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 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.
- 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:
