Stutzman Chromes out a 1966 Honda CB450 Red Dragon Classic Motorcycle

 People know you for what you've done for them in the past, and don't think about what you could do. That's why we like to post our unusual projects here on the blog - to let clients know we can metal plate anything you want.  We are here to serve all your metal plating needs in Los Angeles and around the globe.

One of our more interesting projects to come through the door is this 1966 Honda CB450 Red Dragon Classic Motorcycle.  The owner wanted chrome plating for the gas tank and we were only too happy to oblige!

The Giving Keys

We are so proud to work with an organization like The Giving Keys. We plate their keys in copper and give them the burnished quality that symbolize the message each key represents from the giver.

The Very First Key

This story begins with a New York hotel room key. Actress and singer/songwriter, Caitlin Crosby, started wearing the hotel key as a necklace while on tour and had the idea to start engraving old, used keys with inspirational words. Realizing that, in a way, we are all like these keys – unique, flawed, scarred, and sometimes discarded by others – she wanted these keys to have their purpose renewed over and over again.
 You can find out more about the Giving Keys here: and if you have any copper plating needs please give us a call at: 323-732-9147

The Finish Is First... But It All Starts With The Customer.

We recently Googled ourselves and came up with a bunch of images of various projects we've completed over the years... but that isn't what made us smile.

They are all great projects - furniture, fixtures, art installations, large objects, small cast objects -  and they all were done to our highest professional standard. The standard you've come to expect from you the Los Angeles metal plating company since 1950.

What made us smile were all of those satisfied customers we were able to impress with how much we were able to add to their metal object - character, style, color, texture - value.

We were able to do it in record time thanks to our large facilities, decades of experience, and expert staff.

So whether you're a drum set being used for the Superbowl halftime show,  an order of doorknobs for a new five-star hotel, the Emmy statues, or even a family heirloom that needs some TLC...

Stutzman Plating is here for you.

That's because while the finish is first,  it all starts with the customer.
