Prestigious, traditional and impressive, nothing beats the look of a solid brass plaque. Deeply engraved, highly polished…the ultimate statement of quality and status.
Brass Plaques and Signs
For a prestigious look that fits into traditional settings and communicates superior quality, brass is the ultimate product.
Brass is a hard wearing, durable metal that delivers an impressive shine when it is polished. Whether located indoors or out, an engraved brass plaque will last a lifetime.
Solid brass plaques are widely used to recognise achievements, as a mark of respect and a symbol of professional services. They are popular as door signs for doctors, lawyers and other professionals; they are used on trophies and as nameplates for memorials.
Impact Signs use custom engraving to adorn a brass plaque with any typeface and logo. In addition we can also colour infill the engraving in order to match your branding. Your engraved plaque will be provided with domed screws to attach to a wooden surface. We can also provide the wooden backing plinth if required.
To keep a solid brass plaque in top condition, we recommend that they are regularly wiped with a soft, clean cloth and methylated spirits. For outdoor plaques, this is ideally a weekly maintenance task, but a monthly clean is advised for those located indoors.
The benefits of brass plaques
Brass offers several benefits when used for plaques, making it a popular choice for various applications. These benefits include:
Durability: Brass is known for its durability and resistance to corrosion. This makes it an excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor plaques, as it can withstand various weather conditions without deteriorating. It should be noted, however, that although brass doesn’t corrode, it does tarnish and will require regular polishing.
Aesthetic Appeal: Brass has a distinctive golden colour that adds a touch of elegance and prestige. Its polished finish can catch the light beautifully, making it visually striking and suitable for ceremonial or commemorative purposes.
Versatility in Design: Brass plaques can be easily customised. They can be engraved with text, logos, and other designs, offering flexibility in terms of aesthetic and messaging. This makes them suitable for a wide range of uses, from professional signage to memorials.
Longevity: Brass plaques can last for decades, making them a cost-effective option in the long run. Their longevity is particularly beneficial for permanent installations like memorial plaques or historical markers.
If you are looking to make an impression, engraved brass plaques signify status. You can trust Impact Signs to deliver this superior product.

Maintenance & Tech
Care of your Solid Brass Plaque
Congratulations. You have chosen the ultimate in prestige. However to keep your solid brass plaque looking good, you will need to follow the instructions below.
For light soiling or tarnishing, wipe with methylated spirits Take care that the cloth does not have any grit attached, as this may scratch the plaque. Also ensure that you do not wipe the wooden plinth (if supplied) as this may remove some colour
For heavy soiling or tarnishing polish with a proprietary cleaner, such as Brasso, again, Take care that the cloth does not have any grit attached, as this may scratch the plaque. Also ensure that you do not wipe the wooden plinth (if supplied) as this may remove some colour.
This plaque is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Conditions may vary, but in general indoor plaques should be cleaned once a month and outdoor plaques should be cleaned and polished every week.
If you notice a build up of polish in the text (or graphic), the best way to clean this is to use a soft cloth, or in the case of small intricate text an old toothbrush is ideal, but brush gently.
Fitting instructions for engraved plaques mounted onto wooden plinths
Impact Signs normally supply your engraved plaque ready fitted to your wooden plinth complete with domed screw caps.
Remove domes – simply unscrew by hand. We do not screw them tightly, however if they are too tight, wearing rubber gloves for extra grip will help enormously.
Remove screws with a flathead screwdriver and lift plaque away from wooden plinth.
You will now see the pre-drilled fixing holes on the wooden plinth. Use the plinth as a template and mark drilling points on the wall. Drill and insert raw plugs. Hold the plaque against the wall, line up with the raw plugs and screw firmly to the wall.
Now hold the engraved plaque against the wooden plinth. Line up the holes and screw firmly to the plinth.
Finally, replace the domed caps, hand tight, no tools required.
