Welcome to our Historic and Memorial Markers Collection – Show that you care about your treasured historic site and offer passersby a brief history lesson with the warm elegance of real metal.

Whether for your business, residence, the whole community, designated historical area, National Register of Historic Places, historic renovation, historic sites, or just because you love it, we have the right plaque, sign, or marker for your needs.

  • Why be square when you can be almost square? Honor your building's heritage by proudly displaying its historical significance with our Almost Square Historic Plaque. Neighborhoods, cities and designated historical areas can have each individual plaque customized with a unique message.
  • Combine a wedding, love of the sea, and a location, and you have described the perfect nautical themed wedding gift plaque. The Anchor's Away Wedding Plaque has every element necessary for the newly married maritime couple. The anchor symbolizes the couples permanence while the latitude and longitude can denote the singular spot on this earth where the wedding took place. No need to be confined by old fashioned street address on this wedding plaque. You might also be interested in our Latitude Longitude Plaque
  • Designs from the Arts and Crafts Movement were not nearly as austere as often believed, and the Arts and Crafts Era Name Plate Plaque fits right in with the movement. Floral and natural elements were common and often dominated an entire room. While rebelling against the ornate excesses of Victorian Design, beauty and grace were, nevertheless, showcased in everything from type fonts to textiles. Make it a name, phrase or address plaque- But check out the Hunter Font images to see font. The numbers are a bit odd to make something with numbers.  For an address sign or sign with numbers we recommend the American Craftsman Address Sign which uses the Arts and Crafts font.
  • The Benguiat Business Plaque is a no-nonsense plaque. Named for the creator of the font that it uses, Ed Benguiat, the Benguiat business plaque suffers no frills, no excess, no nonsense. It is a straight to the point plaque that will grant your office a deep tone of professionalism. If you are an attorney, hospital, doctor, or other professional that simply like things straight up with no surprises, then this is the sign for you.

  • The Original Blossom Tree Plaque. Have it as an Address Number Plaque, or a Phrase Plaque by inserting a favorite quotation or witty saying. This makes a very personal and thoughtful gift. The painted blossoms with high quality epoxy and enamel is a little extra though...so choose that option if you like by selecting colors in the pulldown menu. You might also be interested in our Rectangle Blossom Tree Sign.
  • Say what you need to say on The Building Recognition Plaque. Use this custom sign to recognize the Architect, show compliance with Green Building Standards, to Acknowledge Donors, Honor the Board, or Inform about the Site's History.
  • The Butterfly Memorial Plaque brings a touch of magic and poetry to our most solemn moments. A personalized remembrance for those that we miss. Many believe that butterflies symbolize spirit, representing freedom and beauty as they take flight. When we experience the vital connection between butterflies and nature, we tend to instinctively feel that peace and harmony are truly around us. Also available as an address plaque here
  • Pertaining to the sky or visible heaven, or to the universe beyond the earth’s atmosphere, as in celestial body. To the spiritual or invisible heaven, heavenly, divine. Just say Love. We hope this brings you comfort in your loss.
  • The knots you see on the outer ring of our Celtic Tree of Life Plaque don't have a beginning or an end as they represent how nature is eternal. The knots are also represented in the roots and branches of a tree woven together without end, indicating the continuous cycle of life on earth. Symbolizing harmony and balance.  
  • The first step to having repeat customers is to make them feel wanted and appreciated as they enter. The Business Welcoming Sign greets your clients and guests warmly and makes the most positive first impression possible. After receiving your clients with the Business Welcome Plaque, followup on the design theme with complimenting name and directional signage. It will all match, giving your professional office the coordinated look that you have been seeking.
  • The Cross Pet Memorial Plaque is a loving commemoration of our four legged family members. In those quiet moments of reflection we find solace in knowing we will always remember the time we spent with them. As well as the happiness that was shared. This is a tangible way to honor their lives in a firm and heartfelt way. We have options available so be sure to select either cat, paw prints or horseshoes. Size is approx. 9x12x1 inches.

  • The Dragonfly Memorial Sign is a perfect commemoration for your loved one. With enough room to tell a whole story (depending on the size of the plaque). Moreover, the dragonfly is a symbol of courage, strength, and happiness in Japanese folklore. These symbols are a beautiful attribute in a time of healing. This speedy insect is loved by many and will bring much comfort. Customize this sign with a story, a verse, a memory and so much more. We know there are so many meaningful things to say and The Dragonfly Memorial Sign can say it for you.
  • The Eagle Scout Memorial Plaque is so named because it is one of the nicest things that we have seen done by any person. An Eagle Scout designed and built a Veteran's Memorial Garden, and did it in memory of his own grandfather, who served his country as a Navy Veteran and a Police officer. How wonderful is that? You, of course, can have your Custom Memorial Plaque designed exactly how you want it.
  • Bring on the magic with our Fairy Memorial Plaque. I love this fairy and think we captured the form beautifully with this sign. While shown as a memorial it could also be made into an address sign, welcome sign or name sign. And since we make each sign to order we could even add a fairy or move a fairy to another location.
  • The Shape of Things to Come. One of the many advantages of the sign creation method used by Atlas Signs and Plaques is the ability to fashion signs or plaques, not only in the shape you desire, but to do so without a huge cost premium. The Fancy Frame Name Plate is a grand example of the concept. Shape can be an important design consideration, so let Atlas make your sign stand out among the squares of the world. Our wall mounted Fancy Frame Name Plaques are perfect for your entire firm. Banks, Professional Buildings, Hospitals, Clinics, Service Firms, and Government Offices can have affordable, elegant, metal finished name plates for every door or work area. Presenting a professional image while preserving budget dollars is critically important. Atlas Signs and Plaques can help you meet both goals. Footlite Font.
  • Flowers are always an appropriate touch and our Flowered Memorial Plaque frames your thoughts with leaves and petals. Our memorial plaques are perfect for dedication to special people or loved ones. We have memorial plaques that can be staked in the ground or displayed on a wall.
  • Our Footlite Memory Plaque made to order for those seeking a historic marker or memorial plaque with a bit of a restrained modern feel. By using the Footlight Font we are able to combine readability with the good looks of a serif style font, giving a sense of both classic and contemporary. We can add your logo or other symbol too.

  • The Garden Memorial Plaque supports memories with the timeless look of the Footlight Typeface. The plaque itself offers an enormous amount of space to say what is on your heart about the person you are honoring.
  • We named our Goudy Business Plaque after the font used. Which is Goudy, of course. Dating from 1916, and rooted in the Arts and Crafts Movement, this Frederic W. Goudy design retains a contemporary look that is pleasing readers almost 100 years after its inception. The font is very well balanced and the minor curvature could only be called graceful with a bit of a calligraphic look. So readable, it has been used in Harpers Magazine for decades. Wonderful and distinctive could describe its use on a business sign. Not too flamboyant for a serious business and not too stodgy for a growing company.
  • The phrase, “Happy Campers” is pretty much redundant. No wonder you’re happy—you’re out where all your senses are sharpened and heightened; everything looks better, smells better, tastes better; and you hear better, you breathe better, and you feel better—more alive. Plus there’s nothing like a hefty dose of fresh air to make you go out like a light at bedtime (sorry, “sleeping bag time”), and give you the best sleep you’ll ever had. A personalized real metal camper sign on your house tells everybody that when you’re not camping, you’re thinking about camping, either bringing up fond memories, or looking forward to storing up new ones. No wonder they call it, “The Great Outdoors!”
  • The mao hau hele, is Hawaii's State Flower, and one of the memories we all bring home after visiting the islands.

  • Red Ladybugs or Ladybirds on an oval Plaque… They are one in the same and you can have them adorn your home with our Ladybugs on an Oval Plaque. Popular due to many cultures considering them lucky, you can find Ladybugs in nursery rhymes, in songs and in folklore. Despite popular belief, the number of spots do not reflect age. Rather, they (along with the coloration) are determined by the species and genetics. Let the colorful creatures on this sign bring you joy, hope and luck.
  • This is where you met. Where you left. Where you want to be. The LATITUDE and LONGITUDE Plaque is for you, or the two of you. You can get just as accurate as you like. If you go 4 digits on the right side of the decimal, you are accurate to about 30 feet. Go one more and you will be within about 3 feet of that most-important location. Go to 6 places and you get to inches. It is possible with a little research to even get to the side of the tree under which your most important moment occurred. The only catch is that you have to give us the coordinates. There are plenty of web sites that can help you out, so make some fun by having your most important person try to figure out the meaning of the Latitude and Longitude Gift Sign.

  • Nueva Dedication Plaque has a wonderfully balanced look that is a result of the use of the "Nueva" font. The typeface which has an interesting, older, almost calligraphic look, was not designed until 1994 by Carol Twombly.
