How long does it take to receive a plaque once the order has been placed?
Plaques for our Veterans Memorial are manufactured by a company located in Oregon. Under normal circumstances it takes from 6 to 8 weeks for receipt of a plaque once the order has been placed. As a general rule of thumb, we strongly recommend that plaques be ordered at least 10 weeks before a desired delivery date. Please keep in mind when ordering a plaque that there is a significant increase in demand for plaques placed on the manufacturer during the months just prior to Memorial Day and Veterans Day that could possibly impact delivery time. Another consideration in regards to delivery time is that the Commission generally will wait until they have a minimum of five plaque requests before making an order. This procedure is in place to save on shipping charges. Regardless of the number of plaque requests, an order is submitted monthly.
