About The Plaques

Our PlaqueMagic perpetual plaques are created using the process of dye sublimation, a digital printing technology that uses heat transfer to apply your customized background and design to a metal plate. In turn, the plate is attached to the plaque type of your choice (black laminate, cherry laminate or solid walnut).

We offer nearly 200 general and theme-specific backgrounds for every occasion and recognition purpose, that are unlike anything you have ever seen. By adding and personalizing title, text, images and logos, your personalized PlaqueMagic plaque is truly one-of-a-kind!

Over extended periods of time, the plaques will have limited color-fastness when exposed to direct sunlight

At PlaqueMagic, we believe quality is important! Our laminate plaques stand up against what would be considered normal wear and tear for a wall display. The image surface of your PlaqueMagic plaque is scratch, soil, and water resistant. You can clean the metal face of your plaque with a soft, lint-free cloth or paper towel and a variety of cleaning agents such as window cleaner, soap and water or alcohol.

Yes. The resolution is higher (300 DPI) on the actual plaques than on the web page (72 DPI).
