FINISH: Brushed aluminum.
Plaque faces are stroke-sanded with baked enamel background before being clear coated and oven baked with a two part hardened acrylic polyurethane. Generally, these are used for memorials, dedication plaques, or signage. This finish is not recommended for coastal areas. Raised copy and border is in brushed aluminum. If you want a bronze-like gold color, please send an email to [email protected] for a quote.


If you already know the size of plaque you want, simply select that size. If you haven't decided on a size, a general guideline is:

Count the number of letters and spaces and divide by 4. This will give you a typical plaque size in square inches. For example, 400 letters and spaces divided by 4 is 100 square inches. So a 10" x 10" plaque would work. We offer custom sizes as well. 

TEXT: (See Memorial Text Suggestions or our other plaques for text ideas.)
A maximum of 1200 characters can be placed on the Standard Aluminum plaque.

Several font styles are available. See Details tab for samples. The minimum letter size is 1/4" if the text is in ALL CAPS or 3/8" size if the text is in Upper and lower case. The larger the plaque, the larger the letters. The minimum size ensures that your plaque will be legible.

BORDERS: Border Styles

Custom Aluminum Plaque
We are a non-profit and needed plaques for all of our rooms. We ordered plaques that had the room name, donor name and date. And, for other rooms, we could just have a room name plaque. An ideal solution and they are extremely nice. We wanted quality plaques that would show our appreciation to the donors. So, the plaques look alike, look custom and we were able to vary the size depending upon the amount of text.
