Examples: Exterior Recognition

When planning for recognition outside, in a garden or courtyard, there are many things to consider.  Weather and everyday elements can pose a threat to the pieces so materials and placement are sure to matter.  The trick is making sure the recognition is beautiful while being able to also stand the test of time.

Exterior Plaques

Most exterior pieces are engraved, etched, or sandblasted stainless steel.  Metal is the predominantly used material for its endurance, but there are cases where other graphic materials or fused glass can be suitable for outside.
