Etched & Cast Aluminum Plaques Let You Choose Between Contemporary or Classic Designs
Cast metal signs and markers are typically made from one of two metals: bronze or aluminum. The properties are practically the same, but each offers a very distinctive look. When the deep, honey-colored hue of cast bronze plaques isn’t what you had in mind, go for the refreshing silver tones found on cast aluminum plaques.
Cast Aluminum Plaques Come in Many Styles
Even with the dark-toned background, the silver lettering and images of a cast aluminum plaque lend a lighter feel. Working with our design team to use a wide range of textures and borders, plus a variety of background colors and specialty finishes, your finished plaque will be truly one of a kind.
Your options include:
- Cast aluminum thicknesses from 1/4″ to 3/8″
- Brushed or polished finishes
- 5 background colors or custom PMS colors to coordinate with interior or exterior schemes
- 8 border styles to add a professional touch
- 4 textures to bring visual interest to your aluminum plaque
- Photo options are also available – Photo Relief Images
Want to create a complete representation of a person or event? This breakthrough method makes it possible. Photo relief combines metal casting and photography. Insert a single image or create a collage for maximum impact. In sizes from 40″ to 64″.
Etched Aluminum Plaques
When a more contemporary appeal is what you’re going for, etched aluminum plaques are just the ticket. With their lighter, silver background and recessed dark letters, these plaques offer the reverse effect of traditional cast signs.
With etched aluminum plaques, you have the available options of:
- Thicknesses from 1/16″ to 1/4″
- Etched images on your plaque for greater appeal
- Satin brushed or brightly polished finishes
- Beveled edges for a stylish touch
In addition, both etched and cast aluminum plaques are:
- Perfect for hanging on interior or exterior doors or walls
- Guaranteed for life
- Photo option for etched plaques
Prefer the look of etched aluminum? These plaques can accommodate photos, too. Using a chemical process, your photos and other images are etched into the aluminum plate with a dot-pattern similar to what you’d find in newspaper halftones.
