The edge of your plaque or sign can basically be described by how your product looks from the side, as different to how it looks from front-on (see the ‘Borders’ section for more info). A variety of edge designs are available.

The most commonly used ones are the Raised Edge and Bevelled Linished Edge, Bevelled Painted Edge and Plain Cut Edge.
