Mounting hadware for bronze plaques

Types of backs on plaques
The type of back on your plaque will depend upon the size of the plaque. We reserve the right to determine the type of back during the casting process.
Flat backed plaques do not have bosses - they have drilled and tapped holes but the mounting method is still called 'boss and stud.
