PLAQUE MOUNTING IDEAS & DETAILSPrice Calculator & Order Form
SINCE 2015, our process no longer necessarily requires the use of the original document. Most original documents can now be scanned and digitally duplicated directly on the surface of the plaque. In this case you receive your original back with the duplicate being plaque mounted. This allows easy access to the original for future use and a way for professionals to order multiple plaques for display in multiple offices without needing to attain new certificates or diplomas. However, it is suggested you allow us to use the original in cases where there is a raised/embossed seal on the document OR if your document contains metallic foil (like a seal); the mirror like reflectance of metallic foil is not perfectly reproducable. So if you wish the metallic foil on your plaque to mantain its reflective nature then check the "mount original" box on the order form. If you are not sure, write a note to ask us to review your submitted original and we will give you our opinion.
