Images of Bronze Plaques

Bronze Plaques with image treatments

Bronze Plaques containing images are an exceptional value with numerous methods for depicting the image.  Thanks to current technology, the only limit is your imagination and budget.  The prices for including images on a bronze plaque range from around $150 to over $2000 (in addition to the price of the bronze plaque) so it is critical that you permit our designers to assist you in your selection of the appropriate method. All bronze plaques that use iimages require significant artistic talent to produce a quality product. Bas relief sculpting uses the talents of a human sculptor (as opposed to photographic methods). This method, above all others, requires exceptional artistic talents such as those exhibited but our own sculptor.

  1. Production times are estimated standard production times.  Expedited guaranteed production times of 5 day, 10 day and 15 day may be available by special arangement.
  2. Flat Relief and Bas relief are not photographic processes.  The longer RECOMMENDED production times allow you (the customer) time to review our artists efforts and request changes if desired.
  3. Through the extraordinary efforts of the sculptor and the foundry, we have created a custom sculpted bas relief bronze plaque for the U.S. Military in 10 working days.
TEST

The image for a bronze plaque with a flat relief is created by our artist from a photograph.  The subject can be virtually anything from a person, to a building, scene or object.  The entire plaque is solid bronze (or aluminum if selected).

Bronze plaques with raised text and 3 dimensional raised images.  The imaging process allows the inclusion of significant details that are impossible to obtain through the traditional sculpted process.  The overall effect of this process is the inclusion of extraordinary detail while avoiding the 'artistic license' of having a human sculptor model the image.  The image is raised about half of the height of traditional sculpted models.

A sculpted bas relief as shown below is created in clay by our sculptors and after your review of the model, it is cast in bronze and becomes a part of your plaque - click here to view pictures of this process.

Each of these cast bronze plaques contains a custom sculpted bas relief image. We never use 'generic' bas relief models. Each model is sculpted from the images you provide
