PlaqueMaker offers several methods for creating your customized products, including:


● Sublimation – Ink is heat-pressed into the material; used on aluminum.

● Engraving – The top layer of the material is lasered off to revel a different color underneath; used on laser metal, plastic, granite, marble and bamboo.

● Laser Fusing – The image is fused to the surface of the material; used on stainless steel, brass, copper, bronze and titanium.

● Frosting – Used on Glass and Clear Acrylic, the laser removes the top layer of glass or acrylic creating a frosted white image on the back of the finished product.

● UV Color Printing – Can be used on most products; the UV color printing is indicated on the order form.


Since PlaqueMaker introduced UV color printing, customers are starting to appreciate the benefits.

Considered by many industry leaders as the new standard of commercial printing, our UV color printing can print full color photos, artwork and logos directly to most of our plaques, signs, awards and gifts, including those made from wood, metal, glass, acrylic and plastic. The process uses ultraviolet-resistant ink (UV) that is designed for indoor use and is guaranteed for outdoor use for up to two years.
