The photos above on this page show many examples of organizational identity, commemorative, recognition, memorial,graduation and award wall plaques and seals for both organizations and individuals.Are you searching for (A) a custom carved wood sign or plaque that is suitable for an organizational seal, insignia or logo (e.g., a sign in the front of a base entrance or building, on the wall of a lobby, a hallway, a conference room, auditorium, office, or on the front of a podium), which are represented by most of the photos in the Gallery below, or (B) an award, a gift or present to be given at a special event such as a special assignment or organization accomplishment/citation, a promotion, retirement party, memorial, graduation, honors or recognition meeting, or other special occasion?
Traditionally, for (B), these accomplishments have been recognized with a small trophy or an engraved brass plate on a wood plaque, or a paper certificate, but these are small and hard to read,and they all look the same. We offer a better solution, which often costs less than a "cookie-cutter" brass plaque. Every one of our carved wood (mahogany, cherry, maple or oak) or HDU signs and plaques is custom designed and can be personalized, and we will work with you to modify an existing design or create a new design for you.Six of our popular designs are shown in the figure at the top of the page, and there are several other examples of personalized plaques distributed in the gallery photos above. We specialize on in making Government and Military Seal or Logo Wall Plaques carved in wood or HDU. These can be customized and personalized by adding names, citations, dates, and photos, etc as desired.
We will design you a custom and personalized sign or plaque for free if you purchase the sign or plaque, except for complex 3-D art which we do not have in stock. Refer to ID numbers (e.g. U30147) if you want your sign to be similar to one or more signs shown in the galleries. A variety of existing 3-D carved artwork is shown above; of course, we will design and make any custom or personalized (e.g., name, rank, dates, citation) design in addition to these. For carved seals or emblems, our custom 2.5-D designs generally have multiple layers , each of which has a flat top surface but are elevated at different levels (often referred to as flat relief). These are are 10-30% less expensive that true 3-D custom designs, which have rounded bas-relief front surfaces (continuous curvature "off-the-shelf" existing designs and are not considered custom; any of these plus many others can be added onto a sign or plaque, any size, for $50 to $100, depending on size. We also make engraved plaques, where we carve letters and art into a wood or HDU substrate with either a CNC router or a laser engraver (for small plaques).
