9" oak octagon on base with choice of engraving plates - let's talk about your preference, the default is black brass that engraves gold. But there are blue, ruby, and green marbled brasses, as well as red, blue and purple. There are also numerous coated aluminum options - they engrave silver. (One things about being such an old company - we have stock!)
We rotary engrave these awards 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.
