How to choose plates
Our best selling engraving plates are Brass and Aluminum (Brushed are a bit more popular than and Bright) that are used on trophy's, plaques, awards, memorials, desk nameplates, and other engraving work. If you choose brushed brass or brushed aluminum, you will be using the most popular engraving plates. For coated engraving plates, our black aluminum and laser black aluminum (if your using a laser engraver) are the top choices for customers.
The various aluminum colors can be used to match a background or picture and the anodized aluminum is designed for accessories or outdoor use. Both the colored aluminum and anodized aluminum are designed for scratch or rotary engraving.
Choose by exposure
Solid metal brass and aluminum will maintain their color but painted or coated plates can wear off from physical wear and abrasion or when the plates are significantly bent, heated, or exposed to chemicals. The anodized metals are designed to withstand weather and wear and will maintain their surface even with outdoor exposure, sunlight, and moisture.
Looking to use them for another purpose?
The solid metal engraving plates can be heated, bent, or soldered (coated plates should NOT). Brass and aluminum without colors can be bent and modified (there can be some surface discoloring applying a torch and you may need to protect the metal when heating or possibly polish it after) because of surface treatments, you should do some testing before starting important projects.
