Stunning copper plaque graces Alaskan plaza

copper-plaque-outdoor-kenaitzeWhen the Kenaitze Indian Tribe of Alaska dedicated its newly constructed Raven Plaza this September, the celebration included a copper plaque created by Pella Engraving Company.

The sign, which was a 21” diameter, 1/4” thick circle, was praised by Royal Brown, project manager for the Kenaitze Indian Tribe: “We received the plaque today—it’s simply MARVELOUS!!! Totally exceeds my expectations in every way—your team did a great job. THANK YOU for all of your assistance and please thank your team for their creativity and diligence in finishing this project so quickly.”

You can view photos from the dedication ceremony at the tribe’s Facebook page.

If you’re creating a memorial plaque destined for exterior display, Pella Engraving Company offers stake options to meet your presentation needs.

Life is full of people, places, and events that deserve to be remembered. One way to preserve those memories is with a long-lasting, personalized memorial plaque. With a memorial plaque, you can honor a company founder, commemorate a historical event, or pay tribute to a friend or family member.

Pella Engraving offers several types of memorial plaques—the right one for you will depend on your specifications. The type of material Pella Engraving will use for your plaque will depend on the environment in which it will be installed, whether you’ll want to include a picture or artwork, and the overall feel you want for the final product. Give us a call at 877-549-5447 and we’ll help you decide what material is right for you:

  • Magnesium – An economical option perfect for detailed artwork, but exclusively for indoor use.
  • Zinc – Great for detailed artwork and indoor or outdoor durability; an excellent lower-cost alternative to bronze.
  • Bronze – A classic option that conveys a sense of importance.
  • Brass – An elegant, lower-cost alternative to bronze. An image can be etched into the brass and then filled with color, or the plaque can be etched with a raised image then given an antique finish.
  • Metalphoto – A nice, less expensive material for a lasting plaque. Whether it is all text, or includes a photo, Metalphoto is for you. These plaques can be used indoors or outdoors and resist weathering, fading, and abrasion from UV rays, heat, salt spray, and cleaning products.
  • Copper – Offers a recognizable warm, ruddy color and classic feel; suitable for outdoor or indoor use.
