This plaque is made from air-dried solid oak, which starts as a very nice light golden colour, but will eventually weather to a silvery-grey over the years. We can apply danish oil, which will add some weatherproofing and colour protection, but eventually the timber will weather naturally. You can give the plaque a quick rub down with sandpaper and another coat of danish oil once a year if you wish.
We laser-engrave these plaques, and can offer a wide variety of fonts and layouts. We normally email a proof design to you, and feel free to let us know any preferred fonts/layouts up front, which can save time.
Our standard size is roughly A4 (20x30cm). Our large size is approx 25x40cm, and we can also offer a custom size option for something other than these, but please contact us and we'll discuss what size stock we have available. Please note we cut each blank from boards we have in stock, so the sizes are approximate and thicknesses can vary from 30 to 60mm, typically around 40mm.
All solid timber can change as it ages, and if kept indoors, you should protect your product from constant changes in temperature and humidity. Outdoors, the plaque will last longest if positioned so that it has air circulation and will not be constantly wet.
Please note that the colour and figuring of wood varies quite a lot, and even similar pieces can develop differently during oiling. The images should therefore be used as a guide only: the finish you receive may be a little lighter or darker.
For delivery, we wrap each product in a combination of fabric, paper, bubblewrap and cardboard, according to what is needed to protect each item.
If you would like your product gift wrapped, we will be delighted to help, at no extra cost: please just let us know when you place your order. We will use strong brown paper over whatever is needed to protect the item, and add some further protection for shipping.
