The thought and passion that goes into the design and layout of a Navy Cruise plaque cannot be understated. So why are we the world's leading and most trusted designer and crafter of US Navy Cruise Plaques.
From the first time you contact us via ship's phone or email from the other side of the world the staff at American Plaque Company work with you and your team to ensure that every detail of the plaque is correct. We will produce numerous artwork version incorporating your ideas and our many years of experience. Only once the design is 100% approved by you do we start the hand carving of the wood. Not any old piece of drift wood but professionally kiln dried mahogany that is guaranteed not to warp over the years it will be displayed.
After the caving or craftsmen will work on the preparation of the surfaces to make sure that they are ready for the first coats of paint. We then concentrate on the fine detail and the hand painting of the ships' crests, squadron/battalion patches and of course the ships, airplanes and helicopters and strange mythical creatures that appear on many of these plaques.
Once finished in painting the plaque goes through it's internal quality assurance and on to finishing for the lacquer coatings.
After final QA, we send detailed close up photographs of the finished plaque to you for pre-shipping approval. If you are not 100% satisfied the plaque is not shipped and all amendments are made. Once we have approval from you the plaque id couriered anywhere in the world in time for your presentation ceremony.
We can even make you smaller versions of the large cruise plaque for personal awards.
