Good signs are a business’s first impression and the real estate industry is no different. Buyers look at catchy and enticing signs which helps them make decisions about a certain business or brand. 

Many factors make a good real estate sign, like the materials used or the placement of the sign. Here at Blink Signs, we’ve made a list of the top materials for real estate signs.

Real Estate Sign Materials

Typically, advertising signs are made using sturdy materials. For real estate signs, the signs can be placed either inside or outside. Using the same signs in different locations means that they need to be durable, lightweight, and easy to transport. The materials used are:

  • Sintra Board
  • Corrugated Plastic
  • Gator Board
  • Foam Board
  • Ultra Board 

Interior Signs

Real estate signs can be both interior or exterior signs. For indoors, light-weight and plastic signs are suitable. Let’s see which materials work well for indoors:

Gator Board - A rigid and lightweight display material. It has a dense inner foam core and a wood-fiber veneer exterior. It's resistant to water and scratches, which makes it ideal for portable signs.

Foam Board - Signs made of foam boards are quite common. They’re rigid, extremely light-weight, and inexpensive. A foam-based sign has a dense core sandwiched between two thick layers of paper. They’re ideal for constantly changing sign requirements. You just have to change the paper, and you’ll have a new real estate sign every time.

Exterior Signs

Real estate signs should be displayed out-front. For exterior signs, sturdy and heavy-weight materials are ideal, like:

Sintra Board - Made of PVC interior and exterior, Sintra boards are heavy and rigid with a satin finish. They can also withstand extreme weather conditions. The permanent quality of PVC makes Sintra boards ideal for long-term outdoor signs.
