This plaque is unusual in that it is black coated aluminum rather than brass so the engraving is silver to match the borders of the plates.
Perpetual, or multiplate, wall plaques are used for regularly occurring events – monthly, quarterly, yearly – or to memorialize past presidents/chiefs, deceased members etc. The header has room for a logo/graphic and some description of its purpose but it’s best not to be too wordy. The small plates are made ideally for 2 lines, usually a name and date.
We rotary engrave these using a diamond cutter and complex fill patterns to cut into the metal. This makes for logos that pop and text with depth that sparkles and catches the light. We do not laser engrave metal as it makes a flat, lifeless award.
