We will help you design personalized brass plaques (brass nameplates) that can be attached to:

Full-size College Chairs

We typically install nameplates on the rear of a chair’s crown (headboard).  Normally, these nameplate (plaques) are centered on the rear of the crown.  Some clients have requested them off-center and some have requested multiple engraved plates.   On other chairs, clients have requested nameplates in other positions on chairs.   We are very flexible and will place the plaque as requested by our clients.  Chairs are most often created in a size of 2 inches by 4 inches, but we will make your plates in a size that is most appropriate for the text that each clients requests.

if you would imagine a text on a plate measuring 2” x 4” or 3” x 4”, plan for a message that would be legible on such a plate.   We simply ask clients to be reasonable in their expectations for a message on the plate.   Usually, 3-4 lines of text is a good choice.   It always pays to keep things simple.  Too many crowded characters and lines may render the plate illegible.

Miniature Chairs

We reserve an area at the front of each base of our miniature college chairs for the installation of metal nameplates to commemorate a recipient or a special event.  The size of the plaque is somewhat smaller than those on full-size chairs – generally around 3.5 inches by 1 inch, but we are flexible regarding size of plaques.   On plates of miniature chairs, it is always best to keep the text brief.


We typically print your text on the plate in black font.  We can also include a logo, if we deem the logo to be suitable (depending the level of detail).  Sometimes the addition of logos is dependent on available space on the plate.  We always ask our clients to create their desired text in their preferred font.  Then, we can transfer their text directly to their nameplate.


“The brass plaque on our chair really personalized our chair.”


Be sure to make your preferences known.  We have flexibility to vary your plate material, content, and presentation.  Our objective is to make personalized plates that meet your objectives and please your honoree.
