In this three page Gallery 31, we have over 600 photos of Armed Forces wall plaques and signs we have made of their seals, crests, emblems, badges, insignia, medals, flags, and shoulder patches. We also make base entrance signs, building signs, way-finding signs, command boards, podium plaques, wall signs and  door signs.

We make outdoor signs as large as 20 ft x 10 ft in size, and can ship these anywhere in the US and many overseas locations.

Globe-and Anchor Metal-Plated Plaque and Letters we made for the Pentagon Office of the Commandant of the Marine Corps


Although we show painted HDU in full color for most plaques on this page, we can make any of these plaques out of wood (cedar, mahogany, maple, oak, cherry, &   redwood). We can also put digitally printed long-lasting full color vinyl (photos or very elaborate painted or digital art) as an applique on any HDU or wood plaque. We can laser engrave small plaques.  For Command Boards, we make photo frames with glass covers where photos and names can be easily replaced when there are personnel changes

Any seal, logo, emblem, insignia, etc. can be carved and put on a wood plaque as an applique. Photos can also be added onto the plaques. The plaques themselves can be made of a variety of natural or stained woods (cedar, redwood, mahogany, oak, walnut, cherry) or of HDU, if painted. If you can't find a design you like in this Gallery, we will design you a custom sign for free. We will work with you to design and build the exact wall plaque you want!
