Using the Metalphoto® process, Pella Engraving Company produces highly durable photosensitive anodized aluminum plaques.

  • This process reproduces photos, graphics, text, and illustrations in crisp, fine detail.
  • Metalphoto offers fastest turn-around time of any of our plaques.
  • Anodized aluminum plaques resist weathering, fading, and abrasion from UV rays, heat, salt spray, and cleaning products, which makes them perfect for indoor and outdoor use, including memorial plaques, donor recognition plaques, and industrial nameplates and serial or ID tags.
  • Also great for metal images on anniversary, wedding, and other event memorial plaques.
  • Available in three thicknesses.
  • Metalphoto plaques can be used alone or added to one of Pella Engraving’s other plaque offerings to incorporate a photo.
  • Three-year warranty

Popular uses for Metalphoto: corporate plaques, employee plaques, years of service plaques, dedication plaques, retirement plaques, veteran plaques, sports plaques, memorial plaques, recognition plaques, indoor and outdoor signs, office signs, bathroom signs, logo signs, industrial signage, commercial signs, and business signs.
