Looking to Engrave Your Plaques? Consider These Tips

Plaques are a great way to celebrate academic achievements, commemorate years of hard work, and acknowledge the winning team. No matter how you want to present the award, getting it engraved makes it more meaningful by leaving a personalized touch. Engraving a plaque can be difficult, especially if you have not done it before.

However, the following tips will help you make plaque engraving a hassle-free job:

Keep it Simple 

Make sure to not over-specify your engraving message, like keeping it lengthy by including too many details. Lengthy information or excessive wording requires smaller fonts, which will look congested and make the engraving difficult to read. Therefore, include only the basics (name, achievement, and date) when engraving the plaque.

Use One Font

Use one font type for engraving a plaque rather than using two or more font styles, as it makes the engraving look cluttered. Just bold, enlarge, or italicize the font if you want to highlight certain words, such as the recipient’s name or their achievement.

Utilize Blank Space

If you have blank spaces even after including your engraving specifics, use them to break or highlight the information or include your company logo. This ensures readability while making your award look professional.

Double-Check Your Spelling

Double-check the spelling of the recipient’s name and other details before sending them to the trophy engraving company. Misspelled details on awards are common, but it might leave your company looking unprofessional.
