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.

    Good plates. Not very bright brass.

    Posted by Jeff on Jan 22nd 2022

    The product was the exact size advertised. The holes were clean and centered. The product did not have any defects or scratches. It was packaged well and arrived promptly. My only complaint was the color/brightness of the engraving. I tried the "Laser Engravable Plates Black on Brass Plated Steel" that were SKU 32000 before these. Those were good plates too, but the brass that shows through was not bright enough for me. I was hoping this product would be brighter. However, after engraving they look almost identical. I communicated with customer support about it to see if they had a product closer to what I needed. The customer support was prompt and friendly. I tried their recommendations and ruled out any problems on my end (support suggested that the engraver was not powerful enough to remove the black coating). In the end these are nice plates that are well made. The brass that shows through after engraving is just not bright and contrasted enough for what I need.
