Default Metal signs

Hey do any of you have metal signs on the back of your trailer that just say your name and a brief selection of what you do? I am trying to find a company that can do that. Not having the best luck. If any of you do this I want to know who you used. Thanks.

metal signs wont be cheep. Metal is high and having someone cut the vinyl letters out isnt cheap either.

I took the cheap way out, used some leftover 2x4 and 1x4 from a deck job and made a frame for the sign and stained it.

took it all apart and ordered a banner from vista print and wraped the banner around a big piece of chloroplast (plastic) board. and put the frame back together around it. It has lasted a couple years and I have had no issues out of it. I made 2 signs, both 3 x 5, one for each side of my trailer. Cost me less than $80.

Could you get yourself a piece of sheet metal and paint it to what ever color you want. Then either take it to a local sign shop or get the vinyl lettering and put it on the sheet metal yourself?
