a smooth print surface for optimum vibrancy and known for its long-term durability.
Dibond is well-suited for outdoor signage due to its durability and weather-resistant properties. The aluminium composite material withstands exposure to elements such as rain, UV rays, and temperature fluctuations without warping or fading, ensuring a long-lasting and professional appearance.
Dibond signs are printing through large-format printing methods using eco-solvent inks. This guarantees vibrant colour depth, water-resistant characteristics, and scratch resistance. Additionally, the process emits a low odour, contributing to a reduced environmental impact during production.
Dibond signs are often used for outdoor signage, including shop front signs or long-term displays. They are also popular for displaying graphics, photos, and exhibition panels.
Dibond signs boast a lifespan exceeding 8 years when well-maintained in outdoor settings, and they can last even longer when utilised indoors. The exterior-grade durability makes them suitable for a range of outdoor signage applications.
Yes, dibond signs are completely resistant to rust, waterproof, impervious to rot, and chemically resistant.
Yes, dibond signs can be custom-cut into different shapes. This allows for creative and unique signage designs. The cutting process is done with precision equipment to achieve accurate and clean edges.
While dibond has a durable surface, it is not entirely scratch-proof. Care should be taken to avoid abrasive materials during cleaning and handling to minimise the risk of scratches. Choosing to laminate dibond signs will provide a layer of protection preventing the print from scratching easily.
Laminating dibond signs offers enhanced protection by adding a layer that makes the surface more resistant to scratches, ensuring longevity and maintaining the visual integrity of the signage. Additionally, lamination provides an extra barrier against UV rays, preventing fading and contributing to the signs’ durability in outdoor settings.
Dibond signs are relatively easy to clean. You can use a mild detergent mixed with water and a soft cloth to wipe off dirt. Avoid using abrasive materials that may scratch the surface.
Yes, dibond is recyclable. The aluminium sheets and polyethylene core can be separated and recycled, contributing to its environmental friendliness.
While dibond is highly durable and resistant to cracking, only extreme and forceful impact could potentially cause damage, so it is generally considered crack-resistant but not entirely crackproof.
Dibond signs can be installed using methods such as screwing, adhesive mounting, or using standoffs, depending on the application and surface, ensuring a secure and visually appealing display.
