Cast Bronze Plaques
Whether you're looking for a plaque that honors a departed loved one, recognizes a sponsor or donor, or commemorates a particular achievement, the cast bronze memorial plaques from Perfect Memorials are an attractive, affordable solution. Available in a range of sizes, these bronze plaques can be affixed to a garden bench, a flagpole base, a stone memorial, or a wall. Each can be personalized not only with multiple lines of custom text, but also by background color and texture, and border style.
Bronze Plaque Sizes
When choosing between bronze memorial plaques, you'll want to first consider where it will be mounted. If you plan on mounting it on a wall, for example, you'll likely want a larger plaque than if you'll be affixing it to a bench. Cast bronze plaques are available in several different sizes:
- 7.5" W x 5" H
- 11" W x 8.5" H
- 12" W x 24" H
- 24" W x 12" H
- 16" W x 20" H
- 20" W x 16" H
- 18" W x 24" H
- 24" W x 18" H
Not only should you make sure that you have enough room in your chosen location for the plaque that you purchase, you need to make sure that the orientation is correct. Most bronze plaques can be designed so that the longest dimension is either vertical or horizontal, and you'll want to verify that you have the right setup.
No matter which size you choose, all of the bronze memorial plaques from Perfect Memorials can have up to 9 lines of engraving, with up to 46 characters per line. You do not need to use every line or every character in each line; our talented design team will arrange your custom text so that it fits the allowed space in the best way possible. The more lines and characters that you request, the smaller the text will be.
You have a number of options when it comes to the text font for custom bronze plaques, including having all of the text capitalized. Choose from three font options: Helvetica, Optima, or Times New Roman.
Line Art and Photos
In addition to custom engraving, you can personalize your bronze plaque with other options, at no additional cost. You can have your line art-style graphic or logo added to the plaque, or choose art from our extensive collection. Please call our customer service team at 1-800-979-8767 if you'd like to add art to your order.
Several bronze memorial plaques also have space for one or more ceramic photos to be added in color, black and white, or sepia toned. These photos are created through a special process that permanently sets the image into the ceramic, ensuring that it won't deteriorate over time. Ceramic photos for custom bronze plaques are typically 4.5" x 6" ovals.
Additional Customization Options
With all of our bronze memorial plaques, you have the option to change the background color, the background texture, and the plaque border style. Choose from a light brown, dark brown, or black background, and one of three different textures: pebble, leather or plain. For the border, you can select a raised single line, a raised double line, or no border at all.
