Nameplates & Plaques
We now have a wider selection of techniques and materials than ever before, yet for many applications an engraved or acid etched metal plaque still provides the best solution. Maybe it’s a sense of tradition, or just that quality never goes out of style, but brass and stainless steel plaques are amongst the favourite forms of nameplate.
The warmth of solid brass on a hardwood plinth is welcoming and professional. Whilst brass will tarnish if left unpolished, repeated polishing will soften the design and achieve that mature look which says “established”. Don’t be too disappointed if you never see it though, it can take a long time.
Stainless steel, a bright silver surface metal ideal for contemporary designs is a crisp alternative to brass. It retains its fresh look and will not tarnish if left unpolished. To compliment the plaque, a selection of real wood, real stone or stone effect plinths can be used, to create a truly unique design.
