Outdoor Weatherable Plaques with Portraits
Here is our photo gallery of outdoor plaques:

There are several options for permanent signs that include portraits:

Bas Relief

Bas Relief Plaque

The finished image will be an artist’s 3D interpretation of your photograph in cast bronze or aluminum and mechanically attached to the plaque background. The standard overall height is 6” to 12” with a finished depth of 3/4” to 1”. (Requires a six-week lead time.)

Minimum price for a 6" - 10" tall single portrait is $1,430.00 in addition to the base price of the plaque.

in 11", $1,510.  in 12", $1,600.

Flat Relief

Flat Relief
An alternative to the expense and time-consuming process of bas relief, flat relief plaques are two-dimensional castings that are part of a precision tooled plaque. The process starts with a good quality photograph or illustration from which our craftsmen create a black
and white rendering. Suitable for interior or exterior applications, they perfectly fit the bill when your project requires a portrait but the budget won’t allow for bas relief. The price for any size is $492 on top of the base price of the plaque.

A seamless blend of casting and photography, PhotoRelief™ is perfectly suited for unique signage, historical markers, or any plaque that needs to tell a story with words and pictures.
Through innovative technologies, we can use one or more photographs to create a simple and elegant plaque or a breathtaking collage that illustrates the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

Other, less popular options include:

Etched Portrait on Metal
Etching offers the precision required to replicate your high-definition photograph, line drawing or complex artwork. Etchings are available in stainless steel, bronze, brass and copper.

Giclee Print on Metal

Giclée (pronounced “zhee-clay”) is the term for high quality reproductions of art utilizing high-resolution inkjet printers. The result is a picture perfect product that is excellent for indoor applications and even some exterior ones.

Oval, Round & Rectangular Ceramic inserts

Add an image to your plaque by choosing a ceramic insert. We can apply a full-color digital transfer to a standard-sized blank ceramic base, available in oval, round and rectangular shapes. Ceramic inserts can also be printed for medallion plaques.

Laser Engraved Polished Black Granite

We can engrave your artwork or copy onto polished black granite, which is suitable for interior or exterior applications. Choose from 11 common shapes and sizes for the base material. Utilize the six rectangle or square sizes in tandem to produce artwork over a larger surface area than our maximum single piece size of 18” x 24”.
