We have all seen the metal plaques installed in local parks, trails, around memorials, and even embedded in the masonry around entrances of government buildings. This style of signage is known as "Cast Bronze Plaques."

Casting bronze is an art form that dates WAY back... to the Bronze Age actually. Commercial printing used to manually set each character as a "block" to make each "press plate" to print each page... this is the same process used in creating true cast bronze plaques.

Fortunately technology has greatly advanced the printing industry, allowing for greater control over typefaces and page layout. Unfortunately, the art of casting bronze can not be improved by technology.

Why do people still use casting for bronze plaques?

There is a traditional "look" to cast bronze. It suggests "this has been here a long time, and will be here forever." This is fine if purchased using tax dollars, but for the common project developer or home owner, the time frame (2-3 months) and expense is out of the question.

For these very reasons, we have developed material and finish combinations to offer our faux bronze plaque series.

While our faux bronze plaque series are not metal, the high density urethane material (HDU) is like metal in that it is a lifetime, maintenance free product. The only drawback - nothing is as hard as metal. HDU, like any other material (wood for example) is more susceptible to vandalism. Most of these projects are in high traffic public areas. Speak openly with your sales representative on the intended use. We have precautionary production measures to ward off vandals and protect your investment.

Unlimited Finish Options >

A great advantage to our faux bronze plaque series is the ability to control the final finish. We ave the ability to make your project look as if cast solid metal, your choice of metal, and even control the "age" appearance of the display.

The greatest advantage of our faux bronze plaque series is the costs and timeframe to receive your product. Typical turnaround time is 8-10 business days regardless of order size, and the costs are typically half the price of true cast bronze plaques.
