Metalphoto Plaques

Using the Metalphoto® process, Pella Engraving & Sign Company produces highly durable, photosensitive anodized aluminum plaques. This material resists weathering, fading, and abrasion from UV rays, heat, salt spray, and cleaning products. These plaques are perfect for indoor and outdoor use, including memorial plaques, donor recognition plaques, and industrial nameplates and serial or ID tags.
