Why Franklin Bronze Plaques?

Franklin Bronze Plaques is one of only a few plaque retailers in the United States that produces, on site, most of the products they sell. When you call Franklin Bronze Plaques, you are speaking directly to the people responsible for providing your quote and creating your design, as well as casting, finishing, inspecting and shipping your plaque.

While other plaque retailers offer to undercut our pricing or lure you in with a "quick" turnaround, we provide a top quality product with unmatched customer service. Experience our hassle-free, no worry process for yourself.

What We Offer:

We are a bronze plaque manufacturer. We don't just sell plaques, we manufacture them on site, offering our customers direct access to updated order status at any given time, often by physically tracking it down in the shop.

Free design service, free estimates, and free full-color layouts provided with each request, all at no obligation and with no hidden fees.

Estimates are generally supplied within 24 hours of receiving your request, followed by full-color layouts within one or two business days. Quantity discounts are available on larger orders.

We also provide the following long lasting plaques, bronze retirement plaques, bronze historical plaques, bronze Victorian house markers, engraved bronze plaques and bronze dedication plaques.

Special Services For You:

We offer expedited production and shipping services for those with short deadlines. Standard delivery is 4 - 5 weeks after final layout approval, depending on the size and complexity of the piece. However, if you find yourself in a time-crunch, we can expedite for shipping anywhere from five to 15 production days after your layout has been approved (certain restrictions apply). We also offer expedited shipping services through UPS and FedEx.

If expedited services are beyond your budget, we also offer presentation pieces. This is simply a full-color full-size print of your approved lay-out mounted on a piece of foam board. These are much more cost effective than expedited production/shipping, and are a nice alternative for presentation at any event.

Ordering Made Simple:

We make ordering easy. Simply call, fax or e-mail us with the text and/or images to be included in your lay-out, along with the other pertinent details (desired size, budget, background finish and mounting surface). If you're unsure of the specifics, we'll guide you through the process, offering suggestions and/or solutions.

Payment is also made easy by offering several different options. We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express, as well as payment by check. We also accept fully executed purchase orders from government agencies, school districts and municipalities.
