Dedicate, honor or memorialize with custom-made etched and metal plaques
Cast metal plaques and etched plaques like you’ll find at Signs By Tomorrow® make quite an impression. And, this makes them ideal for awards, dedications, historic place markers and memorials, among countless other uses. We offer a complete selection of metal plaques in materials from A (aluminum) to Z (zinc)!
Most cast metal types usually feature raised lettering and graphics. Our etched metal plaques display recessed logos or text. Alternately, through a style known as "bas-relief," a shape such as a portrait can be created so that it appears to stand out against a flat surface on your cast metal plaque.
You’ll enjoy many individualization options with our metal plaque selections. We can create custom designs, shapes and sizes including your logo, company name, message, graphics and even photography. Other choices for our one-of-a-kind cast metal plaques include borders, finishes and edges, not to mention custom mounting on wood or other materials.
Make a great impression in any number of ways
Attractive and affordable, custom indoor plaques and custom outdoor plaques from Signs By Tomorrow gain wide application. Use them as:
ADA Signs: This signage helps you adhere to Americans with Disabilities Act regulations. We can craft ADA signs in cast aluminum, bronze or zinc in designs to complement your company’s branding or accent your facility’s décor.
Address plaques: Our durable cast metal address plaques are a distinctive way to identify a location and an impressive way to welcome visitors as they approach your door.
Dedication plaques: Few displays of gratitude or acknowledgments of accomplishment are more impressive (or permanent!) than one of our cast metal or engraved dedication plaques.
Donor plaques: Do you go with a single plaque or several plaques to create an attention-getting “donor wall?” With either option, our donor plaques in cast metal or engraved metal will help you recognize the contributions of others.
Garden and park bench plaques: Want to dedicate a city or park bench, tree or garden? We can help with our attractive garden plaques and bench plaques. Types include etched stainless-steel plaques or brass plaques as well as cast bronze plaques.
Historic site plaques and markers: Our cast metal historic site plaques and markers are great ways to mark a building or location that’s significant to a city or state. Or, use one at a site that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
LEED plaques: Has your building earned a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating signifying its “green” status? Signify the accomplishment by displaying a LEED metal plaque indoors or outdoors.
Memorial plaques: Mark a building, park or another site "in memory of" an honored person or family with one of our cast metal or etched metal custom memorial plaques.
Military plaques: Our military and veterans’ plaques in cast metal will honor the service of men and women in our armed forces.
Photo relief plaques: Attractive and versatile solutions, our photo relief plaques blend photography and cast metal seamlessly and beautifully!
Sculpted portrait plaques: Created in a method known as “bas relief” in which a shape stands out from a flat surface, our cast bronze plaques are timeless, impressive ways to honor an individual, group or accomplishment.
Select from plaques in a variety of metals
With an extensive selection of types, Signs By Tomorrow offers etched metal plaques and cast metal plaques for every need … and any budget:
Aluminum plaques: A popular choice in a lightweight material, our aluminum plaques can be cast or etched.
Bronze bas-relief plaques: With this casting technique, bas-relief plaques gain an impressive appearance by having a sculpted element (often a portrait) stand out or rise above a flat background.
Cast bronze plaques: A classic style, our cast bronze plaques are often the choice for when you need an attractive plaque to dedicate, identify or memorialize.
Etched brass plaques: Our etched brass plaques feature recessed letters and graphics. Brushed or polished brass finishes are available, as well as paint-filled letters and designs.
Etched bronze plaques: These bronze plaques display letters and graphics that are engraved or etched into the surface. Many opt for brushed or polished bronze finishes and others choose paint-filled lettering while some elect to use both techniques.
Etched copper plaques: Looking for sophistication or elegance? Specify an etched copper plaque from us with a patina finish or satin finish.
Stainless steel plaques: Combining etched letters and photos, these are an attractive and contemporary choice. Our stainless-steel plaques often feature a polished or brushed finish for added appeal.
Zinc plaques: Another lightweight option, our zinc cast metal plaques are attractive in their natural state. They also can be toned to look like cast metal brass plaques or cast metal bronze plaques.
