Above is shown a raised text/art/borders 2.5-D outline relief cast aluminum wall plaque of the US Coast Guard Seal. This wall plaque can be made in a wide range of diameters from 10 inches to 24 inches.
These can also be customized and personalized by mounting them on other shapes of wooden plaques (mahogany, cherry, maple, oak, redwood, cedar) with carved or brass plate text. A logo or emblem of any unit or ship can also be added onto this larger plaque. These wall plaques are suitable for both inside and outside locations. They may be purchased separately as well as in a set of 3 or 5 plaques.
We offer two material choices for these plaques. The more expensive choice is cast aluminum, where hot liquid aluminum is poured into a sand casting mold.These are relatively heavy and very durable. We offer these in any diameter from 10 inches to 96 inches. These are standard plaques, and although they can be personalized, it is quite expensive to do so since new molds are required, unlike our carved metal-coated plaques described in the next paragraph, where there is no additional charge for customization or personalization.
The second less expensive alternative is to carve in 2.5-D raised outline-relief the seal's design in ultra High-Density-Urethane(20 lb/ft3, 50% more than the density used by most signmakers). After the HDU is carved, the plaque is coated with a 12 mil thick real aluminum metal in a cold-casting process. The bronze coating is then polished to a high shine and the lower background is painted flat black (or other dark colors) for contrast. A plaque made this way looks very similar to a cast aluminum plaque. The advantages of metal-coating plaques is that they are about half the price and are much lighter than cast aluminum plaques.They will last decades inside and at least 10 years outside.They cannot be walked on or hit with high impact objects, whereas cast aluminum plaques are sturdier and tougher. The aluminum-coated HDU plaques can be made in diameters from 12 inches to 60 inches. This type of plaque can be metal-coated with bronze, brass, copper, nickel-silver (German silver), and stainless steel, as well as aluminum. All of these metal coatings can be highly polished and they can have different background colors, in addition to black. Dark (Navy) blue and dark (Forest) green are also good choices.
