Upcycled Circuit Board Award Plaques - Laser Engraved Recycled PCB
Recognize and celebrate achievement with an award plaque made from recycled circuit boards! Laser engraving these circuit boards reveals a brilliant copper grounding layered just beneath the surface. That is our canvass to create with!
These are not your typical circuit boards. They were originally intended to be installed above freeways as the circuit boards powering the LED communication signs. You know those signs that read "Click it or Ticket" or "Chains Required" type of public safety messages. For an unknown reason, they failed quality control along the manufacturing process and had to be recycled. That's where we intervened!
Design your own or have us do the layout!
1. We provide a SVG file to assist with design layout (13.5”x8.25”) 2. The outline is the shape of the board, it can be rotated 90 degrees if you wish for a tall and narrow look. 3. Avoid putting any critical text or images within the circles on the board, they are holes! 4. Work only with 4 colors: White, Black, 75% Black, and 50% Black. 5. Full black is maximum copper reveal. 6. The white in the design will remain untouched and a high gloss black (hope that makes sense). 7. Avoid using a border, however bleeding over the edge is fine. 8. Final design should not include the original layout SVG border or holes. 9. Final design must be returned as a .pdf …………………………………………..

………………………………………. N O T E S ON M A T E R I A L S • We can talk about making awards with different color circuit boards if black isn't your thing. • We only use recycled circuit boards and therefore only have access to what is currently being recycled. Circuit boards in colors other than green are more difficult to source and are therefore subject to premium pricing. • If you have any special requests regarding color, component features, or any other design elements please reach out to us.
