What is the most common mistake made when ordering a plaque?
The most common error that we see is trying to place too many characters on a line. The engraving process allows for three lines with eighteen characters per line. The order form has been designed with only 18 blocks because that is the maximum number of characters or spaces that can be inscribed on each line of the plaque. Trying to put more than one letter, number, space, or punctuation mark in a block will only delay your order until a member of the Veterans Commission can contact you to resolve the error. The Commission does not recommend running together names or words to save space as it makes the finished plaque difficult to read. If you require assistance or suggestions in completing your order form, we are happy to help; just contact any Commission member listed on the roster page of this web site or Denise Robinson at 757-515-0123 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
