Local custom picture framer Colbert Custom Framing & Art Printing has expanded its services by adding custom metal plate engraving to its products. Materials available include silver aluminum, silver and gold aluminum, as well as black on silver and black on golden. Engraved plates are available in custom sizes up to 12”x8”.
“We’ve always been able to source engraved plates to put on a mat or on the face of a frame,” said 3rd generation owner Stephanie Colbert Randall, “but bringing this service in-house opens up more opportunities for the customization and creativity that we’re known for.”
An engraved metal plate, completed with a diamond drag tool by the company’s CAD software-operated engraving machine, adds a touch of class to any custom framing job. The client can include information like titles, names and dates on the beautifully engraved surface. Font style and font sizes are also customizable. Colbert’s talented team can offer suggestions on how to customize engraved plates for the best results.
“This is yet another way we continue to provide “You’re Going To Love It’ to our clients,” added Colbert, who loves to tell clients’ stories and feature treasured artwork and items through custom framing, custom art printing, and now custom metal plate engraving.
