Street name plates:
Die pressed, printed, reflective and recycled

We now offer the widest range of die-pressed sign products within the UK.
Following a recent acquisition, die-pressed (embossed) and polycarbonate street nameplates are manufactured in-house, using traditional and modern technologies, by a team of sign professionals benefiting from over 80 years of experience.

Signs are manufactured to meet adopted standards, with bespoke designed plates also available.

Die pressed signs

Standard Signs recently acquired one of the UK’s leading providers of die-pressed plates to the housing, rail, civils, and defence industries, and direct manufacturer of street nameplates to Local Authorities, Building Contractors and the Sign Trade.

Traditional die-pressed street nameplates are virtually indestructible. Manufactured in aluminium, the lettering is embossed into the metal to give a raised 3d effect.

The plates are stove enamelled to colour and vanguard over lacquered for additional protection.

Die-pressed signs are available in Kindersley and MOT, in uppercase only.

We are now one of the last die-press signmakers in the UK, and proud to employ the two most experienced die-pressers in the country. We will continue to invest in die-pressed signage, with current trainees focussed on this traditional manufacturing skill.

Street nameplates

Our street nameplates have a polycarbonate face which is laminated to a sturdy aluminium backplate. 

The text is applied to the back of the sign face and is encapsulated within the sign. This is a highly vandal-resistant street sign.

Polycarbonate is an impact-resistant, clear-as-glass material. The text applied to the rear may be screen printed or applied plot-cut cast vinyl.

This method allows any style/font to be used, making it ideal for private schemes looking for a more contemporary or unusual design. We can also include crests, logos and symbols.
