As shown, the “Go Pig or Go Home!” sign is 11.75″ wide by 8″ Tall and 1/8″ thick. The BBQ Pig is 12″ 6 6″ and 1/8″ thick. The Smiling Pig is 11.5 x 7.25″ and 1/8″ thick. If you would like a smaller or large size or finish than one listed, just let us know!
We can make/ship these in raw steel, painted, clear coated, or pre-rusted.
***Please note that steel in its natural state has blemishes in it. We show it painted with 3 colors, flat back, and all natural. If you go with natural metal or Clear option, the blemishes will show. If you do not want to see them, just pick out a paint color or paint them yourself. 🙂
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)
If you want this super thick, we can make this out of 1/4″ steel, which is twice as thick as our 1/8″ (five times thicker than 18 gauge). It would be thicker than two quarters and two dimes, all four stacked on top of each other, and is called 3 gauge!!! Just let us know.
