    Airless or one of those wagner things. That stuff is too thick for an HVLP.

    If you want my opinion, acrylic latex is not the paint to use for outdoor signs. After spraying, you'll wait several days for the finish to cure. Research Matthews acrylic urethane. With an accelerator added you can spray at the end of the day and work on the sign the next day. If applied correctly, the surface will be smooth as glass and the finish will last a long time. If you buy a mixing station you are able to match pantone colors, vinyl colors and any paint manufacturers color chart. We mix as little as 1/2 pint of the color we want. In the long run it will pay for itself.
