Attached is a reworking of the recent ‘decorative nameplate’ concept. It should prove to be more cost-effective, plus easier to install.
The yellow border becomes two bracketing tiles at either end. With a single encaustic ‘spacer’ tile between the two sets of characters. These can have a design appropriate to whichever solution we agree on – dark or light.
Personally, in removing the encapsulating yellow frame, the darker tile option now looks more appealing.
The securing frame should be powder-coated black.
Overall, this solution will be cheaper, easier to install, and weigh less too.*
