Background colors available for memorial plaques from The Memorial Plaque
The background of most for memorial plaques is painted to provide a pleasing contrast to the highlighted areas and may be
painted with standard or optional (extra cost) finishes pictured below. Custom-matched (PMS) painted colors can also be provided. Additionally,
natural chemical patinas and simulated painted patinas are available on bronze plaques.

The patina finishes are created by applying chemicals and heat to the bronze plaque surface. Once the desired color is achieved, the raised areas
are highlighted and a clear protective coating is applied to inhibit further chemical reaction.
- We can match virtually any painted color from a sample provided or from a numerical color matching system (for example, the Pantone Matching System).
- Colors may vary slightly from batch to batch. In addition, background colors will change over time due to exposure to light and the environment.
- Chemical patina finishes will vary from piece to piece, and uniform colors over large surface areas cannot be controlled. The color may vary from the
pictured swatches and the color will change over time on bronze plaques installed outdoors.
