Etching & Engraved Signs
Engraved signs and labels remain a popular choice with our customers for a wide variety of reasons.
Specialist engraving laminates are available in a range of colours and can be used to create functional, eye-catching labels which offer excellent resistance to weather, chemicals, scratching and general wear. Furthermore, recent advances in computer engraving technology means that these labels can be produced more economically than ever before.
Common applications include switch plates, health and safety labels, licensee signs, control panels and name plates. Where customers require something a little more prestigious, for instance a registered business plate or commemorative plaque, Mercury Phillips Signs offers engraving on to brass, stainless steel, aluminium and bronze.
Chemical engraving facilities are also available to reproduce intricate logos and font styles, or to offer significant cost savings on quantity. We offer complete sign solutions and can provide signs fully inclusive of design service and manufacture to installation. Our highly experienced friendly staff have an ‘eye for detail’ and offer a quality product that stands out from the rest.
About Sign Etching
Etching is the process of using a strong acid or other chemicals to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio in the metal. This creates a durable sign solution that is clean and effective. It is a process that allows the long term transfer of complex illustrations to a metal surface and creates a highly effective sign solution for historical sites and nature trails.
About Sign Engraving
Engraving is the practice of incising a design on to a hard flat surface, by cutting grooves into it. The engraved sign can be infilled with colour to provide durable wayfinding solutions or bespoke designs.
