Plaque Photo Gallery
Plaques can be produced in any size. Each is custom made according to your requirements with various
border styles, letter sizes and styles, finishes and mounting methods.
Three dimensional or flat portraits may be included. Browse these examples and then let one of our designers
assist you. There is virtually no limit except for budget and imagination.
We are frequently asked about the differences in application
(use) of bronze vs. aluminum for plaques. Bronze (the gold
colored metal) is the material historically associated
with these type of products.
It lasts forever. If it is ordered without a 'clear coat', then the
bronze will gain the familiar 'greenish / bluish' color associated
with older plaques. Aluminum (the silver metal) on the
other hand has a more modern look especially when combined with a black background. By
its very nature, aluminum will not last as long as bronze.
In fact, if left without a 'clear coat', unlike the bronze
that improves in looks, aluminum will develop the familiar
white oxidation known as filiform corrosion.
Some of our customers have installed their bronze plaque
under the ocean on reefs to memorialize diving friends. They
tell us that they take annual trips to the site and use a
kitchen 'scrubbie pad' to refinish the plaque. It only improves.
Aluminum, on the other hand, would deteriorate within the
first year. We do not sell aluminum plaques for
use near salt water.
