Listed below are 36 standard letter styles most commonly used on plaques. Other fonts are available upon request through our graphics library.

Custom letter styles may also be provided for cast plaques. Before submitting artwork, contact us.

Raised vs Recessed Graphics

The casting process creates plaques with 2 levels of graphics - raised and recessed. Graphic images are raised .100" from the background texture.


Letters can be recessed on a cast plaque if the stroke of the letters is at least 1/8" at all points or serifs.

Example: Narrowest point on serif must be at least 1/8"

These plaques pictured below were made from the same artwork but the raised and recessed areas were interpreted differently.
