The edge of your plaque or sign can basically be described by how your product looks from the side, as different to how it looks from front-on (see the ‘Borders’ section for more info). A variety of edge designs are available.
The most commonly used ones are the Raised Edge and Bevelled Linished Edge, Bevelled Painted Edge and Plain Cut Edge.
Other Edge variations are available but due to the special bases required these edge may only be available in a selection of set sizes. Please contact us to check availability.
Many of the above designs (apart from the Bevel Painted, Bevel Linished and Sculptured Book Edges) allow the addition of a design border to further enhance the plaque or sign. The two examples below include our popular Antique border.
The border is the design that will surround your plaque or sign. It will be raised above the background surface of your product. There are basically two types of borders that you can use for your plaque or sign: Standard (Raised) Borders and Sculptured Borders.
Standard (Raised) Borders – these designs are basically simple solid borders with a variety of corner designs
Sculptured Borders – these designs are more intricate and are suitable for matching with the theme of the plaque or sign
To help you with your design decisions, suggested border widths (for either Raised or Sculptured Borders) are:
|Plaque Size||Border Width|
|Up to 4″ x 4″||1/8″|
|Up to 12″ x 12′||1/4″ – 1/2″|
|Above 12″ x 12″||1/2″|
