Anodized black color aluminum is ideal for outdoor applications and very durable resisting elements with coating on both sides for protection.

These solid aluminum plates are versatile and work with machine (rotary & scratch), hand engraving, laser * engravers and can be used for a variety of purposes from nameplates to desk or door plates to plaques and awards. Other uses are dog tags, jewelry, and artwork. The material is rigid and its not suggested to bend anodize material by force because of distorting.

These are made from high quality aluminum designed for engraving and will have a finish that uniform, smooth, and blemish-free. All of our engraving plates are guaranteed to be manufactured as the ‘best available’ in the industry and you will receive the highest quality that is proudly made in the USA.

How to choose plates

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. 

 If you need help choosing plates, just contact us  and we will try to provide some help in choosing the best plates for your needs.

    Fantastic customer service and products!

    Posted by Doug on Sep 5th 2023

    Recently I had a very odd need for a special plate to fit and existing mount, and I needed a lot of them fast, the very friendly staff worked with me to find the right plate, and make adjustments needed to make them perfect for my need. They worked with me the entire process and even checked in to make sure they where being made properly. What I received was perfection, they fit perfect, they engrave crisp and clear on a 40 watt CO2 Epilog laser with no problems. They should look great and hold up well for us. I will come back for sure for all my future engraved plate needs for our museum!

    This is the only place I order from for my fiber laser. I've referred this website to several people in different Facebook laser groups in the past few days.
