Insignia Plaques

We are proud to announce a great new product.  These are a line of insignia plaques.  They are NOT the usual, small reproduction of the insignia centered on a wooden plaque.  The insignia is reproduced in full color to cover the full face of a wooden plaque that averages 10 -12 inches or larger.  The plaque is then sealer in a clear gloss acrylic.  The quality of reproduction is such that the individual stitches in the embroidered insignia can be seen!  Any insignia in stock can be reproduced on these plaques, but if we don’t have the design in stock, just send your original to us to use and return with your completed plaque.  Believe us when we say you have never seen anything superior to  these.  They are the finest available.  When ordering, please remember that these are custom items.  Please allow 4 - 5 weeks for delivery.  Order yours today.  We promise you will not be disappointed.

These are priced at $29.95 each.  Should you want an engraved brass plate added with up to three (3) lines of engraving, add $6.00
