This plaque is a great example of the creativity we use for creating one-of-a-kind memorials.

plaque with color plate and engraved plate

Wood Plaque with border and custom plates

Plaques with custom logos can be a challenge, but this plaque combines the best of engraving and a custom, full-color logo. Each award is unique, and each person being honored needs a special form of recognition.The presentation of this wood plaque with plate involved a thank you to a young volunteer who arranges events for the World War II 16th Armored Division Association. These veterans meet to be honored by the Czech people they liberated at the end of the war.

The logo for the 16th Armored Division looks great in color, so it was imprinted on its own plate and added to the display. The dark wood borders of this plaque add to the finished look of the entire award. For more information about custom plaques, give us a call at (503) 344-4476, or use our contact form.

Dash Plaque

Car Show Dash Plaque

Car shows and cruise-ins are a big part of summer for classic car owners. Car shows provide dash plaques as souvenirs to owners who enter the show. Car clubs and show sponsors know that offering dash plaques will sign up early to be sure they get one. We use one sided gloss white aluminum plaques in 3″x 1-1/2″ size to create full color plates.

There are other sizes available, such as the one in a 2-3/4″ x 4″ format. The plaques are designed to feature the car club or event logo, date, and the name or logo of any sponsor.  Often entrants bring a display of their dash plaques on a display board or a notebook to for a quick visual of where the car has been shown. Ask about other car club awards and products available. 503-344-4476.

$60.00 engraved

Growler - Stainless - Personalized

$70.00 Engraved

Note Engraving for the stainless growler requires extra processing and time to create, and the use of a blackening agent when lasered, the personalization is permanent. Make it a special memento of that party or other occasion.

Both containers have double-walled vacuum insulation. Both are certified BPA and lead-free. Hand washing is the best cleaning method, and cleaning in the dishwasher is not recommended.  Keep the growler cold until you have time to triple rinse it with hot water, then let it dry in the air upside down with the cap put aside.

These growlers have two times the heat and cold resistance as regular growlers.  They are four and three-quarters inches in diameter and eight and one half inches in the chamber, with an overall height of 13-1/4″.  The thickness of the walls is 3/16ths.

How much beer will the growler hold? A six pack of beer is about 72 ounces, so you will have a little more than five beers in a 64 oz. growler. How many pints is that? Four pints. It is best to keep a growler refrigerated until you are ready to use it, and the beer will keep one to two weeks.  However, you should probably use the beer within 4-6 hours from when it is opened.

 UV Resistant Signs

UV Resistant Signs

aluminum-plaque engraved

For outdoor use, we supply a material composed of a multi-layer black coating over anodized aluminum, backed by a 3M high performance adhesive.  This metal named Dura-Black is the only CO2 laser engraved product certified for outdoor use that does not require pre-treatment or a protective topcoat to withstand the elements. Because of its ability to perform in challenging environments, Dura-Black meets many government, industrial and military specifications.The material comes in two thicknesses, one for rigid plates and one for slightly curved surfaces.

We have a variety of materials available to make the perfect sign just for you.  We use the process of sublimation for color transfer, via heat to specialty materials that soak in the color. The result is an item that has soaked up the color.  This will stay fresh for many years, although the sublimated products will fade eventually in direct sunlight exposure.

Photo murals

Through the process of sublimation, we help you turn your photos into mural art.
