Our state of the art graphics and production capabilities as well as our wide array of materials and processes enable us to manufacture standard and custom designed signs and plaques exactly to your specifications. We also offer design services, CAD, and compliance assistance.

Zinc signs are one piece metal signs in which all components are integral. Characters and Braille are produced on film, which is placed on the photosensitive sheet of zinc and exposed to a special light source. The exposed photosensitive image on the zinc is then developed and chemically machined with acid to create raised and recessed areas on the metal plate. The plate is trimmed to size and decorated to the designer’s specifications using the highest quality graffiti resistant, thermal-set, acrylic polyurethane finish.
