Anodised Aluminium - Anoprinting

Anodised aluminium really is tough stuff and this is what gives Anoprinted signs such a long life - the image is locked inside the hard anodised layer. Unlike surface printing or vinyl graphics, anoprinting cannot be picked or scraped off the surface. The anoprint is the surface and a very tough one at that. Ideal for full colour information signs, full colour memorials and name plates. The background colour choices for text are silver or gold. If photos are to be included silver is the best choice.

Signs inside public buildings such as schools, courts and shopping centres can have a hard life. Some people love to pick off vinyl, thinking that scraping the images off signs with keys and coins is a good way to pass the time. Soon the signs become unsightly and need to be replaced. Anoprinted signs have a totally smooth surface that is easy to clean - there is nothing that can be removed. This ensures a long life where other types of signage would suffer badly. You have a choice of either matt or metallic satin finishes, we can advise which will best suit your design.

Gold anoprinted is an easy-to-clean
alternative to brass.


In our digital age it is becoming increasingly popular to remember our loved ones with a full colour photo memorial plaque.  All we need is a good colour photograph along with your words of remembrance to create a beautiful plaque. These plaques look really classy when mounted on a wooden backing board. The plaques below are all on silver anoprinted, but gold is also a possibility. It looks like brass but no clean is needed!. The memorial plaques can be use alone or set into wood, slate, granite or corian. The pet memorial below was set into slate. For all outdoor locations a specialist laminate is applied to reduce fading or photos. The black text does not fade even in the stongest sunlight, but we do suggest that memorials with photos are placed away from the strongest sunlight to make them last as long as possible.

These plaques stand up to a lot more than just a bit of weather. For most outdoor signs we apply a specially developed vandal resistant lacquer. This gives extra protection to the surface and the high gloss finish helps to keep the sign clean without maintenance. The photo quality digital technology reproduces stunning graphics, full colour photographs with amazing depth, maps and illustrations that blend beautifully into the surface.
Traditionally these types of plaques would have to have been protected by laminating or a thick layer of plastic. With digital anoprinting you get crisp, clear graphics at the surface with excellent durability against rain, sun and vandalism.

Wooden Backing Boards

We can supply wooden backing boards if required. They are usually made in Oak. However we do have Sapele (similar to mahogany) and Iroko (similar to teak). If you want a specific timber, please state on the order form.

As a standard we treat the boarding boards with a tough satin varnish. However we can also treat oak boards with a black preservative which looks stunning. We can also paint the backing boards in other colours. White looks appropriate for some of the memorials.
