What is a backing plate? Our signs come standard as one plate. With a backing plate, the wording is no longer see through. The wording stands out, which adds that extra WOW factor.
What is metal paint and what colours do you have available? Metal Paint is a high quality paint, designed as a rust guard and especially for metal. It may not be as long lasting as hardened enamel paint, but it will look fantastic. It may be subject to weathering in the future, so a simple re-application of metal paint will do the trick.
We have all standard paint colours available. Any colours of the rainbow, black, white and grey, as well as gold, silver and copper “Look” colours. Please just send us an email if you would like an abstract colour and we will let you know what we can create.
What is Hardened Enamel Paint and what colours are available? Hardened enamel paint is extremely strong and long-lasting paint. It should not need any maintenance. However, Australian climate is unpredictable and we cannot guarantee that the paint will last forever. If the colour is wearing, visit your local paint shop and I’m sure they will be able to assist you to add a touch up. Black, White and Grey are the colours that are available.
