Embossed Novelty Plates

ACI manufactures custom, aluminum and copper embossed plates. The aluminum plates are coated in a wide variety of colors (see column to the right). Copper plates are finished with a protective clear coat that prevents corrosion. Both plates are available in a wide variety of text (ink) colors for the embossed letters (see below).

Top legend (ARIZONA) and bottom legend (GRAND CANYON STATE) are available for both copper and aluminum plates with a single row of center characters. Double row center characters will not allow top or bottom legends due to the amount of space needed.

When ordering please remember that all letters will be capitalized (no lower case letters available) and be careful to distinguish between similar looking letters and numbers, e.g.:

    Letters L or I and the number 1
    Letter S and the number 5
    Letter G and the number 6
    Letter Z and the number 2
    Letter B and the number 8
