Material Options for Engraved Signs

For engraved signs, you will find that almost any material that can be marked with the use of an engraving machine can be used to create these signs. This means you have a wide array of signage materials at your disposal. This broadly expands the potential for unique and interesting designs for your office signs. This also allows for greater adjustments to your budget, should you feel that you can create the kinds of signs you want while lowering your signage expenditures considerably.

Here are some of the materials you can use for your engraved office signage ideas:

Metal – probably one of the more popular choices when it comes to the creation of these signs is metal. This is because metals are not only durable, but they are also rather impressive to look at. Metals exude a sleek and professional look that most offices and establishments love, hence their constant use for signage.

The metals you can find being used for this purpose are usually those that are corrosion resistant, like stainless steel, bronze and aluminum. The latter is probably the most used of all these metals since aluminum is one of the most abundant metals on the planet and it is also one of the lightest as well as the most cost effective.

Plastic – the most popular material for engraved signage is plastic, and for numerous good reasons. Plastic is not only cheap, it is also very versatile. This means that you can create a wide variety of signs using this material and it won’t cost you that much.

Another plus factor for plastic is its ability to masquerade as another type of material. If you find that other signage material options are way out of your budget, you can opt for plastic and still get the kind of look you want from it. Also worth noting is that plastic can be layered to create multi-colored signs and it is also very lightweight.

Stone – this is usually chosen for signs that are placed outdoors due to their imperviousness to the changes in the weather. This does not mean however that they are exclusively used outdoors. You can also use stone for your indoor office signage, if you so want to.

The different kinds of stone that is often used for this purpose include marble, granite and limestone. The texture and physical appearance of these choices make them ideal for use with signage creation. These are also some of the stone types that are rather easy to engrave and to cut into the different shapes used for signs.

Mounting Options You Can Use for Your Engraved Office Signs

Engraved office signage mounting options often depend on what kind of material you choose to use. If your materials are lightweight, you can use any of the available mounting choices a signage manufacturer has. If your signs are rather heavy however, you will be relegated to choosing among mounting choices that are meant for heavier materials only.

Some of the mounting options you have when it comes to engraved office signs made out of light materials, like plastic and aluminum, include adhesives and Velcro. These mounting choices can easily carry such signs easily. For heavier materials, like stone and stainless steel plates, you might need more substantial mounting choices such as rivets and screws.
