Plaques > Etchings

Etched plaques are available in several different materials, including bronze, stainless steel, zinc, and copper. Adding an etched portrait gives your project that personal touch that sets it apart from other plaques. Standard thickness for an etching being added to a plaque is 1/16”. However, if you’re considering having your entire design etched instead of cast, we would recommend 1/8" to 1/4" thick material for extra durability and ease of mounting. The etching process provides for greater detail and smaller text, as compared to a bronze casting, and still provides a classic beauty to the finished product.
