A Professional Partner

Our team is as committed as you are making your ideas, tangible. Each project is started in an efficient and timely manner involving you every step of the way. There isn’t a question that cannot be asked, and each step in the process is communicated creating a project that you’ll be proud of.

Metal At It's Finest

With decades of experience, our trained professionals work extremely hard to pull off the inevitable. There isn’t a project too large, or small that we haven’t pulled off. The impeccable eye for detail and efficiently creates metal art-forms that last a lifetime.

Timeless Artwork

With our help, it is now possible to have a photograph or any digital design any size to last a lifetime. Our surfaces are easy to clean, stay vibrant, are hard to damage or bend. Even better, each piece is easy to mount or frame.

Specialty Equipment Parts

Have you ever wondered how the gauges in an airplane cockpit are all perfectly in place and aligned? Or, how the circular measuring gauges on a handsaw come to fruition? Photometals is proud to say we have been successfully applying an extensive portfolio of projects like this, since 1982, in our aerospace and industrial industries. Each cut is precise, and sized accurately to fit any space or machine.

Customize Your Biggest Idea

Is it a metal business card you’d like, a large scale family photo, an oversized piece of office decor or customized nameplates for your next big event that you’d like to showoff? The possibilities are endless and we’re here to bring that idea to life.

Equipment Identifiers

Most high level pieces of equipment require an identification tag or label by law. We’ve produced millions! Photometals offers design and manufacturing services in industrial nameplates, thin metal parts and architectural signage, which include the new ADA relief signage required by Federal law in all public buildings.
