Need It Soon? No Problem.

Why wait weeks for your plaque? ... our normal production time is 10 to 14 working days.

Whether your plaque or marker contains standard text or custom artwork, Wausau Awards can manufacture a plaque to your specifications in just days following approval of artwork.

We will transform your two-dimensional artwork (or we can do all the design work and set up the file to your specifications) into a precise three-dimensional plaque made from the highest quality alloys. The quality of these plaques is made to last for decades.

Take a look at your options below and contact us today for a quote or to place an order.

Below is ordering information for Etched Stainless Steel, Bronze, Brass, or Copper plaques.
For Cast Plaque ordering options, please see this page.

Basic Information

In order to provide you with an accurate quote, please include what size you are approximately looking for, or what space restrictions you have in the area the plaque will be mounted.

Please include all text and logos you are looking to have cast or etched, or a rough draft of your text if this has not been finalized.

Cast letters must be of a certain minimum size depending on font. Etched plaques can capture finer details. We will advise you on that based on what size plaque you are looking for, and what text you need to have cast or etched.

If there is a specific event or day you need to have the plaque installed by, please note it when contacting us so we can advise you if there will be enough time to meet your needs.
