Engraved brass plaque ...
« on: September 22, 2012, 02:00:56 PM »

I just thought I'd make a small recommendation for these chaps... I've no link with them other than I wanted a small brass plaque to go on my Pond Yacht that I'm restoring, to go on the hatch when I've finished varnishing it and thought I'd give them a try. They did this for me for me on Jewellers Brass with black script, sticky backed, for the grand total of £3.20, which I thought in this day and age was very good. Their service was excellent, fast and faultless.  :-)) Happy to recommend them if anyone needs similar !

I just asked him for a very small brass oval one  and he quoted me £15 which I'm happy with. He keeps the plan electronically so repeats are easy and I'll only need to change the date. It's much cheaper than any other quote I've had.
