Welcome to our photo Gallery for our custom and standard cast bronze and aluminum metal plaques,  We design,  and have a foundry partner which  casts  3-D or precisely machines 2.5-D custom  solid (i.e., not plated) bronze and aluminum wall and podium  plaques for courts, federal and state governments, military units, universities, fraternities & sororities, clubs, corporations,  and  homes. We offer standard models such as the five military seals, and custom plaques where we create the artwork on the plaque. 3-D custom bronze plaques have the highest prices. Next lower in price are the 3-D custom aluminum plaques. The lowest price are solid precisely machined 2.5-D standard aluminum plaques.  Each  plaque is fabricated  by  experienced and skilled craftsmen and artisans

We offer solid cast and precision tooled custom and standard bronze and aluminum engraved, 2.5-D flat two-level relief and 3-D  bas-relief plaques, which we have fabricated by  a professional nationally known wholesale foundry, Gemini, located in Minnesota. These are the only plaques on this website that we do not fabricate in-house; we design them,  but we have Gemini perform the  casting or precision milling  of these type of metal plaques.

3-D Bas-Relief Cast Bronze & Aluminum Plaques. These plaques are classic and permanent , and will last hundreds of years. They can touched or even walked on , and are more robust than our 3-D metal plated plaques which look similar but will not last as long outside where they can be touched by people or abraded by wond-borne particles. They are ideal for professional offices, universities and government buildings, address plaques, historical markers or memorials.  They are tested and approved for outdoor use, as well as indoors. They have a lifetime guarantee.

For casting,   a 2.5-D or 3-D computer design of the plaque is first developed, which is used to control a CNC router which carves a foam replica. This replica is then used to create a sand mold,  and molten bronze or aluminum is then poured into the mold. After the plaque has cooled, it has any rough edges ground off, and it is  polished and coated. Background areas can be given a patina or can be painted. Finishes include brushed, painted, oxidized, patina, and polished, in multiple background textures and colors.  Standard borders such as single line, double line, inset line or with beveled edges can also be included at no additional cost. An example of an cast bronze plaque is shown in Fig. 1 .
