Custom Engraved Signs

Custom engraved signs are often chosen for many signage needs due to the fact that such a marking method is seen to be very durable, and is rather impervious to vandalism. Another reason is that engraving can also be used on a wide variety of materials, and these include the cheaper plastics to the more expensive woods and metals. With such versatility, it is no wonder that a lot of businesses choose to use such a signage type for their signs needs.

Engraved signs can be made using plastic, which is a cheap alternative to the more expensive materials some people sometimes choose. If you find that you cannot fit the use of wood into your budget, or your funds for signage won’t allow you to use metal, but your designs ask for these materials, you can actually choose plastic with wood grain or with metallic tones for such signage. Since this particular material can be used just about anywhere, you can opt for this for all your custom engraved signs.

When it comes to the kinds of signs you can create with the use of this marking method, you will find that almost all your indoor signs can actually be engraved signs. Here are some of the signs that can be made with engraving chosen as the marking method:

ADA compliant signs – your ADA compliant signs can be made with the use of engraving, with the raised letters and Braille translations made by having the machine engrave around the letters and dots to these are raised. You can also have your Braille translations made using the Raster method, which also needs bored holes into the sign for the raster beads to be placed in them.

Replaceable signs – signs that are slipped into holders can actually be changed whenever needed since these can be slipped in and out of such slots. These are often used for offices or spaces that change usage or user frequently. Cubicles, meeting rooms and other similar spaces often use such signs to make the changing of the copy posted in these holders easier, quicker and more cost effective. These sign plates are often made with plastic and are easy enough to use.

Information signs – these are signs that warn you of things not to do, things to look out for, procedures that need to be followed and many more. Examples of such signs include No Smoking signs, No Littering signs and No Entry/Exit signs. These can be made using plastic as well and can be easily posted in places where these are needed. Other signs that can be considered part of this group of signs include fire exit signs, safety signs and instructional signs that tell you what to do.

Directories – these are created using engraving since this is a durable marking method. Since some buildings do change room occupants, these signs can consist of multiple slide-in plates that carry the names of people or businesses occupying the offices or rooms in the building. If the rooms in the building are not likely to change usage or occupants at all, then these names can actually be engraved into a huge plate that is hung over the reception area of the building or in its lobby.

Desk signs and Desk nameplates – signs that carry the words “reception”, “concierge” and “information” are but a few of the signs that belong to this particular group. These are often made using plastic as well and are placed in desk sign holders which are then placed on top of desks, counters or reception tables.

These are but a few of the different kinds of signs you can create using engraving as a marking method. You can order any type of custom engraved sign from signage makers who have state of the art engraving machines that can easily create these signs for you. What other signs do you think can be created using this particular manufacturing method?
