Bronze Plaques Are Not Third Place

Posted by Sacred Engraving on 1/13/2015
We all know that a bronze medal is given out in the Olympics as being in third place, yet we beg to differ.  Bronze has a resiliency and aura all of its own.  Its qualities have merits on their own in relation to the other metals.

Will my Plaque be Coated with a Patina Finish?

Posted by Sacred Engraving on 1/11/2015
Cast bronze plaques are very special. Time may pass by but bronze plaques are permanent. You're not going to turn around one day and notice that your plaque has faded or that the sentiment it meant to convey has become obsolete. Instead with each passing day the bronze plaque takes on ever more history and a greater importance to what comes after it.  Each of our plaques at Sacred Engraving are complete with a standard patina finish. 

How Do I Design A Plaque?

Posted by Sacred Engraving on 12/30/2014
Designing a cast bronze plaque to commemorate or honor a loved one or even a colleague involves a lot of personal choices, and can seem a bit overwhelming to start. Before you can even start, however, you need to decide on the purpose of the plaque. Will it be to dedicate a garden or a park bench to someone who's made great contributions to your organization? Is it meant to honor a retiree or to give academic accolades?

How Do I Keep the Beauty of Our Plaque?

Posted by Sacred Engraving on 12/30/2014
Your plaque is meant to be seen to show distinction, honor, and accomplishments. Of course you want to do your best to protect it and keep it looking paramount. When bronze is exposed to the elements, over time it becomes oxidized. Just like silver becomes tarnished over time, bronze becomes oxidized. Unlike tarnished silver, however, you must take a little more care to keep the oxidation process from occurring. Once the process begins, its more difficult to keep your plaque in its original state.

What Size Plaque Do I Need?

Posted by Sacred Engraving on 12/18/2014
The size of a plaque is determined by many factors, including what youre trying to accomplish with it. Most standard rectangular plaques are usually no smaller than 12 x 10 and can be made as large as 36 x 48 if not larger. Cast bronze plaques are available in many sizes and shapes, however, and in order to decide how big or small youd like your plaque to be, or what shape it will take, its important to identify the purpose your plaque will serve.

What are Some Uses of Cast Bronze Plaques?

Posted by Sacred Engraving on 12/17/2014
Most often, we see cast bronze plaques in parks and along trails denoting historical moments and providing information about geography, climate, or the ecology of an area. Because cast bronze is composed of copper, tin, aluminum and zinc, it wont rust, and will holds up against the elements making it perfect for outdoor use.

What is Metalphoto?

Posted by Sacred Engraving on 12/13/2014
Metalphoto means high resolution image reproduction on metal.  This includes graphics, pictures, and text imaged onto photosensitive anodized aluminum.  The result is a sharp, durable image that is weather, UV, and abrasion resistant.  Anything that can be printed on paper can be made a lasting image on metal.

What is Cast Bronze?

Posted by Sacred Engraving on 12/13/2014
Cast Bronze is an alloy which is created by mixing at least two or more molten metallic elements that result in a harder, stronger, and more durable metal compound. Cast Bronze is typically comprised of Copper, Tin, Zinc, and Lead. It does not rust, and does not weaken or erode under harsh weather elements.
