    A customer is asking to duplicate this brushed metal plaque. Where can I find pre-cut pieces or a small amount of raw goldish brushed metal to cut to this size? Is there a vendor for these kinds of blanks? Thanks.

    you can get a 48x96" sheet of polymetal with brushed gold on one side, and brushed silver on the other. I have a tiny job right now, and I'm out of the material, so I have to purchase an entire sheet again. Arg.

    We have a deal with our local trophy shop. They carry a bunch of thin materials like that and do the engraving as well. They give us a wholesale price and we use only them. Works out for us. Try checking with some local companies and see if they might be interested in doing some work for you.

    This is why you network with every fabricator in a one hour radius.
    I would give away a piece from the "scrap" rack to a competitor who called looking for some.

    This is what you are looking for...

    (bottom row, third from the left. I know it says Gold. The back side is brushed silver.)

    Anyone, PM me anytime.

    If they just need one go to any trophy/plaque place. They can laser print you one easily.

    Like I've said before...

    Information
    Information
    Information

    Gloss or Matte finish ...

    Size, thickness, you said "goldish"

    do you mean brushed brass/gold?

    Do you need an exact match?

    Romark can get you color samples

    Do you need solid metal?... you can order pieces cut from a local supplier or Metallic Arts etc

    I've cut up door kick plates in the past, if you don't need an exact match

    Are you saying a photo and a site survey are two different things?
