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.

    Quality Finish

    Posted by Scott Chordas on Mar 28th 2023

    This is actually a really good product. The brushed finished is quality and it never has pits in the finish or acid stains from the anodized.

    Ordered 3 plates. Two were fine but the third plate has some marks on it. Won't rub out but not the end of the world.

    Good workaround

    Posted by Harry Adams on Jun 29th 2021

    I built an 8x10 ranch bathroom with an entrance door and a side closet door to access the plumbing. I ordered both doors at Home Depot from Masonite. Both doors came with Mail Slots. Instead of returning these two doors and waithing another eight weeks, I covered the mail slot openings with your blank plates and sprayed foam between the plates. result is very satisfying..
