I have some very rare original truck name plates I am wanting to reproduce, and I assume the originals may be aluminum castings. (cut-out script writing)

Can anyone recommend a foundry that might be willing to cast reproductions, when provided with an original to work from?

I assume aluminum castings would be my first choice, but I am also open to ideas.

3-D printing in plastic may work also, but not as my option of choice.

Thanks for any ideas or recommendations!

WOW! Having worked in one of the few carbon and alloy steel sand foundries still operating in the US, the absolute LAST thing I would want to do is try to make and pour molten steel at home on my free time. Foundry I worked at had three 20,000# capacity carbon arc furnaces, but typically only used two. I hand carried the check for the monthly electric bill to the power companiy's office once. Six digits in front of the decimal point. Three huge carbon electrodes in each furnace, they came in by the 45,000# semi-load about once a month. Rated capacity of cleaned ready to machine heat-treated steel castings was 12,000 tons per month. They had 11 or 12 heat treat furnaces for annealing or hardening castings, each about the size of a small 2-car garage. CAT was our biggest customer. Took a couple years but did find out there were open die forged equivalent parts forged and machined by Scot Forge Industries.
