Custom cast plaques in bronze, aluminum, or brass are lasting tributes, and tasteful and appropriate forms of permanent recognition, dedication or event commemoration. A sand cast plaque’s permanence underscores the contributions and significant acts of an individual or a group. Cast metal plaques also serve for great architectural signage or landscape marking as they can weather the elements.
You should consider ordering a cast plaque if your plaque order requires:
- Integral sculpting and background textures
- Greater depth and dimension
- Sizes up to 96” circular diameter
- Letters 1/4” or taller
- Higher level of recycled content
- Multiple castings of identical plaques
- Greater selection of border styles and mounting options
Etched Plaques are the go-to choice for plaques that require precise detail for fine text, images or other intricate custom artwork. Chemical etching allows transferring virtually any design onto brass, bronze, copper or stainless steel. Etched plaques are a lower-cost alternative to cast plaques, while still delivering a high-end look. Four gauges of metal for your etched plaque are available: 1/16”, 1/8”, 3/16” and 1/4”. Artwork can be either raised or recessed, and backgrounds can be painted any single color or combination of colors. Brushed finish is standard, but polished finish is available on recessed copy plaques.
