Tough laser engraved brushed stainless steel for memorial plaques

Laser Engraved Stainless Steel

Brushed stainless steel is a great material of long-lasting memorial plaques. It is exceptionally durable and resistant to scratching. The lettering is not actually engraved into the metal but uses a lasering technique that creates lettering as tough as the metal itself.

Using this technique, we can also create memorial plaques with small text and detailed images. Even photos can be used if they are of good quality with plenty of contrast. These plaques look particularly good when fitted onto a stone-like Corian backing board.

Deep Engraved Stainless Steel using a process known as Chemically Etching

Engraved Stainless Steel Plaques

Stainless steel is an exceptionally hard material and to deep engrave the letters we use a process known as chemical etching. This has an advantage over mechanical engraving in that the letters can be smaller and fine detail can be used on the images along with good quality photos. Colour infills are also possible.

There are two types of stainless steel to choose from, a brushed finished or a mirror finish. Both are virtually maintenance-free and very unlikely to scratch. Photos are best on the brushed finish.

Stone-Like Corian and Wooden Backing Boards

Backing Boards.

Our carpenters can make the wooden backing boards to any size which is normally 20mm larger than the plaque. Standard wooden backing boards are made from iroko wood as little maintenance will be required. It is also the cheapest. Other timbers are available.

An alternative is stone-like Corian which comes in a range of colours. The slate Corian looks very effective with the stainless steel. When using a Corian backing board we don’t drill holes into the plaque as we use an exterior double-sided tape which is super strong.
