Beautiful, classic and timeless.... cast bronze is the "Rolls Royce" of plaques, the most suitable product for outdoors and definitely suitable indoor. Cast bronze features the raised gold border, emblems and letters and is designed to last forever.
The background colour on bronze plaques can be changed to suit your individual requirements - it will eventually breakdown (over many years and depending on the elements) and then the bronze will take on a "natural patina" effect - the borders, emblems and letters will always stand proud.
Cast plaques, letters and numbers are manufactured by Arrow Bronze in Melbourne they are number one manufacturer of aluminium and bronze plaques in Australia.
Modern and elegant cast aluminium is another product suitable for inside and outside and guaranteed for life. Cast aluminium features the raised silver border, emblems and letters and is designed to last forever.
The background colour on bronze plaques can be changed to suit your individual requirements it will eventually fade and oxidise to provide a lifetime protective covering the borders, emblems and letters will always stand proud
Anodised aluminium is a lightweight metal which can be used both inside and outside - it is engraved and can be paint filled with a colour to contrast the background if required.
Aluminium can be powder coated to change the background colour to meet your requirements. The borders, emblems and letters are engraved by removing the paint to display the silver below.
Suitable for outside use however as it is a "softer" material it is prone to scratching, vandalism and eventually the background paint will fade.
Brass is a "classic" product used both inside and outside (dependant on the quality of brass used). Brass can be engraved and paint filled any colour to meet your specific requirements
We personally recommend that brass is used both inside rather than outside as it is susceptible to vandalism and wear and tear including tarnishing, pitting and scratching. Ifused outside the in-filled paint will eventually come away.
Brass can be highly polished if required however it requires regular polishing to retain its shiny finish and can be problematic if not maintained
Glass plaques are ideally suited for the inside.
There are a number of finishes available which include vinyl lettering to back or front of the glass, sandblasting and then paint filling, reverse engraving and paint filling.
If you require colour to the background it can be printed or created using an Acrylic Composite Material (ACM).
Stainless steel is a modern durable look product which can be used both inside and outside (dependant on the grade of stainless steel used). Stainless steel can be reverse engraved or engraved and then paint filled (any colour) to meet your specific requirements
Marine grade 316 stainless steel is a durable silver metal ideal for use near the water; it is generally paint filled to contrast against the sliver - it will eventually lose the infilled paint (like all engraved products) and may eventually need to be repainted or replaced.
All of our engraved plaques are manufactured here in Australia by our team of expert engravers - they have been engraving our plaques for many years and the standard produced by them is excellent.
