Get In Touch

Very often when we're published we buy 10 copies of the publication. A plaque is forever and provides a lifetime documentation of news about you. Give the generations to come the gift of family information for their heritage.


"Virdette, my mother LOVED the plaque. I cannot put into words how much she does. She even called one day this weekend to say she was just sitting looking at it. Needless to say, I will be ordering mine soon. Thanks a million." 

- Joy

"My wife and I presented the plaque to Raymond... Raymond was so proud he carried the plaque around to show everybody. Thank you for helping with this. It was so worth it!"

- Rich

"I just wanted to let you know how pleased my family and I are of the plaque that arrived. Once again, thank you very much for the wonderful craftsmanship that was done on the plaque to preserve such lasting memories of an important event!"

- The Mujica Family

"I wanted to let you know that one of my hair care specialists showed me her beautiful plaque and I told her I had two from the same company! You are doing it!"
