How to Engrave Plaques

As with trophies the true value in plaques comes from their personalized engraving. And also like trophies, there are some general plaque engraving “Rules of Thumb”:
  • Keep It Simple! Because you have more space, there is a tendency to want to say more and fill up the space. But when name plate engraving plaques and awards, less is more. Say the important things.
  • Focus on the person receiving the plaque and the reason for presenting it. Use bold and/or italics along with font size to bring attention to the person’s name plate engraving.
  • A date in the engraving helps to commemorate the event.
  • Upper and lower case mixed is easier to read than all caps.
  • Spacing the lines on the plaque engraving makes it easier to read.

Here are some examples of plaque engraving:
