PLAQUE DESIGN OPTIONS
Below are some of the standard border styles, colors and mounting options available. Please keep in mind that plaques can be almost any size and shape — you are not limited to certain dimensions or proportions, and there is generally no additional charge for odd shapes or measurements.
There are some more "traditional" plaque color combinations, but changing background colors can certainly make a plaque more interesting for certain situations and locations. Adding logos or graphics is also possible.
I'm happy to make suggestions if you're not sure!
The traditional plaque material — reddish gold raised letters & border
Silver raised letters and border, lighter in weight, and can cost 10% to 30% less than bronze, depending on overall plaque size.
Plaque Production Methods
This is the most cost-effective method of production. The background of plaque is machined from a solid slab of bronze or aluminum, leaving the raised letters and border. The depth of plaque is usually 1/4" or 5/16", depending on material and overall plaque dimensions
In the traditional plaque-making method, a mold is crafted, and the plaque is cast in molten bronze or aluminum. Instead of flat, the back of the plaque is recessed, allowing it to be much deeper without the added material (and weight) of a thick solid slab. The plaque can be made virtually any depth from 3/8" for smaller plaques up to 1½" for very large plaques.
