Plaques

Most plaques are manufactured as laminates.  That is, they have a composite wood core with an outer layer that is either a veneer or a print (similar to a laminate floor).  These plaques are generally very inexpensive and will last for a long time, even generations, if cared for properly.  In appearance, they look similar to a solid wood plaque.

At the higher end are solid wood plaques which are  usually walnut or cherry.  These plaques are much higher quality but are considerably more expensive.  

Which is right for you?   For most applications, a laminate will work fine.  If you have a special occasion  such as an heirloom print or a wedding, you might want to use a solid wood plaque.  You need to choose based on the occasion and your budget.

About  Profile and Mounting Area

Dimensions listed are measured at the outer edge of the Plaque.  All plaques have some sort of an edge profile which reduces the mountable area of the plaque.  We use 2 edge profiles on standard stock plaques.

 

The curved profile on the left has a mounting area .75" less in each direction than the overall dimension.  For example, a 9" X 12" plaque has a flat mounting area of 8 1/4" X 11 1/4".

The beveled profile on the right has a mounting area .25" less in each direction than the overall dimension.  For example, a 9" X 12" plaque has a flat mounting area of 8 3/4" X 11 3/4".

About Available Sizes

We normally stock two sizes of each plaque, 6" X 8" and 9" X 12".  We can also supply the following sizes on special order - 5" X 7", 8" X 10", 10 1/2" X 13", 12" X 15".

In addition some plaques are available in large sizes up to 24" X 36".

Contact us for either special order or large size plaques.

Make sure to allow for the true mounting area when ordering plaques.
