Fig. 2 -The custom plaques on this page celebrate the family and the home. Plaques that tell a story of your marriages, children, parents, and memorials can signify important people and events in your life.


In this photo gallery we display indoor wall plaques for the home and for families.  These plaques can be ordered in any size from 12  inches in diameter to 4  feet in diameter, depending on complexity. 

We make wood (Mahogany, Cedar, Walnut, Maple, Oak), artist-painted  High-Density-Urethane (HDU), and metal-plated (bronze,brass, copper, German silver, aluminum)  wall plaques as shown throughout this and other photo galleries on this website. 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 (flat relief or outline), or 3-D (sculptured bas-relief). We  have a large library of existing 3-D and 2.5-D computer geometric models that we use to carve these plaques, which greatly reduces graphic artist labor costs. Visit the  Plaque Styles section to view more detailed descriptions and many examples of painted HDU, metal-plated, and wood plaques. All our plaques are manufactured in the USA by American craftsmen.

Fig. 3 - Custom wooden plaques can be made for children's rooms. These can include the child's name, a photo , or a citation of an accomplishment of the child.

We can also combine materials on a plaque. We often use Mahogany plaque boards and carve 3-D HDU appliques which are either multi-color painted or metal-plated, to mount on the Mahogany. We often gild  V-carved text of Mahogany plaques with 24K gold or silver leaf. We can also gild areas of painted HDU plaques, usually raised text and art. We can provide a 3-D bas-relief cast bronze and aluminum memorial or living person plaque featuring the face or figure of a loved one, etc. if we are provided a good photograph.   We can also put digitally printed long-lasting full color vinyl (photos of family members or deceased, or very elaborate painted or digital art) as an applique on any HDU or wood plaque.
