Memorial Plaques

Bronze memorial plaques create a lasting tribute

Whether you want to memorize a person, mark the significance of a building or display facts about a park or public space, bronze memorial plaques are permanent, attractive and durable. Impact Signs can produce a plaque that includes a portrait, building sketches, detailed photo-relief images and even 3-D bas relief sculptures. Choose from a wide selection of finishes, background colors, border and edge styles, and textures.

Our bronze memorial plaques are available in a wide variety of options including:

  • Etched bronze memorial plaques. With a more modern feel, an etched commemorative plaque is perfect when there is a lot of intricate copy.
  • Cast bronze memorial plaques. This classic look has exposed, raised letters against a dark background for a sense or legacy and permanence.
  • Thicknesses from 1/4″ to 5/16″ solid bronze and deep casts from 1 to 1.5” deep for larger plaques.
  • Background textures including leatherette, sand, stipple and smooth
  • Borders including single line, double line, beveled edge, ivy and custom
  • Standard background colors black, brown, and durnaodic bronze or any custom-color match.
  • Verde patina background finish available for a distinct “greenish” look of natural aged bronze
  • Decorative rosettes and screws for mounting, or blind stud mounting
  • Finishes for raised letters including brushed satin, oxidized “oil rubbed”, and polished, dark oxidized and polished bronze
  • Photo options include bas relief portraits, photo relief portraits and etched photos.
  • Standard stud mounts, or screw mounting available for all walls and buildings
  • Post and stake mounts are also available

What rush production options are available on plaques?

We are happy to try to accommodate rush orders on custom office signs, if possible. Please give us the date you need the signage in hand, or installed, and we will try to accommodate. Also please fill out the quote form with your exact details before calling. Rush production fees will apply. Expedited, overnight and 2-day, shipping options are also available.

Please note that production time begins upon payment in full and an approved proof. If you approve it late or need changes, we can not guarantee the date we promised.

Will you design my plaque? Can I provide my own design?

Yes. We have some of the best, most creative plaque layout artists in the industry. If you provide the copy and images (if needed), we will design your plaque for you. Its best to provide a rough sketch, word document or PDF file of the copy you need. A deposit is required to begin the design process.

You can also provide your own art. We will need any art files in a vector AI, EPS, or PDF format, with all fonts converted to outlines. Please make sure to follow the minimum letter size rules.
