Custom Metal Plaques and more!
Bronze, Brass, Aluminum, Stainless Steel and Imaged Plaques.
Metal plaques are the perfect product when your signage needs permanency, class, durability and architectural depth. Metal plaques encompass elegant detail and dimension for a variety of uses from address plaques to memorial plaques to ADA plaques (way-finding plaques) to seals or historical plaques and so much more. Custom plaques can be created to include simple text, logos, emblems or portraits in either a cast metal plaque or etched plague (precision tooled) format to fit your metal plaque needs.
From professional offices to government buildings and universities metal plaques can be used to commemorate, identify, inform, dedicate and enhance any indoor or outdoor space through beautifully crafted signage. Custom metal plaques are created through utilizing a range of the purest, lead-free alloy metals (Bronze, Brass, Aluminum, Stainless Steel and Copper) and finishing options (polished finishes, custom borders, oxidization, patina's, painted faces and much more.)
Both cast metal plaques and etched metal plaques also have portrait and image options that include bas relief, flat relief, photo relief, portrait etching and giclee prints (color photos) on metal. This particular metal plaque feature furthers the ability to truly customize your plaque with pictures of places, people and things. Pictures are worth a thousand words...so if you have a picture that you need immortalized on your custom metal plaque, just supply the picture or series of pictures, to create a sturdy metal plaque that embodies a visual story as well.
CAST METAL PLAQUES: This style of custom metal plaques is created by utilizing a 6,000-year-old casting process that produces very solid and sturdy metal plaques that stand the test of time. Cast metal plaques begin with a mold made from sand or clay, that is specifically crafted to the design of the plaque, before molten aluminum or bronze is poured into the cast and allowed to cool and solidify. Cast metal plaques offer great depth and dimension and are guaranteed for life with sizes up to 96 inches and lettering that is 1/4 inch or taller. Great for multiple castings for identical plaques. (Thin gauge metals also available for low cost options.)
ETCHED METAL PLAQUES: Creating etched metal plaques is a more cost-effective, time efficient and Eco-friendly process that involves precision tooling. Etched metal plaques can be fashioned from bronze, brass, stainless steel and copper that can included detailed letters, logos, borders and braille. Etched metal signs can be fabricated in any size (including fractional sizes) up to 40" x 84" with lettering down to 1/4". With recessed or raised graphics, and line art and custom image options, etched metal plaques offer a high-speed machining process that affords a quicker production time with with crisp and clean detailing at a great price. (Thin gauge 1/8" metal plaques are also available for smaller signs up to 24" x 24".)
PHOTO IMAGE PLAQUES: Creating a custom plaque with a photo image is easily attained in a variety of different styles and looks. Bas relief, which is a cast metal plaque portrait option, uses a clay model that is mechanically attached to bronze or aluminum cast metal plaques. PhotoRelief fuses casting and photography creating a picture plaque that is simple yet elegant. Photo image plaques can also achieve an etched portrait on metal, have ceramic metal inserts, a giclee print or be laser engraved. The possibilities are practically endless
