    I'm looking for a pre-finished panel, preferably 4x10, in dark/navy blue. It could be 3mm ACM, fluted core, or 080 aluminum or any flat rigid exterior material which would take vinyl letters. My vendors don't have anything, even in their custom architectural panels. I could go powder coated, but I think a pre-finished panel would be more economical and require less handling.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    The darkest blue is like a Royal Blue, which isn't really near navy, let alone dark navy. If you don't wanna powder coat, how about taking it to a body shop and having them use lacquer ?? Or just flood coat some screen ink.

    Yea, we could paint them ourselves, but it's like 50 2x10 panels...I may get a price on powder coating.

    If you're using 3mm ACM, you're not looking for strength, so are these single-sided ?? It's the alternative of .080, which threw me.

    Yes, single sided and will be mounted on brick walls.

    The powder coater near me can't really do 10ft (maybe yours can.) You might want to get a quote from Maaco or a body shop.

    what about getting cast plotter film or wrap film and applying to a standard white panel

    we have done this on several projects, all of them are still in good condition

    If it were a few panels that's what I'd do, but with the quantity I'd rather not. I have found one manufacturer (Alupanel) that has a dark blue ACM (thanks Gary), waiting for a sample now

    i have used the alupanel Dk Blue in the past, not a bad color. 1 side has a gloss finish, other side is matt finish.

    Yes, it's an odd setup. Always have to remember to check which side is out. And what if for a simple double sided sign, you have to bond two together.
