    There will be 30 of these, 18" x 18", raised letters (will be maroon) on a brushed metal 1/8" lasermax material. The fire escape route looks to be printed on white acrylic with a flatbed printer then set on top of the lasermax. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    We use a Vision for ADA/ engraving projects. Works pretty well.

    Might be a good application for a direct color systems printer, depends on the look you are going for. Is that a picture of an actual sign? It almost looks like a mockup to me. Not sure how you would cut out acrylic and have the details be durable enough (the arrows and exit words) to hold up. If you are looking to sub them out I think Johnson Plastics would probably quote them using a Direct Color printer to give a raised effect on the diagram and text.

    I have done this with a New Hermes is6000 and printing on clear, with tedious application

    Everything is raised, why not apply printed and cut vinyl?

    This is an image of one of the actual signs. I will check with Johnson Plastics. I did even think of them. Thanks for the heads up on this.

    HI

    You will find it's UV printed, with 3-6 overprints to make the lettering raised
