MPC’s Outdoor Sign System is the first landscape signage system to answer the need for permanent environmental resistance. The system is designed so that the information plate is predominant. Sign frames, stakes and hangers are engineered to provide maximum strength with minimal appearance.
Our sign system uses the proven durability of Metalphoto® coupled with discrete frames and hardware to identify flowers, plants, bushes, trees and other attractions in exterior or greenhouse settings. Metalphoto plates are imaged using a sans serif font for utmost readability. The frames are of sturdy ABS plastic in a standard black color with non-glare finish (other options available by request). Hardware options available for ground level identification, on tree trunks or branches, or bushes.
Metalphoto of Cincinnati offers nameplates in a variety of standard material options, including our proprietary Metalphoto® substrate. Metalphoto is photosensitive anodized aluminum, which features a silver and black photographic image that is embedded within the sapphire-hard anodic layer of the aluminum. This combination gives a Metalphoto part an outdoor life of over 20 years, and makes it extremely resistant to damage or degradation from environmental factors like abrasion, UV fading, harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and corrosion from saltwater exposure. The National Association of Graphic and Product Identification Manufacturers (GPI) Industry Standards and Practices Manual identifies Metalphoto as the most durable printed aluminum substrate available, and it has been trusted by industry, government and military organizations like Caterpillar, The US Navy, NASA, and Boeing for over 50 years. Metalphoto offers many unique features including:

As a member of the historical committee of the Homosassa Civic Club I was the first to contact you regarding our historical markers. Every one I spoke with was very nice and gave me all the information I needed. The markers we have received, in my estimation, are absolutely beautiful. Thank you very much.
