Artwork is scanned and sized to best fit the plaque using a computer, so this cost is not great. If clear black on white artwork is provided this cost is further reduced. Design work costs only occur once; subsequent orders for identical plaques incur no further charges. We recommend the use of simple logos as these have the greatest visual impact.
After manufacture the bronze plaques are fixed into the seat frames. They are glued and screwed to a flat landing cast or welded into the frames from the rear so no fixings are visible. Manufacturing and fixing costs remain at the same cost per unit however many units are ordered, so there is no substantial cost dysfunction to having a small number of units with a cast bronze plaque.
The way these plaques are machined and lacquered means that in most instances highlighting is not required. However, if required, logos can be highlighted by hand in any B.S. or RAL colour at additional cost. Simple logos highlighted in one colour are inexpensive: complex crests in several colours take much longer for our skilled craftsmen to do and so cost considerably more.
