Our Plaque Examples
Plaques Plaques

A plaque is defined as an “ornamental tablet” mounted to a wall, door, building, statue, or other surface and usually made of metal. The traditional function of a plaque is for commemoration--for instance, you may see a plaque on a building to commemorate a donor. Plaques are also popular for office directories because they are polished and professional. KC Sign & Awnings provides custom made plaques for awards, memorials, identification, and any other purpose you can imagine.

Types of Custom Plaques

The longevity of our metal plaques is second-to-none because we use weather-resistant materials that are ideal for outdoor use.

Our plaques can be created from:

  • Bronze
  • Brass
  • Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Acrylic

In addition to these material choices, you have a variety of options for finishes, background textures, and colors. Whether you’re looking for a modern or classic look, our designers will create an attractive, durable plaque for your needs.

Our plaques can be created from:

  • Cast plaques: Available in bronze and aluminum, cast plaques are often seen in offices, school campuses, government buildings, historical buildings, and memorials. Metal casting is a process that has been around for thousands of years. It involves pouring the molten metal into a mold in order to form the desired dimensional shape.
  • Precision tooled plaques: Available in aluminum, bronze, and brass, precision tooled plaques are cut with computerized equipment and often used for logos. Our graphic designers can create a vector of your logo that can be transferred via this precise method.
  • Etched and engraved plaques: Want your plaque to display a detailed image or graphic? Etched and engraved plaques are created with chemical etching, a process that makes it possible to add complex images to brass, bronze, copper, or stainless steel.
  • ADA and wayfinding plaques: Metal ADA plaques are often used for restrooms, stairways, no smoking signs, and more. In addition to providing you with a durable ADA plaque, we’ll ensure that its design and installation are compliant with regulations.
  • Acrylic and aluminum plaques: Acrylic plaques are laser cut, easy to customize, and low cost. Like acrylic, aluminum plaques are a less expensive option, but they are made of all metal--and they won’t rust!

Some of our finishes include:

  • Brushed
  • Painted
  • Oxidized
  • Patina
  • Polished
  • Mirror
