Lake Mills, WI (PressExposure) June 17, 2009 -- Lake Mills, Wisconsin June 16, 2009 Metal Facades Atlas Signs and Plaques
The CNC routing capabilities at Metal Facades can accommodate work five by ten feet and up to six inches thick. HDU, plywood, plastics, hardwood, sign material, acrylics, and fiberglass are some of the materials that can be accommodated. Full cutting and routing is available to most any non-ferrous metal including aluminum. With no job too big or too small, and upfront pricing, the accuracy of CNC table milling is now available to boat builders, hobbyists, aircraft restorers, museums, exhibit manufacturers, custom woodworkers, cabinet shops, and others who thought the cost of custom CNC routing was prohibited. When asked about what uses clients might find for her machinery, Owner Janey Freid said. "In addition to signage, we currently do custom artisan work on architectural elements, historic recreations, museum pieces, tradeshow exhibits, and much more. Our new router allows us to shape larger pieces and mill surfaces for large tabletops and counters. We have always specialized in the unusual. And now, having the machinery, software, and knowledge to do 3D routing increases the scope of work that we make available to our clients."
"We are not really a full-service sign shop," added Ms Freid "We have been more of an artistic custom metal coating applicator with great design ideas, specializing in unusual projects. As an example, we just completed a large project for the new U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in Washington D.C., transforming two 17 x 23 foot frames made from sign foam into bronze, and saving our clients dollars and weight. Recently however, Atlas Signs and Plaques developed an e-commerce website to provide easy online ordering and upfront pricing on custom metal coated signs and plaques for business, home, garden, and gifts. So we do create products that could be referred to as signs."
Both Atlas Signs and Plaques and Metal Facades are considered "artistic job shops" and have a steady stream of work pouring in to the studio from an ever-changing client base. "Custom work is what we do." added Ms Freid. "So it is not surprising that we expand, upgrade and utilize our capabilities to the utmost.
