Recognition plaques are commonly manufactured using cast bronze, granite, cast aluminum, and can also be etched using bronze, brass and zinc. Recognition plaques are used to pay tribute to people, events and places that require historical recognition for their contributions.
Cast bronze and aluminum recognition plaques are a traditional form of signage used to preserve history, memorialize individuals and pay tribute to special events. Cast plaques are permanent forms of signage that will withstand the harshest of environments. Cast plaques have the unique ability to not only include copy but images and portraits can also be permanently cast into the plaques.
Etched bronze and aluminum plaques are frequently mounted to benches as memorial or donor recognition plaques. Etched plaques are also used for recognizing founding members, charitable gifts and historical events.
