Engraved Plaques in Australia

Jacqui Nuske - Thursday, November 11, 2010

Engraved plaques are a great choice when you're recognizing the accomplishments of an individual or group. The award you present to them will be one they will be proud of and will enjoy displaying for years and years. The range of available materials and styles is endless, whether you need to recognize a sports star, a long-serving employee or an academic achievement, the choice is wide.  

Selecting an awards and engraving company is not simply about choosing someone that has a large generic range or simply pumps out wooden plaques. Awards , be it custom designed or Corporate awards, require the contribution of a dedicated design and production team that have an eye for style and design as well as attention to detail. The top suppliers will give you personalized service, both on-line and in person or over the phone, depending on your preference. One of the many services offered is to advise you on the best choice of material for your custom application, whether it be acrylic, glass, brass or quality wood such as rosewood or walnut. 

Sometimes schools, clubs and associations need to recognize and honour people on an on-going basis.  Annual winners of events and competitions can be recorded on perpetual engraved plaques that can be displayed for generations and added to as required.  

When recognizing individual achievement it is possible to design and customize the award to the individual’s personality. You can select a unique style of plaque using, for example, a black acrylic material or tinted glass mounted on polished wood perhaps with a gold or silver finish on the frame. An engraved personalized message of your choice makes it truly special and it will be treasured by the recipient.

Engraving techniques differ depending on the material used. Look for a trusted company that is experienced in all styles of engraving and using all types of materials.  Technically, engravers can apply any type of artwork including logos to provide a professional finished product that can promote a person or brand.  

Plaques can be used out of doors as well, the uses extend beyond awards to mount on office walls and in the home. They can be used for identification signs, house names, memorials where a permanent and durable finish is needed.  Special techniques are used to prevent fading and weather damage and plaques can be attached to most flat surfaces.

Engraving suppliers that offer only the best quality plaques, awards and trophies as well as top notch service are not too plentiful so choose carefully.  The supplier should have an on-line presence, be responsive to your needs and have good after-sales service.  Engraved plaques can provide continuous joy to the receiver as the award can be kept for ever.
