What is signage ?

Signage covers all information means used to guide people in a given place (public or private space: Museum, library, hotel ...) or provide specific information (manufacturer's plates on equipment, bar codes, notices..). It is also possible to distinguish indoor signage from outdoor signage.

Signage should combine efficiency and aesthetic look and can be adapted to company brand image in professional applications.

With a large range of products, we can meet a multitude of applications requiring:

  - indoor or outdoor use
  - military / industrial / civil  related specifications
  - color or  contrasted black results  (Qr code, bar code)
  - resistance  in harsh environments : corrosion, chemicals, high temperature, solvents ...
  - immediate and fast production on demand
  - unit or small series production,  with variable elements
  - 3D domed lettering, creating a magnifying effect.
