Cast Logos, Seals & Custom Graphics



City Plaque
Sports Plaque
Our skilled craftsmen can reproduce virtually any logo or image from camera-ready artwork or photography cast in bronze, brass or aluminum. Whether your needs are architectural, identification, recognition or awards signage, we have the ability and experience to do the job right.

A custom emblem or logo can be added to your plaque in two different ways: One method the emblem/logo is made as part of the plaque. Detail is somewhat limited by the manufacturing process. The other method is to have the emblem/logo etched on a separate piece of metal and then attached to the plaque. This process has nearly no detail restrictions.
