We can make your commemorative and memorial plaques in cold cast/resin bronze. We can also make pet memorial plaques, house names and house numbers.
Cold cast bronze plaques are made of bronze particles bonded with liquid resin that hardens to create a solid material. There is a key difference between a cold cast/resin bronze plaque and a traditional foundry made bronze plaque. A foundry cast bronze plaque is made from hot molten bronze poured into a sand mould and allowed to cool and harden. With a resin bronze plaque the material is poured cold into a rubber mould and allowed to set.
Your plaque can be of similar dimensions as a foundry bronze plaque. The resin bronze material has advantages over foundry bronze. We can make large plaques that are difficult or impossible with real bronze. Your plaque can be any shape. You are not restricted to circular, oval or rectangular shapes. It doesn't even need to be flat so it could be designed for mounting onto curved surfaces such as lamp posts. The normal foundry bronze plaque thickness is about 1/4 inch. Large resin plaques can be made hollow to reduce weight and add strength.
We can make custom designs so you can have anything you can imagine. Working from our own artwork and sculptures so you can have any motif or emblem that you like. Our designs meet both aesthetic and technical needs.
You can fix your plaque in a few ways. You can screw it from the front into the wall or plinth. If you are worried about theft then you could use security screws as a safer option. You can even have decorative screw covers to hide the screw heads. You can also mount the plaque using bolts mounted on the back, which are resin bonded to the wall. It can also be stake mounted for tree plaques or lawn signs.
