If you want a metal plaque of exceptional quality and design - we're here to help you every step of the way
Our goal is to provide you with a high quality work of art, one custom-made to fit your needs. It's possible to create a cookie-cutter template with X many characters per line and X many lines per plaque with only limited font choices - but in our opinion that doesn't do justice to the process or what you're honoring with these raised artwork plaques.
If you're looking instead for finely detailed plaques with recessed artwork, please check out our Etched metal plaques.

How To Receive A Quote
To provide an informed quote on your project we would need to know a couple things:
1) Review the Ordering Options at the top of this page and let us know which you think are closest to your vision. We would also be glad to discuss each option with you at more length.
2) Do you have a specific or at least rough idea of the size you'd like the plaque to be?
3) Will there be text only or also logos or photos incorporated?
4) Do you have a general idea of how much text you're looking to have on the plaque?
5) Would you prefer square, circle, rectangle, oval, or some other shape?
6) What kind of wall or object are you thinking of mounting the plaque to? (Stone, pillar, brick, drywall, concrete, something else?) [In other words do we need to plan to leave room for mounting holes?]
If you email or call with that information, we can pretty quickly give you a ballpark price. We'd also be glad to set up an initial proposed layout (no obligation) to see if your project can fit on a plaque of the size you intend.
We can also quote you on the smallest size possible with your artwork - and then quote you the next several larger sizes up.
