Sign fabrication question

Hi guys

I need a little help with a sign, i've not done one of these before so not sure what the name for it would be (if it has a name).

I've attached an image to show what i want but it's just a simple 800mm x 1000mm sign that has a chrome edge/border which will be 50mm and then a digital print that fit's inside the chrome edge/border and will be screwed to a brick wall

If i'm not describing it well, hopefully the image will help.

Also where could i get this made up?

Thanks

Daniel, looking at the drawing that would be called a sign tray, the chrome edge bits are known as returns. There is a tutorial on the forum that shows you how you can manufacture one yourself which might be worth you watching. Can't help with where to buy from sorry.
Installation wise, normally fitted to a couple of ally angle rails which are fitted to the wall first.

Cherwell Sign Supplies (01280 840297) make a range of blanks call "Navigator" which includes wall signs with brushed aluminium returns and alubond faces. returns only come in 35mm depth though.
