Getting Frenchy at Atlas Signs and Plaques   French architecture is among the richest and most interesting the world has ever known. The origins of French architecture can be traced back to the Stone Age. Hmmm, I am imagining an address plaque from that time… Needless to say, French architecture and design will always be an interesting topic and one we have embraced a bit with our address and name plaques. Fleur-de-Lis Arch Plaque Stainless Steel Our Fleur-de-Lis Address Number Plaque brings a rich sense of the past to your home. The Fleur-de-Lis, translates as Flower of the Lily and is steeped in history. From France to England, to Florence, to Religious Symbolism, the Fleur-de-Lys has represented a virtuous force for good.

Do Fonts Talk – The Writing’s on the Wall

Impact Font Do fonts speak? Do fonts convey a message without the necessity of words? Can fonts define an era? Is it possible for fonts to set a mood? Do fonts have personality? The answer is yes and more to all of the above. Additionally, typefaces and fonts can serve as an iconic identity for a large company or even an entire nation.

The fonts can so much define the company that when a total organizational remake is in order, logos and fonts are changed giving a whole new look and feel to the firm. Is it reaching to say that a font can define a country? Pull [...]

Vertical House Numbers look great on both traditional and contemporary homes Peacock Address Plaque Bronze Verdi Raised   The designers at Atlas Signs and Plaques continue to fill the void left by the limitations of cast bronze. Atlas provides real metal coatings to modern HDU foam giving the longevity, look, and feel that costs up to 75% less than foundry castings. We are not limited by shape, size, number of letters, or imagination. Now, that makes sense! Atlas Signs and Plaques uses a patented metalizing process to coat your plaque with real bronze, copper, brass, silver-nickel and aluminum. We then add a beautiful rich patina to bring out the timeless beauty of the metal art. The patina is actually a reaction with the metal and not a surface coating. If you desire a little splash of color like some of the examples, we can do it. Just let [...]
