How To Order A Plaque For Your Business

How To order a Plaque.

Contact us by phone or email. We can give you a price over the phone or by email based on the size of the plaque required, if you require a logo on the plaque, how many colours are going on the plaque.

Brass plaques are engraved or etched. Plaques are  1.5mm thick, we use quality polished engravers brass or brushed or polished stainless steel, Popular fonts used for engraving into plaques are Arial and Times New Roman, although any font can be used.

For the production of logo plaques we will require vector artwork sent to us as EPS files or AI files, JPEG files are for printing and can not be used for logo production on a plaque unless the jpeg black and white line art or illustration. If the logo is only available as a JPEG file we will need to vectorise it first before we can use it.

Once the price is agreed, we will send you an email with a visual of what the plaque will look like, at this stage any corrections can be made of the wording on the plaque,  the size of the lettering and layout of the text as well as verifying the spelling and checking the logo artwork if there is any.

There is no extra cost for how many letters that are on the plaque, there is no extra charge for logos, our prices are purely based on the size of the plaque.  Brass plaques and stainless steel plaques cost the same price. We need to know how many colours there are to be on the plaque as this does affect the price.

After the layout has been agreed, we will require payment by credit card or cheque. Cheques are made payable to Arro Signs.

Once payment has been made we would then proceed with the order and either engrave the plaque or chemical etch it depending on the amount of detail required on the plaque.

Text only plaques are engraved or etched while logo plaques are usually etched. Etched or engraved the finish is the same, both result in a recessed text and logo into the metal which results in a permanent and durable sign that will last for decades.

Finally the plaques are parceled up and sent via Parcel Force or similar delivery service. 

All plaques are available with or without a hardwood timber base. We can engrave and etch plaques from 50mm x 25mm up to 1000mm x 1000mm. Our most popular size for business plaques  is A4 size 297mm x 210mm which are usually supplied with hardwood timber bases.
