MetalPhoto Plaques

MetalPhoto is ideal for creating your concept on metal.
A photographic process is utilized to impregnate your image into the anodic layer of photosensitive aluminum. The result is a permanent, scratch and chemical resistant image that is not only attractive, but durable. An ideal choice for exterior applications.


Primary Uses:

bulletInterior and Exterior (silver only) memorial plaques.
bulletAny type of recognition plaque that calls for replication of fine detail such as architectural drawings.


Metal Photo mounted on Granite

This silver MetalPhoto plate is permanently mounted to a metal backing plate which is then grouted into this granite rock. The result is an attractive marker which can be placed in very remote locations.
This piece incorporates both line images (see the welder in the lower right) and a photograph along with text.

Detail of the grouting around the edges and back of the plate can be seen here.
The key is to keep any water from getting behind the plate which could cause separation of the plate from the rock.

Available in both gold, silver and copper background with black print. Only the silver recommended for exterior use due to the fact that the others will eventually fade to silver.

Available by special order up to .125" thick and larger sizes.

If the application is for exterior use the plates are generally mounted to a metal backing plate with adhesive and screws. The backing plate 1/8" - 1/4" thick can have studs welded to it for mounting into rock or mortar.
