Hammerworks brass house name plates are hand-crafted from quality .3mm.brass, is embossed with the name of your choice, back-filled with polyester resin and wrapped around marine grade plywood for support. It is then polished to a high lustre and a two-pack urethane clear is sprayed on and baked to provide a durable barrier to tarnishing.
With the indented plaques, the brass is indented, back-filled with polyester resin and a sandwich formed with another sheet of metal behind to create a strong and durable sign. The letters are then hand painted in the colour of your choice and a urethane clear applied and baked.
The size of the finished plaque depends on the number of letters chosen; the width is constant, being 90mm. from top to bottom. The average length for seven letters is 440mm.
The optional timber plinth is made from Tasmanian Oak, a durable Australian hardwood, resistant to rotting and warping.
The 'No Border' style of plaque is only available in a brushed finish.
Notes on the clear coating:
While the urethane clear coating is ideal for normal conditions, a word of caution is given if the name plaque is to be mounted within 2 Kilometres of salt water. Because of the corrosive action salt vapour has on most surfaces, it is advisable to delete the clear coating. The bare brass will be unaffected by the salt except for the need to clean off the tarnish occasionally.
