The wording is engraved carefully then a paint filler takes over to produce an engraved sign that will last many years exposed to the elements (if placed outside). Beautiful brass plaques like this one just need polishing every couple of months.
As you can see on the image, there are icons of poppies on it, to reflect the military nature of this plaque; again, produced by the same method, engraved directly into the brass plaque.
Isn’t that a beautiful sign? This engraving is a solid piece of dark grey slate, which has been carefully engraved and paint-filled with a rich silver colour to leave us with this truly stunning engraved sign.
Slate is not a material that is widely used for signs, which is a great pity since it has such a wonderful appearance. It is a more expensive material, certainly, but it can be used in many situations where aluminium signs are now used.
Although brass plaques are something that we do a lot of, this one stands out because of the additional colours. The engraving we normally do is lettering which we paint-fill black, but here there was some extra additions in the form of the flower.
The plaques that we do, no matter what material we create them from be it brass, aluminium, stainless steel etc., are usually fitted to a wooden plinth. Customers get a choice of material for the plinth from a variety of woods.
They look good when mounted on a wall and last for many years.
A good picture of one of the engraving machines at work, engraving a brass plaque. The technology has come a long way but still has a significant human element in the programming aspect and setting the machines up and so on.
There are several examples of the engraved plaques on this site, and we work with a variety of materials, depending on the client and on the job.
