This page provides a description and photo Gallery of our standard, custom, and personalized wall and podium plaques for foreign military units, officers, and other personnel.

We have many styles and materials, and can make plaques in sizes from 10 inches to 10 feet in diameter.This page shows plaques featuring the seals, emblems, and insignia of countries other than the US, including Canada, the UK, Germany, Russia, and Nigeria.

In this gallery and the other military galleries, we have a total of over 600 photos of wall plaques and signs that we have made of military seals, crests, emblems, badges, insignia, medals, flags, and shoulder patches. We also make base entrance signs, building signs, way-finding signs, ship signs, command boards, podium plaques, wall signs and door signs. These are shown in our companion website, www.artsignworks.com.
We make wood, High-Density-Urethane (HDU), and metal-coated wall plaques and signs as shown throughout this and other Galleries. We can customize the size, shape, carving relief, text, materials, and color scheme of any plaque shown on this page, and we can make a custom plaque for ANY artwork you may have. Send us a drawing, a photo or a rough sketch, and we will design and make a carved dimensional plaque to your specifications. We can make plaques that are engraved (V-carved or flat bottom) , 2.5-D (multi-level relief), or 3-D (sculptured bas-relief). We have a large library of existing 3-D and 2.5-D computer models that we use to carve these plaques, which greatly reduces graphic artist labor costs. All our plaques are manufactured in the USA by American craftsmen.
Although we show many painted High-Density-Urethane plaques on this page, we can make any plaque out of natural wood (stained) or put any of several types of metallic coatings/color schemes on them . We can also put digitally printed long-lasting full color vinyl (photos or very elaborate painted or digital art) as an applique on any HDU or wood plaque.
PLAQUE RETAIL PRICES
Our plaques have wide variations in prices, depending on size and style. Fig. 1 below shows our three basic relief styles, 2-D flat relief , 2.5-D multi-level relief, and 3-D bas-relief. These can be made of different materials, including natural wood, artist-painted High-Density-Urethane (HDU) , metal-coated HDU, and acrylic. Our STYLE page describes these in detail. All 2000 photos of plaques on this website has a Style Category and a Price Code listed in the second or third paragraph in the text description under the photo (click on the photo or title to expand the photo and read the text to get the price code of that plaque, then look up the price for different size plaques with that style on the Price List at the bottom of the PRICE page).
Our lowest price economy 2-D plaques feature digitally-printed full-color giclee vinyl appliques mounted on a round or rectangular a solid wood or acrylic base. The retail prices for this type of two-dimensional (2-D) flat custom plaque are as low as $80 (acrylic base) to $120 (Mahogany solid wood base) for 10 inch diameter plaques. The same style plaques in a 18 diameter size have prices of $120 (acrylic) and $220 (Mahogany). We also offer a matched set of the five armed forces seals in these styles at a discount. These low prices assume we have made a previous plaque of the same artwork design ( featured in one of our Galleries of over 2000 photos, including photos of 3-D plaques), or for new artwork, that we are provided a print-ready JPEG photo or colored drawing of the artwork for the plaque. These are styles 1.4.1 (Price Code EA, wood base) and 1.4.3 (Price Code EB, acrylic base) on our PRICE page, with examples shown on our 2-D Giclee Plaque web page.
Our carved 2.5-D multi-level or engraved hand-crafted and artist-painted plaques have prices about twice that of the 2-D flat plaques with giclee printed art. These prices depend on the size, material, carving complexity, and number of colors. Prices for custom carved 18 inch diameter 2.5-D artist-painted HDU or stained wood custom plaques vary from $240 to $370. Prices increase with size. The PRICE page gives prices for carved 2.5-D plaques of various sizes, materials, styles, and number of colors. About 80% of our military unit plaques are carved in 2.5-D multi-level flat or engraved relief, using High-Density-Urethane (HDU) as the substrate. These are very popular and look great. Many times the artwork provided to us for custom military plaques does not benefit from 3-D rendering, and we recommend a 2.5-D relief carving which looks nearly as good and is about 2/3 the price. Our 2.5-D relief plaques carve faster and are much faster to paint than 3-D bas-relief plaques, so they have lower prices. Most of our military and many of our government, university and corporate plaques are carved in 2.5-D relief.
Our premium plaques are carved in 3-D bas-relief, using wood (usually Mahogany, Cedar, or Redwood), or High-Density-Urethane (HDU) as the substrate. These are higher- priced carved 3-D bas-relief artist-painted plaques, and have prices about 3 times that of the 2-D plaques. These are very high quality plaques, which usually feature great seals, and are often ordered by higher level commands in the military services, federal and state government agencies and courts. Prices for 18 inch diameter 3-D artist-painted or bronze, brass or silver-plated HDU or stained wood custom plaques vary from $380 to $560. Prices increase with plaque size. The PRICE list gives prices for carved 3-D plaques of various sizes, materials, styles, and number of colors. These high-quality plaques may require from 8 to 24 hours of machine carving time, and then 6 to 8 hours of artisan work to hand-sand and artist-brush paint or metal polish them. They are unique works-of-art for our most discriminating clients.
