All signs and plaques have a substrate of man-made materials. Specifically, 30 pound High Density Urethane(HDU) sign board. This is a product that was developed for the aerospace industry and has been used for signage for over 40 years. We coat our HDU signs and plaques with a cold-applied, REAL metal coating that is in use world-wide as an architectural and industrial coating. It is a well-proven, tough, and beautiful coating that gives the look of cast metal without the limitations, price, or weight.
Handmade and Hand Crafted
Every sign or plaque created by Atlas Signs and Plaques is handcrafted, meaning made-by-hand. That means that your plaque is totally unique from every other, and has been “touched” by many different hands. Different hands mean that there are variations in the look and finish of your sign. Your plaque undergoes 8 different steps before it is shipped off to you. Each step imparts a level of uniqueness making every plaque a true one-of-a-kind customized purchase.
These normal variations, little bumps, waves, and other variations in the finish, that might be called defects by some, are part of the charm that only a handcrafted item can deliver. At Atlas, we celebrate these variances. They make our creation, and your plaque, incomparable.
