Like most types of signs, there aren’t many limitations for its uses. They’re seen at courthouses, federal buildings, universities, commercial properties, on sculptures and benches – anywhere where it’s important to have a sign that can withstand the tests of time.

Plaques are cut via a water jet, and the artwork is engraved onto the metal. Although brass, bronze, and silver are the most common colors, we are able to offer alternative colors to match your themes. Signs can be made both large and small, and the thickness of the metal can vary between 1/8th an inch to 1/2 and inch, with thicker material adding to durability. All materials are cut to shape, and any painting of the sign to match a specific color is completed in-house.
