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.

    The plates were exactly as advertised

    The way the plates were packaged caused most of them to have a slightly bent corner which required a bit of extra effort to straighten them.

    Consistent Quality

    Works great, even with shading. The metal feels light yet substantial, unlike business cards you might find on amazon.

    I laser engraved a sign on a medium-sized plate with my glowforge. It worked perfectly and looks sleek & professional.

    Not what I ordered

    Posted by Kevin on Apr 30th 2022

    I ordered the flat black on aluminum so when it was laser etched, the lettering looked gray. What I got was the glossy black and the lettering was brass. The metal plate was aluminum but there must have been a brass underlay under the black. What I got was good quality and I can still use them but they were not what I was expecting. They did give me a few pieces more than my order amount. 3 day shipping took a full week. -2 stars for the error but +1 star for the extras.
