Do you want to mark someone’s promotion or congratulate them? Perhaps you just want to show employee appreciation. Engraved plaques are an ideal way to do this in business and personal use.

Materials Used for Engraved Plaques

Engraved plaques can be made of many types of metal, from brass to steel. Other options include acrylic, plastic, and crystal.  However, your choice of material will be based on where it sits. A plaque that will sit outside should be able to weather the elements. However, a plaque that will sit inside has more options. Ultimately, your choice of plaque material will also depend on the event you are celebrating. Your individual needs and vision will factor in as well.

Artistic Markers and Precise Perfection

Chemical etching, known as chemical milling, is a process dating to the Middle Ages. In this, the precise details of complicated artwork are so as etched onto our many metal surfaces for engraving plaques. However, we use baths of etching chemicals, which we regulate by temperature, to reshape the plaque metals into the desired artful casts.

This part of the process, combined with our precision as well as cast tooled plaques. This provides an almost exact replica of the actual artwork itself. The quality is simply so much astounding. Seeing is believing with the beautiful mix of exceptionally detailed etching.

For the Indoors: Inside Plaques

Our inside plaques contribute to the interior design of your home as pieces of artwork. They contribute to the winner’s sense of self-esteem and pride, so as creating a feel-good aura in the home.

Engraved Plaques for Picture Frames

This product is perfect for displaying a picture or digital photograph. However, an etched photograph is transferable with halftone images, an image made up of freestanding dots. From a distance, the dots blur together & so as of looks like the lines and shapes of the photograph or image. This process provides a permanent solution, which captures an image for a lifetime. Our engraved plaques for picture frames can create permanent photographs of the important people in your professional as well as personal life.

Engraved Plaques for Frames and Awards

Engraved plaques with photos do not only have pictures as artwork which can be etched onto an engraved plaque for frames. Awards and also the recognition are captured with a plaque of brass, bronze, copper or of steel. However, we engrave any artwork or sayings onto metals as thin as 1/16’ thick. We laser engrave aluminum. We can also use polished black granite to create unique frames.

Nonstop Signs etch personalized plaques for those worthy of recognition so as for all occasions. We offer plaques for awards, for employees, sports participants, students for academic achievements, and also for anyone else for which you would like to recognize for special accomplishments. We work with you to give you so exactly what you need.

Engraved Plaques for Trophies and Appreciation

Our engraved plaques for trophies can be created with metals or with flexible sheet stock. However, Duets Contours is a fairly new surface with a burst of rainbow colors to add to trophies and other plaques. This colorful addition adds pop to sports trophies for young adults.

Appreciation plaques show thanks for all kinds of life events. Be it a job anniversary, educational milestone, or personal milestone, these markers come in all shapes as well as sizes. And we also help you memorialize what you want, as so how you want.

Engraved Aluminum, Brass and Crystal Plaques

For a quicker option, our aluminum plaques are laser engraved rather than chemically etched. This involves a laser beam which burns off the surface of the metal to expose the layer underneath. The process is incredibly easy. These aluminum pieces are useful for any address, frame, bench, door, desk, trophy or so for other types of products.

Brass is another option that is great for downtown offices, awards or the military. Brass has a so high polished look which exudes a regal, stately or professional aura. You can also find them in museums as well as government offices as a tasteful option.

Final crystal is a perfect option for weddings, or for certain types of employee recognition programs. Engraved crystal plaques have a look as well as timeless elegance all of their own.

Engraved Door and Desk Plaques

The Engraved door and desk plaques announce the name, address and/or room number of the inhabitant, while the desk option typically announces the name of the person who sits at that desk. Both are perfect ways to present professionalism and authority in an office setting.

Engraved Plaques for Display Cases

You are displaying military awards, sports trophies or other professional awards, we can help you design perfectly engraved plaques for display cases. After you have a display case or shadow box, simply let us advise you of the type of metal or colors and lettering that would complement the piece of furniture to maximize the artistic effect of the display.

Engraved Graduation Plaques

Engraved graduation plaques are guided only by your imagination. You can capture the spirit and essence of your graduate by your choice of metals. You may consider aluminum alloy, brass, bronze, copper or stainless steel or acrylic, crystal or flexible engraving sheets for their pop of color. We capture details by your choice of engraving technique cast, precision-tooled or etched.

For the Outdoors: Exterior Engraved Plaques

Our exterior engraved plaques stand the test of time. The finishes we use brass, bronze, copper, stainless steel, and even our paints all passed our rigid and uncompromising in-house laboratory testing standards. These tests included hours of exposure to moisture and humidity, heat cycles, ultraviolet light, and salt fog. We know that our custom engraved plaques for awards, appreciation, outdoor benches, urns, and headstones will stay fit for a lifetime.

Engraved Plaques for Headstones and Cremation Urns

An engraved plaque for a headstone of an outdoor cast metal will help your loved one’s memory live on forever. Designing a plaque for a headstone is just as important as the choice of the headstone material itself. You should think about what type of orientation flat or upright you deem proper for the person you are memorializing.

Engraved plaques for cremation urns have memorial nameplates etched with the names of those loved ones who have passed on. These may come along with any other information family members, friends or colleagues deem appropriate. This memorialization etches the memory into the minds of everyone. However, these options for urns sometimes highlight special qualities befitting of the loved one. Brass, bronze, copper, and stainless-steel alloys can also be etched with names, dates, sayings and other heartfelt thoughts and wishes. Laser engraved anodized aluminum is also available.

You may choose recessed or raised lettering, and even also the line art. Engraved plaques for urns help to memorialize your loved ones in a manner befitting and reminiscent of the person.
