Laminated plaques are the alternative to picture frames.

Custom laminated plaque vs Frame (glass)

There is something about buying a frame that will never be duplicated.  My wife for example loves to go and pick out frames and really gets into color matching, room decor, style.  Local frame shops and unique framing places are great for this type of purchasing and experience.  But you can only go so far with a frame and most of the time it will be emcompassed in glass and be very breakable and the content will be exposed more frequently and not last quite as long as a laminated plaque.   

Plaque vs Frame let's take a closer look. 

At first we thought to ourselves the two items the plaque and the frame could not coexist with one another on the same wall.  Then we received a photo from one of our customers.   Capriott's a famous sandwich shop sent us this photo.  To our surprise there they where one on top of the other together harmonizing on the same wall.laminated plaque vs frame  

For years we have been competing against the frame industry and it turns out the two are not really the same.  In fact they can exist together on the same wall.  In our opinion the wall plaque and the frame are two different entities. 

So there you have it the long debate over which one of the two styles was the better boils down to they both have there place on your wall.

Hopefully consider the next time In The News calls and you already have had your article framed, or the publisher is sending you something for free (consider the source free) you remember this day and that the plaque and the frame can live together on one wall. 

With an In The News wall plaque  you get a personal touch. Every plaque is handcrafted by our designers using the industries latest state-of-the-art equipment. We’ll mount the original article to a ¾ inch wood base, which is then hand-stained, beveled, and set with trim according to your preferences. To secure against natural deterioration and wear, the article is laminated and heat-sealed to the wood, producing a semi-gloss finish. Each plaque includes a personalized engraved plate that details your achievement in gold or silver lettering with a black overlay. The precise workmanship of our skilled team is evident in each and every finished piece.
