4 Different Uses for Etched Plaques and Signs

Etched Metal

Etching is a marking method that many companies choose to use when they are having metal signs or plaques made. The reason why etching is chosen is because of the versatility of such a marking method, and because this allows for the creation of intricate and highly detailed metal plate designs. This means that this particular type of metal plate can be used in many different ways.

Etched metal plates are very versatile, and can be used in a number of different ways. Here are some of the more common (and some unique) uses for these:

Commemorative Plaques – you see these in building lobbies, outside historical landmarks, in front of churches, and even in schools. These plaques often honor the people who played a huge role in the creation of the building, the success of the school, and so on. These plaques are often rather big and mounted on a stone block, near the doors of the structure, or inside the building and on a wall that everyone can see. These may carry information about the person, and even details on what they achieved for the building, school, etc.

Decorative Plates – did you know that you can create decorative marked plates using etching? Did you know that these decorative plates can be used on anything, and this includes your products? Etching is such a versatile marking method that you can draw a very intricate decorative design, such a floral markings or scrollwork, and have these printed onto metal plates. These can then be used to decorate products like jewelry boxes, cigar boxes, and other similar items.

Brand Plates – you can also have your product’s brand plates made using etching. Since etching is a marking method that creates precise and detailed designs, these can be used to create tags that carry company names, brand names, logos, and the like. These can then be inked in to make these more eye-catching and distinct. These can then be used on products or to create special promotional items, like company keychains, refrigerator magnets, paperweights, and many more.

Special Occasion Mementos – if you are unsure what to give the top achievers in your company to remind them and others of the good they did, or what to give attendees to a special event you are hosting (birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, etc.) you might want to consider using etched metal plates crafted into commemorative souvenirs. You can have these plates etched with the event name, the venue, and some special message, and then mount these on wooden frames or ceramic plates. You can even have a person’s face etched onto these plates if you wanted to.
