Cast & Architectural Plaques
Whether your plaques are Cast, Architectural, Etched, or those requiring ADA specifications,
we can create the marker, seal or plaque you need in just a few days.
While many plaque manufacturers need 4 to 6 weeks to deliver your plaque,
we can ship your plaque in just 8 working days after approval of your artwork
all with NO extra charges and NO hidden fees.
We use a variety of methods to manufacture your plaque
all using virgin materials of the purest alloys.
Whether you require lead and mercury free bronze, high-grade aluminum,
lead-free brass or #304 or even #316 stainless steel.
Recognize someone for a job well done, a retirement, winning an award,
memorialize a loved one or commemorate a historic place.
Below are some of the most common type styles
Bas Relief. We start with a photograph.
Although we can use almost any quality photograph,
the better the image the better the modeling effort.
Remember, the finished image will be an artist's interpretation of this photograph.
An image of the clay model is sent to you via email for your comments or approval.
When approved, the clay model is used for the bronze and aluminum casting process.
The bas relief is mechanically attached to the plaque background.
Standard overall height of 6" to 12" with a finished depth of 3/4" to 1".
(6 week lead time.)
Etched. The etching process allows you to forever replicate
line drawing or complex artwork.
This method utilizes a halftone dot pattern made from a 50-line screen.
Halftone portraits resemble newspaper photographs, and have visible dot patterns.
The etched, recessed dots are black ink filled to contrast with the satin finished background.
The best photographs for halftone etched portraits have high contrast tones
with bright white areas, dense black areas and minimal grey tones.
Photos that are monotone or have muted colors will produce poor halftone etchings.
Halftone etchings are available in stainless steel, bronze, brass & copper.
