Metal Plating Projects Large or Small

"Wine is the most civilized thing in the world" -Ernest Hemingway

Stutzman Plating's latest custom job is signage for a Portland, Oregon hotel.  The base metal is aluminum, and we plated it in a custom antique brass, in one of our large metal plating tanks designed for "over-sized" projects like this. 

Here is the base aluminum being lowered into the tank for prep before the final brass metal plating.

The piece is seven feet long by 1. 5 feet tall.  It's approximately  3.25" thick - a huge, heavy piece to plate. However, the results speak for themselves.  From prepped aluminum to a custom antique brass metal finish.

The newly-plated metal catches the light, giving the sign a 'fire' all its own.  Perfect for this Portland hotel's wine cellar. 

We have many projects from around the world to show you here on the blog. We hope this will provide you with a  better understanding of how well Stuzman Plating has been serving clients' metal plating needs since 1950.   If you see one of our projects here on the blog, and want to know more,  feel free to go to our website or call us toll-free at 888-612-5396.
