Nature Trail Rubbing Posts
Nature Sign Design have created several sets of nature trail rubbing plaques. Rubbing posts are generally used along nature trails, and allow visitors to take rubbings at points of interest along the nature trail. Each post is different, and depicts an animal or plant associated with the area it is located in.
Rubbing posts can be incorporated into activity sheets or booklets. These encourage visitors to explore the nature trail and interact with each post along the way. They are a great way to keep children engaged on longer nature trails. The posts make the nature trail a game that the children are encouraged to complete by collecting or “rubbing” each post.
The plaques are hand cast from real English brass in the time honoured way, with deep embossed lettering. The raised text, borders and outside edge are hand polished and finished. The thickness of the plaque depends on its size but on average each plaque is approx. 4 to 5mm. We can make plaques in almost any size you wish, but we find that 4 x 4 inch square, attached to a 6 x 6 inch solid oak post is what most clients prefer. The posts can be routed with lettering and logos too!
We mount the brass rubbings onto the posts using anti vandal fittings and countersink them with glue to make them secure.
Nature Sign Design can design nature trail rubbing posts to meet your specific requirements. We can even make the rubbing posts from a design provided by you, or choose from the many we have on file.
We have an ever growing catalogue of images to choose from, but if there is something you require and do not see it, please let us know and we will design it for you free of charge.
