Zinc Plaques

An acid-etched zinc plaque is a good option for detailed artwork and outdoor durability. Zinc plaques can also be used indoors when durability is desired—for example, in a humid weight room or gymnasium or for a memorial dedication that will be in place for a very long time.

Zinc is also an excellent lower-cost alternative to bronze. Raised areas on a zinc plaque can be colored gold, silver, or copper, while bronze plaques only come in their natural color. The acid-etching process also allows for a greater range of font sizes and more detailed graphics than bronze casting.
