Cast Bronze Plaques

Bronze plaques are usually unpainted to show the beautiful, traditional plaque metal

Historic events and people (famous and otherwise) are customarily preserved or remembered by the unveiling of a bronze plaque.  The longevity of a plaque is symbolic of the memorial, staying fixed in people’s hearts and minds.

We at Ward Signs pride ourselves on producing design that captures the eye and imagination, ensuring that the overall feel of the plaque is in keeping with the memory of the time or person. Cast bronze is a favourite medium for plaques due to its natural resistance to corrosion and its classic look. Whether all toned or having the text and border bright linished to contrast the toned sections we achieve excellent results.

Once the design is completed, the plaque is made using the sand casting technique, having gone through a number of manufacturing stages.  Finally, the plaque is linished/finished by hand and “secret” grouting rod fixings or “stand of” brass locators are incorporated.

If you would like a painted plaque, cast Bronze would not be the material to use but rather cast aluminium.  Not only is Bronze more costly, but the whole point of bronze plaques is to show it’s natural colours.  An alternative to cast Bronze would be engraved Bronze effect material, which combines the classic colour with a modern, crisp look.

Ward Signs was proud to be involved with was the Olympic Games “Pindaric Ode” Cast Bronze Plaque, featuring the Ode read by Mayor of London, Boris Johnson for the Olympic Games 2012 Opening Ceremony.

Over 10,000 organisations in the UK have used Ward Signs
