Traffic Signs

Whether you're using Digital Printing or Traditional Fabrication methods for traffic signs, 3M has you covered.

  • 3M is committed to providing you with retroreflective sheeting, inks, and overlays to help you fabricate high quality roadway signs.


High-performing traffic signs

Three important characteristics for reflective sheeting to consider

  • Retroreflective roadway signs at night

    Retroreflective material for increased visibility

    Brightness matters. You can download our white paper on traffic sign brightness here.

  • Reflective road sign in city

    Durability

    With 3M, you can count on long-lasting quality and performance. We offer up to 12 years of protection when using select 3M components and have multiple warranty tiers available for several classes of reflective sheeting and multiple imaging methods.

    Contact us on our support page to learn more.

  • Reflective street signs at night

    Observation and entrance angles

    In this demonstration, you’ll see how elevated seating positions impact sign visibility and how higher-performing sign sheeting can help.

    Traffic sign fabrication and orientation also matters in creating signs that reflect from different angles. Learn more about road sign orientation uniformity here.

3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG³ Reflective Sign Sheeting

  • Diamond grade reflective signs on highway at night

    Outsmart the dark.

    DG³ sheeting is our top-of-the-line reflective sign sheeting. With nearly twice the reflectivity of our lower-grade signage material, 3M Diamond Grade Sheeting helps create more visible signs, and more visible signs have been shown to cut nighttime accidents by up to 46%.*

    Learn more about 3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG³ and how it compares to other sheeting types on our next page.
