Metallic classics

Three materials have proven particularly useful for metal industrial signs: Aluminium, stainless steel and brass. Metal signs are optically high-quality, refine your products and are suitable for indoor and outdoor use - a robust and timeless classic.


Aluminum is very common in the signage industry and allows for low-cost, high-volume production.

Aluminum can be printed, painted, embossed, engraved or anodized, i.e. electrolytically oxidized. An oxide layer is created by anodizing, in whose open pores an oxide layer is embedded using various printing processes. Closing the pores makes the colors durable and abrasion-resistant, while the metal structure remains recognizable. The surface remains flat, non-slip and insensitive to solvents.

The combination of digital printing and aluminum results in a universal, robust, environmentally friendly and inexpensive product. Colors according to your ideas, surfaces glossy, matt or brushed.

Stainless steel

Stainless steel is a recognizable high quality, robust and durable material. It lasts almost forever in the version etched or milled - i.e. without color inlay. In container construction and in the offshore area (V4A), stainless steel signs are particularly suitable for almost unlimited use.

They are also of great importance in the food industry because of the chemically neutral surfaces.

Stainless steel signs can be screwed or welded and are characterized by an excellent price-performance ratio - especially in large series. We mainly process the materials 1.4301, 1.4404 and 1.4571 in a thickness of 0.3 to 3.0 mm.


Brass plates are preferred in ship and tank construction as well as in the vehicle industry. They are also very popular as decorative individual pieces for advertising and company signs.

Brass can be engraved, milled, printed and etched. We use Ms 58 for engraving and Ms 63 for etching. The relief-like or blank surface, together with deepened or colored writing, creates a particularly elegant effect, which is permanently protected by a clear lacquer coating. A dark natural patina can also be achieved on request.
