Wholesale Real Estate Signs

Wholesale real estate signs can be made in the Las Vegas area for GLVAR members at a discount. Posterhead Signs is a Member Benefit Partner with the Greater Las Vegas Association of realtors and offers a 10% discount for Las Vegas Realtor Signs. This discount is not only for normal real estate signs, but also for the larger signs in front of buildings and vacant land.

The most common size real estate professionals use is the 18″ x 24″ aluminum sign that is double sided and placed on a .040 aluminum substrate. However many realtors use coroplast signs on bank properties that come and go so that they just dispose of the sign after the sell. These coroplast signs are designed to last 3-4 months only, where as a .040 aluminum sign will last several years.

Wholesale real estate signs  also include the bigger signs like the 4ft x 4ft and 4ft x 8ft real estate signs that are placed in front of commercial properties and vacant land. These signs need to be much more durable and require more than just a simple aluminum substrate. MDO real estate signs are used for these types of properties or the dibond aluminum panels which are double sided aluminum signs with a filler in between to give the sign some thickness. Both the MDO sign and aluminum sign will last many years because they are laminated with a matte or gloss finish over the printed vinyl that allows them to repel fading and scratching.

Check with the Greater Las Vegas Real Estate Association ( GLVAR) for a list of sign companies that offer discounts to their members.

Las Vegas Post and Panel Signs

Las Vegas post and panel signs are common signage for the real estate and construction fields in town. Las Vegas post and panel signs work very well in the outdoor weather and can withstand the intense heat of the summer sun. These signs are normally 1/2 MDO board and are used by:

1. Construction Companies

2. Real Estate Professionals

3. Government

4. Property Managers and many others.

What is a MDO sign board ?

MDO stands for Medium Density Overlay,  a paintable wood surface made of plywood with a tough, weather resistant resin overlay bonded to the wood by heat and pressure to form one unit. These MDO boards come in various thicknesses, similar to plywood. The 1/2 thick MDO board is most common by they also make 3/4″ and 1 ” thick boards as well. Full color vinyl prints are then printed with large format printers and then attached to the MDO wood panels, then laminated with outdoor laminate to help protect against fading. The life expectancy of these signs is 2 to 3 years and then fading will occur and / or splintering of the wood. The Las Vegas summer heat is really tough on most signs, cars, houses, etc. with nothing lasting as long as it is suppose to. The average battery life of a car cattery is just 2 summers in Las Vegas, even though you can buy 7 year warrantied batteries.

These post and panel signs can be seen very often in the area and are used quite frequently in a v shape so that the sign can be seen from oncoming traffic in both directions. They are used often in front of properties that are for lease or for sale by realtors and also used quite extensively at construction sites where a construction company wants to let everybody know what they are building or for branding by the construction company of their name.

Post and panel signs can be purchased at local sign companies in Las Vegas.

Sign Museum

Las Vegas Sign Museum

The Las Vegas Sign Museum at 770 North Las Vegas Blvd. ( Bonanza and Las Vegas Blvd)  is a very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon in Las Vegas. There website can be found at www.neonmuseum.org  and more information can be found on Self Growth website at : http://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/las-vegas-sign-museum-and-interesting-sites . Over 1700 people have written reviews on Google about the Sign Museum  and it has a 4.5 star rating out of 5 !

The Las Vegas Sign Museum is the boneyard of the old signs that use to hang at casinos and other famous places in Las Vegas. Rather than destroy the signs and the historical value the sign represent, a non profit organization  has made a museum of these old signs. The signs are rich in history and the history is explained during the self guided tour or organized tours. The signs represent history of when the mob ( Bugsy Siegel) was building and running the casinos. Just down the street is the famous Las Vegas Mob Museum where more history can be learned about the shady underworld belly that Las Vegas was once famous for. The former Mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman, was instrumental in getting the Las Vegas Mob Museum built. In fact, it is my understanding that Mr. Goodman represented many people who were involved in the legal system.

The Las Vegas signs were built in Las Vegas by the big sign companies that still exist locally. These signs were all hand built and the quality of craftsmanship was superb.

If you have the opportunity while you are here in Las Vegas, take the time away from the casinos and all the fun they offer to tour the Las Vegas Sign Museum. It will certainly enlighten you about the history of Las Vegas and give you a new understanding and appreciation for ” Sin City”.

Custom Wood Signs in Vegas

Custom wood signs in Vegas are available through local sign companies for those clients that prefer wood signs versus the aluminum signs. Several years ago, the heavy wood signs were the main sign when making larger signs. That has changed now with technology and the ability to use aluminum substrates. However, there are some cases where custom wood signs have an advantage over aluminum.

In windy areas, the heavier wood signs have an advantage over the lighter aluminum signs. The heaviness of the wood makes them more formidable against the high winds that Las Vegas experiences from time to time.

Custom wood signs are made just like any other type of sign. The graphic is printed on a large format printer with special inks designed to last in the outdoor weather of Las Vegas, laminated so that the signs ink will last longer and protect the vinyl print against weatherization, and then applied to the wood in the same manner as the aluminum sign. The cost difference between a wooden signs and an aluminum sign is about 25% because the MDO board sign is a more expensive substrate. These custom wood signs are used for selling vacant land and also placed in front of commercial buildings to let people driving by that the property is for rent or for sale. The larger the custom wood sign, the more information can be placed on the sign to describe the property and place contact information for that real estate company or individual representing the property.
