Cast Aluminum

Available in Gold/Brown, Gold/Black or Silver/Black, these cast aluminum frames with outdoor rated engraving material inserts are much more affordable than purchasing a solid cast aluminum plaque. Available in the following sizes:

  • 10″ x 8″
  • 8″ x 6″
  • 6″ x 4″
  • 9″ x 3″


The following materials are in stock ready to be engraved and are all rated for outdoor use. They can be used with or without a frame (above) depending on your application.

DuraBlack Aluminum

DuraBlack® is CO2 laser markable aluminum for durable, on-demand marking for harsh operating environments. In side-by-side tests, DuraBlack outperforms black anodized aluminum and laser markable acrylic tape in select applications. DuraBlack is resistant to sunlight (UV-radiation), abrasion, high-temperatures and chemical exposure. Because of its ability to perform across a range of challenging environments, DuraBlack meets several government, industrial and military specifications including MIL-STD 130N, A-A-50271 (≈MIL-P-514D) and MIL-STD-15024G, Type L.

Anodized Aluminum

Anodized aluminum is the preferred material for engraving photographs that will be placed outdoors. The quality and longevity are superior to most other materials. 

Textured Laminate – Brown/Gold

This brown and gold laminate material has a “pebbled” surface to help prevent scratches and is UV rated for outdoor use.
