In fact wherever a classic, traditional and high class look is required an engraved brass plaque does the job.

Brass plaques are all made to order and to the size required. Brass engraved plaques can be supplied cut to an oval shape if required as well as the traditional rectangle/square however this can limit the layout of the text.

Brass plaques are traditionally ink filled in black however when a company logo is required a colour fill can be used however this has to balanced against the colour of the brass. (Not all colours show up well on a brass plaque).

Nearly any font can be used on a brass engraved plaque although when a large amount of text is required it is generally better to use a standard Arial or Helvetica font for legibility.

Where a logo or very small text is required the brass plaque will be chemically etched. This process enables very fine detail to be achieved. This process is also used for crests, coats of arms, school branding or industry body logos.

Brass is characterised by its versatile properties which are modified by changing the ratios of copper and zinc and with the addition of other elements such as tin and aluminium. For high quality plaques specific engraving brass CZ120 is used. (59% Cu + 39% Zn + 2% PB) with a small amount of lead.
