Dedication and Memorial Plaques

At Signs for San Diego we only get a few calls about dedication and memorial plaques. Many of these come from families of the marine corps and the military in general. We tend to say yes before really understanding the jobs. In many ways the job details are secondary. It is a small way to honor people who made a difference.

Whether you’re dedicating a building or park, recognizing historical significance or honoring a person, we would be honored to help in your lasting tribute to your loved one.Lobby_Sign_Firemans_Plaque_2.jpg

In this case a son, a grandson, a vet and a fire fighter lost his life in an accident. The plaque did not come from us. It came to us from another loved one. We just put it up

It has a “French Cleat” This is a clever way to mount anything without marking the surface. It is an angle cut in a board, with a matching angle in another board. One board is mounted in the wall the other to the back of the plaque. The angles force the plaque back and down, locking it in place.

We also provide dedication plaques is brass, bronze and other metals. Some of the options are Cast, Etched and machined.

Cast is metal poured into a mold. It gives the plaque a shape

Etching is an acid treatment like developing a picture. It is used for fine detail work and photos.

Machined : this is a removal process

We can work in wood, plastic, glass or metal. We would be happy to mount an existing plaque or help where we can
