The differences between bronze plaque and engraved plaques
bronze plaques (such as the cast bronze nameplate shown on
the left) are created from molten bronze alloy and are solid
bronze - typically 3/8" to 5/8" thick. They
are used for both indoor and outdoor applications and last
forever. There are two levels to the plaque - raised
and background. In this example, the text is raised
and the background is not. A bronze plaque around the
size of a standard sheet of paper will co
st around $500 (text
only) and hold about 160 characters.
An engraved plaque is used for indoor applications and is
typically prersented to a recipient as an award. An engraved plaque around the size of a standard sheet
of paper is cost effective and can hold over 350 characters.
When a group of individuals are honored in the setting of
a bronze plaque, these engraved plaques can be made to duplicate
the text and graphics on the bronze plaque and be presented
to each individual as a 'take home' award.
