Norwegian term or phrase: eskelokk
An 'eskelokk' appears to be a specific type of sign (i.e., certain materials, thickness, finish) that you can commission. What is its equivalent in English?

It appears that eskelokk signs are lust that little bit more elaborate than simple 2D signs, in having an ouside bend making it 3-dimensional in shape - not unlike the box lid itself.

Thanks Per - as is so often the case in the advertising industry, it's the stupid/literal translation that is so often right.
