All of our products are 100% bronze (or aluminum) and are designed and manufactured in the United States.  Our prices are already discounted.  If you find prices that are lower, we recommend that you confirm the information. Remember, you get what you pay for. Read "The Facts" below.

It is a well known law of economics that states that you can only have 2 of the following ;
  High Quality - Good Service - Low Price

We believe we offer the best of all three.

HIGH QUALITY - Bronze is forever!!! The alloy bronze is created by melting down ingots of copper, tin and lead in an 88/10/2 ratio.  When the name is preceded by another word or letter in its name, it is probably not the real alloy.  Faux bronze is NOT bronze.  By definition, Faux is "A French word meaning false, fake, imitation or artificial."  Bronze mixed with scrap iron is not bronze and it will rust over time. Metallic coated plastic made to look like bronze is not bronze. Etched zinc, faux bronze and bronze metallic coated plastic are all products sold as low cost alternates to real bronze.  When new, many of these cheaper products look like real bronze and it is almost impossible for the average consumer to tell the difference between bronze and one of these imitation products. Some retailers in order to make a sale will use these products and not openly state what their materials are and hope that in the 2 or so years it takes for these products to deteriorate, the customer will forget from whom it was purchased.    While these faux bronze products may be usable for your purpose, they can not outlive real bronze.

GOOD SERVICE -  Service is as important as price and quality.  What good is low cost and high quality if the end result is late delivery or just plain unacceptable because the supplier 'sold you what you asked for'.  Service not only includes being friendly when a customer places an order.  It also includes the ability (and knowledge) to tell a customer that something they are requesting may not be right and then working with the customer to achieve a properly designed product.  Making a sale is not enough for the people at The Memorial Plaque.  We must feel that the end product is the best possible design and we are willing to put The Memorial Plaque name on it.

LOW PRICE - Our prices are discounted.   We do not offer a low come on price and then add cost for each character, item of hardware or delivery.  Our prices are complete.   When you submit your on line quote request,  you will get a full and accurate quotation and a convenient link for purchasing your plaque on-line.  Even if you have to change wording or mounting hardware after our quote, our price will not change as long as the text still fits on the same size plaque.

Remember - as in most things in the world today - You get what you pay for.
