It appears to me that you are not able to reliably position your material accurately enough by whatever method you are using.
There are ways to do that, but if you want to “keep life simple” perhaps just use a larger material blank, cut the pocket/letter area, then run a Profile cutout around the perimeter (spaced/offset as desired). This will assure an even border all around your pocketed area.
Others may chime in with “less simple” but bonafide techniques for accurate positioning as an alternative to using a larger material blank, as described. If you are making a jillion of these plaques, all precut to the same size, then alternate methods will make more sense.
