Etched Plaques

Watsons etched plaques allow for precise detail including fine text, detailed images or other intricate custom artwork. Chemical etching allows us to transfer virtually any design onto brass, bronze, copper or stainless steel. Etched plaques are a lower-cost alternative to cast plaques, while still delivering a high-end look.

Watsons offers four gauges of metal for your etched plaques : 1/16”, 1/8”, 3/16” and 1/4”. Artwork can be either raised or recessed, and backgrounds can be painted any single colour or combination of colours. (Available standard painted colours are the same as for cast plaques, which can be viewed here.)

Brushed finish is standard, but polished finish is available on recessed copy plaques. There is also the option for beveled edges for gauges 1/8” and up. Maximum dimensions vary by material.

Laser Engraved Plaques

For a truly distinctive look, consider Watsons laser engraved products. Available in either anodized aluminum or polished black granite and capable of full photographic detail, laser engraving is sure to make your project a cut above the rest.

Anodized Aluminum

Watsons uses 1/4” thick premium 5052 aluminum alloy, and laser cuts your shape or size prior to anodizing. Your selected anodized color is then embedded into the aluminum according to ANSI specifications and your plaque artwork is laser engraved onto the surface, ablating the aluminum thousandths of an inch deep to provide a contrast that has a look unique to this product line. Watsons offers four anodized colors, available in brushed (standard) or polished finish.

Polished Black Granite

For the ultimate in permanence, Watsons can engrave your artwork or copy onto polished black granite, which is suitable for interior or exterior applications. Choose from 11 common shapes and sizes up to 18” x 24”. For larger projects, use the six rectangle or square sizes in tandem to create your desired size.
