Border styles available for memorial plaques from The Memorial Plaque
The border on memorial plaques is cast integral with the plaque and is
generally highlighted by either a stroke-sander, a buffing wheel or
hand-rubbed to provide a pleasing contrast with the background finish.

Flat Decorative Borders for memorial plaques
These borders are produced from black & white line art. Borders are raised the same height as the lettering on the memorial plaques and are highlighted to match the raised copy. A few standard examples are shown; others can be easily created from artwork.
- Most of our standard borders are sized in proportion to the size of the memorial plaques. If exact border dimensions are required (for example,
to match an existing bronze plaque) please specify when ordering.
- In addition to the width of the ornamental borders shown, custom widths may be sculpted by our pattern makers.
- Most of our borders - particularly the ornamental and flat decorative styles - may be cast and provided in lengths for use with other sign or decorative elements.
