Product Description

What are bronze plaques used for

The impression is classic and elegant. The material is versatile and durable. Nothing strengthens your public image more that an attractive cast bronze memorial plaque, custom made, produced to order, by craftsmen committed to your satisfaction. Recognize a loved one or commemorate a historical place with earth friendly lead and mercury free bronze plaque.

How are bronze plaques made

A detailed shop drawing is submitted for your signed approval before production begins. Enter the text you require and we will set up a design and email you a proof. If you already have a design saved as an art file then enter its file name in the text box and email the art file to us.

Bronze plaques use virgin ingots that are melted down in an all-electric, pollution free furnace. The melted bronze is poured into a custom made mold, based on your approved artwork which has been designed and modified for excellent legibility. Once your bronze plaque has been cast by skilled craftsmen and has cooled down, it is shot blasted, degated and belt sanded in preparation of finishing. The cast metal plaque is turned over, drilled and tapped at the appropriate stud diameter for its stud mounting hardware used during your installation. The plaque is set up on a rack where it is coated with a two-part hardened acrylic polyurethane clear coat, then sent to an oven for baking. Your plaque is then laid out for careful quality inspection then seal-tight packaged so your plaque arrives mistake-free.

We can cast any custom logo or graphic onto the bronze plaque. Email us your custom artwork and the size you need and we will provide a price quote. We are not set up to do logo or design work.

How long does it take to make a bronze plaque

The cast bronze memorial plaques are ready to ship in eight business days after artwork approval. The detailed shop drawing takes 2-3 days to produce.

What type of material is used for bronze plaques

Bronze plaques are made from lead free alloy 22000 Navy G bronze. Smaller plaques are 1/4 inch thick and larger plaques are 5/16 inch thick.

What kind of finishes are on bronze plaques

Bronze plaques have raised letters on a textured background. The backgrounds are textured to make the plaque easier to read and reduces production loss due to imperfections. The backgrounds are painted with a baked enamel color. In the finishing process, the letter is bead-blasted to make it precise and smooth then stroke sanded to give it a natural satin finish.

How are bronze plaques mounted

Bronze plaques are typically mounted with fasteners. We provide a variety of mounting options such as a concealed stud on the back of the bronze plaque so you can glue it to a wall. We can also provide optional metal bolts, toggle bolts or wood screws. Bronze plaques can also be mounted on a 24 inch tall x 5/16 inch thick black anodized garden stake that is angled up so it can be easily viewed.

Lifetime guarantee

The bronze plaque comes with a lifetime warranty against fading, cracking, pitting or chipping. Made in the USA.

Best customer service ever
 By  from Pinellas Park, FL
"Our plaque was made last minute for a member of a missionary who died while preparing for the work. I had to place the order at the last minute. I explained the situation to a real person on the other end of the line and they not only told me they could get it done, but expressed sympathy for our loss. They followed through in every way and met our every need. Our plaque is now fixed on a home in Mexico honoring our fallen friend. Great product, but what makes this company stand out is the great customer service."

Highest quality and workmanship
 By  from Rockport, MA
"I bought this bronze memorial plaque in memory of a friend's loved one who died, to be placed on a bench in a public area of town. I was initially somewhat anxious as to what kind of quality to expect, as the cost was a fraction of what I had been quoted elsewhere. But I could not be more pleased with the outstanding quality and workmanship. It is an absolutely beautiful plaque. I subsequently have placed 3 more orders for these plaques - 2 for friends who were so impressed with its quality, and 1 for myself. In addition, there is a phone number to call for questions and advice, which was very helpful. I don't know why anyone would go any place else to purchase these plaques."
