    I've got a towing company that wants 2 3'x5' signs on the outside of their shop.I'm going to be printing this on my Roland VP540 on to #m IJ180Cv2 and lam with 3M 8519 this should give me a high quality sign....but now my problem...what to mount it too that will last outdoors...I'm currently thinking 4 MM Dibond or Alupanel.
    What do you experts recommend?
    fire away !
    Thanks

    Look into Polymetal.. Its the same as Dibond but much cheeper.

    Last long outdoors?

    One sided = econolite
    Two sided = alumalite

    A little pricey but the best for what you are doing.

    What about Sintra? We use it all the time outdoors and comes in a variety of thickness.
