Architectural Signage


Since 1958, architects and designers have specified Metal photo for high-value outdoor and indoor signage projects such as wayfinding signs, blueprint reproductions, building certification plaques and donor recognition plates.

Metalphoto photosensitive anodized aluminum allows you to capture rich, photographic quality images inside of metal providing unmatched longevity and the durable, modern look of anodized aluminum. Because Metalphoto is a photographic process, its image resolution, clarity and durability are superior to printed or etched signs. The Metalphoto image is cleanable, graffiti proof and impervious to sunlight and abrasion.
