Memorial Plaque Production Schedule
How long will it take?
Our standard production schedule is
3-4 weeks (except custom sculpted bas relief's
- such as a persons face). Some plaques on
our standard schedule go out sooner, you should use
our rush service if you MUST have
your order shipped in less time.
If needed, we can ship custom memorial
plaques - including those with a custom bas relief,
in a little as one week.
To really save time, use our design
wizard where you can
design your own plaque, see changes
in real time and order on line. You can have your
plaque designed, view the proof and purchase the plaque
all inside of 15 minutes.
If you prefer to have us do the design,
fill out our quotation
request and in most cases you
will have a proof in hours (during normal working hours).
If changes are needed, just call and we can make them
in real time while you watch on your computer screen.
Comparison of Memorial Plaque Production Times
Our Wizard, creates your design in real time and when placing your order on line, your plaque ships in 5 days (see Rush Service below) to 4 weeks depending upon options selected. Most plaques scheduled for 4 weeks ship in 2 weeks but this is NOT guaranteed.
Our designers take longer than the wizard but most designs can be accomplished within hours.
The competition seems to advertise it takes 24 hours for a design and 24 hours to get a change to the design.
what our customers say about this.
RUSH SERVICE (*)
1 week rush - 100% premium (**)
2 week rush -  50% premium (**)
3 week rush -  25% premium (**)
(*) Rush service is offered on a limited selection
of plaques: colors, textures, finishes and borders.
(**) Minumums apply and expedited shipping such as
Next Day Air (if requested) is additional.
BAS RELIEFS OF A PERSONS FACE - Custom sculpted
bas relief's can be done in as little as one week
using our rush service. Without the rush service,
we recommend allowing 8 to 12 weeks. You will get
the image of the clay model in 4 weeks and, if approved
immediately, you may get the completed plaque in
another 2 to 3 weeks. If you allow 12 weeks, you
have time to request changes to the bas - which
typically take another 2 to 3 weeks.
We strongly urge you NOT to schedule any ceremony
involving a cast plaque until you actually have
the plaque in your hand. Production times vary
depending upon when in the overall production
actually 'hits the foundry floor'. Delays can (and
do) occur that are out of our control including;
flawed castings that must be redone, shipping
damage, lost or delayed shipments, etc. Orders
can not be canceled and refunds will not be offered
for plaques whose delivery has been delayed.
