Help with Tourist Signs...


Can anyone point me to some laymans info on the materials to use for brown tourist signs?

On close inspection of a proper one, it appears they have a white reflective honeycomb material on the back with either a transparent brown or reflective honeycomb brown over the top...

Have read a little online and it seems you can get away with engineering grade reflective which is less shiny... not sure how to best advise my customer...

I would use a diamond grade reflective with a clear vinyl print on top

I did one with a brown reflective with white reflective cut out letters, I got the vinyl from Hexis. Bit of a pain to cut though.
