A fun addition to your backyard patio, garage, den, or bar! This artwork looks great inside or out. Because it’s made from 1/8″ thick steel plate, it is built to last and withstand the elements.
As shown, the “Go Pig or Go Home!” sign is 11.75″ wide by 8″ Tall and 1/8″ thick. The Smiling Pig is 11.5 x 7.25″ and 1/8″ thick. The BBQ Pig is 12″ 6 6″ and 1/8″ thick. If you would like a custom smaller or larger size than ones listed, just let us know!
We can make/ship these in raw steel or powder-coated black. Buy it Powdercoated, leave it bare, or paint it yourself. We recommend Rustolium Painter’s Touch (available at Home Depot/Lowes/Menards/Ace Hardware). It is an all-in-one primer/paint which sprays easily and covers well.
Does Thickness Matter? YES! But it can be confusing because a lot of ads say “heavy duty,” “thick,” or “very durable,” but those are just words. Some ads will tell you it is a particular gauge, but if you are like us, these approaches make us feel like a goat looking at a watch – – pretty confused! So, in this listing we use 1/8″ thick metal. Let’s put that in a list of thicknesses using common coins:
1/8″ = .125″ = 11 Gauge = Thicker than a Quarter and a Dime Stacked on Top of Each Other (2.4% Thicker). It is 250% thicker than 18 Gauge and 60% thicker than 14 Gauge.
5/64″ = .078″ = 14 Gauge = Barely Thicker than a Nickel (1.6% thicker).
1/20″ = .05″ = 18 Gauge = Almost as Thick as a Dime (it is 6% short)
