FAUX METAL OUTDOOR SIGNAGE
An Engraved Outdoor Brushed Antique
Faux Metal Outdoor Signage is the first metallic
engraved acrylic laminate engineered and formulated for exceptional
corrosion resistance and UV stability. Its integrated hardcoat and
sub-surface brush finish provide superior protection for exterior
applications and is moisture and fingerprint resistant. Suitable
for interior applications as well. This material is easily cleaned
without surface marring, and displays a deep brush pattern with
a "real" looking metal finish.

Ultra black granite and ultra black marble provide a rich dark background for etching photos and text. The black granite has small white flecks - but is a hardier material and more suitable for floor installation. Either black granite or black marble holds up well for outdoor installation.
The black marble we engrave is very dark in color and does not have the white veins commonly associated with marble. Those would reduce the visibility of a photo
or lettering etched onto the surface.

We engrave 6" x 6", 5" x 7",
8 1/2 " x 11", 12" x 12", and 18" x 24"
tiles that can be purchased singly or made into an entire mural.
The process is very UV stable and weather resistant. Some clients
have purchased individual tiles for outdoor use and affixed them
to the flat surfaces of paving stones (sometimes partially buried
in the earth - often tilted at an angle) using an outdoor construction adhesive such PL brand.
The engraving can include both text and photos.
In addition to the flat tiles, other specific sizes are
available such as this 9" x 12" x 2" thick memorial
stone. Contact us with questions.
