Thread: outdoor plaques

    outdoor plaques

    Hi All,

    I need some ideas for outdoor plaques about 6x6 or 7x9 that I can make with a laser engraver. I have a customer that will be giving me continuous orders but I have to send him samples with prices.
    Thanks,

    Tony

    There are other outdoor plastics from Rowmark and IPI that can be mounted to a suitable plaque backing to produce quite good results. Take a look at the Rowmark and Johnson Plastics web sites for ideas.

    Tony,

    If you decide to go with Glacier white Corian your material cost per 6" by 8" plaques will be less than $5 per plaque based on the wholesale price I pay from my local distributor.
