Stainless Steel Plaques

Custom stainless steel plaques are both modern and classic

Custom etched plaques from Impact Signs are perfect for museum or donor recognition, project and building dedications and exterior logo signs. Our durable stainless steel signs are extremely precise and our etching process accommodates even the smallest text and half-tone photographs.

Our standard etching depth is approximately .020″ and half-tone images are etched to approximately .010″ to maintain image precision. All our stainless steel plaques are backed by a lifetime guarantee.

Our stainless steel plaques are available in a wide variety of options including:

  • Thicknesses of 1/16″ , ⅛, 3/16, 1/4″
  • Custom shapes available
  • Half-tone etched photographs, line art or etched logos to add a personal touch
  • Brushed stainless steel and high polished finishes
  • Standard or custom paint-filled color for recessed etched lettering
  • Mounting options for virtually any surface including brick, concrete and drywall using our included stud mounting hardware
  • Choice of standard alloy C304 or optional alloy C316, which provides additional corrosion and tarnishing resistance for marine and other harsh environments (additional costs apply)
  • Thin etched stainless plaques can be mounted to a glass panel for a unique interior plaque.

FAQs for Stainless Steel Plaques

Why should I use Alloy 316 stainless steel in a marine or coastal environment?

Alloy 316 stainless steel is made to last longer in marine environments. It does cost more, but will be a worthwhile investment. Read more about marine grade alloy 316 here (link to our marine grade blog post)
