Types of Plaques

Bronze Plaques

Our plaques are available in almost any size. The best size comfortably fits your mounting space and is proportional to you inscription. Our experienced designers consider these details when designing your plaque, allowing for a balanced inscription on an appropriately sized plaque. By using the latest computer aided design techniques, all of your lettering will be perfectly straight and level, your graphics will be crisp and clean, and your final casting will be the same as the art you proofed on paper.

Commemorative Plaques

To honor a person, place, or event, nothing displays esteem and noteworthiness more permanently than an imperishable bronze or aluminum plaque. When your words are cast in metal, they are presented with a completely new meaning and importance. It is the ultimate tribute for someone with unique, unforgettable qualities, and they will forever be displayed for future generations to admire and discover.

Dedication Plaques

The cast metal plaque, whether of bronze or aluminum, is the discerning choice for dedicating memorials, parks, historic sites, or new buildings. They truly embody a permanent pride of achievement and commitment to excellence. Certain buildings deserve to be remembered. It may be because of their architecture, historical significance, or even their distinctive character and uncommon charm. In all cases, they are worthy of only the finest cast metals. A cast metal plaque will be the “final touch” that brings it all together and provides the critical information that people will enjoy learning.

Identification and Signage

Any image conscious professional, business, or organization will benefit from the striking appearance of bronze. It conveys a sense of permanency and reinforces an established, solid image. On your grounds, on your building, in a corridor, or on your desk, a bronze sign tells the world who you are with distinction, and will be worth your investment with its low maintenance costs and high durability. Virtually any logo or graphic can be reproduced in bronze. There are some limitations when it comes to very small graphics or text, but the majority of corporate logos and typestyles can be reproduced. Today’s manufacturing methods allow a tremendous freedom of design. For a price quote, or more information on our bronze signs, please email us or contact us at one of our locations.
