5x10' RTG MDO?

    Hey guys, Have a customer who seen a 5x10' dibond sign i did last month and want the same size but something that will go between 2 posts for a double sided sign by the road.

    The sign will be advertising commercial space for lease and the biggest i can get RTG (Primed and painted) MDO is 4x8' at 1/2 or 3/4" thick.

    I will be providing the double sided sign face with a digital print only, They will frame/install.

    I am looking for something that i can buy, and directly place graphics onto. I do not paint nor have a place to paint at.

    Thanks!

    2 s/s diebond attached to exterior plywood structure that he builds. Doubt you will find RTG mdo in that size, and it most likely will want interior structural support anyway.

    Thanks guys, My supplier doesn't have alumacore in 10mm but i am thinking i can give the customer a option of 2 3mm dibond panels and 2 .063" aluminum panels for price comparison to be attached to plywood.

    That makes the pricing per panel about $123 different so hopefully one fits their budget.

    Sound good?

    Check with your local lumber yard, around here they carry 1/2" MDO 6'x12'

    If you have a couple saw horses, a paint pan & roller......then move the car out of the driveway. Its time to learn how to paint.
