Welcome

Now in our 3rd generation of ownership in the U.P. of Michigan, Bauman Engraving & Signs wants to be your value-added one-stop shop for industrial identification items, custom signage products, graphics, and plaques and awards. We always strive to maintain a perfect balance of quality, service, and price for you, our customer. Our business is identification - it has been and always will be. It's what we do. We are picky and detail-oriented since most of what we manufacture is to be viewed at arm's length or closer, and that shows through on everything we manufacture and how we treat our customers.

What We Make

Business Signage and Graphics

Custom ADA Signs

Our ADA Braille signage is made with an eye for detail. We can handle almost any type of sign you may need for your facility: room ID signs, directories, regulatory signs, pictogram (restroom) signs, signs with changeable message sliders, nursing home resident signs with changeable photo and name area, hospital signs, school signage, custom sign frames, and more.

Facility Signage

We have expanded our offerings to include custom graphics and signage that is different from your typical ADA signs: From simple engraved nameplates, to sophisticated custom designed facility signage that includes directories, safety signage, window graphics, banners, photo luminescent stairwell signage, and more.

Industrial Nameplates and Labels

Engraved Nameplates

We manufacture not only plastic engraved nameplates, but also stainless steel and brass laser engraved valve and conduit tags and nameplates for your project. In addition to this we make plastic and aluminum legend plates, accurate plastic test switch nameplates, plastic mimic strips and symbols, and we also make in-house custom vinyl adhesive safety labels.

DuraBlack™ Nameplates

DuraBlack™ is laser markable aluminum for durable, on-demand marking for harsh operating environments. In side-by-side tests, DuraBlack out performs black anodized aluminum and laser markable acrylic tape in select applications. Because of its ability to perform across a range of challenging environments, DuraBlack meets several government, industrial and military specifications.

Graphic Overlays

For a clean, professional installation on equipment control panels nothing beats graphic overlays! Control Panel Overlays help the visual flow and organization of the equipment controls. The one-piece design drastically reduces assembly time of your control panel. Ideal for rugged environments where durability, visual communication, and long life are a concern. Either acrylic or textured polyester are materials we use. Surface or subsurface engraving, and subsurface digitally printed overlays are available options.

Control ID Products

Plastic, vinyl, aluminum, stainless steel, brass and polycarbonate are some of the raw materials we work with to produce some of the more specialized identification products our customers need. Custom push button nameplates, legend plates, escutcheons, and annunciator windows are no problem for us. With over 40 years combined experience in the controls identification industry, there's not much we have not seen!

Awards

Sports

As a value-added proposition for our customers, we have added awards to our lineup of products available. We can make custom digitally UV LED printed or laser engraved wood or acrylic plaques with logos and/or pictures, to simple small sports trophies or medals.
