Add a Photo or Image to a Cast Bronze Plaque Plaque for Greater Personalization
Both etched and cast memorial plaques give you the ability to add an image, logo or photo. With many technologically advanced processes combined with skilled artists and craftsmen, Impact Signs has the means to deliver plaques with photos that look like sketches, immensely detailed photos, and even 3-D sculptures. Images can be incorporated onto metal plaques using a variety of techniques, described below. The best method for your memorial plaque project depends on many factors, including your artwork / photo, your desired final appearance, and your budget. All images require a photograph or artwork of the subject or building.
Bas Relief Plaques – Portrait Photo
We start with your photo. A sculptor creates a clay mold of the portrait. Once you approve the clay mold, it is used to pour the bronze sculpture. The piece is then mechanically assembled to your overall plaque. Size ranges from 9″-12″ and costs between $2100 to $2750 depending on the size and complexity. Bas Relief portraits are great for outdoor bronze memorial plaques with a bust. Results are a timeless investment.
Photo Relief Bronze Plaques
Photo Relief Bronze Plaques can literally tell a story in a bronze image. An entire photo montage or scenery can be incorporated, including background image and portrait. It can be the entire background of the plaque, or a portion. Alternatively, the photo can be done in a portrait style with a raised border. Using innovative technology and custom craftsmanship, we etch the relief, and use a specialized paint process to achieve the texture and definition. Photo Relief can be done on bronze and aluminum plaques. The results are striking.
Etched Photo Plaques
Ethced photos can be assembled or integral to your bronze, brass, or stainless steel plaque. This etching process utilizes a halftone dot pattern, kind of resembling a newspaper photo. The etched and recessed dots are filled with paint to contrast with the satin bronze background. Price ranges from $300-$700
Etched Bronze Plaques
Etched Bronze Plaques start with a piece of satin brushed bronze, and the lettering and logo is acid etched (recessed) into the plaque. Impact! is the leader in etched plaques in the nation. Many have tried, but can’t achieve the precision, and detail our craftsman can in the etching process. We can achieve very fine lettering and detail in our etching process through our refined and innovative technique. Etched bronze plaques range in thickness from 1/16″ thick to 1/4″ thick.
