In addition to our cat portraits framing service, we also provide our clients with engraved plaques. The plaques are presented in either a Mirrored or Brush finish and in Silver or Bronze for £59. Clients can have as much text as required, however we need to bear in mind the amount of space to play with on the frame. The correct choice of frame is important and we can definitely guide you on this.
As you can see from Dudley's plaque below the area to place the plaque on was relatively narrow on the Clarence Cream Frame. However, the portrait of Mikey framed using our Traditional Flat frame, in our second photo below, the area to play with was much larger as there was a flatter area for the plaque to lay. This enabled us to commission two lines of text for that particular plaque.
For my cat pencil drawings, plaques can be attached to the frame itself, similar to the oils. Alternatively it can be set into the mount under the glass. You can see a photo of a plaque set into a mount below and one on the frame to compare. For the plaque set into the mount, we usually commission the plaque first and then provide our framer with the correct measurements for the rebate where the plaque will sit in the mount. Our framer often cuts the mount with more depth on the lower half of the mount to balance it all.
The first image below is of our Madison frame for pencil drawings and a brush silver plaque. The Madison frame allows for plenty of text to be added and the brush silver plaque matches beautifully with the silver tones on the frame. The painting below with the large Hampton frame has a mirrored bronze plaque which fits perfectly with the dark colour of the frame. The overall sheen of the frame and plaque make everything really shine.
If you would like a plaque on your framed cat portrait, just drop us a line with your ideas for the text. We are always happy to advise on which colour or finish would work best with your chosen frame.
