UV Printed Metal Health Safety Signs | Mutoh XpertJet 461UF

Metal Safety Signs Sell for $25 each and cost under $7.00 to make

You know that local business you’re already selling t-shirts to? Well, odds are they are now in need of some health safety signs for their storefront. These signs can range from face mask requirements to 6-foot distance reminders.

Some stores are currently using a few pieces of paper taped to the front door. Or laminated sheets printed out on their business laser printer. But these look terrible and have to be replaced constantly.

Not the image most businesses want to portray.

Custom Health Safety Signs for Sale

After some research on Amazon and other sites, we found that generic health safety metal signs are retailing around $20.00.  

BUT these signs are just generic messages with 2 color designs.

We also found official CDC guideline posters retailing for around $30.00. But these laminated posters can’t withstand the outdoor environment for long and even indoors tend to get roughed up.

This research shows that people will pay more money for signs that have an official CDC logo.

So, we will use $25.00 retail for our calculations, but pricing can vary widely
