It’s not every day that you find your services are required for the Royals, so we are very proud to be involved with a project that saw our supplied plaques unveiled by TRH Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!
Centrepoint help young people with housing support in the UK and also provide learning facilities and courses to young homeless people to help their future. Commemorating the opening of a new learning hub in Barnsley, Centrepoint required an A3 plaque for the exterior and an A4 plaque for the interior. Both plaques, in a brushed stainless steel, required the Centrepoint logo to be filled with corporate colours, a bright orange and black, four holes drilled for fixing and supplied with screw caps for a smart finish.
Obviously early on we knew the plaques were something special as our client, Centrepoint, provided us with the wording for the proofing featuring the names of royalty. It was only this month that the plaques were unveiled and the Andy Norman Learning Hub officially opened. You can see photos of the full event here on Centrepoint’s Facebook page.
So why chose a stainless steel plaque rather than a brass one?
Stainless steel offers a great finish, a grey silver effect rather than that of bronze or brass, it is a modern look, which is much easier to upkeep as it requires less polishing and will not tarnish so quickly. Able to stand up to weathering and harsh elements, it is ideal for external use. It can also compliment colours filled within it and it’s surroundings as it is a much more subtle colour than that of brass. These plaques feature an easy to read font filling the space of the plaque, along with a border for an artistic flourish. We can also offer backing boards and plaques are manufactured and bespoke to your needs.
If you require a commemorative plaque for your building or event, contact us for a quotation or a site visit, we are happy to help.
