What Should I Have Engraved on my Plaque?
This is a question we get often. There is no right or wrong answer, but at a minimum you should include:
The recipient's name
The company or organization name
A description of the achievement
A date or season
Photo plaques include a slot for your favorite picture. This is a wonderful way to add a special memory.
What is the Most Popular Size?
There is no one most popular size. Generally, plaques for younger children tend to be smaller, for example 7" x 9" or at most, 8" x 10". The same would be true for adults when the achievement is more frequent (say employee of the month). For special events and recognition, a larger plaque, such as 8" x10" or 9" x 12" may be more appropriate.
