Last week, I got my latest order of engraved brass nameplates for a couple of my completed models. I don’t recall where I’ve ordered from previously, but I thought I’d post a plug for this little shop in Plymouth, Michigan.
The shop is called the Engraving Connection and it’s apparently a little place that has a website, making it easy to order from them. I’m sure there are others you can find out there, but I’ve been very happy with the plates I’ve gotten from them, as well as their service, and I thought some readers here might appreciate the suggestion of a source for brass nameplates.
I use the nameplates I get from this shop to put on my model display bases and they cost me less than $20 each, shipped, and they usually arrive in about a week, though I’m sure that depends on how busy they are.
The plates shown above were ordered as 1″ x 3″ simple rectangular brass, but you can order other sizes, or request notched corners for something a little fancier. In the special instructions box, I asked to make the first line a little larger and opted for the default typeface, which I believe is Goudy.
The plates come with double-stick tape on the back, and I’ve never had a problem with them coming off. There are other options available if you so desire.
