Plaque Selection

Plaques are one of the traditional forms of recognizing achievement. Logically, we would display a number of plaques for you to select from and wait for your order. That approach just wouldn't do justice to the unbelieveable variety of plaque boards now available, not to mention the many decorative brass plates or the type of engraving - laser, diamond or rotary - or even the possibility of lasering directly into the wood.

Rather than making the selection of a plaque far more complicated than it needs to be, we have displayed a few, linked to the catalog of a supplier whose plaques and service have been very satisfactory and stand ready to fabricate a plaque that you have imagined. As you consider a plaque as an award, take a look at the following list. If you do call or e-mail, these are the questions we will ask.

  • What is the occasion? Our reccommendations will be different for a University award in contrast to one for a Cub Scout Pack.
  • What size award will you need?
  • Would you like solid wood or does the budget dictate a less expensive composition plaque ?
  • What finish do you prefer? Plaques are of all types of wood or appear to be walnut, oak or marble.
  • Do you want the formality of a brass plate or double plates?
  • Do you have a specific arrangement for the text or may we use a "best fit" layout?
  • Would laser engraving directly into the plaque result in the desired effect ?
  • Would one of the newer acrylic plaques be as appropriate as a woodplaque?.
  • Will the plaque be hung on the wall or will you need an easel?

Image descriptionDIRECT LASER ENGRAVING

For this type of plaque, we use Walnut, Oak or Red Alder and laser text and graphics/logos directly into the wood. For the lighter toned plaques, we can or will recommend darkening the engraved area for better contrast. Some of the wood finish or marble finish plaques are suitable for direct laser engraving

Image descriptionCUSTOM SHAPED PLAQUE

For the clubor group that wants a truly unique award, we will fabricate a specific shape from wood, and after staining and sealing, will laser engrave the award information or if the shape of the plaque allows, will affix a rectangular plate. Custom metal plates are notcurrently available.

Image descriptionPLAQUE WITH CUSTOM CENTRAL EMBLEM

The focal point of this plaque is the emblem. We had this emblem cast to specifications and we then attached the emblem to a solid wood plaque with decorative plate.
