Materials for Engraving

When thinking about engraved plaques one tends to think of brass. Whilst this is a fantastic material for plaques and signs, it does need regular polishing. In our engraving workshop at The Sign Maker we have many other materials we are able to use for engraved plaques and signs.  The large corian sign to the right is a good example of a maintenance free engraved sign.

Laser Engraved Brass
One usually expects to see a brass plaque which is deep engraved and painted. However there are times when small text or images with fine detail are required. This is where the latest technologies of the laser comes into play. Although not engraved into the metal the lettering is just as permanent and actually tougher than the metal beneath.

Anodisal Aluminium - Black, Blue, Red Green, Gold
The anodisal aluminium has a tough baked gloss finish. The letters are engraved through this finish to show the silver / white surface beneath. As we use a laser for this process the lettering can be very small if it is required. We can also use very detailed images including line drawings and even good quality photos.


Stone-Like Corian Plaques
A modern material with a cold stone like finish. It is very durable, fade proof and virtually maintenance free. It comes in a variety of stone finishes including slate and in two thickness. It also has the advantage of being able to engrave and paint-fill, smaller letters than you can with brass or laminate. Letters can be paint filled with black, white, silver, gold or blue.


Chemically Etched Engraving

Chemically Etched Steel, Bronze and Brass
Ideal for small text, images with fine detail or if several colours are needed. The main benefit of chemical etching over engraving is no mechanical stress to the material and no cutter marks as the unwanted material is removed by chemicals leaving clear sharp flat surface detail. Not as cost effective for small signs unless there is a large amount of text.


aluminium nameplate

Aluminium Nameplate
The silver anodised aluminium is ideal for the more contemporary nameplate and has the advantage of being tarnish free. It can be engraved in a range of fonts looks very stylish if mounted on a wooden backing board. The letters are best in-filled with black or blue.
