White is definitely the in colour. We are now being requested to make white memorial crosses reminiscent of those in wartime graveyards. We have also developed a new painting system using a two part industrial paint which is very tough indeed. This is being used for these crosses along with the rest of the white signage. Have a look on our dedicated memorial website. http://www.uk-memorials.net/memorial-crosses.html
Black and white signs have been popular for a long time. Now we are being asked for simple black and white memorial plaques. The engraved plaque in the photo was made from an acrylic laminate. We engraved though the black layer to show the white layer underneath. These plaques are waterproof, weatherproof and maintenance free. http://www.sign-maker.net/memorial/engraved-laminate-memorial.htm
Brass House Signs are very traditional and if kept beautifully polished they really say something about the property and the person living there. They look at their best when mounted on a wooden backing board. The sign in the photo was only 150mm x 150mm in size but still looked very effective. http://www.sign-maker.net/engraved/brass-house-signs.htm
These really are top quality wooden framed signs and are designed to last. They feel really solid and have a substantial weight to them.
The frame itself is made of oak. The inner panel is made from Tricoya board – a very stable, strong, durable and weatherproof wood based material with a 50 year guarantee.
The outer frame and inner panel are spray painted using is a two component polyurethane paint which is much more durable than standard brush-on paints. Finally the lettering is painted on.
We now make so many memorials we have decided to create a new division within The Sign Maker called UK Memorials. Have a look at our new memorial website www.uk-memorials.net.
