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 plaque.

All our engraved plaques are of the highest quality.

Chemically etched engraved brass plaque.

Chemically Etched Steel and Brass Plaques
Ideal for small text, images with fine detail, photos or if several colours are needed. The main benefit of chemical etching over standard 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 engraved plaques unless there is a large amount of text.

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.

Entrance Signs with Engraved Corian Insert
These superior entrance signs are beautifully crafted. The posts and the inner panel are solid oak. These can be left looking like natural oak by treating with a tough satin finish varnish. Alternatively they can be painted. The paint is a very hard wearing polyurethane paint which is mixed with a hardener before spraying. A recess is carved into the oak and a corian plaque neatly inserted into it. The posts, panel and lettering look superb if all painted the same colour
