Signage / Engraving

We have been asked to produce various outdoor signs from stainless steel cut outs for GAA and Community Centres, to the prestigious blue and gold, Irish Harp, escutcheons for the Department of Foreign Affairs for Irish embassies worldwide. We have made historical interpretive plaques for a number of historical trails and have worked on extensive infographics/signage for the Marconi station, in Clifden for Galway County Council, along the Wild Atlantic Way.

Our engraving service includes rotary and laser engraving on brass, aluminium, acrylic, bronze and stainless steel.

Case Studies

Irish Harp Escutcheon for DFA

The cast aluminium blue and gold finished Irish Harp escutcheons for each Irish embassy, consulate or residence, have been fitted in some 80 locations worldwide, many with extreme climate differences. We have worked with the Athy Co-op Foundry for the castings and done all finishing, priming, masking, painting and bracketing in house. We have completed 3 batches of these since 2017.

Marconi for Galway County Council/ Failte Ireland

In 2016, we worked with Denis Byrne Architects to monitor the product design and produce all signage, sculptural hides and interpretive railings for both the Marconi industrial site and Alcock & Browne trans-Atlantic landing site at Derrygimlagh near Clifden. This project used weathering steels or Corten, Irish larch and stainless fixings though out. The graphic elements were seven-year vinyl's on exterior grade composite aluminium panels. This project won the RIAI Best Place Award in 2017 and was been nominated for the RIAI, Museum and Heritage International Award in 2018.

Battle of Ashbourne for Ashbourne Historical Society.

In 2016, we worked with Ashbourne Historical Society to produce a set of historically accurate battle boards which described the Battle of Ashbourne in 1916. These aluminium skinned boards were screen printed with illustrations and photographs and set into concrete at Rath Cross on the N2 north of Ashbourne on 70mm poles. This work followed on from other works outside of the library and A4 size plaques on various locations around the town of Ashbourne.
