Making Signs

Using a graphics program the Design, or Artwork, is created on the computer. It is then relayed to the plotter for engraving using a spinning cutting tool, or to the laser to transfer it to the plate. Artwork can be supplied by the customer or created and designed by K-JAM to customer specifications. Engraving can be filled with any colour in-fill required or left with the machine cut finish.


Materials most commonly used for engraving include: Laminated Vinyl, Stainless Steel and Aluminium. Brass is available for limited applications only.

Some of the products K-JAM has produced include Architectual Signs, Braille Signs, Directional Signs, Cut-out Lettering, Interior & Exterior Signs, House/Building Signs, Name Badge, Plaques etc

From 1st May 2011 new building codes became effective (NNC BCA 2011) along with the new Disability (Access to Premises-Buildings) Standards 2010. Any new building open to the public, or existing buildings undergoing significant renovation, after this date, will be required to comply with these new standards. K-JAM has released its new 900 series Braille to comply with the new specifications, implemented by the new ‘Premises Standard’.
