If you choose to use glass or acrylic glass effect panel for your honours board you will need to consider the colour of the wall behind it; the colour needs to contrast with the colour of lettering so that it's easy to read. In this case black works very well against the cream colour which could be quite a bit darker and still provide sufficient contrast.
Where we have used gold wording, the letters have been give a black outline, you can see this in the title line at the bottom of the page.
To obtain a contemporary look for your honours board you don't have to use glass or Perspex, a modern look can be achieved using traditional materials cut to an interesting shape and lighter in colour, you can get ideas from any part of this website.
Reproduction & Restoration of Honour Boards
We have become quite expert over the years in repairing and restoring honour boards but sometimes the time/cost involved is so great that it's better to start again and create a reproduction of an original honours board.
