All plaques are fitted into a machined recess and held in place with screws. Often a combination of carved inscription and plaque is best, particularly if a long sentiment is required.


(Together) we select a plaque size that best suits the amount of script required as well as the size and design of bench. All script is finished in black unless otherwise requested.


Our recommendation is to choose a brushed stainless steel plaque, particularly with an oak bench –  they will not deteriorate over time and cost only a little more than a brass. Oak contains tannins and after rain unsightly staining will appear on a brass plaque.

Please be aware that brass plaques tarnish very quickly and show unsightly water stains.


If the plaque is carrying a sentiment or acknowledgement that is secondary to the main carved inscription, then this is often best placed centrally on the front lower rail. (this leaves the main inscription uncluttered).


Brass plaques are priced from £55 and brushed stainless steel plaques are priced from £75, including machining the recess in the bench and fitment.


All plaques are made for us by a specialist company.


We are also happy to fit a plaque supplied by yourself (charge of £25 if fitted into machined recess).
