Cast Plaque Borders & Bevels
Cast and precision-tooled plaques offer a variety of standard border options at no additional cost. The most important considerations when deciding on a border are the overall size of the plaque and the location where it will be displayed. The Single Line border is the most popular choice due to its simplicity and elegance. We will provide guidance and best practices when discussing your order prior to production.
Cast Plaque Background Textures
The nature of the cast plaque production process means that the background will have an elemental texture rather than simply having a smooth finish. Choose a style that fits in with the surroundings where the plaque will be displayed, or simply go for the style that strikes your fancy. Traditionally, the Leathette texture is the most popular choice.
Cast Plaque Background Colors
The inset background of the cast plaque will be painted to contrast with with raised, polished metal areas. Traditionally, the background is a dark and earthy tone that compliments the raised elements. These are the standard background colors.
Cast Plaque Clear Coatings
The finished product includes a clear protective coating that helps preserve the painted background and polished metal by protecting it against the elements. The Satin clear coat is standard for most applications, while Gloss is preferred for polished plaques.
