Product Information

 

Components

All plaques are made in Australia, plaque components, badges and buckles are made in house and are hand cast by us in white metal. This ensures that the highest quality possible can be met. All other components are made within the local Brisbane area even down to the cardboard boxes our plaques are supplied in.

Paint Finishes

All of our products that have a colour applied to them are painted by hand and we use only the best current lead free enamel paint finishes.

Metal Finishes

Our metal products can be finished in a range of ways to suit either quality or budget. Our highest quality finishes are all electroplate finishes which consist of – Chrome or Copper Bronze. Other finishes include paint, which is a slightly cheaper alternative to plating and this also gives you the option to finish a product in any colour you may desire. We can also supply raw polished pewter or a chemically aged patina to the pewter which gives an aged dark smoky colour to the finished product.

Timber Products

We offer an extensive range of plaque shapes and sizes, however we can custom make any shape and size to your requirements. Timber colours we offer are Black, Rosewood and Light Walnut with Rosewood being by far the most popular. All of our timber products unless otherwise stated are finished in a Lacquer.

Felt Inserts

Some of the timber plaques in our range have a rebated section which allows for a felt insert to be fitted which will give your plaque a unique look.We have a wide range of colours to choose from so please consider this option if you are commissioning a new plaque design.

Please call and discuss your engraving needs as you will find our pricing extremely competitive.

Commissioning a New Design

Please call us if you are thinking of having a new plaque designed. Here are a few of the things that you may need to consider to get the design process underway. The first thing is some drawings or artwork, even hand drawn on a piece of A4 can be enough to start with. Preferably a vector graphic in Corel Draw or an EPS file is ideal however PDF or JPEG will also suffice. The second item is a finished size of your plaque and fittings and thirdly as usual it always comes down to money so if you have a budget to work to please let us know so we can try to use the appropriate finishes to help meet it for you.
